Dorico 5.1 Playback Issue in NotePerformer 4

Anyone else having playback issues since updating to 5.1? As I playback a file create in 5.0, I get spotty playback of everything. It is as if I get about 1/2 second of each second’s information. Uh…help?

Hi @David_MacKenzie,
Would better if are able to provide a reduced sample of the problematic project to the team, and an audio example of problem.
Do you experience this issue with any other Playback Template?
You could replace the PT and check if the problem still occurs.

It might be worth reviewing your settings in Edit > Device Setup. For example, try increasing the buffer size to see if that improves performance.

Well, in preparation for creating those examples for you, I saved everything and restarted the PC. Voila, the problem resolves itself. I imagine I forgot to restart the comp after downloading 5.1. Sorry to bother you…:face_with_peeking_eye:

@David_MacKenzie,
I’m glad that now everything works fine! :slight_smile:
Even if Dorico doesn’t ask for Windows restart after installing a new update, I would recommend you to do it every time you update/upgrade the app. :slight_smile:

Best wishes,
