No Audio in Dorico 5 Pro (Win 11)


I’ve just downloaded the trial of Dorico 5 Pro, but cannot get any sound to play back. When I try to play a file, the mixers all show no activity.

In HALion, clicking the keyboard similarly results in no sound, even with an instrument loaded.

I have followed the troubleshooting video, but when I get to this part at 4:00, where I should be able to hear the notes audition, I hear no sound and see no activity in the mixer.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Edit /Device Setup /Sample Rate.
did you check that?
Output settings.
First Instrument =Main out, second instrument =out2 etc…

Thanks, yes I did check there. I’ve tried several sample rates, and have tried both the Generic ASIO and the Creative ASIO that corresponds to my sound card, but none of these changes have made a difference.

Did you Reboot?

First Instrument =Main out, second instrument =out2 etc…

I did try rebooting a few times.

I’m not sure that it’s an output issue, since the mixer is showing no activity, but the outputs do seem to be set correctly.

do you use the correct playback template?
such as HSSE+HSO+GASE ?
in: Preferences /Play /Playback Template

That is the template I’m currently set to.

there are some problems, once in a while with Dorico 5 and Sound driver.
Maybe you could try the “FlexAsio”- driver


Thank you, the FlexASIO is working!

If anyone knows how to get the Creative ASIOs to work, that would be great, but if not I’m all set.

Many thanks, Fes_Lehu!
