I am planning to buy my daughter composing software for her birthday. She currently has Finale Notepad, and I was planning to get the full version, but when I read the reviews of Dorico, it sounded amazing, so I downloaded the trial for her.
She loves working on it but cannot get the sound to play. She and I have spent hours trying to solve it. I have searched forums and am, frankly, a little lost with all the “fixes.” I don’t know what driver I am looking for. My setup says General Low Latency ASIO. I don’t know what else to look for. I don’t know about Cubase or the location of Halion drivers. I found the 11 step instructions to one person on getting sound back incredibly time consuming & complicated. I decided to send you an email, but I have spent the last hour trying to submit a form that I can’t get all the info to fill (cannot find the e Licenser info requested). I am thoroughly frustrated at this point and am about ready to call it quits w/ Dorico based on trying to get help alone.
I have tried updating the driver for the sound output on my computer. I have checked the mixer levels. When I test the sound on my computer, it won’t test at all or work in other programs when Dorico is open. I have to close out to test.
We have an Asus w/ Intel i7, 64 bit, running (I think) Windows 8.
