For context, I’m on a Macbook Pro running OS 10.15.5, and Dorico 3.5. I have been experiencing all these issues in Dorico 2/3, as well as previous versions of MacOS. I have tried every troubleshooting tip I can find, from simply restarting to creating an aggregate device in Audio Midi Setup (which I have since deleted). These problems are consistent, and while I love Dorico, it has become a pain to use.
Connecting to bluetooth speakers or headphones is incredibly difficult. It usually requires multiple restarts, as well as manually selecting the bluetooth device in Dorico each time to connect. Often I am left with no sound at all, including the ability to go back to my Macbook speakers (without further restarts).
Same problems as bluetooth, although usually requires less restarts, and can often be fixed by manually selecting the headphones in preferences. Never works automatically. However, if I plug or unplug headphones, about 50% of the time the program will freeze (rainbow wheel of death) and I will have to force quit.
This probably isn’t a problem for many users, but I wish it wasn’t a problem at all. When I have my EWI plugged in, instruments will go out of tune with other instruments within Dorico. This makes playback impossible to listen to. To clarify, I am not using my EWI for Dorico at all, it’s plugged in to use in Logic. However, it still interferes with the program.
To reiterate, I really love Dorico, but these problems are driving me crazy! Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.
