I know that there have been several threads over the past several years about problems with playback. I’m hoping my situation is <> simple because up until 2 hours ago, I had been using Dorico 3.5 for more than 6 months on a number of projects inputting and playing back MIDI data with absolutely no problem. Today, I had to take my entire (but really simple) setup apart to move to a new space. I hooked everything back up and to my amazement, Dorico is no longer playing back. I have restarted my Mac laptop and restarted Dorico several times to no avail. In Playback mode, I can see that MIDI data is coming in, but it’s clearly not making it to my output speakers. I literally didn’t change anything when I unhooked and rehooked up my system. However, clearly I have triggered a gremlin somewhere in the chain. Here is a description of my very simple/primitive (but very adequate for the work I’m doing) system:
Macbook Pro (2019) 16-inch running Mojave (10.14.6)
Aleis V49 MIDI controller (which I added in the Play mode window) connected via USB to an Apple 15-in monitor (circa 2016)
I listed to the first bit of a tutorial on problems with playback and it said that in the Play mode window, you needed to see HALion VST components loaded. I don’t see that (all I see is NotePerformer3)…however, I don’t recall seeing anything in that window other than NotePerformer (although I admit that I seldom visit that window).
Any ideas from a distance? I can’t image what changed and I suspect it may have something to do with the necessary sequence of starting things up although I think I’ve tried all the permutations and combinations of rebooting that I can think of.
Thank you in advance. I hope someone can get me out of this corner…
