Stuttering Playback/Missing Notes

Hi. On playback, whether it is my music or a sample, Dorico misses more than 2/3 of the notes. For example, “The Swan” has several fast flute runs and Dorico only plays one note out of a group of seven or eight, as though it can’t keep up. It seems like a buffering issue, but I don’t know.

I have a brand-new MS Surface Studio with the max CPU, memory, and SSD available, and CPU usage is showing less than 5% use with Dorico running, so I think the specs are OK (see below).

Ideas? Thanks. --Konrad

Dorico 4.3.20
Windows 11
MS Surface Studio 32GB, 2TB SSD
11th Gen Intel Core i7-11370@3.30GHz
ASIO: Generic Low Larency ASIO Driver
Sample Rate: 48000 (no other drop-down)
Default playback template: HSDE+HSO (Pro)
Preferred HALion plug-in: HALion Sonic
NOTE: I will probably use something other than HALion later, but first I’d like to get the basics working.

Try with a different ASIO driver, namely FlexASIO. It’s for free and can be downloaded from here. After you restarted Dorico, you will find FlexASIO in the list of drivers under Edit > Device Setup.

Thanks very much. As long as I can go back to the default (just in case), that sounds great. On my rack-mount studio machine, I am definitely not using Windows defaults. :slight_smile: (This is for my laptop which is going to be m,y composition machine.)

Problem was solved with FlexASIO. Thank you, Ulf!

Then, to be fair, shouldn’t Ulf get the solutions check mark?

Sure. I didn’t know the protocol. I changed it.
