Most of the time, I just get no sound at all. A few times I have gotten sound, and then it works fine (no glitches). Also, when it’s working, and I have headphones plugged in, I don’t see the headphones as an option in the device control panel, so can only use the speakers. When it doesn’t work, I look to see that other audio applications aren’t running. I suppose there could be a wayward process in the background or something like that, but nothing I’m aware of.
I haven’t found a pattern. (For example, rebooting, or closing and relaunching Dorico, doesn’t predictably get it working again.)
The Generic Low Latency Driver doesn’t work with Max (neither do the standard Windows drivers), so I use ASIO4ALL with Max when I’m not using my interface.
I looked at Bitwig, which shows a Wasapi driver, which works great. The Low Latency driver throws an error in Bitwig. So there is inconsistency with it from application to application.
Is there anything I can do to try to figure this out? As it is now, I don’t dependably have the use of Dorico with sound with the laptop alone. I guess I’ll just try to see if I can find some pattern, but if you have suggestions what I might look for, that’d be great.
I also use StaffPad, which works great in terms of audio – they don’t even have settings within the program, you just use the windows speaker icon to select output. That’d be the ideal for me. Maybe that works because StaffPad is a “store” app and not a desktop app. Anyway, advice is welcome, and I’ll try to see if there’s a pattern.
