Operating on windows 10 finale 25

For some reason my playback just stopped working suddenly. I get no progress, only a "One or more midi devices not responding" message. Have tried running the app data and different suggestions with the finmidi file but nothing has worked. Submitted a request for help but their suggestion didn't work. Please help!!!

Are you trying to use the Aria Player or Finale's internal MIDI SoftSynth? You would make the choice under the MIDI/Audio menu.

I have the Aria Player installed. Currently, Play finale through VST is selected. I have tried switching to play through MIDI as suggested on another forum. Still no luck.

What does your MIDI/Audio > Device Setup > Audio Setup look like? Sometimes another program will change the driver setting. I have best luck with DirectSound, but others' milage may vary.

 

 

I would also check Banks & Effects. For some reason, I have lately found that on random occasions all the volume settings have been reset to zero. It's a puzzle why; never used to happen and does not happen often now--but it's worth a check.

I have an updated Finale 26.  All worked well  while I was putting notes in but I cannot get it to play back.  I did what you said above with no results.

Have you checked the Windows output chain to be sure that Finale and your OS are connected and using the same output resolution (that both are in 41.1K or 44Kh or the like--I forget the exact numbers, but they should be the same). I am guessing that other programs do produce sounds for you.

 

Did the DirectSound option stick? Mine kept shifting back until Finale Support gave me instructions to fix that. Which brings us to the question whether you have contacted Finale Support directly via the "Submit a request" link at the top of the page.

 

Hope you can get this solved soon. It would drive me crazy if this happened.
