I recently installed Finale on my Windows 10 PC. At the time, I had all of the normal audio drivers that come installed. I started having issues with MIDI latency and my microphone not working, and so I installed the ASIO audio driver, because I read that it helps with latency. Once I did that, Finale started falling apart. Suddenly, it wouldn't play back midi. I changed the MIDI settings, and then it would only play on my speakers and not in my headphones. I updated drivers, and then it wouldn't play MIDI at all. I restarted the program, looked up 1 million fixes, uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled Finale, and nothing works. Earlier today, I had it to the point where I could hear MIDI using the WASAPI sound settings in Finale, but couldn't use my microphone. I changed absolutely 0 settings, but plugged in a USB mic, and now MIDI does not work again no matter what I do.
I'm so confused... all of my hardware and software works fine with other programs. I've researched so many fixes and nothing works. I think Finale is interacting badly with my audio drivers, but since they're all the factory default I don't know how to change those. I'm confused because it seems to be switching between working/not working even when I'm not doing anything.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
