Hello everyone!
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!

You might want to check out this thread, it might provide you with some useful information .

You should also perhaps consider joining and posting your problem on this (other) forum, which is much more active and generally very helpful.

First of all you should definitely try this: Try recreating finmidi.ini.

Quit Finale, then look in C:\Users\(your login)\AppData\Roaming\MakeMusic\Finale whatever

Rename FINMIDI.INI to something else and relaunch Finale. If this doesn't change anything for the better, you can put the old one back.

Thank you for the advice! I tried recreating the FINMIDI file and sadly it did not work.

I have found my best luck with Playback is with the DirectSound driver.

 

Microphone setup (IIRC) is done via the Windows Control Panel settings.
