I've had a playback problem with Finale 2006C ever since I installed it. I've talked to a few technicians at Finale and I get different reasons from all of them. One of the reasons is that my sound card is too high-end. I have a M-Audio 1010LT and I don't think, although it's good card, it is by no means high-end, and how can a sound card be too high-end. In order for me to get the playback to start correctly I have to insert a bar at the beginning and end of the piece. It does all of the above including not recognizing a pizz. or any other articulation if it is on the first beat of the bar. But, as I said, it will play correctly if an empty bar is inserted in front of the piece. Sometimes the tempo speeds up somewhere in the middle of it and this can happen anywhere in the piece.
My CPU is 3.20Ghtz
the RAM is 3 Gigs with space for another gig but, I shouldn't think I needed any more RAM.
The driver setting is ASIO - M-AUDIO Delta ASIO
I've heard similar complaints at the Finale Forum but to my knowledge, this has never been resolved.
I would be most grateful if someone could give me a clue to what's going on.
