Sound Plays Through Speakers When Headphones Plugged In

Post by themerryonion » Tue Jan 24, 2017 12:05 am

Hey all,

My Macbook Pro plays all the sounds through my USB-connected headphones, except for when I'm using Finale 2014. I've tried changing the computer audio settings, with no luck. Even when I mute the computer sound, it doesn't always mute Finale.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum.

You might try upgrading to 2014.5.

In Finale go to the menu MIDI/AUDIO>Device Setup>Audio Setup>Output>Source>??? (Change to USB or something similar instead of the default Built-in Output) which will probably solve this. You may have to do this each time you launch Finale.

I have to do something similar for my Bluetooth headphones, which are then identified by their Sony model designation as the output source.

Here it is 2019 and I'm having the same problem with the latest version of Finale. Headphones are plugged into the computer, they work fine with EVERY other sound-producing app EXCEPT Finale. Finale insists on playing sounds through the computer speakers.

FINALE PEOPLE, haven't you solved this yet? Has anyone? Please?

I've tried through both VST (computer speakers) and through MIDI (no sound at all), and gone to the Device Setup > Audio Setup and there's only one playback device listed (the one installed on my computer).

How can I get Finale to render playback through my headset/external speakers??

This is a user forum. The Finale people don’t come here. I suggest you go to https://makemusic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/topics, log into your account, and submit a request to them.

Try this......

Midi Audio / Device Setup / Audio set up

Then select your headphones

This was driving me nuts too!

Also set from 44.1 to 96, and buffer 4096.
Finale is 16/96, should sound a little better!
