Hi There. I have Overture 4 which I am using on a Mac OS X 10.6.8. I have written a string quartet and while the violins play, I can't get either the viola or the cello to sound. I even changed the "p" to an "mf" hoping that would do it....but I don't get any sound at all. I'd appreciate some advice on how to solve this problem. Julie

Are they on separate midi channels?

Hi Julie,
Have you checked your settings in the Tracks window (Cmd-Shift-T)? Each instrument should be assigned to a different channel. Each channel has to be assigned a playback instrument, e.g. Quicktime/Viola etc. Also check that viola and cello are not muted. Those are the causes that immediately spring to my mind.
Hope that helps, if not let us know.
John
