No drum sounds

I had a song with a drum part which would have the drum sounds when I played it back before, but after I upgraded to v. 1.0.2 now playback has no sounds at all. Tried re-starting the app and closing and re-opening the song but that did not help. Please help!

    Sorry, forgot to indicate that this problem is on iPad/iOS 7.0.4.

    Hey Arnaldo, sorry for the trouble!

    Do you know if this is happening with just that particular song or if drums don't play in any song? I suspect it's specific to this song because I'm able to hear drums in my songs. Would you mind sending the song to me so I can see what's going on with it? You can just email it straight from the app to [email blocked].

    I tried other songs (the ones that come with app) and they have no sound either. The ability to email the songs is also greyed out. I can not email files. <br /><br />Arnaldo

    Hmmm, very strange...just no drum sounds, right? The other sounds play okay?

    Typically the only reason you wouldn't be able to email a file is if you don't have any email accounts set up on your iPad. Although if this problem is happening in every document there shouldn't be any need to send me any files.

    I'm a little stumped on this one at the moment...I'll investigate and try to get back to you tomorrow. Really sorry for the trouble!

    Thanks so much for the help! Yes, it's true, I don't have any email setup on my iPad, so that's why. And it's all sounds, not just the drum parts. Today I'm going to try deleting the app and re-installing it. Hopefully that will take care of it. <br /><br />Arnaldo

    Deleted app and re-installed it. Still no sound. Added a new song. No sound. It's just not working for me at all. <br /><br />Arnaldo

    Apologies for the late reply! I'm having a really hard time figuring out how this could be happening unfortunately. Sound works fine in any other app you try, right? What exactly happens when you press the play button? Does the red playback marker appear and move across the score as though it's playing?

    Sorry I don't have a solution for you yet! If we can't get this figured out, I'll be happy to refund the Tabular+ upgrade if you've purchased it.

    I figured it out! It's not a problem with the app. What happens is that when I mute ringer sounds on my iPad it also mutes the sounds from Tabular for some reason, but it doesn't mute the sound from other apps like Music, Safari, etc.<br /><br />Thanks for your attention to this issue!<br /><br />Arnaldo

    Oh, I'm so glad you figured it out! You're right that it shouldn't be muting the playback -- I'll make sure to get that fixed. Thanks for letting me know!
