Repeat problem

• Jul 15, 2011 - 02:23

I can't seem to get the volta correct on this score for the repeats. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

There are several problems. First, the first volta needs to have a repeat list of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. The last measure of the volta needs to have a repeat count of 8. Find the result attached. I also put some line break to make the music more readable, because after all, it's the goal ;) Feel free to remove them.

Everything is done manually, by humans. The instructions is to have the english handbook as the master and to translate it to make the other handbooks. But, of course, instructions are not there to be respected... :) and so some translators take some freedom to explain more or less in their languages.

When you add an attachment (screenshot, file) to a handbook page, that attachement is pushed forward to all the translations of that page. Handbook translators can then decide to use the attachments from the English page, or attach a more localized version of the attachment.

I've updated the book entry on Volta to add a bit about the Repeat List. I didn't know how it worked either, so I've been experimenting.

Lasconic, I think I found an issue with repeats. In the example file in this post, even if I remove and drop in two new voltas (1 and 2) and leave the default values alone (volta 1 is 1. and repeat list of 1, volta 2 is 2), the piece will repeat volta 1 about 5 times before finally finishing. Why?

Also, when I create a simple example, drop a 1'st and 2'nd volta, and modify them so the first has a repeat list of 1,2,3,4 and the second has 5, it will only repeat once and on the second repeat it will play the first and the second ending. Why?

I wanted to add something extra about the repeat list. Do the numbers in the Repeat List need to be unique for each volta?

Yes, I am aware of some of them, but I didn't see (or try) this one before. It is probably related to the third in my list of repeat issues, but I added this particular case as an addendum to the issue.

Could you explain how the repeat list is supposed to work? I want to make sure my write-up on the Volta page is accurate and complete.
