Playback problems - Waits 4 beats at end of each line & No sound part way through

• Apr 30, 2017 - 01:42

What is wrong with the attached .mscz file?

I entered a variation of a song manually into MuseScore, and then made some modifications to it.

(1) When I play it back, the playback waits an extra four beats at the end of each line.

(2) Also, part way through (beginning where I added a rehearsal mark that says "Interlude"), it continues to play back (panning through the score) but with no sound.

If it is an error that I created, kindly shed light on what I did and how to fix it.

If it is a MuseScore bug, please let me know that, so that I can look forward to a future fix.

I am running MuseScore 2.0.3 under Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

1) When you insert a section break, the playback insert a short pause. Use line breaks instead of.
2) It's useful, when you insert a crescendo/decrescendo (hairpins) also to insert dynamics, when not done before.

Note: But I'm not sure if 2) is a minor bug, because I didn't find any dynamics before an by default the dynamic of a score is "mf" (?).

OMG, Those are section breaks! I had meant to insert line breaks! Thank you.

I added an "mf" after the decrescendo, and the latter part of the song plays fine now.

Thank you so much for your help. I am delighted that the problems were only user errors; those are much easier to fix.
