Repeatet Loops not endless

• Apr 23, 2019 - 15:04

I would like to be able to

Set Loop Start
Set Loop End
Set number of Loops

When a loop is enabled honor the number of loops when exporting to sound file.

Thanks for your comment.

Here is a more detailed description what I would like to have

Fiddle Tune Part A and Part B

Part A and Part B both have the standard begin repeat |: and end repeat :|

Now I select the whole score. Then I select the 'Toggle Loop Playback' and it plays the whole score. That is fine.

Here it is where I would like to play the whole score let' s say only 4 times and export the score to a mid or mp3 file. This would give a perfect sound file for those who want to learn by ear.

If you have questions just ask.

Actually, it sounds like LeeBaron is asking for something similar to my request, which is the ability to specify the number of times a whole score, containing measure repeats, can loop (see link below). I suggested providing an option in the inspector to specify the number of DC repeats, among other possibilities. In programs like Ableton, one can specify the number of times a loop is to be repeated when exporting to mp3 or wav. Being able to specify the number of loops in Musecore would be helpful for learning. My original suggestion would work both for playback in Musescore and audio file exporting.

"Feature request: add ability to specify number of repeats for whole score."

Sorry for not answering earlier. I was absorbed in a project that kept me from music.

Yea it is exactly what I am after, I only can imagin that developers did not understand what what we are asking for. It is a pitty they do not care to call back and ask.

There have been several discussions on how to do what you are asking including the linked one above. There are other discussions that suggested the user be able to define blocks of music with labels like A, B and C. The user would tell MuseScore to play blocks AABACBCAB if the user wants and it would play the blocks of music in the arbitrary order requested by the user.

My point is that yours is yet another suggestion and not a ground breaking idea that would get any particular developer excited about a possible solution. Someone answered you and no one felt compelled to add anything to the conversation several months ago.

Thank you for your statement. There are may ways to skin a cat. The suggestion to label parts A, B, C, D. etc. and have Musescore to play these in any desired way is known to me from using AbcExplorer.
In AbcExplorer sommething like P:(ABCA)4 would play the parts in the specified order and then repeat it 4 times. And the best of it: if you export to midi it records it as (ABCA)4 . if AbcExpoere were able to do tab I would stick with it.

I Musescore could duplicate AbcExporere's way of handling it, I would be more than happy. Maybe not groundbreaking but extremely usefull for me

Nonetheless I appreciate your comment. Now I know somebody did care.
