Question about repeat toggle and voltas
I'm trying to understand how voltas work in conjunction with the repeat toggle.
I have attached a very simple example with just one repeat sign, and 2 voltas.
When "play repeats" is enabled, everything plays as expected, which is to say, measures play in the following order :
1, 2, 1, 3
When "play repeats" is disabled, however, measures plays as :
1, 2, 3
This is somewhat confusing and doesn't match typical performance. The expected playback of measures if you skip the repeat would be :
In other words, you are not supposed to hear the 2 endings (measures 2 and 3) being played consecutively.
I looked at some scores which have multiple endings, for example, OpenGoldberg variation 6. I toggled "play repeats" off. I also see this problem there - the multiple endings in the first half on measures 16, 17 and 18 are played consecutively, which should never happen. Same problem with the second half and the multiple endings being played consecutively at measures 34, 35 and 36.
Is there a way to notate the score in MuseScore in such a way that setting "play repeats" to off will achieve the desired behavior, ie. skip directly to the second ending ?
