Volta 1, 2, 3 then volta 4?

• Jun 26, 2020 - 19:03

Hello. I am not sure if this is intended or not, but I cannot get the first volta (1, 2, 3) to repeat 3 times, then jump to the second volta (4). Any help is appreciated.

That's because Shoichi increased the play count not enough, it must be one higher than the number of items in the repeat list of the volta.
Your volta has 3 entries (1,2,3) thus the play count should be 4 to force the repeat go to the start once more after the last play of the volta.

The issue is the start repeat at the start of the volta, which is tripping up the interpretation.
The first pass through the volta, it is evaluated still before the start repeat (so in relation to the start of the score), only after that is it compared against that start repeat.

Have a bar inbetween the start repeat and the start of the volta and all will work out.
