Help with Voltas
I want to structure my score so that twelve measures in the middle section are repeated. And, I want the very first measure of those twelve to be different the second time the section is repeated.
I believe the correct way to notate this is by having Volta brackets, a '1.' volta bracket on the first 'version' of the first measure, and a '2.' volta bracket on the second 'version'. However, I can't seem to find the right way to get what I want: currently, the software plays it back so that the '2.' volta bracket is correctly skipped the first time, but on the second repeat, the '1.' volta is played again, followed by the '2.' volta (instead of skipping the '1.' volta, playing '2.', and repeating the rest of the section.
Can anyone help with this? I would really appreciate help in understanding what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it.
I'm uploading a simplified version of the score I'm writing. The full score is a variation of this one (https://musescore.com/user/37109046/scores/6647257), but I took out some measures, to focus on the problematic volta/repeat measures.
Thanks in advance for your help!
