Voltas at the beginning of the repeated sequence of measures

• Apr 19, 2021 - 13:56

I have such notes.
I am attaching a Musescore file with parts marked with letters: A, B1, B2, C, D1, D2, E.

I would like them to go like this:
A -> B1 -> C -> D1 -> B2 -> C -> D2 -> E

But playback plays them like this:
A -> B1 -> C -> D1 -> B1 -> B2 -> C -> D2 -> E

What is wrong?
Thank you in advance for your help

Well.. when you add a measure in front, then your volta is no longer at the same starting point as the start repeat, making it an "ending" again.

There is an order of processing these things, and here the volta is logically "in front of" the start repeat, so when returning to the start repeat you arrive still "after" the volta logic. The reason for that processing order is to allow for valid scores such as:
𝄞 m1 𝄀 m2 𝄆 m3 𝄀 m4 𝄀 (volta1 m5 𝄀 m6 𝄇)(volta2 𝄆 m7 𝄀 m8 𝄀 (volta 1 m9 𝄇) 𝄀 (volta2 m10 𝄀 m11 𝄂
For which the playback order is:
1-6, 3-4, 7-9, 7-8, 10-11
