Playback doesn't cope with DC al Fine with repeats and 1st and 2nd Volta

• Oct 26, 2014 - 22:59

I have a problem with DC al Fine. I attach small file as illustration. The playback plays the first repeated section, correctly plays the 2nd Volta and repeats the second section. The DC al Fine plays back from the start as expected but doesn't stop at Fine as it should but plays the first bar of the 2nd Volta and then stops. Any help would be much appreciated.

The norm in music is to not take repeats on a DS. That means the first ending is normally skipped, so any Fine within it would not be seen. True, a human musician would probably notice the Fine and decide to break the rule in this case, but MuseScore isn't that flexible. Both for its sake and the sake of human musicians reading your score, you should probably use a coda rather than bury the Fine with the first ending.
