How to do multiple repeats properly?

• Mar 25, 2015 - 00:54

How should I notate multiple repeats with variations? I think the attached notation is corect and if I set the repeat counter of measure 3 to the value of 5 the score should play the parts A, B, C, and D (in the test file these parts are only single measures) in the sequence A, B, A, B, A, C, A, C, A, D. However, it plays A, B, C, A, B, (A and D together!), B, A, C, A, C, D. (Here, MuseScore 2.0 performs diffrent than MuseScore 1.3.)

Well, you should have a repeat bar at the end of the first ending - that's the first problem. Beyond that, it seems the volta properties and measure repeat counts are also not set correctly. Once the necessary repeat is added, set the repeat counts for the 1-2 and 3-4 endings to 3 (since you want both played three times), and the volta properties for each to 1-2 (since you want each to be played the first and second time *that particular repeat* is reached.
