Repeats

Post by padscot » Wed Feb 01, 2017 1:38 pm

I've written out a tune with four sections, each of which is repeated. I've put D.C. al fine at the end. The sections are repeated the first time through, but when playback goes back to the beginning, it omits the repeats. Not sure what I'm doing wrong here, and would appreciate any guidance you can give. File attached (I hope).
Very impressed with the programme so far, though
Cheers
Paddy

Hi Paddy,

You did everything correctly. The usual convention following DC or DS is to omit repeats. I'll look at adding a configuration option in a future version to play repeats following DC or DS. For now, a possible workaround would be to duplicate each section with copy and paste and omit the repeats, or put a note to performers in the score that repeats are required after the DC If you want a fancy term, you could use "Da capo con repetizione".

OK, thanks for clarifying that, and I'll look forward to the option to retain the repeats. I play mostly sessions and ceilidhs, so having the repeats helps the music and the dance end together.
Cheers
Paddy
