Using play panel

• Jun 22, 2020 - 10:10

I often use the Play Panel to set a loop for 1-2 measures to check out different comping rhythms. So, my frustration concerns the fact that a play cursor jumps first to the beginning of the score then jumps to a loop in marker causing the whole score to jerk, and, I guess this jumping creates some delay, so the loop doesn't keep time. And this jumping also jerks the sound.
Also, if the last note of the loop is a note of a triplet it is not possible to set a loop out marker on this note - it goes into the next measure, so the loop doesn't play correctly. So, there are 3 in 1 unpleasant problems with the Play Panel.


to loop a few bars, I do not take the playpanel. I simply mark the area to be repeated and then press the "Toggle loop playback" button in the toolbar. This also works for looping within a triplet. And without delay.

I think that the "jump to the beginning of the score" effect you see is because that is where the "written out" version of the repeated drum pattern is located. If I copy and past that to measure 9 I don't see any jump when looping measures 9 and 10. It appears as if MuseScore has to position the cursor to re-read the pattern before it plays the loop. However, I don't know what actually goes on behind the scenes during loop playback.
