Second time only

• Oct 10, 2019 - 22:28

Is there a feature within Muse Score to make an instrument play on the second time through a repeated phrase only?


if you want that for your play-back, impossible, you must duplicated the passage. If you want only for the player, simply write "2nd time only or TACET 1st Time"

I would like to add that in a lot of occasions the 2nd time differs slightly from the first time. For example, the horns play mf 1st time, and f the 2nd time.
It would be great to find a solution. I understand that you can copy paste the score, but you really want to keep the score as compact as possible.

Of course if playback is vital, like making an MP3, you can use Tools->Unroll repeats, edit playback and you have the best of both worlds. A readable score and one that plays properly. You just have to either maintain both or unroll the score every time since they aren't linked.
