First and Second Endings Sound Volume

• Jan 28, 2021 - 13:39

Hi Everyone,

A formatting issue: I have two endings, with first and second brackets, which play through as expected except the second ending is much louder than the first ending. I'm not sure if there's merely a volume difference or the first ending notes are being held in some way or something else. I tried re-setting the brackets, removing the slurs, and other things. I don't remember ever having this problem before so I must have done something wrong with the input.

Anyway, I'm posting here an image of the endings. Probably an obvious mistake that I hope I'll get as soon as I post this.

Thanks, as always, for any help!

Hi Everyone,

There is a simple fix for this specific problem which I now realize I had used in the past: instead of placing a tie between the notes leading into the first repeat, use a slur and then connect the notes between the two repeats with a slur as well. The holdover volume problem is solved and playback is now normal. The slur can be adjusted to look like a tie.

Just in case someone has this specific issue.

Thanks for all the help.
