Playback silent on voltas and will not repeat

• May 19, 2024 - 13:14

I have read all the posts here as well as the handbook trying to find why playback stops when it reaches the first volta. I have applied all the remedies as posted previously but it still will not work! I have attached a copy of the music for you to see. Please may some kind person help me fix what is not working so that playback is correct?

You have used the wrong settings in the volta properties and in the properties of measure 18:

  • Measure 18 must have the value "Play count: 3". The repeating sequence should be played three times. Right click on measure 18 to correct it.
  • 'Volta 1,2' must have 1,2 in the repeat list. 'Volta 1,2' must be played in the first and second loop. Select this volta and go to the properties.
  • Volta 3 must have the value 3 in the repeat list - this was the only correct value as it should be executed in the third loop.

EDIT: the Text field of the volta is only for the visibility on the sheet and has no effect on the playback.
