modified "2nd endings"

Post by bj nick » Wed Dec 01, 2021 8:42 pm

I'm rusty with the jazz/commercial stuff....I need a section with several x's repeated, then I want to use "Last x on cue" for the last one. In other words, band repeats the section 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. x's, then the "last x on cue"....I forget how to do the brackets properly.....thanks.

Repeat tool.
1) create a simple repeat (menu)
2) select the measures that will be included in the first ending, and create a first and second ending (menu)
3) double click on the 1, and in the Alternate Text in Ending, enter 1,2, 3...
4) double click on the 2, and in the Alternate Text in Ending, enter Last x on cue
