Hi I am a newbie to BIAB and I am having problems with a DS al Fine situation. After printing the music, the repeats, DS, and endings look fine and can be read without problems. However, if you play it back on the computer it discards the DS al fine and it goes to the end of the song and ends with its own tag.

The arrangement is a normal 32 bar Chorus(Perdido by Ellington). Here is the map: 4 bars of intro, 8 bars of A form which is repeated(first and second ending), 8 bars of B form(bridge), then back to A form.

I placed a DS al fine after the bridge which goes back to measure 5 and the Fine occurs at the second ending(measure 16). Like I stated it looks fine on paper, but when the computer plays it, it disregards the fine and quits at the end of the bridge. Any help would be appreciated.

Steve

Have you seen THIS tutorial. If still no joy, a screenshot of your song would be helpful.

In the future, questions like this will get answered quicker in the BIAB forum, not Tips and Tricks.
