Viola, cello, bass
The previous bar tied notes aren’t repeating (the strings drop off on the repeat), but I also have a timpani part which is a series of quarter notes which does repeat. I think the logic is clear - as a tied note there’s no MIDI note to repeat, however musically this makes sense doesn’t it, e.g. just keep playing the note? Any reason why a bar repeat doesnt’ play if the previous bar is just a tied note?
Also why is it light blue?
