I am writing a score for 3 horns and rhythm section. There is a 16 bar sections where one of the horns is playing a repeated set of quavers. I don't want to print out 16 bars of the same thing, I certainly wouldn't do that if I were scoring by hand. I'd probably write the first bar of quavers out in full, then one more bar with a multi-repeat sign with the number 15 over the top - thus taking 2 bars to tell the whole story. How would the panel do this? I have tried leaving the 15 following bars empty and inserting an automatic rest - which gives me a lovely '15' over the top, but I don't want a rest symbol in there - I want some sort of repeat symbol. And I don't want to kill rests, else that will affect the entire part. OK. I could kill rests, and enter all necessary rests by hand - yes, I've done that before - what a pain! But even then, how would I put a repeat symbol in?
