Our cowbell part also shows the use of a one-bar repeat symbol. This and similar repeats and multimeasure rests are represented using the measure-style element. The music in the second bar should be specified just as in the first bar (four notes with display-step E, display-octave 4, and instrument P2-X1).
At the start of the bar, we indicate the beginning of the one-measure repeat style:
<measure number="2"> <attributes> <measure-style> <measure-repeat type="start">1</measure-repeat> </measure-style> </attributes>
Further details about the measure-style element can be found in the attributes.mod file.
