OK I engraved my manuscript out  in full (only words and melody), then I checked that the bars lined up with both the version of the manuscript with repeats and the drum machine. All good.
It was worth the effort to find out that it is not the most efficient method as the drum machine allows me to patch in sections.
That means is most logical using the manuscript with the repeats marked. Not the manuscript in full. Because it is easier to recognize the repeats and paste in the appropriate section of drums.
So back to having a collection of bar numbers at each repeat. Worth the exercise to find out.

Thanks for your help. Graham

Thanks I have not tried \unfoldRepeats. Let's see how it appears to be for midi output. But that may be ok as the drum machine does take many ways to do this. When you are used to reading the score it might just be better to print it out once in full for creating a drum part against. Regards Graham

I just read that you already mentioned that option.

Sorry for the noise.
