This example:

\score {
  \drums {
    \repeat volta 2 { bd sn bd sn }
  \layout { }
  \midi { }

in Cygwin Lilypond \version "2.12.4"
produce correct .pdf but midi file don't
contain repeat of rhythm pattern second time.

I temporary use '\repeat unfold' which work fine.


Normal, you have to use \unfoldRepeats .
See NR 3.5.4 Repeats in MIDI

Thanks for answer!

Unfortunately \unfoldRepeats expand all repeat pattern in .pdf!
So I get correct .midi output but my .pdf
become unreadable because of big repeated patterns.
At the end of the link above you can find the solution: you have to write two \score

The first one is the one for the pdf:

\score {
 ..your music goes here..
 \layout { .. }

while the second does *NOT* contain a \layout-block but only a \midi-block and 
is only responsible for the midi output:

\score {
 \unfoldRepeats ../your music goes here/..
 \midi {}

Then one lilypond run should do the job.

Note thet \unfoldRepeats must not be coded within your music variables, but 
only in the \score-block.
