Hi, I am fairly new to all this. I decided to give RealBand a try however when I try to save I get a crash and an I/O error. However if I save as an SEQ file it is fine. It only fails if I try to save as a BIAB (SGU or MGU). Any clues would be welcome.

A little more information would be helpful. 1) What is your computer operating system? 2) What version of RealBand are you using? 3) What does the error message say?

For now the best I can suggest is to make sure you are using the most current version of RealBand available for that year.

The I/O error in BBW2.EXE (when saving to MGU/SGU) should not occur in RealBand 2018. (The error was in BBW2.EXE and not RealBand.exe) Also, RB 2018 will now default to saving as .SEQ unless the checkbox in the File Preferences is manually unchecked. Thanks.

As a matter of course, I always save to SEQ first to preserve the work I'm doing, because from there, you can save as other formats. But the master file should ALWAYS be a SEQ file.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
