Is it just me or is Realband 2017 extremely slow when generating audio harmonies? And also, instead of showing a normal busy cursor it takes over my cursor and moves it around the screen (or maybe I moved it and it is just taking soooooo long to respond that when it does it is moving my cursor from a buffer!.

This is pretty much unusable in this state!

See if you can open Task Manager and observe CPUs, memory, etc. when you try this again. May be beneficial in investigation.

John,

I use RB to generate harmonies and it's ok for me. I only generate 1 up and 1 down, though. I also don't generate small, medium, large choirs.

If generating many parts and multiple voices, such as the choral sounds, it can be slow.

Regards,
Noel

Thanks Noel. It is not just the slowness that makes me crazy although that is pretty bad. It is the fact that it performs like code that has locked up. No normal "working" icon is displayed and instead the whole program slows down to a crawl with even the cursor being unresponsive. Unless there is something specifically wrong with my installation I'd call this feature broken and unusable.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
