Has anyone come across this problem with the 2018 update?

When I tried to open MGU or SGU files in RB2018 the following warning message came up;
bbw2.exe – System Error
The code execution cannot proceed because libsndfile-1.DLL was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

RB was frozen and had to be shut down using Task Manager.
This happened if I tried to open MGUs or SGUs from within RB or By Right Click and Open With.

I reinstalled RB2018 as suggested but the problem persists this time ,without the warning message. I then did a full reinstall, including new patches,the problem persists but the warning message has returned.

Needless to say, I did not have this problem before the update to 2018, and I find this annual dance around bugs and glitches following an update is becoming very tiresome, especially this year with the update having more cosmetic than useful content.

I will forward this to PGM but I was hoping someone here can help as I don't expect a response before Monday.

Thanks in advance

Make sure libsndfile-1.dll is present in your RealBand\data folder. If not then copy it from the RealBand folder to the data folder.

The RealBand update patch will now fix the misplaced dll issue.

(The program is still build 2, but just install the patch again and it should fix the problem).

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.
