I have tunes in RB for several years, playing them with no problem until yesterday. They are all still separate tracks, usually 4 or 5 Real tracks & Real Drums with possibly a vocal track added. I am using 2o17. ( My wife won't let me have 2018 until Christmas Day. )
Now, at some random part of the tune it starts to stumble. It's as though each bar can't load fast enough. I hope this makes sense as it's difficult to explain. I am using Windows 7. Loads of hard drive space. All help appreciated.....Hank

Consolidate Tracks may help.

Select all the tracks, from beginning to end, then consolidate.

This helps with both hard drive thrashing and some plugins (which may be the issue). Have you added any new plugins to the project?

Thanks Harv
No plugins being used. I will try consolidating. I just tried one of the tunes while I was typing this & it played ok. Hopefully it's fixed itself. Thanks for help.....Hank

HI HANK

If it does cure its self then I guess the day it was not working the computer was busy doing something in the background like update some program or other maybe over wi fi if you keep it on the internet when using RB.
Or some other scheduled task in the background.

I'm playing 4 gigs a week. Have been for a long time. In the audio prefs set buffer to the max. 4000. No glitches ever except an update that set default at 400.

Feedback - The Way I Use Band-in-a-Box and How It Changed My Music Career

Thank you to forum user Torrey Bliss for their amazing feedback, The way I use Band In A Box and how it changed my music career!

"I wanted to put up a post about how I got started using Band In A Box in order to help someone who is just getting started using the program to be be able to see the potential uses of BIAB for a musician and explain my procedure when composing a song.

I began using BIAB about 10 years ago after seeing some things online about the program and thought it might work for me. I had just accepted a staff position as a worship leader at a medium size church (250-300 people) and had been put in charge of all music. The problem I immediately encountered was that there were no available musicians to help me. This is where BIAB saved the day. I was able to quickly construct many professional sounding songs that I would be able to use in the services and play my guitar or keyboards along with and provide an excellent set of music for our church to sing along with..."
