1920x1080 is my screen resolution I need to use in order to have text and items big enough for me to see clearly on my big 47 inches Flat screen TV. In this resolution I have been use to that I can't minimize the VST window in BiaB, because it just disappear out of sight. But today I worked in RB and would generate a RT there. A yellow window came up telling me it was initializing something. Then nothing more happens, and wherever I click, I get that sound that I know there is a window open some place that I need to click ok or something, but I cant see it, so I have to force lock down RB... If there is no fix for this, then RB is useless for me...

Perhaps don't be too quick to name the blame Leo, because it may be something else.

Try this:
Right-click on the task-bar and select one of the below. Then click on the RealBand item that you believe is giving you issues, or <Alt><Tab> through the items, reviewing any screens that me be expecting some user input. Maybe you can coax the problem window looking for some input from you to the front.

It's possible that it was expecting a response from you when you then clicked on something else, leaving it in some sore of limbo.

And remember, we're just users, like you.

Yes, it does happen with my setup. What I noticed is that if I move the track up some, then the vst window will open. It has actually happened to me twice, where I couldn't click on anything until I hit the escape key because I couldn't find the window.

I have a dual monitor setup.

I did not ment to name any blame, just want to solve this problem...;)

I tried all the tips u describe, but there just is no other windows to be seen, that is related to RB in any way...

The Yellow window you mention most likely says it is initializing the accompaniment function (normal).

It sounds to me that you are correct assuming RB has a window open somewhere expecting you to click something.
I'd first make sure my Styles and RealTracks were pointed at the correct directory (that may hang the above mentioned Yellow message process). My gut says that is not the issue, though.

Here, if I hold the Windows Logo key and then tap the Tab key, I get a graphical display of open windows.
Not sure if this will help, but if you tinker a bit you can rotate through the windows and bring the desired one forward (at least here) by tapping the Tab key while still holding the Windows key.

Thank's for trying to helping me out rharv... The windows key does nothing here.. But the alt does, and as I mention, there is no windows related to RB.. I also made sure RB is pointed to the right directory, to no avail.... Must be something else..

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

Thanks for sharing!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
