Hi folks, Happy new year (oh my, the 1st quarter is nearly gone)! Can you stop the RealBand global reset message from appearing when it's reopened after a crash? Be-CAUSE, RB crashes too often. And, if like me, you have Windows' cursor set to 'Snap To,' you're one errant click away from 'Yes, reset all RB settings to defaults.' You lose your driver settings, preferences, et. al.

So, rather than turn 'Snap To' off, and since RB seems to continue to be somewhat unstable as more and more tracks, plugins, etc. are added, I'd like to eliminate the risk of losing all my settings. RB's just trying to be cautious and helpful, but it's at fault, not the OS or the hardware. Peace all!

I know of no way to change this behavior. We as users have limited control over stuff like this.

I would point out though that RB is offering to reset the RB settings/preferences, not system settings, so the OS and hardware would remain unaffected to everything but RB.
This simply resets what devices RB is using (in case the issue is between RB and a given device).
Curious, what drivers are you using that would be changed if accepted (or causing the problem)?

FWIW I regularly go through 2-3 hour sessions recording 6-8 tracks at a time and do not see this issue, so I'm pretty sure it is system/device specific (meaning RB is not playing nice with something in your system). The question is what/why .. and I understand I may be more the exception than the rule.

You mention this happens as tracks/plugins are added. In my years using PT/RB I have found I suspect plugins first. That's why I have my go-to (reliable) plugins list in RB.


Just some ideas and suggestions on how I use RB.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!

"The king of backing track creation, in my opinion, is Band-in-a-Box (BIAB). It can do everything from country to jazz to metal, with a huge array of instruments and options. There is a great selection of songs and BIAB tracks available for free on the web, so you don’t even have to make your own."
