Hi everybody,

I have lived with this message for a long time now in windows 7 32 bit "band in a box application has stopped working" after I close the program.

I have posted before about it and people say its just a harmless message which I agree, but as its gone on for a long time and doesn't seem to be related to any synth such as the vsti that I am using I'm very curious as to what is causing it both in biab and realband.
Is everyone else with windows 7 living with the same message?

Surely by now PG have some idea of what is causing it and taking steps to remedy?

Certainly not something I have routinely seen (if ever seen) on my Win7 machine.

I had it happen the other night on Vista. In my case, it is related to using my M-Audio Midi interface or USB to connect to my synth. When using Coyote Forte, I can't remember ever getting the error.

If you installed the VSC-DXi synth, whether you are using it or not, you will get this error in both Vista 32-bit and Windows 7 32-bit. The VSC-DXi synth is dated and won't going to be upgraded to support the later operating systems (according to PGMusic). Assuming this is your problem, try removing the VSC-DXi from your computer, reboot, and see if the problem goes away. I know that's what worked on my computer. Of course, it could be something else, but I would start there as it is a known problem.

hey, thanks, John! I've seen this problem talked about many times, but never noticed a solution until now. It worked! (I didn't even have to reboot)

Joe,

I get that message when I load Biab and my USB Midi cable is NOT plugged in. Biab is looking for the driver and it is obviously not there when it is unplugged. I am on Vista here.

Thanks a lot for replies. I like the sound of the vsc-dxi so I need to keep that installed.

Just have to live with this little niggle I guess.

Hello Joe,

Check in Device Manager under Display Adaptors to see if you have an NVIDIA graphics device. If so, installing the most recent drivers for that should fix the problem (www.nvidia.com)

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.
