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)

#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.

Read even more great feedback here.
