Some of us have a lot of problems with RB and, unfortunately, I am one of those people.

Members of the forum told me to turn off my wifi and see if that helped. It didn't.

Then I saw a post that said to turn off my antivirus. I turned off my wifi and the antivirus. I also set Windows Update to overnight. I haven't had an exception error since.

There are still a lot of other problems, but at least this one is solved.

Thanks to all of you who replied. I hope this helps someone else.

I have used RB for a few years. It has its glitches for sure but for me usually it works great. I have had some issues with but mostly pops and crackles on playback for backing tracks. Also a couple file corrupted. But for tracking and creation it has been pretty stable.

I haven't turned off my anti-virus; however, I have excluded both the RealBand and BIAB folders from the anti-virus software (but if that scares you, don't do it); however, in using PGMusic products for about 20 years now, I have yet to see an infected file. Not saying it couldn't happen, but I also take other precautions (frequent backups and system drive imaging to allow for rapid restore in the event of some catastrophe, whether virus related or hardware failure).

In the song creation side of things is where I find most of the issues. I, like Rob, have used RB since inception. I know my way around the bugs so well I don't remember them and this has become my normal workflow.LOL
As far as playback the only issue is the JUKEBOX. It's real bad.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
