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.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
