#540487 - 06/11/19 11:59 AM [Band-in-a-Box VST and Pro Tools/AAX DAW Plugin (Windows)] DAW plugin won't load BB Songs with accented characters in filename or path

I've finally found why some of my SGU songs refuse to load in the DAW plugin, giving an error (and pointless) message:
"There was a problem running Band in a Box. Please restart the plugin and try again".

I've noticed that this problem occurs when my SGU songs contain french accents like 'é' or 'è' in their filename or in any portion of the path i.e. For example C:\Eléments\àlaclairefontaine.sgu won't load in DAW plugin because of the 'é' in the path or because of the 'à' in the filename.

I'm running BB (last version) on Windows 10 Home French version (1903, but same problem already occurred with previous Win10 versions).

Some localisation error there, I guess...

If I'm not mistaken, it's up to you, dear Bb developers smile

Best,
Bob

Bob,

That's impressive. Congratulations on figuring it out.

For the record, what version of the plugin are you using? You can check by selecting File > Preferences > About.

Thank you Jim for your nice comment.

I'm using Band-in-a-Box DAW VST3 Plugin v1.14.2

Same problem occurs with the VST(2) Plugin.

Best,
Bob

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.
