I keep getting this error message "There is a problem running band in a box. Please restart the plugin and try again." on my Win 10 pro AMD quad core computer and my Studio One is fully updated. I have uninstalled BIAB & reinstalled with the newest updates. plus I can only add chords 1 measure at a time as I get to the end of a measure it wont go beyond without me clicking on the start of the next measure. This is only happening in the vst version. Thanks for any help.

Hello DouglasP,

Is this Studio One Artist or Studio One Pro?

Please do the following with all programs closed.

Step 1: Please re-install the latest Band-in-a-Box update for your version from here:
*The second half of the build update is the Band-in-a-Box DAW Plugin installer, so it's important to reinstall the build update while troubleshooting, even if you've just done so.

Step 2: Open Band-in-a-Box (full version), go into your Style Picker and click "rebuild - fast rebuild". Once completed, please close Band-in-a-Box.

Step 3: Open your DAW (Studio One), load the Band-in-a-Box VST DAW Plugin. Then go to File | Preferences and make sure your folders are all set correctly. The default folders are suggested there - but if you have Band-in-a-Box installed to a different location, you'll need to make adjustments.

Step 4: Click "Select" then "Select a Style" to launch your Style Picker Dialog. Select a style and press OK. Then press "Generate" to generate the tracks in that Style.

Keep an eye on the progress messages at the bottom left of the plugin Window. If you interrupt a process, you can crash the plugin.

If the issue persists, please restart your DAW and then open the stand alone version of the plugin. To do this, please go into bb\BBPlugin\Files and launch the Band-in-a-Box DAW Plugin Standalone. Or, if you have a 32 bit OS, it's in bb\BBPlugin\Files\32-bit.

Let us know how it goes!

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
