most of us use RB with no problems (apart from user error which i freely admit to!)

is the program crashing? is that what you mean by 'breaks down'? do you get an error message? does the program freeze?

what build are you using? if you tell us a little more we might be able to help. what drivers are you using? MME is usually bulletproof and fine unless you are recording audio over an existing song. are you using an audio interface? if so are you using their drivers?

sorry to ask so many questions but RB is for the most part stable and works well for lots of us so if you tell us more i'm sure we can help.

acidbent - try running Realband by right clicking on the RealBand shortcut and choosing "Run As Administrator" - see if that helps.

Just because you are having so many issues, what are your computer specs?
Where do you run RB from? (which drive)

i think at this point it would help the rest of us help you if you went into your computer set up in detail as well as the audio interface your useing.
plus post pics of your sound device settings in windows
AND realband AND your audio interfaces control panel if it has one.
otherwise its just "a guessing game for the rest of us".
often it comes down to how a rig is set up and its settings assuming there isnt a software bug.
and solutions are often a process of elimination.
best

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
