For a program that is years and years old and costs hundreds of dollars, BiaB sure crashes a lot!

Last night it gave me an error in the middle of work warning me to save before the app crashed (which I was able to).

Today, I've been trying to import a finished song into Reaper using the BiaB VST. The song generates completely (I get the green popup box) and then the BiaB VST crashes, taking Reaper with it. This has happened at least a half dozen times. I've restarted everything including PC, renamed files, tried opening new Reaper project, etc.

Pretty frustrating. These are just the two most recent examples.
I don't run both apps at the same time.
Windows 10
Reaper 2021

Kinda disappointed. Rant over.

Which specific build of the DAW plugin do you have there, and are you using the VST3 plugin?

Hi Andrew,

In Reaper it shows as:

VST3i: Band-in-a-Box DAW VST3 Plugin (PG Music Inc) (16 out)

It's the latest version that I got from the website.

Thx

OH.
just in case its not a biab problem, there can be all sorts of reasons for problems.
please give details about your pc. as much as you can. otherwise its difficult to advise.
what is your sound device also ?

if your pc has never been optimised for recording studio work there are all sorts of guides on the net...eg from focusrite and audient web sites.
just one of many common problems is people running
a pc not properly configged for daw work. and/or trying to run oodles of plug ins on a pc with not enough resource "oomph".

please also under the top right hand side X in reaps...there is a detail line ; what does it say ?
it will indicate latency also.

finally reaps gives various stats on pc resource useage. by any chance are you useing any plug ins other than biab that use lots of pc resources ?
in addition when you clik on the reaps icon to load a new or old project , how long does it normally take ?
are you a new or seasoned reaps user ?
if a new user , note there are a huge number of superb
help videos at reaper.fm as well as on you tube.
about 80 in all i counted.

otoh maybe it IS a biab prob.

best
