As the subjext line indicates, whenever I try to record any audio either vocal or audio, (through my Focusrite Pro 40 Interface) into BinAB and when i finish, an error msg comes up in the yellow pop up screen Error Mesage -50. Obviously there is nothing on the playback.

The notes in he mixer window indicates "Stereo 32 bit" in orange print.

I've been online to try and find out more info but not so successful.

Hoping you can help

That is a generic MacOS error that normally appears when you can’t write to your destination drive, usually a USB connected drive that is asleep.

Many of us never record audio to anything except our System drives to make sure this never happens.

I generally record direct int Logic, but I thouhgt that recording direct into Band in a Box I may be able to cut a few corners.

Thanks for responding

...never... except...
I'd suggest you continue your previous recording process and use the BIAB DAW plugin to deal with BIAB...a gentler learning gradient.

Is there more to the error message, other than just "error -50"?

Does this happen every time?

Since the track name on the mixer is orange, that means some audio exists. Can you go to the Audio Edit window and see if it looks like there is some kind of audio actually recorded or is it just digital silence?

What build of Band-in-a-Box do you have? You can find by going to Help > About Band-in-a-Box.
