I’ve built a new PC that uses the on-board sound chip (Realtek HD Audio), just like my old PC. However, when I try to allow the Generic Low Latency driver to share the sound chip so other apps can play sound while Dorico is running, the following happens:
Most of the time, other apps will stop playing sound when Dorico is open, strangely not all the time, though, and I haven’t figured out yet what triggers the change in behaviour… I’ve also set the option for Dorico to release the audio interface when in the background, but that doesn’t seem to do much.
What could be happening here? Should I buy a dedicated sound card? If so, would a ~€100 stereo card be enough, or do I need something more expensive? My old PC also had a Realtek Audio device, and I didn’t have these problems…
