I just got Cubase Elements 6 and I am trying to watch video tutorials to learn the basics. I have zero experience with DAWs.
The first problem I have run into is that Cubase silences all other programs while open. Thus if I am following a tutorial, I have to reload the tutorial each time I maximize the Cubase window.
I have searched around for a solution, but could not find one.
I have tried going to Devices --> Device Setup --> VST audio system, and checked “release driver when application is in background” but this has no effect.
(my soundcard is realtek HD audio–onboard sound card, my AISO driver is "generic low latency ASIO driver.)
Is this “muting other programs” an option I can turn off?
