Dorico & Cubase concurrent usage

Guys, I need to work in cubase and dorico at the same time (meaning that I need to go back and forth to each one!). I open Cubase works perfectly on 48.000 kHz. I choose the option to release the driver when on background… I move then to Dorico, also working on 48.000 kHz and everything is fine… But when I’m going back to Cubase the project all of a sudden is changing to 44.000 kHz and I can’t hear a thing… Why is this happening and what should I do to work on both apps…? Thank you in advance!

Welcome to the forum, Michael. Are you on Windows or Mac? If you’re on Mac, it should be sufficient to make sure that the sample rate in Edit > Device Setup in Dorico and the corresponding dialog in Cubase are set the same.

On Windows, things are a bit trickier, unless you have a dedicated ASIO device, such as an external audio interface, with specific multi-client support. If you don’t have such a device, you need to make sure that Cubase and Dorico are set to different audio devices if you want to run them at the same time.
