Please make sure, you are using another driver type with the other application. Most of the ASIO drivers can work with 1 application only at the given time. So you can use the ASIO driver in Cubase and for example Generic driver in the other application.
@Voxango - So if I’m running Cubase and Dorico at the same time with VoiceMeeter Banana I can hear both programs at the same time - or at least jump back and forth between them? If so this would help me out a lot.
Per your question: I am using
= SOUNDCRAFT Notepad-8FX, as my Audio Device, via USB , Windows11.
= Mainboard has a REALTEC (ALC1220 Codec) Audio Chip
When I summarize all the comments and yours, do I get it right that the recommendation would be:
a) routing a cable from the 3,5mm connector outlet of the Mainbd to a Stereo input channel of my Soundcraft. Set Win11 Sound settings to use the REALTEC Chip as output.
b) set Cubase in Menu Studio Settings to use the SOUNDCRAFT Notepad8 driver
Would this be your recommendation?
Thank you and all for your time and input to my question. Appreciate it.
Per info on their internet side “vb-audioDOTcom” this should work for my problem to be able hear multi client audio sources in parallel including Cubase12.
And seems to be a powerfull tool w/Equalizer and sub busses etc → will test that.
But will test also what Johnny_Moneto proposed, the 3.5mm jack cable frm Mainbd to Soundcraft Audio device
This is a valid solution if you have an empty pair of inputs on your Soundcraft.
Did you encounter your described issue when using the Soundcraft ASIO driver in Cubase or did you use another driver/ASIO device?
per your question:
the issue “no multiple client audio usage possible” occurs when Cubase is set to Soundcraft and Standard ASIO driver. In other words: Youtube sound stopps when I start Cubase with either Cubase set w/Generic ASIO driver and also set w/Soundcraft driver.
So, you can go the hardware way by pluging a cable from Realtek output to Soundcraft input as you described it already
you can install Voicemeter Banana, which is basically a little software mixer in itself. You would then route (software based) Cubase and Windows to Voicemeter and its signal to Soundcraft (I think, I am not 100% sure of that)
there is another little helper called ASIO ProLink, which, according to others, lets you do the routing between Windows and Cubase software based as well but looks somewhat complicated to me on the outside (never used it).
