This is something I’ve not been bothered about up to now because I’ve been too busy getting the Cubase basics under my belt, but now I’m progressing a bit I thought I’d pop the question here sure in the knowledge that someone’s got the answer.
I’m using my Lexicon interface as my main sound device with LE1 and I thought that if I went to Devices/Devices setup/VST Multitrack and ticked the ‘Release ASIO Driver In Background’ box then other applications could access my interface even when LE was still running, with the ‘top’ window, whatever it is, taking priority on the ASIO driver.
Well this isn’t happening. With that box ticked my other applications like iTunes, Real Player, Windows Media Player etcettera report “a problem with your sound device” if LE is still running.
Like I say, I’ve not bothered about this up to now, I’ve just closed LE to use the other audio apps, but it would be nice to be able to leave LE running.
Any thoughts would be welcome.
