Usage of Dorico 4 and Cubase 12 at the same time

Hello everyone!

Is it possible to run Dorico 4 and Cubase 12 at the same time to switch between the 2 programs without having to re-enable/switch the audio driver each time? When I’m working with one program and want to switch quickly, the audio output (Steinberg UR44) doesn’t work with the other program because the audio driver is already in use…

Do you understand my problem…?

Thank you for any feedback/ hints & best wishes!

Yes, that is a known issue. The workaround is to use in one of the programs the Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver (or ASIO4ALL or FlexASIO), probably better on Dorico side because latency is less of a problem on that end.
To set this up in Dorico, go to Edit > Device Setup, choose the Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver and then click on the Control Panel button, a new little window opens. In there have a look at the output port list. If your UR44 is not listed there, untick the option at the top of that window saying something about exclusive access. When the UR44 turns up, simply click the checkmark in front and close the dialogs.
