Audio output from multiple applications

Post by kingy75 » Wed Oct 07, 2020 5:32 am

I've been having problems with getting audio output from simultaneously running applications e.g. if I'm running Sibelius and Transcribe, I'll only get sound from one or the other - usually whichever I opened first.

I've followed the instructions here - ... bwJ4wr76Og - and now I can get ouput from both programs at the same time but when I switch windows to Transcribe, Sibelius stops audio output; so I can't play along with a recording or anything like that.

On my old system I used to be able to run anything I wanted to simultaneously with no issues. Any ideas?

I'm on Windows 10 and my audio interface is a Roland Rubix24. I'm running the latest version of Sibelius Ultimate.

If you are running applications that use ASIO drivers, you can, generally, only use one at a time. They are what is called "single client" apps. The only way around this is to set one or both of the applications to some other driver (MME/DS).

IMO, this has never been that satisfactory a solution as other issues start to be felt (latency/clipping/etc).
