Hi,

I'm using a simple tascam US 2x2 audio interface in Windows 10... it works fine, but while I'm using Reason I can't play any audio in other application (media player, browser, audacity, etc)... I already tried many settings in the sound panel, give specific drivers for apps and leave one exclusiveley for Reason... but no luck, no matter I choose Reason wins and it blocks any audio outside of it.

I have disabled any other onboard soundcard, so my only source for audio is the Tascam.

I have read that other DAW like Cubase, Studio One, etc have explicit settings to release the audio driver in the background, but Reason doesn't...

Any ideas?
Thanks

Don't know man, works for me. I have the same audio interface selected for both Reason and Windows. Don't know if that's also relevant, but I have the "play in background" box checked.
