First of all, I know there's related posts: How to make ASIO work with multiple programs simultaneously : how can I listen to Guitar Rig plus something else through the same interface? But they don't answer my question that is:
Is there any way to use ASIO with some VST Host and Windows Applications (Web Browser, Media player, etc.) at the same time with just one real sound card?
- I know it is possible via software using O Deus ASIO Link. Unfortunately, their free version mutes all sounds for 5 seconds each 1 minute. They work emulating a Sound Card Driver and routing it to VST Application and Windows use that Sound Card Driver as Default.
- I also know that it is posssible via JACK, but after trying a lot to get it working on Windows, I could not hear it clear (sounds was cracking). I could not find a 100% working tutorial for Windows 8. :(
I installed Cubase, it comes with "ASIO DirectX Full Duplex Driver".
I think the trick is this driver that is installed. But if I change the Cubase' driver to ASIO4ALL (which has lower latency for live playing) I have that same problem.
