When I open Renoise or Ableton live I can’t listen to any other audio (youtube, winamp).
If I have Renoise opened, my whole winamp actually crashes, it freezes and when I try to click it it just goes to inresponsive.
I’ve got an E-MU Tracker pre, sound interface wich is used for all my audio and stays on the whole time. (it doesnt switch back to my onboard soundcard)
Could this be something with the ASIO drivers? I don’t know much about is but I know I use ASIO with Reniose and Ableton live…
Any ideas? Its really anoying I cant do several audio things at once…
Thanks for the tip, I’ve been fiddling for hours but I cant get it to work propperly. So, does everybody has this same problem? I can’t listen to anything else than to what Im making in Renoise, so no tuts on youtube, or a relaxing song while taking a little break from music making?
Nope. I have an M-Audio Firewire Audiophile 4/6 (external). It’s no problem here to have Renoise using ASIO with other apps using Directsound. Winamp, Soundforge, etc., they all work pretty fine. I can even load one instance of Renoise using ASIO, and another using Directsound
That really depends on the driver and the generic design done by the soundcard manufacturer, this is really hard to get supported without changing another card, either try to find if your audiocard manufacturer has an ASIO driver that supports multi I/O mode or use the MIDI WDM drivers regarding DirectX (MME drivers indeed come with a lot higher latency rate than the WDM drivers)
