I'm having an issue and I can't pin point the problem. A couple of days ago I was able to open up different programs and hear audio in each one. For instance, I was able to have netflix open while Pro Tools was running. Yesterday, I updated my audio driver to the next version for my Studio 192 Mobile. After doing so, I noticed that when I open Pro Tools...either Pro Tools would freeze or anything else using the 192 audio would stop working. For example, If netflix was playing the audio would stop and the video would freeze. ..if my soundly application was running it would either freeze or the audio would just stop. This was all working before. I was even able to have 2 DAWs running at the same time and not have issues.
I checked the advanced properties to on all of the playback and recording settings in the windows audio control panel. I noticed they were set back to exclusive mode. So, I disabled the 2 boxes for exclusive mode on every device and restarted my PC. Unfortunately, the problem is still there. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. I've also tried going back to the driver version I had before. None of these fixes the issue.
I am curious if you happen to know something I may have missed. I have not been able to come up with a solution from my research yet. I thought I would ask before doing a complete reinstall of my PC....rather not have to do that.
