So as the title states, I can't play audio from other programs whilst simultaneously using Studio One. I'm aware this question has been brought up before, but it seems as if the answers given to these questions aren't the answers I'm looking for.

I've tried one option, which is checking the release audio box in Studio One (fixed my previous issue of hearing no sound at all, but still can't hear other audio whilst also using Studio One)

And I've also tried going to my playback devices, right-clicking my device (external speakers), going to properties, and then to the advanced tab to uncheck both the boxes under exclusive mode, making so applications can't take exclusive control over audio: 

Upon trying this, I receive this error message:


Anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

Would love an answer to this...although it seems presonus, themselves, don't have one...I created a ticket about this and they told me to uncheck release audio device. This will give you sound in Studio One, but nowhere else while using Studio one...if you figure it out please let me know so I can start using Splice sounds again...almost ready to say **** Studio One because of this ****
