Hello everyone, I honestly have a problem with my imaginations that it is very big and very disturbing, and it is as follows:
When running the "Studio One 5" program, if you run anything else besides the application, such as a video on YouTube, songs, a screen recording program, or even a video on the device (short for any other program that outputs sound or picks up sound ), it does not work Provided that the program is "Studio One 5", and as soon as I close the program, everything returns to normal. The sound comes out without any problems. Only this is my problem and I want a solution that makes all programs work at the same time. I do not need to close the "Studio One 5" program in order to hear the sound from Another application, I want to note that the program "Studio One 5" internally works without any problems, and I also want to note that my device is running Windows 10.

What you are experiencing is expected behavior.  You need to go into Options then Audio Setup and check the box that says "Release audio device in background."

Release Audio Device in Background (Windows only) is disabled by default. When engaged, the current audio device is made available to other applications when Studio One is minimized.
