Switching between Studio one and other apps in windows has to be made more smoother

asked Jun 29, 2021 in Studio One 5 by adarshchandran (5,420 points)
I often have to shift across Studio one and Youtube with Google chrome browser. However the simple process of clicking outside of studio one onto other applications is so clumsy and ends up hanging the audio drivers of both the external applications and Studio one as well. Please provide a seamless shift of Audio drivers shifts when clicking out of Studio one as this is an inconvenience as I can't seem to keep Studio one at a "Standby mode" whenever I have to do other work on the system keeping S1 minimized. Also I can't perform comparisons using other apps in the computer.

And also, changing the Audio driver to "No audio device" every time when I'm putting S1 in standby mode partially works, but such shifts are manual and can definitely be made automatic and faster. If in case one forgets to switch that, S1 hogs the ASIO driver for itself and prevents other applications from using their default windows audio drivers and hangs up the audio drivers.

Yes! This please! I want to be able to write notes in other apps while listening to pieces that I'm working on. 

The way the audio hangs up between apps totally kills my songwriting workflow. If you can solve this, it would be really helpful for songwriters (even really bad ones like me :))

Great suggestion @adarshchandran
