It's really annoying that S1 takes exclusive control over audio devices. Even enabling "Release audio device in background" option doesn't help, because, for example, switching to YouTube video and back crashes the playback and I have to reload the YouTube page to get my video back.

I do understand the logic behind this default behavior - it's done this way to help artists not to get distracted when they work on their masterpieces, but it would be nice if I could decide what's better for me and could change it.

Thank you.
