I recently assembled my first recording system; Amp head -> Palmer cab sim -> Alesis iO2 Express (interface)-> Reaper. Everything works fine and I can get the guitar recorded no problem, but I found out that once I plugged them all in, the audio from Winamp or Youtube or Guitar Pro are gone. I made sure to have the latest ASIO driver installed, followed the Alesis' instruction to go to Control Panel -> Sounds -> Recording -> tick off "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device(iO2)" which is supposed to solve the problem, but it didn't! AFAIK this happens because Reaper took control of ASIO which is the sole audio driver running, and other programs can't run audio on it.. probably. It's not a life threatening issue but it's quite inconvenient! I just want to watch YouTube tutorials or play along to songs outside my DAW once in a while. Some people said that this is ASIO4ALL's limitation, but some seem to be able to fix this I mean, otherwise the entire world would be using Mac for recording right? All the while my Mac friend have been giving me that "Why don't you just use Mac and enjoy life?" look. Can someone help me before I have to punch him?
