Windows 7: Sound Priority Issues (Steam-iTunes)

10 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Sound Priority Issues (Steam-iTunes)


I have an issue that whenever I have music playing either over YouTube or iTunes the sound always becomes quiet whenever I either receive a message from Steam and the notification noise goes off.

It also happens in-game, say I'm playing Team Fortress 2 and have iTunes playing in the background, if I were to use the voice feature the iTunes becomes quieter, almost to the point I can't hear it.

Anyone know a way I can fix this?

Is there some sort of sound priority feature I don't know about?
