Windows 7: USE MULTIPLE DEVICES 7 x64

USE MULTIPLE DEVICES 7 x64

I want to use the audio simultaneously from my ati 4550 HDMI, Sony blue-tooth speaker via usb BT dongle, 3.5mm jacks on my mobo, and also from a spdif and digital coax linked to the mobo via on board header to expansion bracket with ports.

I know this all may sound like overkill, however I don't have the funds for high end switches / replicators, etc. So manually changing them has been a hassle.

I have done some reading and I know Windows 7 doesn't let you. I did this with xp x64.

Anyone know of a "work-around" or hack to enable all devices at once?

From what I see, you can only have one "Default" Playback device so I doubt that what you want to do can be accomplished.

Do your individual softwares have settings that allow you to select your output devices (I know MPClassic and several other media players do). In that case you can set it inside the program and not worry about it.

If you want all outputs playing the same sounds at the same time... You're probably talking about custom software of some kind.
