The reason for this is that Cubase or any other DAW claims the audio driver exclusively, to prevent problems.

There is a way however to make it work.

In Cubase on the menubar you go to ->devices -> device setup

There you find a checkbox that says: "release driver when app is in the background".

Check that checkbox and click ok.

Keep in mind that for Cubase to make sound in this case, it needs to be in the foreground.

Good luck

Which ASIO driver are you using? The Windows version, or the one that came with your soundcard?

And what soundcard are you using?

Another thing.

If you are using "direct monitoring" your wave stream is routed through the DAW, in which case it's unavailable to WMP.

If you are using your internal audio and using ASIO4All, it's not going to work.

If the audio device you're using is under Windows 7 control, the driver does not seem to be multi-client at least when using ASIO4All.

Two of my audio cards that do work are RME and M-Audio Audiophile as they do not install as exclusive Windows devices.

You can try this:

Right click on the Microsoft speaker icon
Select Playback Devices
Select your Default Output (speakers)
Select the properties button then go to the Advanced Tab.
Uncheck both of the selections, then reboot.

Worth a try.

I tried the ASIO4ALL when I had a HT Omega Striker 7.1 sound card, which doesn't come with an ASIO driver, so I could get it to work with Sonar but it messed up the drivers for my regular Recording device (a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 firewire connected unit) and I had to remove it, and not use the Striker 7.1 with Sonar (which really didn't matter as I was only interested in seeing if it worked). With Sonar, I've found keeping my recording device as the sound I/O in Sonar keeps it happy and separate from my PC's sound card and non Recording (Sonar) sound.
