This is not a minor thing, it's a HUGE flaw.
Using the onboard Realtek audio I can run multiple applications at once all of them playing sound perfectly....but as soon as ASIO4All is invoked the audio system is locked. So, it's not that Windows audio is not multi-client, it's just that an ASIO device will no longer share the audio system.
This also happens using my RME sound card, if Cubase is using the RME ASIO driver
, Soundforge can no longer us the RME windows drivers
