Windows 7: Playing sound through spdif and speakout out @ the same time

Playing sound through spdif and speakout out @ the same time

Is this possible? I'm thinking of adding a soundbar to my 4.0 system and it would use the spdif on the mobo but is it possible to have two default devices running at the same time?

It is possible to have two outputs live at the same time, but only if the software supports it, for example most (all?), DJ software packages will allow you to send the output to one device and the monitor (headphone) output to another.
