I have been using the VMS5 for the past couple of years without issue. Recently, I have reason to try to set up one of my channels to pull volume from my internal Windows sound card. I have successfully set up my "C" or channel 1 slider to play the Realtek High Definition Audio device and the remaining three channels are using the Asio driver for mixing music. So here is the issue:
Channel 1 will play audio from a browser or Windows sounds, but I am not able to play audio from a stand alone application (ie. Spotify, Amazon Music, Windows Media Player, or any of my projection mapping/VJ software). I can go into the software on several and choose the output. If I choose the internal sound card it plays on the laptop speakers. If I choose Asio card as the output, the software all immediately freezes.
I am absolutely stumped and have tried every combination of configurations I can think of to resolve the issue. Has anyone else using the VMS5 been able to set it up to utilize both sound cards at the same time? I appreciate any advice.
