DirectX full duplex driver missing

Postby Soul-Burn » Sun Jul 27, 2014 8:28 pm

I've just bought and installed Cubase 7.5 on a new Windows 8.1 system, and the "DirectX full duplex driver" is missing from the VST Audio System menu. This did not happen on my previous installation of Cubase 7 on Windows 7.

I have an external sound card, for which I used the specific driver. However, I sometimes want to work while allowing sounds from other applications to work, for which I required the DirectX full duplex driver.

"Release driver when application is in background" is not a suitable option, since it doesn't allow both applications to work in the same time.

Anyone knows?

The previously installed Cubase 7 on the same Windows 8.1 system also fails to find the DirectX full duplex driver.

For some reason there's no asiodxfd.dll in C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Asio, where the ASIO drivers sit.
In the old installation, it was there, aside with asioglld.dll.

Why is this happening?

You do not need dx driver for this, go to windows sound/your soundcard/properties/advanced tab and switch off "allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"

You should be able to use your interface ASIO driver in Cubase and still play audio from other applications.
