Can’t use same audio device to listen to Gig Performer and external music player at the same time

Apr 23, 2018 | Knowledge Base Articles, MS Windows, Troubleshooting

A Windows customer recently reported a problem where they found that they could not listen to their music with apps like Spotify or Pandora while using Gig Performer even though this seemed to work when using other audio plugin hosts or DAWs.

Spotify and Gig Performer, usage at the same time

If you encounter this situation, make sure that your Windows drivers and Gig Performer are set to the same sample rate. If the sample rates are different, this is most likely the cause of the problem.
