So whenever i have guitar rig 6 running, all other audio sources just get blocked. Can't use spotify, can't open up a youtube video. I've tried to disable exclusive mode on windows audio settings but that didn't work. Can anyone please help me fix this?

    Go into Guitar Rig's Preferences. Under Audio, make sure that you've set the Driver to "WASAPI (Shared Mode)".

    What's your setup? Do you use e.g. Komplete Audio (or any other audio interface) or none at all?

    The thing is: Other than choosing WASAPI or disabling Exclusive Mode, there aren't other options left really. Exclusive Mode, like the name implies, means that only the specific application (Guitar Rig) is allowed to play sounds.

    (Also, check that the sampling frequency chosen for your Windows system matches the one in your audio applications.)

    @Kbecinha Checking on rather late. Have you been able to fix the issue? If not, questions from @Monochrome are still valid.
