Foobar2000 Talk:Components/WASAPI output support (foo out wasapi)
"Guarantees muting of any other sounds played through the soundcard - with ASIO and KS, muting occurred with some soundcards but not with all of them; it was a side effect rather than a feature."
This is not a "feature" of WASPI's exclusive mode...it's a side-effect since the application is taking control of the hardware and system sounds and other shared mode applications are unable to access it at that time. While this may be more guaranteed than KS...it's still *not* a feature and a side effect. I've never seen Windows use ASIO output for anything...ever...so I have no idea why that's even brought up. 18.104.22.168 20:21, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
