Default Re: Using Digi 003R as an Output Device for other programs...broken?

Since the driver that allows for this has been hit or miss over the years, I side-step the entire issue by letting the computer's own sound card handle all non-Pro Tools audio. I just ran a cable with mini TRS at one end, that splits to two TS plugs and feed the computer audio to the AUX inputs of the 003. Hit the AUX to Mon button to switch back and forth(and never a worry about "device in use by another application" type messages. Going further, since many modern computers have an optical SPDIF output, I now route that(along with analog and RCA SPDIF on the 003) to a Presonus Central Station. Using the digital out of the computer improves the sound quality by a huge amount over the mini plug output
