Default Re: headphones and computer speakers

There’s a lot of poopooing going on in this thread in regards to ASIO4all. Oh come on! It’s perfectly adequate for on the road work with headphones and laptop speakers. It all comes down to what level of production one is attempting to accomplish.

The OP’s problem isn’t ASIO4all. It’s his expectation that it’ll switch from laptop speaker to headphone automatically because it worked that way in the past. The problem here is that he doesn’t understand how to use ASIO4all. I suggest he google up some videos on using ASIO4all so that he learns how to use it to switch outputs manually rather than expecting it to do it for him automatically.

Have you ever tried the AudioSwitch app? I am using now a prototype of an audio switch headphone stand, where there is an option to switch using hardware mode.
this helps me to keep my desk tidy and works during my gaming sessions too

Also, although you did post some of your system info in your other post, make sure you post it here - the more info you provide, the better help you should receive.

It might also help if you could post a video showing exactly what you're experiencing.
