I always loved ASIO, it always sounds much better especially with digital audio devices.
The only thing I never like about ASIO is the exclusivity is non toggle-able [I always have to close Music bee or, go to the settings page and manually apply direct sound again] .
Is there any easier way to toggle it yet? Can the god who's Steven implement the stop button as a toggle? Or something similar.

If you don't mind a bit of diy, and since what you want does not rely on MB's file/selection context, you could give this a spin:
https://autohotkey.com/
Might be an option to achieve what you are after.

If what you're asking for is a stop playback button, there are two ways to do this...
1- Mouse-hover on pause button > Shift key > click
2- Place a hotkey in the toolbar - Playback: Stop
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 beta patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

No, in order to turn off audio exclusivity you have to close music bee. Or If returning from asio to direct sound, you have to go to playback properties page, manually change it back, apply the settings and restart music bee.
However I feel exclusive mode should be toggled off when playback is stopped, rather than needing to exit  the software completely.
Or there should be a way to toggle between direct sound and asio without having to go through the menus and restarting the client...
This is but a very useful dream, I've had for years :P

when you stop playback (and i mean a full stop where MB sets the position to 0, not you clicking the pause button), MB will release the ASIO device

3.3.7310 P
Windows 10
ASIO

Not get back sound after pressing Stop Button.
One way to get sound back - change default audio format in windows sound card properties.
