Is there any easier way to toggle it yet?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
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
