Roon adjusting mute

Hi,

I’m using Roon on an RME ADI-2 DAC. It’s a superb combo. I use the RME ASIO driver, which works perfectly. However, there’s one annoying issue - when Roon moves from one sample rate to another, or one format to another, there is a pause and the software unmutes my laptop’s internal audio driver. It’s especially annoying, not only because it stops Crossfade in its tracks, but also because it brings the little speaker/volume sign on the screen each time it does this. From what I understand, ASIO should be exclusive. I’m sure there’s a way around this - any ideas?

Cheers.
