At this moment you can't do nothing, WL insist that you have something
bad configured and suggest you that disable play in background, even if you do
that nothing happens... my solution is to monitor WL thru my SBLive, is not the
best solution but it works, as you stated... why the heck WL dont use ASIO? :)
That would be great! Perhaps in version 3? :)

I dont know exactly the advantages other than ASIO is made by steinberg
and the VST uses the hardware in a more comprehensive way, lets put it this
way, if you have ASIO the card will work PERFECT with VST and in my case
it has 25ms latency, also you can make it shorter tweaking the registry but
you loose stability hence my 25ms instead of the 4Ms possible :)

BTW is there someone having a GINA and a SBLive linked together?
I'm having some 44<>48khz sync issues that I would like to resolve but I
guess that I can't since SBLive works at 48khz internally :(
