Pro Tools, Core Audio and VoiceOver

2010-11-19 Thread Slau Halatyn
I guess I've come to realize that there's an inherent conflict between Pro Tools and voiceOver as it relates to Core Audio. VoiceOver uses Core Audio (built-in system audio) for its output. Pro Tools will not playback through Core Audio if anything else is sharing it. In other words, the two
