WASAPI has four different modes of operation. SONAR supports WASAPI Exclusive mode using event signaling, because this mode is best suited for audio programs.
In order to use WASAPI in SONAR, your audio device must have WDM drivers that Windows can successfully communicate with, and the audio device must be enabled to work in Exclusive mode.
Exclusive mode is the default in Windows 7 and can be configured from your audio device’s taskbar or Properties dialog box in Device Manager. Consult your audio device’s manual if you need further information.
Tip: If you select Share Drivers With Other Programs in Edit > Preferences > Audio - Playback and Recording, SONAR will relinquish control of the audio device when the program loses Windows focus.

Go to Edit > Preferences > Audio - Playback and Recording.

In the Driver Mode list, select WASAPI.
3.
Select the Audio - Devices page tab (Edit > Preferences > Audio - Devices).
