    Hi all!

    I'm starting to run a D&D campaign and I'm trying to make a simple soundboard to use during the sessions for background music, ambience, sound effects, etc. The issue is that I also use my laptop for notes and information, so I can't keep the soundboard as the active window at all times, and whenever I tab away from either the Unity editor or a built application, the audio pauses until the window becomes the active one again.

    Is there a way to make it so the audio keeps playing, even when the window is not the active window?
