    Different devices for different sounds

    Is it possible, in W8, to assign different sounds to different sounds to different devices? I'd like to have music go through stereo speakers and system sounds go through the PC speakers.

    Windows only allows one default audio playback device.

    There may be some third party program that will get around that, but I'm not familiar with any.
