Does it not just default to

Does it not just default to current output device in use in the OS? So; just toggle the device in use from the Sounds section of Windows Control Panel, and Caustic should follow...

Ah I see... ASIO4ALL isn't an

Ah I see... ASIO4ALL isn't an "output device" per se, it is a driver that is commonly used as an alternative to proprietory/OEM drivers to stream audio through interfaces, when those original drivers have caused a troublesome latency during recording/monitoring instruments. Since Caustic isn't a DAW with any emphasis on tracking audio streams, it's not something you'd normally need to worry about anyway, frankly - I woudn't have thought Caustic uses ASIO protocol/drivers at all.

What is the issue that makes you need to use the ASIO4ALL driver, rather than whatever driver the output device uses normally? I'd understand if you were looking for a workaround with e.g.latency from a MIDI keyboard or something, but it's not like being unable to use ASIO would ever render a soundcard or interface unusable for outputting audio, nor is it like using the ASIO driver would have any perceptable bearing on sound quality.

Hope that makes sense, these are quite broad strokes...

The ASIO4ALL driver can be

The ASIO4ALL driver can be activated in the "config" file of Caustic. Then Caustic switches to this driver, when the app is opened.

ASIO4ALL can offer low latency for recording (e.g. by MIDI keyboard), but the playback performance is worse.

The "config" file is in the Caustic home directory (where subfolders "songs", "presets", etc. have been created). The line should read:
