I'm using Bitwig on Win10 and i've chosen ASIO as the Bitwig audio engine instead of the default WASAPI (for numerous reasons) and for some reason there's no audio playing in other applications (like Youtube, Music Players and so on). I'm also using a M-Audio 2x2m Audio Interface and if i plug it in again, the audio works again. I'm thinking it has to do with the ASIO engine, but i couldn't find any fix online and it's getting a little annoying.

Having the same problem here. Except when I attempt to play audio outside of Bitwig makes my driver start crackling and ends up preventing me from playing anything on Youtube, Spotify, etc..

Interface is Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 on Windows 10

I can confirm that if I use ASIO on Win10 I cannot use even a secondary audio output device for Windows and one for Bitwig through ASIO4ALL.

Is Bitwig reserving all of the ASIO/ASIO4ALL devices for it self?
