If I run cubase, I can't run spotify or any other sound program at the same time. does this have to do with my soundcard and is my soundcard substandard for this?
If I exit cubase then I can use spotify and other soundprograms normally.

There is also another option (I am using Cubase LE AI 10).
Go to Studio -> Studio Setup. Then in the devices list choose the driver you are using (On my computer it is Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver) (1). Next click in the right panel on Control Panel button (2).
In the new window UNCHECK option "Allow ASIO host application to take exclusive control of selected port configuration".
This should do the work - now Cubase will allow to share audio port with e.g. music from web browser.
