Setting Windows applications to play sound on a different audio device

  1. One thing I have wanted to do since I have a couple separate sound devices plugged into my Custom Built PC, is set individual applications to play their audio on a different audio device (such as my 5.1 Analog output or the digital output). I know that Windows has an option to set a device for communication such as when a Skype call is started, and have the rest of the audio go out the default speakers, but that doesn't help me when I want my music playing through my Home Theater system and a YouTube video playing on my main speakers, or maybe someone watches Netflix through the TV while someone does something else on the main screens.

    Is there some software that lets the user do this? I'm having issues finding one on my own.
