Note : In order to know which drivers package to use, match the audio specifications of your motherboard with the apps or ask me.




TIPS :

If you want to manage the drivers (remove old/unused drivers for example) that you have in your Windows DriverStore
Use Driver Store Explorer (https://github.com/lostindark/DriverStoreExplorer/releases/latest) (Right click on "Rapr.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you want better interrupts delivery latency
Enable MSI (Message Signaled-based Interrupts) mode on all your supported devices (see the column "supported modes") with
MSI Mode Utility (https://mega.nz/file/kd11WISZ#mBd-IKDz63-dkoVLxHpN4BerYxSi1npxr7cWTkMG-UY) (Right click on "MSI_util_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
Disable Fast Startup (https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1031533/) or totally disable hibernation (https://support.microsoft.com/help/920730/how-to-disable-and-re-enable-hibernation-on-a-computer-that-is-running) (Fast Startup included).

MoKiChU, thank you for coming back. Such a pain with Windows updates and sound breaking / not functioning properly for the most part from 2017 ! Oh man... All I wanted was to use my Logitech z506 with Hero IX and have speaker fill and all. Such a hassle for me , so thanks again for doing this !

Help! I had everything working before the recent update to SS3. I just tried to update my Audio drivers following the instructions above but I keep getting the following error:

"Install RealTEK Audio Driver Failure !!
[Error Code : 0x00000152]"

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for replying MoKiChu! I didn't expect an answer so fast! You are just as awesome as everyone has said on these forums!

I'm on Windows x64 1909 (Edu, as you said a version of enterprise) Build 18363.778 while it has the Store disabled by default but it can be enabled. I had already enabled access to the MS Store and it's when the MS Store updated Sonic Studio earlier this week(or last week) that I lost access to Sonic Studio with my previous drivers. That's why I tried updating my drivers with the package above to get Sonic studio working again... not sure what went wrong...I couldnt find info on error 0x00000152 anywhere. Which is when I posted my cry for help! :)

I was able to get back up and running with the 8666 driver package on the z390-e webpage( I thought that was a UAD driver isnt it?) with about 3 hrs of work last night. I don't have anymore time to work on these issues this week ( I teach and it's FINALS week! ) but I'll see what I can do when things calm down...

Thanks again!
Ghostnight

When i ran SS3 i got an error that either the hardware was not supported or the drivers were not installed correctly. After updating the drivers manually via Device Manager/Have disk option, SS3 worked fine. So if anyone else has a similar error message with SS3 or SR3 after installing the package, try the above suggestion by updating the drivers via DM and choose the "Have disk" option and point it to the unzipped drivers [e.g., "C:/Realtek UAD generic v6.0.8924.1\Win64\Realtek\Codec_8924.1\HDXASUS.inf". Do not choose the "HDXASUSTC.inf" file for a Z390 mobo, it is not the correct inf file for the ALC1220 audio chip, It's for hardware ID "10EC&DEV_1168".

Did anyone manage to get the Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer working? I'm trying to set up a fast and easy NVidia ShadowPlay recording gameplay. I've added Modern Warfare to the audio stream but it can't pick up any of the ingame sound (even when I switch to the manual mixer manually) :)

Thank you very much for your contribution that helped me a lot. however i have a short question my friend. when i open the sonic studio 3 and go to the record studio tab to activate the direct monitor and acoustic echo cancellation, the function does not stay activated. so if i close the program and open it again, the information is lost, do you have the same problem?

Hi.
I have an ROG Strix X570-E gaming mobo. I just can't get the drivers to work. If I remove everything and just let Windows install basic drivers, the audio works. But as soon as I try installing proper drivers no sound comes out of my speakers at all. I can see the audio meters go up and dow with the sounds but nothing from the speakers. I've done everything exactly as it is in your steps (ROG SS3, not sure if it's the correct one) twice and one attempt for ROG/PRIME/TUF and nothing works. I am at a loss. Can you help? Thanks.

What are the differences of the realtek drivers, UAD and HDA?

Thank you in advance.

@MoKiChU Thank You. A lot. Spent almost 11 hours trying to figure out what was wrong. Thank You.

Hi,

In order to choose correctly the install/update process to use : You have a ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard.

Follow scrupulously the INSTALL process (with cleanup step).




Hi,

HDA Drivers are for Windows 7 & Windows 10 1709/RS3/16299.x or more recent
UAD Drivers are only for Windows 10 64 bit 1709/RS3/16299.x or more recent (1903/19H1/18362.x or more recent for some Third Party drivers)

HDA Drivers use Win32/Legacy apps (including Realtek HD Audio Manager)
UAD Drivers use UWP apps downloaded from Microsoft Store (including Realtek Audio Control/Console)

HDA Drivers have a tray icon (possibility to disable it)
UAD Drivers don't have a tray icon (without possibility to enable it)


Glossary :

HDA = High Definition Audio
HDA (Realtek) = Standard (NVIDIA) = Legacy (Microsoft & Intel)

UAD = Universal Audio Driver
UAD (Realtek) = DCH (NVIDIA & Intel now) = DCHU (Microsoft) = UWD (Microsoft & Intel before)

DCH/DCHU = Declarative Componentized Hardware Support Apps Universal API compliance

UWD = Universal Windows Driver.


Thank you for this information good sir. I would leave this explaination on your post for realtek drivers. Just my opinion, for noobs like me.

Again thank you.

Wow, this seems like nightmare compared to usual driver updates. I'm in awe of you MoKiChU for figuring all this out!

I'll take a snapshot of my install before attempting, just to be safe. Seems like this resets and then is base for new Realtek going forward so only gotta go through the initial driver wiping/cleaning once, right? Then free to update as new releases are discovered and posted here by MoKiChU?

But before I do... so what exactly is new or improved compared to the 6.0.1.8666 driver and Sonic software from Asus? Some place I could see screenshots? I'm a dork so I just want the latest and greatest driver for anything, regardless of whether I actually need it or not. But this ain't no simple setup.exe or device mgr driver update.

SteverinoLA
05-07-2020, 12:02 AM
I did a system restore point and a full image to be safe, but no need. Process went 100% smooth by simply following your step by step. Now I'm freed from the Asus SS3 leash, thanks!

Two questions:

1) What the heck is the Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer? I added just b/c it was there thinking it was another UWP app but now see it's actually additional device in Speakers and Recording devices. What does it do and when would someone use it?

2) Is this the master thread to subscribe to in order to get informed of future SS3 updates?

Thanks again for all the hard work simplified to easy to follow steps!

SteverinoLA
05-07-2020, 12:49 AM
Roger. I'll do the full uninstall cleanup again for next release since I like running a tight ship and don't need the virtual mixer.

Extra thanks for introducing me to Driver Store Explorer, I've been wanting easy way to clean out my 10 year old drivers when my current install started off as a Win7 laptop, now a z390 desktop.

Mokichu, welcome back to ROG Forums, I was going to ask about this on the other platform but since you are back here...

I did my first .cmd style installation yesterday and it went smoothly, however there was a bit confusion on my part so I redid the installation with internet disabled, the whole time I was expecting to see the UI for Realtek's installer but that never came, I later figured that was the purpose. What confused me was this;

https://i.imgur.com/AjVP0Np.png

As you can see, the Audio IO properties still have the MS driver, but if you scroll down to software components, those are the new drivers. Do I need to fix this? If so, what should I do? Since everything is working fine, I figured wouldn't hurt to ask.

One other thing is a bit on the feedback side as far as the instructions go.


4)Use these A-Volute cleanup tools (https://mega.nz/#!xM9gGC5a!tJmIomaVeEJ587dgnSp2nEktF1Yc9XRg_vj2ltK 69L4) (Run as admin : 1- Third Party drivers cleanup <--- This one prompts a restart, I think it would be better to put that in the instructions because when I saw it for the first time, I thought something else triggered a restart prompt.

5) Perform a cleanup of the registry (with CCleaner Free or others) <-- Should we restart at this point or go straight to the .cmd installer?

Everything else is perfect.

Hi everyone,

Hi mokichu it's nice to see you again. there was no update for audio drivers for a long time. installed version 6.0.8945.1 sound quality is very good as it works smoothly with virtual mixer, thanks !!

Hey Mockichu, glad you are back you legend. I wanted to know is there a way to set the bass crossover frequency (the frequency used by the Bass management toggle) in the UAD drivers? If there is, how would one go about setting this? The toggle works in the UAD drivers, plus the ones you have posted, i just want to know what frequency it uses so that i can fiddle with it for my setup.

From the research i have done, HDA drivers have this functionality and can be "hacked" in the registry editor, but many have the same question on the UAD drivers (people are usually pointed to use the HDA drivers but then you are forces to use outdated versions of sonic studio and sonic radar).

DJ Asthma
05-11-2020, 11:30 AM
Hi,

Sorry, I can't advise you an action on your registry or any other "hack" way to configure your cut off frequency for UAD drivers.

However be aware that, If you install/use Sonic Studio III, know that the equalizer of Realtek Audio Control/Console is hidden and deported on Sonic Studio III (Basic Mode > Equalizer > Custom).

Hey, thanks for the prompt response and the information

First time updating and it worked like a charm. Did a Get Updates in Windows Store and got new Realtek CP. Awesome. One thing I immediately noticed is that the Amplify Level in Realtek CP now only applies to the front speakers in my quadraphonic setup. Setting back down to Performance equalizes the front/rear sound levels.

Here's a dumb question: "SS3" stands for Sonic Studio 3, right? My board prior to STRIX Z390-F was a Asus Pro Gaming Z170 which only had CP, no SS. Was there as SS2 at some point? And I notice that this thread applies to new Z490 boards. Is SS3 tied to the Realtek codec chip? Is there a SS4 out there or not until there's a codec chip newer than S1220 (I think)?

I've got a couple of questions for the OP. I installed the Realtek drivers from ASUS's website, version 6.0.1.8569, for my ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Omega motherboard. I previously only had the Windows generic drivers installed. The Realtek driver is obviously incomplete and older, since I never got Sonic Sound 3 included with the install. I'm also getting this error when I try to open the Realtek Audio Console - "Realtek Audio Console doesn't support for this machine" and yes, that's the English. Searching on this error I found that the ASUS driver I'm running is missing a file. I'd like to get the complete correct driver package for my motherboard so everything works.

So my questions are, is the driver in the first post the correct one for my motherboard and which install instructions are correct for my motherboard?

Since I've been reading other posters comments here about issues with the newest driver and Forza, would it behoove me to wait to update the driver until ASUS or Realtek fixes this new issue? I don't have Forza, but I'm worried about The Division 2, which has been really buggy with sounds and headsets. I'm currently using the optical output to my speakers since it has the most noise free sound.

EDIT: I went ahead and installed, per the instructions, the newest Realtek Driver you posted for my particular mobo. Now both the Realtek Audio Console and Sonic Sound 3 are installed and work without error. Thanks for the links and the instructions. They were an invaluable help. Why can't ASUS post the most recent driver on their own motherboard's website? Seems a little inattentive to us owners whenever we need new drivers to have to search the web and forums just to use the built-in functionality of our mobos.

A note to others. So far, The Division 2 seems to work fine with this sound driver. No crashes or issues.

Hi Mokichu,
- I didn't know what i should install for my Z370-E so I just followed the instruction for Asus ROG SS3. Was that the correct choice ?
Anyway, my pc rebooted automatically but I don't know how to check if the installation was successful. I don't see Realtek audio in Programs and Features.
- Btw won't you give us HDA driver anymore ? Kinda miss the system tray icon.
P/S: Will you stay active on MDL as well ?

Me, i'll just re-enable that setting when they push the "fixed" version. I'd rather stay up to date with my security fixes. Besides for me, changing that settings was less than 2 minutes of work. As to 20H1, i'll wait for it to get pushed. Not grabbing that manually.

That's good to know since I use my optical output. I will still wait until MS polishes this month's crop of patches first before installing. They've released and pulled a quite few bad patches after about a week of everyone's beta testing, sometimes even after a month has gone by, so I'll wait till the end of the month. I'm definitely not going to rush into the next version of Win 10.

Hello,
I have an Asus TUF Z390 motherboard - Pro Gaming - which drivers should I install? Sorry but there are so many versions and I want to try something different because standard is a tragedy ... I have Realtek S1200A
Second question - can I uninstall existing drivers using DDU? AND
Thank you for your help

Hello MoKiChU,

nice that you are back.

I have some questions that you might can answer:

- Is it possible to export and import settings within the Realtek Audio Console (or in another way)? If yes, how? Because experimenting with different drivers requires deleting the previous ones and having to change the settings manually every time is kind of frustrating.
- Is it possible to give speaker distance variables via keyboard or commandline? If yes, how? Because for now you can only use the arrow symbols via mouse, so you have to click waaay to many times to get your requested numbers.
- Is it possible to change the settings via config file or commandline (I could not find any path or file, maybe there are as keys in the registry of Windows)? If yes, how? Because the GUI is not a must for experienced users :).

Thank you in advance for your time and work.
Wish you a nice day.

Hi,

Sorry, I can't advise you an action or any other way to export the Realtek Audio Control/Console settings or to set settings by command-line.

That is sad :(. Aren't you allowed to or do you really do not know how to? If you cannot write openly you can write me via PM or I can give my mail.

Last question: Which driver do you recommend for a ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING mainboard?

Ahm010
05-20-2020, 03:07 PM
There's nothing secret about it, it's just that I don't want to make you try things without knowing exactly how the settings are saved (editing saved settings of a UWP app is much more complex than .ini file of a Win32/Legacy app).

Why try if you know exactly how it is done? Please tell me.
Is it via registry keys? Tell me. It doesn't matter for me how complex it is.

Ahm010
05-20-2020, 05:20 PM
Because nobody knows exactly except the Realtek software engineers, and all those who think they know it is pure speculation and random attempts without knowing the ins and outs. Please don't insist anymore ...

Please allow me one last question for today: Why do they keep it so secret? I mean there a millions of apps with import/export save files etc. Why is it a "problem" for Realtek? It shouldn't be a big deal imho. This kind of functions could be easily added by Realtek anytime soon or not? I guess this is not an "special" or "dangerous" or "forbidden" feature that no other app has, almost everyone has it except Realtek. Or am I wrong?

PS: If you do not want to write in public you can sent me PM or I can give you my mail-adress.

Ahm010
05-20-2020, 06:22 PM
I tell you again (and this is the last time I answer you about this), there is nothing secret about it, it is only you who see it this way. You ask me if it is possible to save or extract the settings of Realtek Audio Control : As you can see this is not possible, otherwise we would not have this discussion. But you ask if it is possible to do it via a hack, to make it simple and avoid going into I don't know what debate : No.

I have not asked anything about a "hack" (I never will). Just a simple official "where can I find the config file?" or "where is the path (or whatever it is) of it?", because it must be saved "somewhere", but okay.
No debate. Sorry, if you got angry or got me wrong. My apologies. I'm calm and friendly. Hope you are, too.
If you cannot help then it is no problem for me. But if you can help, but will not then I might be disappointed (but not angry or anything else, it is your choise at least). Thats it. Thanks.

Apparently you don't understand any of the concepts that are included in "driver" and software development...

The essential core of driver (components) code and software are closed source, which means the owner has the source code, and others don't. They have a commercial interest and do not share this with others so they can get rich because of their efforts/development.

So send an email to Realtek with your questions. They created and own the proprietary code for their products and @MokiChu 'only' assembles the components (closed source components from different vendors) and packages them in a working way.

Or you can take a course in software development and try to reverse engineer the UWP app :-)

I think none of you did understand what I try to tell. Maybe it is because of my bad english. I am sorry for this.
And it has nothing to do with closed source in the first place.
Again: I am not talking about hacking or anything related to it. Just an (maybe semi) official way.

Let's try with an example:
A closed source game from a commercial interested company.
When I play Counter Strike I can change my settings via GUI in the in-game menu. This settings get written into the file "config.cfg" and the path for the folder is "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\cfg".
OR I can directly (without using the in-game GUI) go the the mentioned path on my OS and open the "config.cfg" file via any editor and edit the variables in there and it got saved.
Both ways are legit and legal.

If I want to export/import my settings from my PC to my Laptop or my freshly installed PC or anything else I just have to copy that "old" folder and add it later on in the same place of my "new" installtion.

Both ways are official (and therefore allowed). Nothing to do with hack or closed source or ...

For the above mentioned methods I do not need any code (or deep programming knowledge).
----
Counter Strike has been choosen as example. There are millions of (closed source) games/apps/software that has this kind of possibilities too. But surprisingly RAC is not one of them.
----

So the question is (still): "Where is that path for Realtek Audio Console config/settings?" and "Which file to edit/import/export?".

Hope it is clearer now.


PS: I will also write to Realtek, because this should be a simple and standard feature (which is missing for years). Is this mail adress correct one: pctech [at] realtek (dot) com? Or to which adress should I write?

Hi,

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF) from this thread. Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

Note (in order to choose correctly the install/update process to use) : You have a ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard.

I've also have the Z370-E and looking at the spec of the board https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z370-E-GAMING/specifications/ it uses SS3.

After having many failed attempts with various drivers I came across this post, thank you :)
I followed the instructions to the letter from the ASUS ROG SS3 motherboards section but I couldn't get my version of Windows W10 Pro (x64 Version 1909 OS build 18363.836) to detect the Realtek output. I tried numerous times and was about to give up when I thought to try ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboards.

Following these instructions I could get the Realtek output to detect even though I didn't think this was for my board? (not sure what unbound means)

The only issue I have now...
When I connect something to the front panel audio this takes preference over the speakers connected in the rear and I also do not have an option for Front panel audio is sound settings, that would allow me to swap between front and rear connections. I am also unable to download the Realtek software from the MS store, it gives an error 'Something unexpected happened' Code: 0x803FB005

Any ideas would be greatfully appreciated.

Thanks again for all your hard work.

i have 2 questions.
1. i see that the file has a SS3 and the other the SS3 +dts. what boards are needed or i can use also that on the codexi? or the +dts are for x570 alone?
2. The Third Party SS3 Extension Driver have been updated & SS3 VAD Media Driver have been added. is on the same file or you update the file, in these case 6.0.8945.1has more new files correct?

Aside these i figure out why the app crash. it was my usb headphones. no idea why when i use those the app crash sometimes (Sonic Sudio) when i use the normal 3.5mm jack or other headphones in usb does not. maybe mine headphones need. And they do need replacement

Thanks.

Hi,

The ASUS ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF) from this thread with the ASUS ROG SS3 motherboards category.

Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, but this time to prevent Windows Update from generating a drivers install conflict, disable your Internet connection from the start of the CLEANUP process until the end of drivers install of the INSTALL process (after the restart). For the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

@MoKiChU,

Thanks for taking the time to reply. It's all up and running as expected :D
Disabling the internet connection must be the trick, as I couldn't get the S3 package to work previously.

Thanks for the help and advice.

Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

Note : Indeed, SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboards are for example the ROG X570 motherboards or the ROG Z490 motherboards.
Thanks for the clarificacion. so these dts files are for x570 and x490 board/chipset. thanks so much.


When you see an such update post with updated/added items to the drivers package, you just have to re download the drivers package then follow your UPDATE process (only what has changed will be updated/installed).
so these means if there is a add on like, for example the same driver number, and the add of these files, i can re update so i can add those new files correct? cause i see that there is a size of the file. ok I will reupdate Thanks for these.

Hi Mokichu,

Just wondering, like you automated the installation process, do you think the cleanup process could be automated too? Thank you

dfaovred
05-29-2020, 04:06 PM
Hi,

Yes it is possible, but I will not do it because it would require a complex PowerShell script coupled with an .exe from the Windows WDK (devcon.exe) not included natively in Windows system files, whose efficiency and action can be random and whose script would not be easily understood by most people and generate transparency problems with what the script does. Knowing that the cleanup must be performed only during the first install, I prefer that people perform these simple actions manually and effectively and so that they know and understand what they are doing.

Those who have been following me for a long time know that I have always tried to offer the most refined drivers and the most integrated in the system (Drivers Only) when the number of .inf to install manually is not excessive.

The .cmds used here for the install/update of Realtek Audio Drivers is a continuation of this Drivers Only logic (the .cmds use Microsoft PNPUtil (which is included natively in every Windows system files) and contain only a check of the admin right then an automation of the equivalent of a right click then Install on each necessary .inf, in the necessary order, according to the case then an auto restart).

Spot on MoKiChU, there are far too many variables for each system and it could cause a lot of issues.

I didn't like the instant restart at the end of the script so I removed it and added a pause plus some text reminding me to restart.

Thanks again MoKiChU. :)

I do the cleanup every time I update just to be safe, no issues so far. Biggest hassle would be re-setting the speaker distances and dBs etc from the Audio Control Panel but no biggie.

I also like it as you have it now. The cleanup is pain but you only gotta do it once so step by step by hand is safest since you don't know how techie the end users are here so I think best to keep it simple series of steps as is today. I'm a tech dork so I always look at the cmd scripts in textpad so I know exactly what's it's going to do. Great job!

It may sound ridiculous, but when I had my B350-F what I had to do was open the Realtek Audio Console each startup and click the test speaker button. It would pop the first time, then it seemed like audio was clean for the rest of the boot (including if resumed from sleep).

But alternatively, audio crackling and popping can be unstable fabric clock as well.

edit: should mention I did follow the steps for cleanup, and was running MSI mode.

Hi MoKiChU

Really appriciate all your time and effort on these driver updates and install support, not sure if I've stumbled on an issue or quirk but I find using Displayport to my monitor can often give crackles and pops through it's built in speakers, but switching my monitor cable over to HDM1 2.0 resolves this.
Driver changes do not seem to improve, sticking with HDMI currently :)

Was curious as to if this monitor audio issue was tied to the Maximus as my previous Z370 board was a Gigabyte and this crackle issue was not apparent when using the same RTX2080TI.

Asus Audio through the speakers sounds great and i've not had any pop/crackle issues during games or media even when CPU loads are high, which from what i've read seems a common problem.

Salad :D

Hi,

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF MB) from this thread. Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

Note (in order to choose correctly the install/update process to use) : You have a ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard.

First of all THANKS for all your effort. This is great stuff!

I have a problem with Realtek Audio Console when using the RTK package - it doesn't open and just shows a splash screen with spinning wheel.
I've been using the SS3 file on previous installs and it worked then, but I wanted to get rid of the Sonic Mixer device and the drivers that come with it.
Do you know how to mitigate it? I re-installed the audio console multiple times to no avail.

I fully cleaned the driverstore before install and I'm using a X470-F board.

06-10-2020, 08:24 AM
I falsely assumed that the ROG/PRIME/TUF RTK package was the universal "RTK only" driver for all lines of boards.
Thanks for clearing that up so quickly and providing the patch. I will follow your directions.

EDIT: Thank you. That did the trick! Will you be providing these SSVM Removal Patches somewhere for future driver releases or am I able to use this one for all installs?

Hi,

It does not work like that, please do not take such an initiative without knowing. You cannot change the .cmd as you wish, there is only one .cmd suitable for your motherboard, you must use only this one (Install_ROG_SS3.cmd). Here is how to do what you want :


- Download this patch (SSVM Remover Patch) : Link (https://mega.nz/file/8IkgTCIB#QGSa3VYW04e6_Ncle8PRYp256-UWhlxQ6BLCcTkQVjs)
- Extract the contents of the SSVM_Remover_Patch folder in your drivers package folder (AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG-PRIME-TUF_MB_v6.0.xxxx.x).
- Accept the request to overwrite files/merge folders.
- Delete the OEM_INF_Media_-_ASUS folder from your drivers package folder (which is in : AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG-PRIME-TUF_MB_v6.0.xxxx.x\ThirdParty\SS3).
- Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step.

Hello MoKiChU

I've got Asus maximus X Hero (ss3) board and been using old standalone process with your latest drivers. Is standalone (realtek audio control only) process still same?

My process goes like this: Remove thirdparty folder, run Install_ROG_SS3 cmd as admin and install. I had no problems for last 2 months but after seeing SSVM_Remover_Patch I'm totally confused now. Can you please explain if process changed with new cmd installations? Thank you in advance.

Hi,

I also got this Sonic Studio III v3.6.10.0 update from MS Store (like all ROG SS3 and ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound users) but I have no issue.

A Volute and Nahimic was sold to SteelSeries. these issue is not new. these has come since 1903. There is a reason for these and is not my place. there are people more intelligent to explain these on app level. But we will have to adapt. and I am gratefully that i have audio.

Now, i can be wrong. but since these 2020 is the start of UWP applications push by MS. some new changes are in. I check why the issue and is my Razer Seiren Elite. is working fine but SS3 do not like it. I will plug the other one i have tomorrow that is the beyerdynamic FOX and test. Since I am doing something new now, i can not test all scenarios. need to be ready for June 27 but i will test all sides since i like my music nice.

These 2 apps are not push by MS anymore. but are needed and is need on all Realtek OEM board

You may be have kind of conflicts with others devices/drivers/softwares, so in order to determine which one generates the conflict, try this :


- Disconnect all the USB dongle peripheral devices.
- Uninstall all the software of your headset/headphones/mic and/or peripheral devices which could contain audio modules like ROG Armoury (even if you installed the software for a device which is not audio).
- Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, but this time to prevent Windows Update from generating a drivers install conflict, disable your Internet connection from the start of the CLEANUP process until the end of drivers install of the INSTALL process (after the restart).

If everything works after that, reconnect the USB dongle & Install the software of your headset/headphones/mic/peripheral devices one by one in order to determine which one generates the conflict then that you can report it to the adequate support service of the problematic device.

I did thanks. Yes was my razer serien elite. even that the peripheral does not have any software at all, windows install 2 one for mic and other other for the wavetable since has internal dac. once that is off (disconnect from the pc) the SS3 will not crash. i think ss3 do not like my mic =) . is ok. I ask my friend to borrow it, since they have almost the same functionality and test other ports on my board. I will dig more if i can more data. thanks for the tips. the odd part is that is not always and if you try to access once 1 the first crash the SS3 give you a note. I will send that later, since i know what is what i can duplicate. i will send that later.

I have never seen Windows Update push A-Volute/Nahimic stuff before, but this auto update basically downgraded my Software Component 1.8.1.0

https://i.imgur.com/KxdqdGN.png

Edit: @Mokichu, how can I update the A-Volute Nh3 Audio Effects Component back to 1.8.1.0? I tried to a clean install but it didn't work. I tried to run the cmd script, that didn't do it. I tried to update via device manager "update driver" and pointed it to the folder where "A-Volute_APO_3_-_SWC" is but then it said invalid data.

Things are working but I am curious how to update this back?

Hi,

Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, but this time to prevent Windows Update from generating a drivers install conflict, disable your Internet connection from the start of the CLEANUP process until the end of drivers install of the INSTALL process (after the restart).

This happened on my machine AFTER the INSTALL process. I've had the drivers installed since Windows 10 2004 came out (clean install on OS and Drivers) and it automatically installed the 1.8.0.0 OVER the cleanly installed drivers so I guess it's some kind of forced update.

Stex-red
06-13-2020, 01:35 PM
you can always just disable the drivers updating that windows do (windows 10 pro)
i prefer doing that myself manually :)

Bushmaster78FS
06-13-2020, 04:34 PM
I also went through what Cody did. My installation was working perfectly and Windows downgraded my software component. Then I did a clean install and this time nahimic service and avolute components didn't install. This past few days were a pain because of this. I then had to clean out everything once again and installed the final UAD from ASUS support and then I installed Mokichu's final drivers on top and they worked.

I tried to update the driver with device manager and if said invalid data. I'll try to roll back and report here.

Alright, I tried to roll back the 1.8.0.0... Result;

https://i.imgur.com/22kXh9i.png

Remember though I had to install Realtek UAD Audio Driver (6.0.1.8666) from ASUS support, because when I did a clean install last time, it refused to install Nahimic service and A-Volute components via the cmd script therefore I couldn't open the Sonic software. That is why it rolled back to 1.3.0.0. Once the ASUS software was installed, I was able to overwrite its components via the 6.0.8960.1 cmd script.

So since rolling back didn't work for me, I tried to point Device Manager to do a manual update, the result was not good;

https://i.imgur.com/HiKpR5e.png

After this I tried DriverStore Explorer to install it the 1.8.1.0 for me and that didn't work either.

https://i.imgur.com/auV3r3m.png

So at the moment I am stuck with 1.8.0.0 and everything works, but not sure how the next update is going to be.

Bushmaster78FS

Hi,

You can do a cleanup after each update (I recommend it to you) via Driver Store Explorer :

- Click on the "Select Old Drivers" button
- Check the box "Force Deletion" then click on the "Delete Package" button
- Restart your PC

Note : If the old drivers cleanup is not done after the update, they will be deleted anyway by Windows Disk Cleanup (if the obsolete drivers box is checked).

Thanks Mo, that's exactly what I just did :)

Hi mokichu, I appreciate everything you do around here.

I wanted to ask you what amplify level does and which one I should use for the best quality.

Hi,

When you plug (unplug then plug if already plugged) the jack 3.5 mm of a headphone, the automatic impedance detection will automatically choose the appropriate level of amplification for you (depending on the impedance of the headphone), but you can force it to Powerful or Extreme manually.

On the other hand, when you use jack 3.5mm to connect audio active/powered equipment (like powered speakers), the automatic impedance detection does not distinguish between passive (like a headphone) and active equipment (like powered speakers) and therefore will wrongly try to detect the impedance audio active/powered equipment, and wrongly adjust the amplification level to Extreme while a audio active/powered equipment should not receive amplified audio stream (to avoid reducing the lifespan of your equipment and not to saturate the sound spectrum).

So, in order to avoid reducing the lifespan of your equipment and not to saturate the sound spectrum, I advise all people who use jack 3.5mm to connect audio active/powered equipment (headsets jack 3.5 mm are not concerned because they are passive/not powered equipment) to set this parameter on Performance, whatever the result of the automatic impedance detection.

Bushmaster78FS
06-14-2020, 02:50 PM
I always thought those settings were headphones related but settings differently affect the decibels being delivered only to front left and right in my 5.1 Sony speakers. Also I believe I will have to look in my manual to see what the impedance for the system is. Never knew. I use my Apple Watch's noise app for determining what sound level each speaker is producing

Bushmaster78FS
06-14-2020, 08:44 PM
Hi Mokichu. No these are Sony SRS-D5100. I bought them back in 2006 and they are Sony's last analog 5.1 speakers for PCs. 14 years old and still kicking. I love Sony.

Thanks for responding, so just to be sure I have everything connected right,

I have my Sennheiser 58x connected at the rear port and it automatically set it to extreme and left like that
I also have my sony ht-ct370 sound bar connected to the front port and it automatically got set to extreme and lowered it to performance like you said.

Are both of these in the correct configuration?

06-15-2020, 03:55 AM
Well ;)

So, i recommand you to set the amplification level on Performance, whatever the result of the automatic impedance detection.

Yes like you said Mokichu, it set to Extreme as soon as I unplugged and re-plugged. I set it to Performance. (Actually they misspelled it in the app as "Performace", anyone noticed that? :))) )

I also have an X99 Deluxe II which will not send audio over HDMI to my display speakers. Asus support page for this board has Realtek drivers from 2016 (REALTEK HM_TUF V6.0.1.7848). Owners Manual says "Realtek® ALC1150 8-channel high definition audio CODEC featuring Crystal Sound 3".

Can you please tell me what drivers I need for this board?

Audio via HDMI has nothing to do with the Realtek Audio drivers dedicated to your motherboard, Audio via HDMI is managed via the Audio drivers of your graphics card.

Yes now that you mention it - don't know what I was thinking. Will will update them anyway then go after the GPU. Thanks.

On the Max X Hero Wifi, I uninstalled all the indicated drivers. I don't really use the Sonic stuff so tried to do the manual install of RealTek Audio Console through your link which takes me to the Windows Store. When I try to download it, I get and error. If I select details it says Something unexpected happened and gives me the option to report it. Tried several times. I will try running your Install_ROG_SS3.cmd file and see if that works. I can always delete Sonic Radar III and Sonic Studio (I hope).

update - Ran Install_ROG_SS3.cmd which seemed to run ok - it rebooted. After reboot there was no RealTek Audio Console and no Sonic apps. So I tried the Realtek manual link to the Windows Store and this time it downloaded. Downloaded Sonic Studio too but not Sonic Radar. Now when I run RealTek Audio Console I get a spinning wheel for awhile then it says "Can not connect to RPC service". Sonic Studio III seems to work OK. I don't know what the problem is with RealTek Audio Console. Google search says check that Realtek HD Audio Universal Service, DCOM server process launcher, Remote Procedure Call (RPC), and RPC Endpoint manager services are running - they are.

I will be honest with you, I plan to give up on what I do, the closing of one of my threads by the moderators (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?117739-FIRMWARE-Intel-ME-(Z390)/page8#post808103) and the bias by the moderators towards a **** troller has something to do with it, I would no longer be here, the time to think about all of that, but I will most likely drop all and ****ed up all, so make backups of what you need.

Wow - I hope this is not because I am having some difficulty with the driver updates and asking for your input. It looks like somehow I have the HD drivers installed instead of the UAD drivers. I will figure it out. Please don't abandon this because I screwed up a driver update. There are many people on this forum (myself included) that REALLY appreciate what you do. I won't trouble you with this again. Thanks for all your help.

No no why you will be for something, you have nothing to do with it, whatever your issue is not your fault, and it's not related to my previous message at all, it was a more general message to the community.

OK thank you for clarifying that. I would hate to be the one that drove you away from this forum. I remember when you had an issue with some guy who had some difficulties with a firmware update and it got ugly. Keeping up with all of these driver and firmware updates in not easy which is why so many people are so grateful that you do all of this work to make it easier for us.

I suspected I may have issues messing with these RealTek drivers before I tried to update them. It's still not working for me so I will go through the process again more carefully as I am sure it is my error and not an error in your cmd file. In the end I will either get the RealTek Audio Console to work or I won't. It's not a big deal to me really as I will probably never use it anyway. I am just one of those people who likes to have up to date drivers and was very happy to see you return.

I don't know what is going on between you and the moderator. Seeing an actual Asus employee presence on this forum seems to be the exception rather than the rule. Sometimes I think Asus barely even looks at these threads. They certainly don't normally respond. Whatever you decide, I just want to say thanks for all the help you have given me and so many others.

I really don't understand the negativity towards MoKiChU, he presents us with great drivers and an enormous amount of technical information and assistance.

He does not work for Asus, he does it off his own back and in his own time. I think the mods need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture here.

His contribution to this forum and the ROG space in general far outweighs the one or two issues he has had with users. I'm sure it was just a clash of language barriers and no malice or intent to harm any user is ever present.

Everyone should put aside their ego's and help us end users to continue using Asus products.

Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, but this time to prevent Windows Update from generating a drivers install conflict, disable your Internet connection from the start of the CLEANUP process until the end of drivers install of the INSTALL process (after the restart).

Ok thanks for the suggestion. I will try this. It's weird. I see what I think are all the correct UAD drivers but RealTek Audio Console just keep saying "Can not connect to RPC Service". I am pretty sure it is a driver problem. I will delete the apps then the drivers and try again with internet disabled. I am running Windows Insider build 21050.10000 if that makes any difference.

update - Well sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes it's just not worth the fight.


I have done exactly what your instructions say, a bunch of times, with and without all network adapters disabled.

Device Manager and Driver Store show RealTek(R) Audio driver 6.0.8960.1 which is the UAD driver, so I don' think it's because I have the HD driver installed.

I tried Asus specific drivers from Station Drivers. They have ver R2.8x (8950.1) which I think is older that what your .cmd file loads (6.0.8930.1). Didn't work.

I tried the latest on the Asus support page for the mobo which just loaded an older driver (ver 6.0.1.8746). Didnt' work

Everything I have read says this happens because the HD Audio driver is installed instead of the UAD driver, which I really don't is my issue.

I read that you may also have to update Device Manager -> Software Components - Realtek Audio Effects Component and Realtek Audio Universal Service. I have Realtek Audio Effects Component ver 11.0.6000.780 and Realtek Audio Universal Service ver 1.0.0.261both dated May 26, 2020 so I think these are the latest.

Sonic Studio 3 works fine. RealTek Audio Console still says "Can not connect to RPC service".


I recall that RealTek Audio Console used to work on this system at some point in the past. I played around with it for 5 min and never opened it again. Getting this little audio app to run is just not that important to me to go through all this and many, many reboots trying to get this working. Screw it - I am done. Maybe I will fight with it some other day. In the mean time, thanks for your help and congrats to those who were successful.

Your Realtek Audio Universal Service probably not launched when your PC starts (it is necessary for Realtek Audio Control).

Follow last time scrupulously your CLEANUP process then INSTALL process, if your issue still here :


- Download this reg script : Link (https://bayfiles.com/rbZeI5B6oc/RPC_Fix_reg)
- Launch it
- Restart your PC

Hi MoKiChU,

RealTek Audio Universal Service is set to Automatic startup and is running.

Reg Script Link - I got your Reg Fix file and see that is ensures that the RealTek Audio Service starts. Since it is running I don't think that is going to change anything.

I made very sure all of the RealTek audio drivers were deleted in Driver Store Explorer, rebooted and confirmed in Drive Store Explorer and Device Manager that all audio drivers were MS defaults. There are RealTek network adapter and Blue Tooth drivers which I did not delete.

Note that the .cmd file "Install_ROG_SS3.cmd" installed RealTek Audio Console (RAC) and SS3 automatically the first time but every try after I had to download and install them from the MS Store. I rebooted after installing them to ensure a clean state. After reboot:

Ran SS3 which seemed fine through I did not test every control.

Ran RAC and after some spinning wheel got the "Can not connect to RPC Service" error.

Uninstalled RAC and SSW from Settings -> Apps

Used Driver Store Explorer to force delete the required drivers

Rebooted and checked in Driver Store Explorer and Device Manager that all audio drivers were MS defaults

Ran "Install_ROG_SS3.cmd" as admin

Rebooted again (after your .cmd initiated reboot)

The drivers I ended up with after doing this and installing RAC and SS3 are as follows.


a-volutenh3aposwc.inf 1.8.1.0
avolutess3ext.inf 1.3.8.0
avolutess3vad.inf 10.38.41.588
hdx_asusext_avo_trk.inf 6.0.8960.1 (not sure this one is supposed to be there)
hdxasus.inf 6.0.8960.1
realtekapo.inf 11.0.6000.780
realtekasio.inf 1.0.0.5
realtekhsa.inf 11.0.6000.219
realtekservice.inf 1.0.0.261


I will go through the process again but I don;t think it's operator error. If I am doing something wrong, I am doing it every time! Thank you again for all of your help.

Yes I think you are right but I am ok with it. I am on insider build 20150 and I am doing this from an admin account. I am not going to re-install Windows to get the RealTek Audio Console to work. As I mentioned earlier, in the past (different Windows build) it did work but I never did more than fool with it for a few minutes. So I will let it go. It does indicate that the Windows version may affect this app's ability to function. This information may be of interest to others who may be struggling with it so here's to hoping that this helps someone else.

Thank you for reviewing the driver list and letting me know your thoughts on why it won't run on this machine.

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/TUF NB) from my UAD notebooks drivers thread (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?118396-DRIVERS-Realtek-Audio-(UAD-Notebooks)).

Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

Note (in order to choose correctly the install/update process to use) : You have a ASUS ROG SS3 notebook.

Thanks a ton!
Everything works.

- Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process

Hi mokichu, first of all thank you for coming back, this community really appreciate what you're doing!

Now I did the full process two times just this morning, uninstalled sonic studio and realtek UAD apps, restarted, deleted these 9 drivers https://i.imgur.com/HEZjZj8.png, Ran SS3 cleanup - it showed it hasnt found the nahimic drivers, restarted again, and ran Install_ROG_SS3.cmd for ( Should be correct for Z370-e) as admin, after restart - same issue occurs. I would rather just use clean drivers, but my speakers require the volume boost i get from Sonic Studio.

Edit: Actually after reinstalling Sonic Studio 3 app from the windows store again solved the issue, thank you for the suggestion!

Just wanted to let you know that installing the ROG SS3 package was NOT reversible with WIndows 10 system recovery (i created a restore point prior to installing these) , resulting in a hanging restore process trying to recover the registry.

Also it completely destroyed the calibration of my USB COBRA MK5 , Joystick (after installing the drivers , rebooting and starting Elite Dangerous my Ship was in spin that couldnt be recovered from). Thats when i tried to go back and use system recovery. I had to remove these devices, shut down, reboot ,they wouldnt show up anymore, shutdown again disconnect the devices from the computer, reboot, shutdown again, boot ,plugin joystick 1 (HOTAS X ) after desktop loaed,, shutdown, plugin COBRA MK5 (this one NEEDs to be plugged in while the system is powered off) boot, all devices work again as they should. Something with that driver install has messed with things it shouldnt mess with.

(note that both HOTAS X and Cobra MK5 do not use 3rd party drivers or software, they are supported natively by windows 10)

This is definitely the worst driver you have released so far, I did all the steps until I was able to install the drivers without the virtual mixer, but the realtek panel in the store doesn’t work with the equalizer, I did the installation clean and it still doesn’t work, you can post the link from the previous driver, I will continue using the old one until you repair the next drivers, I am on the Windows 1909 version, thanks.

It's working even in windows version 2004
So You may need to fully remove all drivers .
Thanks

I did this step, but realtek does not install, there is an error in the microsoft store when trying to install Realtek Audio Control, should I follow the step with SSVM Remover Patch?

I just wanted the drivers to work with realtek audio control with equalizer as it worked before, what should I do? I'm kind of lost here in the information.

Install/Update Process :

CLEANUP

/!\ If you already had Realtek (HD) Audio Driver, Realtek Audio Control installed /!\
Uninstall them (Start > Settings > Apps) then restart your PC
- Launch Driver Store Explorer > Check the boxes of all versions of drivers which .inf starts with (if you find them) :
a-volute | avolute | dts | hdx | realtek
- Check the box "Force Deletion" then click on the "Delete Package" button then restart your PC

INSTALL

- Launch "Install_ROG-PRIME-TUF_RTK.cmd" by right-click Run as admin > Automatic restart when install is done
- Automatic installation of Realtek Audio Control after rebooting, if not, install it manually : Link

UPDATE

- Launch "Install_ROG-PRIME-TUF_RTK.cmd" by right-click Run as admin > Automatic restart when install is done

Note : Realtek Audio Control will be updated automatically via the MS Store.

Hi,

As previously explained, SSVM is no longer included/used in your drivers package, so download the new/updated drivers package then follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

Hi,

Thank you very much I did a full cleanup, downloaded new updated version of the drivers, installed it and now it is all gucci :) Virtual mixer is gone and sound works as intended. The only change I noticed is that now when I use GoXlr mixer connected via usb when I open Realtek Audio Console or HD Manager, they are blank and it says "You are seeing a blank page because there is no audio devices plugged in the system. To activate GUI, please plug an audio device in the system" When I plug in my headphones directly to my pc front audio jack then the Audio Console and HD manager are populated. In the previous versions I could see both consoles populated even when I had everything routed vis GoXLR mixer since I use it as my main audio device. GoXLR is an audio device and it's plugged in the system so I don't understand why I get this message now. Anyway Thx for the updated drivers :)

I just installed the last update from the ASUS site and the virtual mixer is gone, but I would like to have a decent mixer.. The basic one doesn't seem to do much.

Does anyone know what the AsusUpdateCheck.exe or AsusDownloadLicense.exe is that I am seeing with my Z490 board in the Win 10 Insiders Build? It is in the Windows\System32 folder but it is not on my Z370 board with the public build..

After reboot i dont have realtek audio console installed.

if not, install it manually

So, the solution is install the realtek audio console from MS store ? I think that realtek console was include in some folder and i can install manually.

I say this, because a have not the MS store installed.

I have reinstall the MS store... but the funniest thing is that you can't download the audio console from the MS store :rolleyes: it does not work ! xDD

Please fix your Microsoft Store (if you can't, clean install your Windows 10 with Microsoft Store built-in and not added manually).

If you do not have functional Microsoft Store, this is a problem, because even if you can install the apps via offline installers, these will not be automatically updated.

I am having issues with this new driver. It installs but I can not get the realtek audio control to open up??? It installs but will not open up at all. I have followed your directions too a "T", but no go?

Can you by any chance give me the previous driver you posted before this new one today.

I love you dude @MoKiChU

If anyone is googling trying to find solution to their problem I will describe mine.

After windows update late June 2020 my mic stopped working. I have Vmooda boom pro mic. It's mic on cable that you can connect to headphones with detachable cable, so you can combine good headphones (eg Philips fidelion x2) with PC without any more cables. It works on 4pin 3,5jack -all in one, but this is not important. After win update my mic stopped working, headphones and audio were fine. I pulled my hair out trying to find what's wrong, of course it was win installing different drivers. So long story short, I finally came to this driver that actually worked and my mic and audio works fine.
I have rog strix II GL504M and I used SS3 driver. Thank you again sir.

PS: maybe next time you can look at aura core lighting drivers, they are mess too hehehehe :D

Guys, sorry if this was asked before, for the default format in the Realtek Audio Control what do you select? I usually select 96000Hz and 24bits because way back when I had a Creative card, this setting was the cleanest sound. Just curious.

Also, Mokichu, this driver update I only did the "update" rather than clean install, and it nicely updated, everything works, except the software component "A-Volute Nh3 Audio Effects Component" is stuck at 1.8.0.0, can't update this one for some reason. Again, everything works so I take it as is. Thank you for your hard work.

After that no more static!! Weird stuff! So the realtek drivers obviously needs some work, atleast on my asus z490-g.

EDIT: And i just changed back to the realtek drivers and now the static is not there anymore. I don't get this.

Not the best place to post my findings, but because some people asked Mokichu on this thread about it i wanted togive an update on the matter of Forza Horizon 4 Crashing because of the nahimic service.

Looks like Nahimic has fixed the issue with Forza horizon 4 and SS3, noted that there is no profile in the application list for forza in SS3 but the game is not crashing, been running it for 30 minutes so far and no crash.

here is the thread on the matter:

Hi everyone,

The Third Party DTS APO4x Service SoftwareComponent Driver have been updated.


Thread, post & drivers package updated.

Thank you as always.
I am with your AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG-PRIME-TUF_MB_v6.0.8960.1.7z at the moment and made a CLEAN INSTALL for installing them as you told me to do so coming from my old drivers, still from you.
I'm with ASUS ROG SS3 motherboards and for future updates you mentioned that I could go directly for the UPDATE process (- Launch "Install_ROG_SS3.cmd" by right-click Run as admin > Automatic restart when install is done)

Is it still the same? Thanks!

Hi MoKiChU,

First off I'd just like to say thank you for graciously offering your time and support to the community and your awesome installer tool. Asus themselves could learn a thing or two from you.

I have a few questions to ask that I'm hoping you or someone else here could maybe help with.

When using ASIO4ALL in my DAW software I can only access 2 of the inputs at any one time. The rest of the inputs remain in use (beyond logic). I have no other software open at the time when this is happening. Do you have any experience with this?

Also are you aware of any way/tool/registry edits to retask more of the audio jacks with this driver. With my previous motherboard I'm pretty sure I could retask all of the audio jacks as line-in ports but I am not able to with this driver/interface.

I have a few more queries but I'll leave it here for now.

(EDIT: Oh yeah, my mobo is Asus x570 ROG STRIX Gaming-E)

Thanks again!

DTS Sound Unbound cannot be managed from here (Realtek Audio Control), there is a dedicated application (which you will find in your Install Process).

Anyway, in order to start on a good basis :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF MB) from this thread. Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

Note (in order to choose correctly the install/update process to use) : You have a ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard.

I read your first post again and see it's a seperate app, sorry, but thanks for responding

I did a clean install according to instructions, including disconnecting the network. Once again, NH3/SS3 APO SoftwareComponent Driver : 1.8.2.0 WHQL [16/06/2020] (A-VoluteNh3ApoSwc.inf) did not install. After the installation, I went to the folder and tried manually, error message pops up "The data is invalid". Then I went to Microsoft Update Catalog. That catalog has 1.8.1.0 currently available. Downloaded it and tried to install manually, and it installed. I don't understand how. This inf file is not installing via Mokichu's package but it is installing via Microsoft update. Has anyone been dealing with this issue?

Edit: A-VoluteNh3ApoSwc.inf is not installing at all and therefore Sonic Studio doesn't work. Any ASUS OEM driver package isn't installing either. So right now my audio driver package is somehow ruined and I don't know what else I can do short of a clean Windows install at this point.

Hi MoKiChu, I have a Z490-E. Which set of drivers should I download?
Thank you!

Bushmaster78FS
08-01-2020, 04:18 AM
You've been dealing with this issue for quite a while now, and you are the only one in this case to my knowledge, this issue is on your side, so, please do not ask the question at each update but instead fix your Windows install.

The problem only arose after Windows Update pushed the A-Volute software component. AFAIK, several others complained about the problem at that time, I am only giving you feedback as to the progress of the issue since you are manufacturing these drivers. I understand you do not want this feedback. Honestly, it is disappointing that we are not attempting to get to the bottom of this, but it is fine. I do want the driver development to continue. The only way I know how to fix the Windows install at this point is a clean install.

Could you please tell me, when I install the windows clean, do I only follow the install portion of the instructions?

Bushmaster78FS
08-01-2020, 05:44 AM
I do not manufacture anything at all, it's Realtek and its partners (like A-Volute/DTS/Dolby) who manufacture the drivers and Microsoft who valid/sign them WHQL, moreover, your issue has nothing to do with the drivers themselves but instead to your Windows install and your Windows Update cache. So there is no point in feedback several times something that neither me nor the creators of the drivers can do anything about it knowing that the problem is on your side.

Well I was talking figuratively, not literally. You do compile these drivers for us ASUS users and we thank you for that. No disagreement there, absolutely everything was fine until Windows update pushed that avolute update and I could't revert back, other than that drivers are perfectly fine. I am only worried how to prevent another clean install if my update/system gets corrupt again. I didn't know who else to ask for help.



Correct, you will can directly follow your INSTALL process. For the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

My clean install is currently complete and system is bare bones. I will now download and try the latest drivers first thing.


EDIT: It installed flawlessly and works like a breeze on a clean system. I just have to be make sure the system/windows update process don't get corrupted again!

Hi,

I don't really understand your question :

If your question is "can you use other drivers than those designed for your motherboard type ?", the answer is no.

If your question is "which drivers package & install/update process you should use for your motherboard type ?" :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF MB) from the first post of this thread.

You have an ASUS ROG SS3 motherboards.

Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

Thanks for the answer.

Hi (continue not to say hi/hello and I will no longer respond to the person who does not say hello, i'm fed up with this lack of politeness, I am not at your service),

If you are not satisfied with what I offer, I suggest you use the drivers from your product support page instead use what I offer.

I try not to the clog up threads, but if I am going to post, I start by thanking you Mokichu. Thank you!

I think you should add this disclaimer at the top of all of your driver threads:

These drivers are NOT SUPPORTED on your motherboard. On your motherboard page at Asus website, you will find drives that have been thoroughly vetted by the fine folks at Asus and they work perfectly fine. Use these drivers at your own risk and always create a restore point or a system image before installing. If you don't know how to create a restore point, then you are NOT qualified to use these drivers. Just use the download found on your motherboard page.

I spend a lot of time monitoring 3rd party vendors for these driver updates and then packaging them into a simple installer. These are not "my' drivers and I have no idea if they'll work for you or not.

Furthermore, the Asus moderators of this forum are doing all of us tech-savvy folks a huge favor by allowing me to post my threads here. Unqualified users who complain about issues w/these unsupported drivers will just ruin it for everyone. If you have any issue, just restore your Restore Point. If you didn't create a Restore Point, then you shouldn't be downloading anything I post or even be here at all.

Hi Mokichu, sorry about for not using a greeting in the past, I went back and there were a few. I agree with you, a little nicety here and there goes a long way. You do us a great favor by compiling what the latest is, not only audio drivers but others too. Thank you for that.

I am sure you remember my avolute software component woes from a couple of weeks ago. The issue was, out of all things, the location where I extracted the 7z file. If I picked the folder I use for storing all backup drivers, on extraction a \\?\ line was being added and therefore the cmd script wasn't able to use it ...

It's interesting how much Realtek keeps fiddling with the control panel w/these recent releases. The amplification dropdown disappeared a few releases ago and with this new release, they've moved the equalizer and some other settings from Sonic Studio into the control panel. Works fine as always, but make up your mind Realtek!!

Hi MoKiChU,

First of all thanks for all your hard work! I wanted to confirm I installed the correct drivers: I have an Asus TUF 505DT which came with DTS Headphone X V.1 per-installed so I went with the TUF headphone X v.1 motherboard package last week. I have the 6.0.8984.1 version installed right now.

My main problem is that, when I still had my original Realtek driver, the loudness equalization toggle disappeared some time ago from the Realtek Audio Console for no apparent reason .Oddly enough when I would reinstall the Realtek driver the toggle would be there but disappear again on a restart. Your newer driver packages were my final hope but, unfortunately, the LE toggle is still missing even though everything installed fine. I think DTS Headphone X is the ultimate culprit but I don't get why it worked just fine for 6 months. The DTS Audio app has some extra options when I don't have my headphones plugged in but when they are the options are very limited (primarily to headphone types) and the LE toggle is still missing from the Realtek Audio Console. If you or anyone else have any ideas I would really appreciate it.I'll check out your current updated drivers and do a clean install on them with the full cleanup process and hope for the best.

Thanks again!

Are you referring to the Amplification setting in Realtek CP? The drop down with Performance, Balanced, and Extreme? That option disappeared a couple releases ago. Realtek took it out of CP for some reason. When you update to these latest drivers, you get the latest CP and Sonic Studio apps. But these apps are downloaded from Windows Store shortly after you reboot, so you may briefly see old CP and then the new one once Windows installs the latest from the Store. So it's Realtek changing or moving these options in the latest CP download, not the drivers themselves.

Hi,

Nope it had equalizer bars along with the Loudness Equalization toggle under playback devices. I've attached an image of how it used to look (not mine but still the same). Now the bars and the toggles are gone and it just says DTS Sound Effects. I can only get LE again if I install the generic MS drivers and use the advanced options in sound settings. They're not there when using the Realtek drivers. The issue occured before discovering MoKiChU's drivers. In fact that's how I found this forum and his drivers since I was looking for solutions. People in other forums told me it happened to them too for no reason (one guy even has 2 laptops with the same build and 1 has it the other 1 doesn't). It doesn't look like there's a solution but I keep asking just in case someone found one. I'll try out MoKiChU's newest. I think his drivers are still my best bet.

Thanks again!

Hi,

You were lucky that the drivers used by your notebook are in the motherboards drivers package, but beware that you are using the wrong thread/drivers package.

You have an ASUS TUF DTS Headphone:X v1 notebook, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS TUF DTS HPXv1 NB/DT) from the first post of this thread (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?118396-DRIVERS-Realtek-Audio-(NB-DT-Intel-2xx-3xx-4xx-amp-AMD-Ryzen-Mobile)).

Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

Hi MoKiChU,

I can't even say thank you enough! First off, for some reason it never occurred to me to look at the notebook thread because the TUF505DT was listed as a gaming laptop everywhere and I didn't even consider it a notebook. I'll follow that thread from now on. More importantly, however, your drivers worked amazingly! After a month of searching and being told there's no solution to the missing Realtek Audio Console options I was correct in thinking your drivers will help. DTS works fine (there was a quick DTS extension update from Windows' Update) AND I have all the Realtek options back. Clearly, something broke in the original drivers and yours fixed it. I did a few restarts to confirm since the Realtek Audio Console options would usually disappear on a restart.

Thanks again for fixing one of my biggest headaches in the past month!

Hello Mokichu and First of ALL THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS :-)

I have a ROG Maximus XI Hero Z390" Onboard-Sound and I can be wrong but the latest package I've downloaded a month or so ago was much bigger ~160 MB and now it's much smaller. It seems you split the packages and now I'm a bit confused about which one should I get and Install although I'm almost sure it's the first one " Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3 MB) : Drivers : 6.0.8996.1 WHQL [28/07/2020]" and then follow the old instructions by removing old drivers using Driver Explorer, etc. etc. and then after Driver installation and restart proceed with the installation of SS3 and SR3 (Optional) correct?

Please confirm before I do something wrong :-)

Hi MoKiChU, I was using the old driver with the same problem, I updated and continues the SS3 problem, when I open it for the first time it works, but when I open windows media player it closes by itself and every time I try to open SS3 it informs me of this error, realtek works perfectly but the SS3 doesn't work after listening to music, any suggestions?

I'm doing all the cleaning work properly always making sure that the a-volute was deleted from the system with the Driver Store, could it be a problem with the windows version?

Hi,

The probably root cause of your issue is in your question : if when you launch Windows Media Player, it causes the crash of SS3 APO (hence the TIMEOUT error message in SS3), try with another audio player (Microsoft built-in Groove Music, VLC or another) after restarting your PC.

It really works normal with Groove Music, will I have to abandon Windows Media Player or SS3, is there any way to fix it? Thank you.

Checking here also doesn't work with the latest version of VLC v3.0.11, only Groove Music works correctly.

I'm doing some tests, I think it's related to Microsoft Edge Chromium, I'll test more often and try to reach a more effective conclusion.

I still use the old WMP in Windows 10 and have never had any issue w/any of these newer Realtek drivers packaged up by MokiChu. If you have extra time, try following scrupulously the uninstall/cleanup process then installing the drivers for your mb from Asus web site. Would be interesting to see if no problem w/those old drivers.

But then you'll have to follow scrupulously the cleanup process again, in order to install the latest drivers here. However, at this point you're an expert in the uninstall/cleanup process, lol.

If you have extra time, try following scrupulously the uninstall/cleanup process then installing the drivers for your mb from Asus web site. Would be interesting to see if no problem w/those old drivers.

But then you'll have to follow scrupulously the cleanup process again, in order to install the latest drivers here. However, at this point you're an expert in the uninstall/cleanup process, lol.

I have no problems with uninstallation and cleaning, I always used MoKiChU drivers and I never had any problems, but after upgrading to 2004 and even with 1909 and recent drivers I started having these problems, I suspect the reason for the crash is the outdated SS3 or incompatible with WMP, MPCHC and Microsoft Edge Chromium, for some reason when the browser is open when I open SS3 only the browser appears in the list of applications and crashes, today at this moment I just did it for 3x in 4x the application shows me the same error that appears in the image I posted. I will post further, I will stop using Microsoft Edge Chromium for a few days to check this possibility.

Hi,

You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB) from the first post of this thread.

Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.



Hi,

You have an ASUS PRIME DTS Headphone:X v1 motherboard, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS PRIME/TUF DTS HPXv1 MB) from the first post of this thread.

Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

Thank you very much MoKiChU. I already installed it and it works perfect.

Hi MoKiChU! After suspecting and investigating the SS3 bug on my machine, I came to the conclusion that there was an incompatibility between EDGE Chromium and SS3, so I waited and found that it really is incompatible after two SS3 updates on my PC, so I share with you what I discovered, unfortunately I am not an expert in solving these types of incompatibilities.

In the following image it says: This application cannot be directed to another device. Due to its technical specifications.

WMP and MPCHC keeps crashing.

Not working here on my Asus ROG Strix Hero 3 laptop. Did the steps and it fixed my issue with Sonic Studio 3 however it also re-enabled the Nahimic drivers so stuff was slow af again. So disabled that service yet again and now Sonic Studio 3 doesn't launch. I'm confused?

Just wish to say thank you, since updating to Windows 2004 my realtek 5.1 front speakers were not working, I had to uninstall and use the Windows generic audio driver which was fine. Today I thought I would give your method a go and it worked, Realtek is back and all speakers reporting for duty in 5.1, thanks man!

Hi,

In addition, in order to fix your issue :

- Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process
- Use this SS3 Cleaner tool (https://mega.nz/file/IUVBjK4L#7SA60S3fbKgTMMm8057FCDR8Ayvt3nILp6Jy1zvxJ _o) (Right click on "A-Volute_SS3_Cleanup.exe" > Run as administrator) then restart your PC
- Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process

For the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.


Hello MoKiChU I always had this message popping up about Sonic software (Sonic Studio / Sonic Radar) that needs to update, but I always though that was an update from the Microsoft store, as those software are installed from there and not with your package.

I have the classic SS3 motherboard, and did a complete cleanup not too long ago as you told me to do it as you changed your installation package.
Everything is working perfectly, and since the cleanup I had this popup appearing only 1 time.

Do you suggest to do another cleanup, or is it just the Microsoft store updating, or what else?

Thank you in advance for your precious help! :cool:

Hi,

Whether for SS3 or SR3, when this type of popup message appears it means that an update of SS3/SR3 has just been done via the Microsoft Store and that the PC must be restarted to complete the update.

Using the SS3 Cleaner tool is only useful when this popup loops back while you are already up to date.

Ah, ok..perfectly understood.

So as in my case, when it appears, it never appears again in a while, and so I assume it really updates those software the proper way.

Thanks so much for the clarification.

Oh, I just realized that you changed the installation package again.
My last update was with the unique file AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG-PRIME-TUF_MB_v6.0.8975.1.7z

Should I do a clean install when installing the last dedicated SS3 version, or can I go with the simple Update?

Thanks in advance.

@ MOKICHU, I have the Asus Rog Strix E gaming x570 MB. Can I use your top drivers that say "Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3 MB) Drivers : 6.0.8996.1 WHQL [28/07/2020]" versus the second ones that say " Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB) : Drivers : 6.0.8984.1 WHQL [07/07/2020]" ?

I noticed the driver version is more recent on the top one (6.0.8996.1 vs. 6.0.8984.1).

Thanks
