    I mean a reboot without doing anything solves the issue. But only for a few minutes. The crashes occur within like 5-10 minutes.

    I decided to try the integrated audio chip on my new build/upgrade (mobo, cpu and ram) and I used Mokichu's drivers on a clean install instead of the official ones. I ran into the timeout issue when going into advanced mode for the first time and the only thing that can make Sonic Studio work was to go into windows settings - applications, then selecting sonic studio and reset its data from there.

    After cleaning those drivers and installing the latest from Asus site, the same issue appears. After more digging I found out that a service called Nahimic Service is set to start automatically but it doesn't start. Manually starting it from Windows services console fixes the issue so far.

    So, it's related to this service not being able to start properly and it is required for sonic studio's advance mode. Why all this complexity and hassle in something that should be straighforward is baffling. I'll probably end up reinstalling my old but great sounding and still kicking Sound Blaster Zx so I can have Dolby Digital and DTS encoding via SPDIF anyway but wanted to give the latest audio chip and software a try out of curioisity.

    Solution - USE DDU

    Download the latest Audio driver from Asus Support->Extract the folder and have it ready.

    Download and install the third party app DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller).

    Right click on Windows Start and select run->Type msconfig-> Hit enter->Go to boot-> tick safe-mode->OK. Restart in safe mode. (If you're using Bitlocker suspend protection on the drive running Windows first before doing this)

    In safe-mode login->Right click on Windows Start and select run->Type msconfig-> Hit enter->Go to boot-> untick safe-mode->OK->Exit without restarting

    Run DDU->Set DDU to prevent windows from automatically downloading and install drivers in the options.

    Set DDU to uninstall Audio and select the Realtek device.

    Clean and restart->Log into Windows->

    If you load device manager you can view the drivers being installed should you wish.

    Install the Realtek driver downloaded from Asus Support using the Asus setup.exe in the driver folder. Wait patiently until this is completed.

    Run Sonic Suit Companion and update Sonic Studio and Audio Driver (SWC)

    Load DDU and set Windows Device Installation Settings to default.

    Run Windows Update and update the optional drivers.

    Following these steps fixed this problem with the ROG CROSSHAIR VIII DARK HERO

    You can use the same steps for updating your graphics card should you have issues or wish to have a clean install or the latest driver.

    In the past I performed a clean install of Windows to resolve this issue. This time I wasn't up for doing that or restoring back to an earlier state. This should be helpful for anyone else experiencing the same issue. Thank you DDU!

    same problem with asus rampage VI extrema for 2 years it has always the same problem with sonic studio sometimes it only works for 5 minutes and then it crashes I called the asus support several times and they say that the fault and of the app I do not understand why they do the collaboration when the asus support does not even know the problems in the end it does not interest me anymore, I just know that if it continues like this I will no longer enter asus rog series in my bugets
    and even today none of the asus technicians can give an answer to these crashes

    Disable A-Volute

    I've had issues with Sonic Studio as well! It was causing some 3D apps & Rocket League to freeze up. So I uninstalled the Sonic Studio app, but the problem persisted. So I've also disabled the "A-Volute Nh3 Audio Effects Component" in Device Manager > Software Components, plus, deleted all the "Nahimic" files in C:/Windows/System32 folder. Since doing this the issue has stopped. Although I suspect the files will reinstall with the next Windows update
