OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).

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 (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 (Right click on "MSI_Mode_Utility_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
Disable hibernation (Fast Startup included).

Also, an unrelated issue - in a 2 speaker setup (connected to the green connector) when I do the left/right channel test in Realtek Audio Console, I hear both channels through both speakers, even though a YouTube audio test (and a Windows control panel audio test) seem fine.

Firstly thanks MoKiChU for all your efforts!

I just did a full reinstall. Nothing was wrong, I was just 6-12 months out of date so I wanted to update.

Everything worked fine except one thing. When I click on "Install" for "Sonic Studio 3" at https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9n81c41dq5sj, the Microsoft Store app opens on my PC, but the "Install" button does not do anything. I click it, but literally nothing happens and the app is not queued or downloaded.

I can install other apps fine (including DTS Sound Unbound and Sonic Radar III) but Sonic Studio 3 will not install.

The "Sonic Suite Companion" takes me to the same place but still nothing happens.

A reboot does not fix this.

Also a "wsreset" did not help.

Hi,

If your issue occurring with drivers from your motherboard support page (and therefore that it is not specific to the drivers that I propose) : Open a ticket with ASUS Support.

Hi,

SS3 Companion has been set up by A-Volute to check/update your version of SS3 app & SS3 APO driver.

For people who follow me, this tool is useless, you can disable the launch of the SS3 Companion on Windows startup via SS3 Companion GUI, but for people who do not follow me, it allows them to have their SS3 app & SS3 APO driver up to date.


Thanks.

Is there a way to remove/clear the app list in SS3?
Why doesn't chrome show up there?

Hey everyone, does anyone know how to reset the application manager list in SS3. I have tried resetting the app and reinstalling it but that still does not reset the list. Whay i would like to reset the list is because some apps don't appear on the list (new ones not showing up, while some existing ones are hidden yet profiles are being applied which i obviously can't change). Doe s any one here has a solution for this, i don't believe it is linked to the driver as i have used multiple drivers and nothing has resolved the issue.


Hi,

- Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process
- Use this SS3 Cleaner tool (Right click on "A-Volute_SS3_Cleanup.exe" > Run as administrator) then restart your PC
- Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process

Note : If some apps (like Google Chrome for example) are not visible in the advanced mode, it is because they have been blacklisted by A-Volute because they are not supported by the advanced mode.

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


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 TUF DTS Custom motherboard.

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?

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.

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.
