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).

Hi,

You are in the wrong thread.

You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard with ALC408x codec, so :

You need Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS) from the first post of this thread : [DRIVERS] Realtek USB Audio (Intel 5xx/6xx/7xx & AMD 5xx/6xx/TRX40).

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.

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 !

SAME its ****** rediculous

So that's what that muffled sound was yesterday. Disabled "audio enhancements" on my optical out and boom, back to normal sound.

Just know that unchecking this setting no longer allows you to use SS3&SR3 (if you used it).

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.


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).

- Download this patch (SSVM Remover Patch) : Link
- 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.

How can I get the base drivers installed, with none of the extras? (Nahimic, Soncic Studio, etc.) I currently have the base Windows driver, and nothing else. I always hate having all the extras.
