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 everyone, I installed the newest drivers (6.0.9250.1) for my motherboard (Maximus X Hero (wifi) and am missing the Realtek audio Console. I followed Mokichu's installation guide to the letter for a clean installation. I figured it may take a second for the Windows Store to download it but its been a day and am unable to find it anywhere on my computer whereas previously it would come right up when typing 'realtek' into my start menu. Any steps I can take to force it to download?

EDIT: I was able to find a store link through Google that let me download the UWP Realtek Audio Console. It now works great.

Hi MoKiChU,
thank you supporting us. Done this as described above. For now everything is working fine. I cant find any DTS APO device in device manager. Is this the major change? My mb is a Strix B550-F.


Hi,

Correct, Realtek has made a major architecture change of the SS3-DTS drivers type, which causes that DTS APO4x SWC devices/drivers are no longer used with the new Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB) architecture.

Note : You cannot choose your drivers package, each drivers package is dedicated to a specific motherboard type. If you're not using DTS Sound Unbound, just don't install it.

Thanks for the update.
But is there an inf missing? One of the realtek driver infs?
There were always 2 driver infs for the realtek audio device.
One was used, it seems like...
Now, there is only the used inf included and I had to force update few the other inf through the device manager.

Hi MoKiChU,

You have always been awesome and a great help on these forums helping and going your way to assit people Thank you so much. I have a issue i have a z390 e mobo and I downloaded the correct drivers but now i get randomly when i try to open Sonic studio 3 the following error message: "The current system is not support, or the audio driver has not been properly installed", sometimes it works fine no issues but majority of the time i am greated with this error. I have re installed the OS, fully wiped the drive, (I am on windows 11 all updated) as i originally installed the os via a update and I thought maybe that method may have caused something, after a fresh install I followed ur instructions and still nothing, I have re installed the os 3 addtional times all clean installs fully wiping the drive to try different means of getting ss3 working but no avail, please can you help me i see 4 other people with the same issue, one member stated ss3 was updated in ms store, maybe a conflict somewhere, any help would be awesome thank you
