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).

Another great update, thank you MoKiChU

After one of the latest updates there's a process "asusns.exe" starting at every Windows start.
It looks somehow connected to Sonic Studio, it's located in %LOCALAPPDATA% and in its folder there's the following files: a_heartbeat, a_queue, asusns.exe, NhNotifSys.dll.
I tried to remove it but it came back, now I've tried to remove the registry key that contained "asusns.exe", it was somewhere in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.

I do not use neither of the Sonic applications so I didn't install any of them, I only installed Realtek Audio Console.
Was it safe to remove that and how to may be exclude it from the installation at all?

P.S. Using the UAD - ASUS ROG SS3 MB version as my motherboard supports SS3.

Thank you MoKiChU for your hard work and updates and not just audio drivers. STAY WELL!

Just want to make a post appreciating Mokichu. An actual god send and the hero of ASUS drivers. This dude actually doing the company a huge favor by supporting mobos like this. Thank you Moki for the continued support. 😄

Sorry if this is a noob question but are these drivers for people who just want the realtek driver and not the bundled bloatware of sonic studio/radar?

What drivers should I get for the Crosshair X570 Dark Hero?

Hi which should I use for Strix B550-F GAMING please?
I tried Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB) and I don't get any audio unless I uninstall again

Thanks

Thx for your effort and dedication, but I think the whole Windows Universal Driver **** doesnt work well with each update from store or windows drivers update ( which I've already disabled ), but still Nahimic component and A-Volute are kept being updated ...

I think Asus should reconsider working with Nahimic to provide the whole package for Extra Sound settings ... Coz nahimic 2, followed by 3 on Unified era is working well for ages from the start of Win10 Unified Driver ( it had it's bug, but it was fixed VERY QUICKLY ! And the same bug never appeared again. had a MSi board with ALC 1220 ), I understand SupremeFX is their own implementation of the ALC1220 codec but the sofware part sucks ?


For now, I can live with the basic Realtek Audio Control ...


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.

/!\ Note /!\


Before doing anything, check that you meet the OS requirements at the bottom of all my threads :

OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit 1803/RS4/17134.x or more recent (20xx/VB/1904x.x or more recent for some Third Party drivers).

If you meet the OS requirements :

- 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.

- Verify that Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer is disabled :

- If you have installed Sonic Studio III : Sonic Studio III > Record Studio > Virtual Mixer > Virtual Mixer : Off

- If you haven't installed Sonic Studio III : Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > Right-click the Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer device and select Disable

Seconds after posting the MS Store installed RealTek Audio Control.

Working Great, thank you for your awesome work.

Did the uninstalls, reboot, cleanup INF, reboot, reinstall with your batch in admin, reboot, disabling Sonic Virtual Mixer and finally, installing with MS Store

Still the same old problem : Sonic Studio 3 "timeout" bug, some ppl fixed by running some service again, I'll try that ...

THank you for your response, after following the steps again ensuring that virtual mixer is disabled I am still experiencing no sound output via onboard sound following these steps.
