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).

So (a quick reminder for new here : I don't work for ASUS and I don't replace ASUS Support team), this is how my audio drivers threads works :

- If you have an issue with drivers from this thread : Follow your CLEANUP process then install the drivers from your motherboard support page.
- If you have an issue with drivers from your motherboard support page or if you have questions regarding the use of your audio stuff : Open a ticket with ASUS Support (and/or you can post in ROG Care - Hardware & Software Support section).


OK, thank you for the answer and your work.

In the end, I was able to solve the problem by trial and error.

I installed the drivers from the support site, then installed Realtek Audio Consoli and DTS Custom from MS Store. Then I restarted my system and uninstalled DTS Custom. After that, the equalizer appeared in the Realtek Audio panel and muffled sound disappear. So, looks like Windows Update mess up something with DTS Custom.

Hi,

This is intended to work like this for all audio drivers package type using a third party drivers/apps (SS3, DTS ...) : If third party app is installed, the equalization is done via third party app, if third party app is not installed, the equalization is done via Realtek Audio Control/Console app.

I have a Asus ROG Strix z590a wifi board. I installed the Realtek audio drivers for the board. I cannot use a 3.5mm in front panel nor back panel. I dont even see a line in or line out in sound settings in windows. All my usb headphones work fine. Am I missing something? Should I be installing something else. I do see the realtek hd audio driver installed in add remove programs list.

If none of this works then that is because there is no Realtek driver for it. The driver from the support page only shows the USB driver. Get ahold of customer support and ask them why that is.

Ok. So I have removed the High Definition Audio Device which is the only one in the device manager that is generic that doesnt say nvidia etc. Also, could the nvidia audio drivers cause a issue or conflict? Anyway, I have removed the usb driver or uninstalled it from control panel, I will attach pic. After removing that, I uninstalled sonic studio and radar along with realtek audio console (apps). Realtek audio console wont connect to the rpc service because there is NO UAD driver is what im reading and being told.

I then cleaned everything out with driver explorer. rebooted, installed the package you gave me and I have tried the asus website package which Im attaching a pic of. I have even tried the other package Mokichi posted on the other thread for this motherboard.

To be clear, the audio of the motherboard is working. I use a corsair headset for gaming anyway. I have a corsair ST100 headset holder plugged into the motherboard via usb, then my void pro headset plugs into the holder via usb. So the usb audio has worked out of the box. Of course that could just be standard usb working period.

Ill attach a pic of the ONLY playback devices I am forced to use or that are options. One is my headset, the other is the headset stand, the other is my samsung g7 faker. I have also been asked if my device was enabled in the bios. I have looked and the only thing to enable or disable as far as audio in the bios is the usb audio. Not sure if I disable the usb audio, would I get the front panel HD audio option or the rear panel.

I should have the option of a Realtek high defintion audio device in game controllers in device manager, and I should have something with realtek on it in the bottom right of windows under sounds. I should also see in the control panel of windows a realtek audio console or speakers etc to choose. Sonic radar nor studio wont load and gives me a error because it doesnt see a driver to use. that has been problem since day one. Like you said, is the UAD driver actually packaged or only the USB driver? but I have used your download you just gave me and the one from here:https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?118522-DRIVERS-Realtek-USB-Audio-(MB-Intel-5xx-amp-AMD-TRX...

the drivers you have me did install, but still nothing. PICS:

Right click "High Definition Audio Device" in Device Manager and choose to update it. In the next window, choose the second option. In the next window, Choose the bottom option that will allow you to choose from a list. In the next windows, uncheck the box that says "Show compatible devices". Now, search for Realtek on the left and click on it. Then in the main window on the right, choose "Realtek Hight definition audio device". Then click "Next" and answer yes or OK to the warnings. Does it work?

If it doesn't work then disconnect all other audio devices (Not the Nvidia devices), Uninstall all other audio software from Corsair and all other software and drivers related to audio that you have plug in. Unplug all audio related devices. Use Device driver explorer and delete all Realtek. Reboot and install the Realtek drivers first and see if it works. Don't plug-in or install anything else but Realtek related drivers and software. If that doesn't work then RMA your motherboard.

No tried that yesterday. Forced the driver onto that device which is intel. It crashed windows. Had to finally restore just to get back into windows. A new board is on the way.

Like I said, RMA your motherboard. It looks like you tried everything under the sun. So, all you can do is RMA your motherboard.

Anyway, I hope you enabled all audio in the BIOS. I would not be happy with myself if I forgot to enable audio in the BIOS....lol

I have looked numerous times in this bios, but I have only found the usb audio to enable or disable. If you know where the onboard audio is or anyone else does, by all means let me know. I have been in there three times and looked everywhere.
