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,
I have tried your method but unfortunately it doesn't work.
I've been very rigorous with the steps, uninstalled/installed everything you've mentioned to the letter. I've also tried doing it all over again just to make sure I didn't miss anything the first time.
No Realtek software (Audio Console or Control) was installed automatically so I've installed it from the store. The app won't open, telling me it cannot connect to RPC service. Similarly, Sonic Studio III won't open ("The current system is not supported, or the audio driver has not been properly installed. - TIMEOUT")
I'm on an ROG Maximus Z790 Hero. What should I do to make this all work? Thanks.

Edit: maybe it's useful information for your future updates but I've finally got it to work by performing your uninstall steps then downloading and installing this package from the Asus Support site for my motherboard: DRV_Audio_RTK_USB_CNT_DTSP_TP_W11_64_V6396002342_20221013R.zip - now Realtek Audio Console, Sonic Studio III and DTS all work, the sounds is great and I have no pops, screeches or any other artifacts.

Edit 2: Just discovered that Sonic Studio III still fails to open occasionally and displays the same error message as before. Any ideas?

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
- 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


For the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

Thanks for the reply. I see what you are saying. I went to https://www.jensign.com/bdp95/7dot1voiced/index.html and he has a 7.1 PCM file that I tested and it does play through all the channels. Unfortunately my Onkyo receiver is too old to accept audio over HDMI so I am stuck going this route. Is there any software or setting that will make my PC convert all audio to 7.1 PCM before sending it to the receiver?


Only SS3 can upmix all audio content to 7.1 PCM but SS3 need SS3 licence & SS3 hardware APO which are only built-in with ASUS ROG motherboards.

However, instead of upmixing the sound on the source side, you can mostly upmix on the Onkyo receiver side even if your receiver is old and doesn't support the latest standards via HDMI, it should still be able to upmix Stereo PCM in multichannel on its side (just plug in Stereo, and not in 5.1/7.1, via 3.5mm jack or SPDIF and configure Realtek Audio Control/Windows accordingly in Stereo) by switching the Stereo mode of your receiver to a Dolby/DTS multichannel upmix profile according to the possibilities of your receiver (if you are in multichannel mode as is currently the case, it will not offer you an upmix, you need to switch to your Stereo mode).

Makes sense. I wonder why they would even have these ports included on the motherboard and instructions stating this will give you 7.1 when almost everything media wise on the computer will not be PCM. Hopefully I can return all these cables I bought. Sorry for the rant!

When you say:

- Go in "Apps" folder > Install your apps from the Microsoft Store shortcuts :

Realtek Audio Control/Console + Sonic Studio III & Sonic Radar III (Optional)

Do you mean this entire section of installing the apps is optional or that Realtek Audio Control/Console is required and Sonic Studio III & Sonic Radar III is optional?

Hi,

Only Sonic Radar III is optional. However, you posted in the wrong thread.

Hi everyone,

As reminder, you can determine for yourself which drivers package does your motherboard need thanks to these indications :

First, the hardware requirements, in order to be in the right thread :

[DRIVERS] Realtek USB Audio (Intel 5xx/6xx/7xx & AMD 5xx/6xx/TRX40)
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG motherboards with Intel 5xx/6xx/7xx series chipsets with ALC408x codec.
Hardware requirements (AMD - AM4/AM5) : ASUS ROG motherboards with AMD 5xx/6xx series chipsets with ALC408x codec.
Hardware requirements (AMD - sTRX4) : ASUS ROG/PRIME motherboards with AMD TRX40 chipset.


[DRIVERS] Realtek Audio (Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx & AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx)
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC408x).
Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC408x).


[DRIVERS] Realtek Audio (Intel 6x/7x/8x/9x/1xx & AMD Legacy 6xx/7xx/8xx/9xx)
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 6x/7x/8x/9x/1xx series chipsets.
Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD Legacy 6xx/7xx/8xx/9xx series chipsets.


Second, the drivers package type :
Note : In order to know which drivers package to use, match the audio specifications of your motherboard with the apps or ask me.

So, if in your motherboards specs you see the words :

- Sonic Studio I : You have an ASUS ROG SS1 motherboard
- Sonic Studio II : You have an ASUS ROG SS2 motherboard
- Sonic Studio III : You have an ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard
- Sonic Studio III & DTS Sound Unbound : You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard
