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).

After years i`m back to ASUS. I own a b650-A gaming.

The soundchip is an ALC 4080 and i`m confused. I want to use the equalizer from realtek and nothing from the sonic crapware.
But only on SPDIF tab the equalizer is shown not on the speaker tab. OS is windows 11.

How can i fix it?


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).

Regarding your question, it is by design, it's intended to work like this at least for ASUS products : If third party drivers/app are built-in, the equalization is done via the third party drivers/app (SS3 drivers/app in your case).

 

@ Everyone : I remind you that I don't work for ASUS (everything I do for the ASUS ROG community is out of passion, on a voluntary basis) and it is Realtek at the request of ASUS that determines your motherboards features, not me nor the audio drivers that I offer. If you would like to know more about your motherboard features, please contact ASUS Support.

Thanks for answering. ASUS is also doing useless ASUS things again. The equalizer from sonic studio is crap. I need small steps like 0.4 or 1.3. In sonic only 1 or 2 and so on is given.

Mhhh maybe it was the wrong idea to give another chance on ASUS.

I'm a little confused, which one is installed for a Tuf B660-Plus? I had it installed, but I formatted it and I can't install it again. By the way, does sonic studio work with this card?

Hi,

You have an ASUS TUF DTS Audio Processing motherboard, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS TUF/PRIME DTS AP) from the first post of this thread.

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.

No, SS3 need SS3 licence & SS3 hardware APO which are only built-in with ASUS ROG motherboards.

Thank you for helping me and being so quick. I really like my sonic studio on the z370-f, the sound from my new tuf b660 plus doesn't sound good with dts alone using my hyperx. Can you recommend me a good sound card?

Hi,

You tried to use/install an audio drivers package type that is not for your motherboard type (you cannot choose a drivers package type, each drivers package type is dedicated to each motherboards type).

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

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS) from the first post of this thread.

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.

I tried AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG_SS3-DTS_v6.0.9514.1 driver but still no sound. Notice that there are crack sound with speaker when install driver and when windows booting at ROG logo.

Any suggestion? my sound system worked well yesterday 😞

Is it related to bios or Intel ME? I flashed them after lost sound

Hi.
I have an ROG Strix X570-E gaming mobo. I just can't get the drivers to work. If I remove everything and just let Windows install basic drivers, the audio works. But as soon as I try installing proper drivers no sound comes out of my speakers at all. I can see the audio meters go up and dow with the sounds but nothing from the speakers. I've done everything exactly as it is in your steps (ROG SS3, not sure if it's the correct one) twice and one attempt for ROG/PRIME/TUF and nothing works. I am at a loss. Can you help? Thanks.

Hi,

In order to choose correctly the install/update process to use : You have a ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard.

Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

MR. M,

I have a question.

What are the differences of the realtek drivers, UAD and HDA?

Thank you in advance.


Hi,

HDA Drivers are for Windows 7 & Windows 10 1709/RS3/16299.x or more recent
UAD Drivers are only for Windows 10 64 bit 1709/RS3/16299.x or more recent (1903/19H1/18362.x or more recent for some Third Party drivers)

HDA Drivers use Win32/Legacy apps (including Realtek HD Audio Manager)
UAD Drivers use UWP apps downloaded from Microsoft Store (including Realtek Audio Control/Console)

HDA Drivers have a tray icon (possibility to disable it)
UAD Drivers don't have a tray icon (without possibility to enable it)


Glossary :

HDA = High Definition Audio
HDA (Realtek) = Standard (NVIDIA) = Legacy (Microsoft, Intel)

UAD = Universal Audio Driver
UAD (Realtek) = DCH (NVIDIA & Intel, Microsoft now) = DCHU (Microsoft before) = UWD (Microsoft & Intel before)

DCH/DCHU = Declarative Componentized Hardware Support Apps Universal API compliance

UWD = Universal Windows Driver.
