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).

What package should I install on Strix B550-F? I tried the first one, but Audio Console and many other components couldn't be installed. I had to use the old 8999 package from support page and it also installed DTS. But I don't see DTS anywhere in the system. I'm confused.

Hi,

ASUS made a mistake, the latest drivers package available on your support page (6.0.8971.1) is not for your motherboard but for ASUS PRIME/TUF DTS Custom motherboards.

You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard Gen1, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB) Gen1 or Gen2 (Recommended) 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.

Hiya, I followed these steps for my ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING and I got no sound output, had to uninstall to get it back. What could have gone wrong? Thanks

Hi,

Always check the 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, check that Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer is disabled (if it is enabled, it takes over by default on your playbak/recording devices) via :

- 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 > Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer : Right click on it > Disable device


If after that you still haven't fixed the issue, send me by PM an .csv extract of all your DriverStore via Driver Store Explorer (File > Export).

@ Everyone : Please to those for whom it works to come forward, there is way too much negative feedback and almost no positive feedback (other than to say thank you), if the people who are complaining outnumber those who are satisfied, I don't see why to continue to release.

@ Those who complain of BSOD of all kinds or whatever else : I don't design/build the drivers, there is no point in telling me about your issues at each release unless it concerns the drivers installation or the packaging thereof. If you have issue, use the drivers packages from your product support page.

Hi MoKiChU,

OK, got it. Your installer works perfectly. Thank you supporting us with latest drivers.

Greetings

Burns

If the drivers work fine, people likely won't say anything 😛 I believe it's largely like that with anything. Like with video games, people who are happy are going to be playing the game, whereas people who aren't happy will be on the forums complaining or review-bombing.

ASUS doesn't make it easy to sign-up on their forum or to even post either. Had to wait a day or two for my account to be manually activated, and Google captcha for every post is annoying to deal with since it wants to intentionally fail the first two tries. If I hadn't wanted to ask which driver to be using for my motherboard, I wouldn't have an account on these forums or be providing feedback.

But in my case, I enjoy these drivers; they're provided in a nice lightweight package, and seemingly are more up-to-date than any other source I know of. Thanks for providing them!

Thanks @MoKiChU

Can you or someone else help me with a quick question please?

Is this normal? I mean, Audio drivers in Device Manager under Audio inputs and outputs and also under Sound, video and game controllers?


Audio inputs and outputs shows Microsoft Drivers

86497

Sound, video and game controllers Shows the newest Realtek drivers

86498


Last but not least the other question I have is:

I have a Razer Leviathan 5.1 Soundbar which I'm using since I bought it connected through an Optical Cable. Because of a small sound delay (e.g. when I click on any file that produces a sound or start playing an mp3 file there is a very small annoying delay until I hear the sound/music which is probably less than 1 sec but still annoying) I start researching what could be the cause of the issue and I then noticed that in my Device Manager besides the Realtek Audio Driver (under Sound Video and Game Controllers) I also have a Realtek Digital Output driver under Audio Inputs and Outputs. While the Realtek Audio Drivers shows the latest version (6.0.9013.1 WHQL) installed, the Realtek Digital Output shows the version 10.0.18362.1 provided by Microsoft from 2019. I tried to change from Optical to Aux and while the delay isn't happening anymore another issue shows up which is when I turn off my computer the Razer Leviathan starts making a humming noise which will end if I turn off the Razer (Already tried to change the Outlet where the Razer is plugged without success).

My question is what would be the general recommendation to connect my Razer Leviathan? Optical, Aux, or Bluetooth which is also a possibility?

Thanks in Advance,

Hi,

All the devices listed in "Audio inputs and outputs" are system devices, using system drivers which are not meant to be updated (whose version corresponds to the version of the system, Windows 10 1903/19H1/18362.x in your case).

Regarding the use of your equipment, I cannot really advise you, but :

- Be aware that the Sonic Studio III effects cannot be applied to the Digital/Optical/SPDIF output.
- Take into account this recommendation that I made to someone else regarding 3.5 jack output : https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?117596-DRIVERS-Realtek-Audio-(MB-Intel-2xx-3xx-4xx-amp-AMD....
