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).

I swear MoKiChU, one can see that you really have fun hunting down the newest driver components and updating your driver pack installers:D

I have problems that every time i reconnect 3.5mm headphone, sound is a bit different. Sometimes is distorted badly so i need to reconnect headphone to fix it. Is it hardware problem or it could be sonic studio 3 or other software making problems? I heard from various forums that sonic studio is problematic.

i use rear jack with 3.5mm extension cable. Motherboard is crosshair viii hero so quality shouldn't be issue.


Hi,

When you plug (unplug then plug if already plugged) the jack 3.5 mm of a headphone, the automatic impedance detection will automatically choose the appropriate level of amplification for you (depending on the impedance of the headphone). However, if you use an jack extension cable, this detection will not be done if you unplug then plug your headphone at the female jack extension cable level. For the automatic impedance detection to take place, the disconnection & reconnection must be done at the jack motherboard level.

I always do that, but impedance detection sometimes detect 90 ohms, sometimes 30 so sound is little different, what could be problem?

This is something I was wondering about and tried manually in SS3's files, but failed.

I tried to rep you MoKiChU, but it seems I need to spread the love a bit more, but thanks for posting the ss3 cleanup tool, and I've added it to my Excel downloads sheet, I just need to update my Sway with the above instruction and linking to the cleanup tool.

Hi,

You're welcome 😉

A note for others using it, if you just run it strait, it nukes your current in use Realtek install too ...


This is not the way the tool should be used, as I said previously, the use of the tool must be preceded by a CLEANUP process (which anyway will cleanup all your Realtek Audio & Third Party Drivers).

Which one's do I download if I have a Maximus XII Extreme?


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.

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.

Followed your instructions and it worked perfectly! Thank you 😮

I edited my post while you were responding to mine MoKiChU. Sorry about that. So apparently I installed the incorrect version for my MB last time since my file is listed as the AsusTuff/DTS version. I guess I've got to wipe that one with the cleaner tool. Thanks for that info. But why did it work so long, many months I estimate, without an issue? Was it because SS3 updated itself recently?

OK, everything is working great now. Between the App Uninstalls, Driver Store Explorer .inf purging and the Cleanup Tool, all the Realtek and Nahimic remnants were removed from my system. Several reboots and installs later, thank you very much MoKiChU! You're a hair saver. I gather whenever MS updates SS3 behind my back in the future, I need to start looking for a newer Realtek driver if SS3 throws a fit. What a PITA. Also, what in the heck is wrong with Microsoft? For entertainment's sake, I opened the MS Store app from the Start Menu to see if I could find those 2 apps since they didn't auto-install. Did a search for both the Realtek Audio Console and Sonic Studio 3. Nothing, bupkiss, NADA. Then I used your handy links for finding them in the MS Store via a browser and viola!, there they are as plain as the nose on Microsquish's face. What a bunch of morons at Microsoft and thank you for providing the links to find both of those because MS is no help whatsoever.

Update: After shutting down my PC the sound has returned to normal both a lot more detailed than before, now it's a real pleasure to experience the richness of sound, guessing it must have been some isolated case...

I wouldn't have a problem going along with that if the previous direct from Asus Realtek drives caused the same message on every boot. My account is already set as admin and account control settings is switched to never notify so I shouldn't be seeing a message like this anyway asking about trusting the software.


As I explained to you previously, you are the only one to report this kind of issue (moreover you obviously do not have the issue on your OS/Software config based on your Z390 motherboard), so, I deduce that your issue is specific to your OS/Software config case and is not related to the drivers package.

The logic to have is :

- If you have an issue with the drivers package from your motherboard support page (or just want to be up to date) > CLEANUP + INSTALL process to install/use the drivers package from this thread.
- If you have an issue with the drivers package from this thread > CLEANUP process then install/use the drivers package from your motherboard support page.
- If you have an issue in both cases > Open a ticket with ASUS Support.
