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).

Hey there, thanks for all the updates.

Riot Vanguard (Valorant) flags Avolute SS3 , is there any way to avoid this?

I didnt have this problem back in the day / Latest windows 11, all updated.

Cheers!

Hi,

It seems to be the case since an Vanguard update from Riot this week, you have to report this to Riot and/or ASUS (by contacting ASUS Support and/or open a thread here : ROG Care - Hardware & Software Support) so that they forward to A-Volute/Steelseries so that they works with Riot to fix this.

In the meantime, as workaround follow this process :

- Press Windows key + X > "Device Manager" > "Sound, video and game controllers" category
- Disable your Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer device by right-click Disable device then restart your PC

Thanks MoKiChU!

Reinstalled Windows a week ago and got around that A-Volute/Sonic Studio malware with those drivers ❤️ (never installed the armoury crate on purpose, too)
They work like a charm and i have no useless gamebreaking virtual sound device anymore on my Crosshair VIII Dark Hero 🙂

I only have the issue, that i can't download the Realtek console from the Windows store anymore, and according to the last reviews there, i'm not the only one.
It seems to be delisted, too.

Is there any standalone version one can use?
I found a few results using google, but some of them seem to be shady or not a recent version.

Thank you!

Good day MoKiChU, thank you for the release package.

Hello,I am new here...I found this thread by searching for Sonic suite issues...

I'm currently using an Asus Maximus ROG Code XI with an I9-9900KF and when I try to open Sonic Studio 3 I get this error " The current system is not supported, or the audio driver has not been properly installed. TIMEOUT" I've downloaded the drivers from asus's website it worked for a ~1 month after a clean install and now this. I've updated my MB bios to the last,I have audio but Sonic Studio isn't working I like using it....

Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated.

Have lovely day/night.

Hello,

I have an "Asus TUF GAMING Z790-PLUS WIFI" motherboard. What are the correct drivers to use?

I assume it's the  "UAD - ASUS TUF/PRIME DTS AP" version, after comparing files with the original drivers on the Asus website.

Regards

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 the 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.

Thank you for your reply!

I did a fresh install of Windows 11 on my ASUS Dark Hero board and installed the latest AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG_SS3-DTS_v6.0.9492.1 driver package according to the instruction.

When I download the DTS Unbound App from the store, it's not licensed. Is this a known problem, should I install the original drivers from the ASUS page first?

@MoKiChU Thanks, using the wrong driver, no wonder it didn't work. Now DTS Unbound is licensed, only the Realtek Audio Control is missing now 🙂 But that's no problem and maybe it gets installed with some updates.
