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 wrote to Asus support & Microsoft support about the NahimicService.exe and A-volute crash errors
I explain to them the SS3 Not the main problem
the issue from Nahimic Service in Services manager in windows 10 is problem
I do not understand why this behavior by them not to respond
Please write to them maybe understand to you
** Sorry for the English language


A Volute and Nahimic was sold to SteelSeries. these issue is not new. these has come since 1903. There is a reason for these and is not my place. there are people more intelligent to explain these on app level. But we will have to adapt. and I am gratefully that i have audio.

Now, i can be wrong. but since these 2020 is the start of UWP applications push by MS. some new changes are in. I check why the issue and is my Razer Seiren Elite. is working fine but SS3 do not like it. I will plug the other one i have tomorrow that is the beyerdynamic FOX and test. Since I am doing something new now, i can not test all scenarios. need to be ready for June 27 but i will test all sides since i like my music nice.

These 2 apps are not push by MS anymore. but are needed and is need on all Realtek OEM board
Learn, Play Enjoy!

Hi mokichu, first of all thank you for coming back, this community really appreciate what you're doing!

Now I did the full process two times just this morning, uninstalled sonic studio and realtek UAD apps, restarted, deleted these 9 drivers https://i.imgur.com/HEZjZj8.png, Ran SS3 cleanup - it showed it hasnt found the nahimic drivers, restarted again, and ran Install_ROG_SS3.cmd for ( Should be correct for Z370-e) as admin, after restart - same issue occurs. I would rather just use clean drivers, but my speakers require the volume boost i get from Sonic Studio.

Edit: Actually after reinstalling Sonic Studio 3 app from the windows store again solved the issue, thank you for the suggestion!

Not working here on my Asus ROG Strix Hero 3 laptop. Did the steps and it fixed my issue with Sonic Studio 3 however it also re-enabled the Nahimic drivers so stuff was slow af again. So disabled that service yet again and now Sonic Studio 3 doesn't launch. I'm confused?

Hello MoKiChU I always had this message popping up about Sonic software (Sonic Studio / Sonic Radar) that needs to update, but I always though that was an update from the Microsoft store, as those software are installed from there and not with your package.

I have the classic SS3 motherboard, and did a complete cleanup not too long ago as you told me to do it as you changed your installation package.
Everything is working perfectly, and since the cleanup I had this popup appearing only 1 time.

Do you suggest to do another cleanup, or is it just the Microsoft store updating, or what else?

Thank you in advance for your precious help! :cool:

Hi,

Whether for SS3 or SR3, when this type of popup message appears it means that an update of SS3/SR3 has just been done via the Microsoft Store and that the PC must be restarted to complete the update.

Using the SS3 Cleaner tool is only useful when this popup loops back while you are already up to date.

Ah, ok..perfectly understood.

So as in my case, when it appears, it never appears again in a while, and so I assume it really updates those software the proper way.

Thanks so much for the clarification.
