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 everyone,

The Third Party DTSX Ultra/DTS SU Extension Driver have been updated.


Thread, post & drivers package updated.



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....

Hi,

You have an ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3 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.

Hi there!

Haven't updated in a while. Have updated to last ASUS ROG SS3 with success. Everything works good, and as I can notice, even better. Now my Sonic Studio 3 works better with better filters.
Still the Speaker Configuration in the Realtek Audio Console doesn't keep my settings, but it always happens, and as I know, there is no way to export/import Realtek Audio Console settings.

Thanks for everything!! 😉

Im having a real nightmare with the audio on my b550-e. Desktop and video volume is ok but gaming audio is terrible I have to apply the maximum amplification and extreme smart volume on sonic studio just to get acceptable volume (now my audio lacks direction and sounds fairly distorted)
Its almost like my volume is being limited by software. Ive tried these drivers, the windows drivers and now my current official drivers.
Ive tried fresh install bought new headphones tried various different windows tweaks but had no joy. *Im praying you have a solution for me mokichu as Im all out of ideas.

Headsets tried : sennheiser gsp 500 & Beyerdynamic dt 880.

Thanks

Ps can you advise the correct driver just in case I have done something wrong.*

Hi,

If the issue also occurs with the drivers from your motherboard support page and with the Microsoft built-in drivers, please open a ticket to your ASUS support.
