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,

You are in the wrong thread and you tried to install an incorrect drivers package for your motherboard.

You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard with ALC408x codec, so :

You need Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS) from the first post of this thread : [DRIVERS] Realtek USB Audio (Intel 5xx/6xx/7xx & AMD 5xx/6xx/TRX40).

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.



Thanks for yout answer MoKiChU, I will try the correct drivers of your package !

Hi MoKiChU

Really appriciate all your time and effort on these driver updates and install support, not sure if I've stumbled on an issue or quirk but I find using Displayport to my monitor can often give crackles and pops through it's built in speakers, but switching my monitor cable over to HDM1 2.0 resolves this.
Driver changes do not seem to improve, sticking with HDMI currently 🙂


Hi,

Note that when you use an audio stream via HDMI or via DisplayPort, you do not go through your Realtek audio chipset from your motherboard (and Realtek audio drivers for your motherboard) but through your audio chipset from your graphics card (via the NVIDIA High Definition Audio device in your case), even if you have SS3 and you are applying the effects of SS3 to your HDMI/DiplayPort audio streams. So an update of the drivers that I propose here will not solve your issue in any way. Rather, look for the release of new NVIDIA audio drivers. However you can use these 2 tips to improve or fix your issue.

Hi

Thanks for the quick reply, monitor only used when it's late, Logitech Z906 during daytime 😄

Was curious as to if this monitor audio issue was tied to the Maximus as my previous Z370 board was a Gigabyte and this crackle issue was not apparent when using the same RTX2080TI.

Asus Audio through the speakers sounds great and i've not had any pop/crackle issues during games or media even when CPU loads are high, which from what i've read seems a common problem.

Salad 😄

can anyone help me to how to install driver without sonic studio virtual mixer please !!!

MoKiChU, after I installed the new driver I saw that a Speaker configuration (Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer) appeared, did I install the wrong driver or is this something new? Because due to bugs in Sonic Studio I chose to use the Realtek UAD driver and control panel only, thank you.


Hi,

If you are looking to perform a custom install, please refer to this post : https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?117596-DRIVERS-Realtek-Audio-(UAD-Intel-2xx-3xx-4xx-amp-AM...

Hi,

- Minimal (such as Microsoft built-in drivers) : Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process > Right click on "AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG-PRIME-TUF_MB_v6.0.xxxx.x\Realtek\Codec_xxxx.x\HDXASUS.inf" > Install > Wait for the message "The operation completed successfully" or for restart request.

- Realtek Only (like ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF RTK motherboards but the equalizer in Realtek Audio Control will not work) : Delete the ThirdParty folder from AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG-PRIME-TUF_MB_v6.0.xxxx.x folder then follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step.

- Full without Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer (don't work for ROG Z490 & B460 motherboards) : Follow scrupulously this process.

- Full : Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step.

This is definitely the worst driver you have released so far, I did all the steps until I was able to install the drivers without the virtual mixer, but the realtek panel in the store doesn’t work with the equalizer, I did the installation clean and it still doesn’t work, you can post the link from the previous driver, I will continue using the old one until you repair the next drivers, I am on the Windows 1909 version, thanks.


It's working even in windows version 2004
So You may need to fully remove all drivers .
Thanks

I followed all the steps and it really works the way he specified, I apologize for my ignorance, now I will try a new step, however the SSVM Remover Patch link is no longer available.

I did this step, but realtek does not install, there is an error in the microsoft store when trying to install Realtek Audio Control, should I follow the step with SSVM Remover Patch?

I just wanted the drivers to work with realtek audio control with equalizer as it worked before, what should I do? I'm kind of lost here in the information.
