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 everyone,

- The Third Party SS3 Extension Driver have been updated & SS3 VAD Media Driver have been added.
- Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer is no longer optional.


Thread & Post updated.


/!\ : After installing SSVM (Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer) for the first time, it switches itself as Playback/Recording default devices (whether SSVM is enabled in SS3 or not). Remember to set your usual Playback/Recording devices by default (and, if you don't plan to use SSVM, disable the SSVM Playback/Recording devices). A new version of the SS3 app is under development which will automatically disable the SSVM Playback/Recording devices if SSVM is disabled in SS3 (SSVM is disabled by default), and automatically enable them if SSVM is enabled in SS3).

Hi everyone,

A new SS3/SR3 version has just been released (3.16.9.0), which brings the functionality I mentioned earlier (automatic activation/deactivation of SSVM Playback/Recording devices).

@ Forza Horizon 3/4 users : Please check if you still have a crash with this new version of SS3.

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF MB) from this thread. Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that MoKiChU would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

Note (in order to choose correctly the install/update process to use) : You have a ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard.

Hi,

1) Disable hibernation :
- Right-click Windows Start button then click Search.
- Search for cmd. In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt and then click Run as administrator.
- If/When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
- At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off and then press Enter then close the Command Prompt


2) 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_util_v2.exe > Run as administrator), then Apply, then close MSI Mode Utility & restart your PC.

Which version should I install for my b360-g motherboard? HDA or UAD. After deciding on these, should I download the "ASUS ROG SSx" version or the other.
