Enable MSI (Message Signaled-based Interrupts) mode on all your supported devices (see the column "supported modes") with

If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
Disable hibernation (Fast Startup included).

Thread updated.

Sorry if you have been asked before but on the Realtek USb audio install instructions I noticed there are full cleanup and also update instructions. 

Maybe I'm reading it wrong but do you have to do a full cleanup every time or after you have done a full clean up before can you just follow the update instructions? 

Also do you know where to find the release notes for these audio updates?

 

 

 

 

You've just been complaining about MoKiChU's drivers and now you want help?  

Z690 Hero, 12900K, BIOS 3501, MEI 2406.5.5.0, ME Firmware 16.1.30.2361, 7000X Case, RM1000x PSU, ASUS TUF OC 3090TI, 2 x 16GB Corsair RAM @ 5200MHz, Windows 11 Pro 23H2, Corsair H150i Elite AIO, 4x Corsair RGB fans, 3x M.2 NVME drives, 2x SATA SSDs, 2x SATA HDs.

Hi. May I ask which version should I install for Z790-F WiFi II ? Thanks

Hi,

You have an ASUS ROG SS|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard with ALC40xx codec, so :

You need Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS-DTS) 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.

Are there ever any release notes with these audio driver updates?  Evertime I update I never hear the audio get any better and a few times it got noticeably worse with static and crackling.

I've tried using the MSI interrupts tool a couple times but since I don't know exactly what it or I'm doing I feel the odds of making it even worse is high.

I've tried the Z790-H and MSI Edge Z790 both have awful audio issues with static and crackling. It seems like the new boards are just all bad. I'm going to try Asrock shortly

I not the boards because they have high quality DACs in them. It's the drivers. The newest driver Asus has for my board is a year old but it sounds better than the 10? drivers MokiChU hunts down on the internet and posts here.  

I think most people are driver and update obsessed and always assume the latest driver is going to make my hardware sound and perform better.

But with no release notes telling us what the driver fixes or improves plus the fact that int's not in any companies best interest to have driver/software/firmware updates continually improve the hardware you bought for years so that you are happy with it and never upgrade has lead me to believe most driver updates are 99% fluff, filled with nothing.

I have updated my drivers every time MoKiChU posted an update (thanks so much, it is a thankless job you do!). On my z690-f board, I use the optical out to a DAC. Periodically, the output will go to static; then I have to shut all my windows, stop the device, and then restart it (through the device manager). I have had the board for over two years, and between firmware updates and driver updates (UAD - ASUS ROG SS-DTS), it has slowly gotten better to the point where it only happens once every week or two.  ASUS even replaced the board under warranty and there was no change in the issue.

I wanted to post for two reasons. First to thank MoKiChU for his work. Second, to advise others who may have the same problem that the latest Windows 11 update (March 26, 2024—KB5035942) contains a fix for USB audio. Specifically, "This update addresses an issue that affects USB audio. It fails on some processors. This occurs after you pause, play, or resume from sleep." The release notes describe my exact issue, so hopefully, it fixes my issue once and for all!

If anyone else has a similar issue as me, I would appreciate hearing from you as well.
