  • SS (Sonic Studio) is DPS by Bongiovi Acoustic Labs rebadged for ASUS ROG products : SS drivers (which are not signed WHQL  and therefore are not approved by Microsoft) and SS user interface are from/in Armoury Crate and are not contained in the Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS-DTS) packages (mainly because I do not release non-WHQL drivers and therefore I do not release drivers which are not validated by Microsoft, but also because the SS drivers by Bongiovi interferes with all the audio components of your system and because the SS drivers by Bongiovi are not made to work without SS user interface from/in Armoury Crate without generating side effects (like for example sound as if you were underwater).

Follow these steps to get rid of SS drivers by Bongiovi :

1) Delete the SS drivers by Bongiovi : 

- Launch Driver Store Explorer as admin > Check the boxes of all versions of these drivers .inf (if you find them) : bongioviapomb.inf | bongioviapo.inf
- Check the box "Force Deletion" then click on the "Delete Driver(s)" button
- Restart your PC

2) Reinstall your Realtek USB Audio drivers (the last from your motherboard support page or the last from my thread as explained just below) : 

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 : [DRIVERS] Realtek USB Audio (AMD 5xx/6xx/TRX40 & Intel 5xx/6xx/7xx).

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.

3) Reinstall your Razer Synapse for your THX featured headset : Uninstall & Install your Razer Synapse app : https://www.razer.com/synapse-3.

Hey @djzafer,

Feel your pain! Bongiovi can definitely alter the sound in a way that clashes with other audio settings. There are a couple ways to disable it:

  • Sound Settings: This is usually the easiest. Right-click the speaker icon in your taskbar and go to "Sounds." Select your playback device, then click "Properties." Under the "Enhancements" tab, you should see an option to disable "Bongiovi Acoustics DPS."
  • Software Suite: If you have any software from your motherboard manufacturer (like ASUS Armoury Crate), there might be a setting to disable Bongiovi there as well.

    Need any info about steps to self forgiveness?

That's the worst part. There is no bongiovi acoustics rendering effect where you say! It must have somehow come with the drivers for the motherboard, but which one? There is no such setting in armory create!
