OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC408x).
Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC408x).

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).

sorry, i have previously posted in the wrong thread about gen 1 or gen 2

i know i have gen 1 (you told me that by PM, asus b550 f gaming ) i am on the 6.0.9279 gen 1 drivers

in this last one 6.0.9282 there is no choice of gen 1 or 2. so i tried the update like mentionned. but i loose realtek hd setting like equalizer.
is this last version supposed to work correctly with gen 1?

Hi everyone,

@ ASUS ROG SS3 motherboards users & ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboards users :

I'm starting to get sick of these Gen questions : Since Gen2 drivers are Gen1 & Gen2 motherboards compatible, thereby there is no more Gen1 drivers on the thread, so there is no more confusion. Those who do not agree with that just have to use the drivers from their motherboards support page.


Thread, post & drivers packages updated.

Hi,

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 MB) Gen2 from the first post of this thread : [DRIVERS] Realtek USB Audio (MB | Intel 5xx/6xx & 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 @MoKiChU:D
Drivers sounding good, but this time it's hard for me to compare, as I usually compare with HDMI from my Strix 3090, but after the last Nvidia update, the HDMI sound is a little clipped sounding(first time for Nvidia I ever noticed a sound degradation:eek:), anyhow when comparing to the last driver pack, no real difference. for both Realtek or SS3.

But it is odd when Realtek sounds better than HDMI:confused:
