For some reason Sonic Studio 3 doesn't work anymore. It starts up just fine and all that, but the enhancements doesn't apply anymore. Only way to make it work is a reinstall, and then it suddenly stops working again after a reboot. Anyone else having this problem? I don't know if it has to do with my headset (Steelseries Arctis 5) that is causing this when i switch audio device, i haven't really been able to figure it out. Using a Maximus X Hero WiFi
I have encountered the same problem with Maximus X Hero motherboard. The Sonic Studio III only works once and after reboot it won't apply the supposed sound effect. And when I click into Advanced Mode, the app crash instantly.
But it's just a software bug.
I've fond out that SonicStudio3.exe works alone with both SS3Svc32.exe and SS3Svc64.exe. Normally both of x32 and x64 exe are needed for SonicStudio3.exe. But the driver and program installaztion somehow only get one of them starting.
The fix is:
1.uninstall Sonicstudio III in the control panel.
2.comfirm the Realtek HD Audio Manager/SupremeFX is shown on taskbar after restart/uninstall. And it's on auto startup sechedule
or you can get it open in C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RtkNGUI64.exe and make a auto startup schedule of it.
3.reinstall Sonicstudio III
4.end SonicStudio3.exe and SS3Svc32.exe\SS3Svc64.exe in Taskbar.
5.open HD Audio Manager/SupremeFX, under Sonic Suite tab, click Launch Sonic Studio. It probably won't open. But remeber to double click SS3Svc32.exe in
C:\Program Files\ASUSTeKcomputer.Inc\Sonic Suite 3\Foundation\SS3Svc32.exe and SS3Svc64.exe in C:\Program Files\ASUSTeKcomputer.Inc\Sonic Suite 3\Foundation\x64\SS3Svc64.exe. Make sure these two exe are on. Then Sonci Studio III should be lauched from HD Audio Manager/SupremeFX.
6.The next time you restart the system, remember to open Sonic Studio III from HD Audio Manager/SupremeFX. It should work without a problem.
