OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/8xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx/8xx 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 All.
Is it just me and my setup that the latest driver doesnt work in Games??? The amplify level disappear in control panel, and the sound is low. It happens when I start up games from Steam.

Happy for any help!!



I noticed this too with Steam game. Launch the game and then alt-tab back to desktop and open Volume Settings. I found that the game was somehow set to 20% volume instead of 100%. Change it.

Hi!!
Thanks for the advice. For me it isnt the volume that reduces, but the amplify level that shoots down. It turns off!!

Hi, could you point me to the right drivers please?

Hello, I have the same problem. Did you find a solution? It has been the same since the first day of Windows 11. There is no problem in Windows 10.

Hi!!
No solution for the problem. But I installed the Audio pack drivers from the ASUS support site and the problem is gone. I found out that is many with the same problem and they are working with it.

Hi,

There is nothing wrong, the issue is on your side :

- Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process
- Use this SS3 Cleaner tool (Right click on "A-Volute_SS3_Cleanup.exe" > Run as administrator) then restart your PC
- Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process

Question for you @Mokichu:

Why the Drivers from the forum don't install the DTS Components?

Thx.


Since the 6.0.9251.1 WHQL drivers, there has been a major change made by Realtek regarding the drivers package type dedicated to your motherboard, which fact that DTS APO4x Core Sofware Component & DTS APO4x Service Sofware Component are no longer used by the new drivers package type architecture.

I think my question was going to be pretty much what you just asked. Previously on my ASUS Rog Crosshair VIIII Formula board using Mokichu drivers I always had DTS connect and iirc DTS Live options in Realtek Console digital out panel. Now its just setting to change sample rate.


Hi,

This it never was.

===================================


It fixes the issue with Sonic Studio 3 closing by itself after some seconds?

My problem is:

When i open SS3, makes the NAHIMIC service to close by itself and ofc. SS3 close too, because it needs that service to be running to work.
