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).

Hello
I have PRIME B660-PLUS D4. Which one audio driver do I need? Now I have 6.0.9222.1 version.

Hi,

You have an ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME Realtek motherboard, so:

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME RTK MB) from the first post of this thread.


Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process. For the next drivers packages that MoKiChU would release, you can directly follow your UPDATE process.

Also guys, in the driverstore explorer I see a lot of duplicate .inf files, newer and older versions of the same driver. Can you safely delete the older dated duplicates?

Universal Recognition brother 🙂

Alright, I tried to roll back the 1.8.0.0... Result;



Remember though I had to install Realtek UAD Audio Driver (6.0.1.8666) from ASUS support, because when I did a clean install last time, it refused to install Nahimic service and A-Volute components via the cmd script therefore I couldn't open the Sonic software. That is why it rolled back to 1.3.0.0. Once the ASUS software was installed, I was able to overwrite its components via the 6.0.8960.1 cmd script.

So since rolling back didn't work for me, I tried to point Device Manager to do a manual update, the result was not good;



After this I tried DriverStore Explorer to install it the 1.8.1.0 for me and that didn't work either.



So at the moment I am stuck with 1.8.0.0 and everything works, but not sure how the next update is going to be.

Hi,

You can do a cleanup after each update (I recommend it to you) via Driver Store Explorer :

- Click on the "Select Old Drivers" button
- Check the box "Force Deletion" then click on the "Delete Package" button
- Restart your PC


Note : If the old drivers cleanup is not done after the update, they will be deleted anyway by Windows Disk Cleanup (if the obsolete drivers box is checked).

Thanks Mo, that's exactly what I just did 🙂

Hi mokichu, I appreciate everything you do around here.

I wanted to ask you what amplify level does and which one I should use for the best quality.

Hi,

When you plug (unplug then plug if already plugged) the jack 3.5 mm of a headphone, the automatic impedance detection will automatically choose the appropriate level of amplification for you (depending on the impedance of the headphone), but you can force it to Powerful or Extreme manually.

On the other hand, when you use jack 3.5mm to connect audio active/powered equipment (like powered speakers), the automatic impedance detection does not distinguish between passive (like a headphone) and active equipment (like powered speakers) and therefore will wrongly try to detect the impedance audio active/powered equipment, and wrongly adjust the amplification level to Extreme while a audio active/powered equipment should not receive amplified audio stream (to avoid reducing the lifespan of your equipment and not to saturate the sound spectrum).

So, in order to avoid reducing the lifespan of your equipment and not to saturate the sound spectrum, I advise all people who use jack 3.5mm to connect audio active/powered equipment (headsets jack 3.5 mm are not concerned because they are passive/not powered equipment) to set this parameter on Performance, whatever the result of the automatic impedance detection.
