Greetings to all sound enthusiasts, who want to have a better audio experience on their PCs but don't want to spend a lot on physical upgrades.
I present to you the AAF DCH Optimus Sound.

Now in a different way!!

This version is based on the generic Microsoft HD Audio Kernel Driver (HdAudio.sys), the one that is already built into Windows. This allows this package to be used on ALL audio chips that are capable of working with the generic driver - regardless of brand.

DOWNLOAD HERE

Now, an installer package with just the necessary Realtek content is available, for those who are only interested in enabling their Realtek ALC audio chips with the basic features. I hope they make good use of it.

Latest Version: Based on Microsoft HD Audio Kernel Driver (HdAudio.sys)

  • Dolby Digital Encoder
  • DTS Interactive Encoder
  • Creative Sound Blaster Connect:
    • BlasterX 360°
    • BlasterX 720°
    • Blaster Cinema 5
  • Nahimic by AAF Optimus (Modified) (APO4 Only)
  • Sonic Studio 3 (ASUS ROG) (APO4 Only)
  • Support for Sonic Radar 3
  • Dolby
    • Dolby Atmos Speaker System
    • Dolby Atmos For Gaming
  • DTS
    • DTS Studio Sound
    • DTS:X Ultra
    • DTS Sound Unbound

In case Sound Blaster Connect doesn't work, download the tool below to solve the problem:
KGA Automatic Configuration Download (Link Updated)

Enjoy AAF Optimus Sound!!!

Woohooo! Thank you so much

Looks like sound blaster connect 2 does not work. Is it because I have to use supported headphone or something else? My chipset is ALC1200. Samething happed modded realtek driver too. Otherwise it's working very well

I will change the version of the embedded program. Meanwhile, you have the choice of the UWP version already present.

Can you give me the hardware ID of the audio chip?

I had enabled the driver only for the HDAUDIO enumerator.

Open the Run Menu by pressing WinKey + R and typing "devmgmt.msc". In the opened window, find the "Sound, video and game controllers" class, select the device in question and double-click. In the new window, click on the "Details" tab and in the "Property" field, select "Mismatched IDs". Copy the text below and send it here.

It's not working with bluetooth headset ☹
Bluetooth devices require a separate kernel driver. It is in my plans to include Bluetooth devices in the package support.

I will look for alternatives to the currently present DTS Interactive decoder library. I apologize in advance for the inconvenience.

Tomorrow I will have the solution ready. (GMT-3)

Hello.

I made the default instalation (Dolby + DTS X + SoundCreative 2)

Dolby ask me to connect a speaker (since I have my soundbar connected to my TV via eArch)
DTS and SoundBlaster doesn't detect my speakers either.

Only Sonic Studio seems to work on my computer.

@sungerbob
Downgrade of Sound Blaster Connect 2 from version 3.3.37.0 to version 3.2.15.0, as well as processing libraries from version 2.0.0.3 to version 1.2.65.10

Added additional endpoints for full audio I/O support.

Can I use this to enable digital surround with "Dolby Atmos for Headphones"?
Unfortunately not.

Still same result. I can control controls sadly it didn't affect anything. Should I use certificated device to use that?

Thanks for the update!

Still same result.
Navigate to "C:\ProgramData\Creative\SoftwareLock" and see if the KGA file is present.

Reuploading Files...

Done!

Here's KGA file in C:\ProgramData\Creative\SoftwareLock if you intersted.

Also I can't install DTS Ultra without selecting Sound Connect 2.

Thank you

Hello! Driver for All USB Sound Cards maked ? This driver need me. Thanks


To be soon? For all USB Sound Cards please. Thanks.

you already made a similar request here and you don't need to do it again which is annoying :mad:
just wait gosh darn it

and you don't even mention what kind of computer you are using - that's why nobody wants to help you



Please support the 1394firewire sound card

not helpful enough when you did not specify what kind or brand of 1394 firewire sound card you are using
and mention the computer being used

@AAF Optimus, nice to see someone inspired you to improve-broaden your support. It's nice to see more generic packs available, not tied to drivers.
@Everyone, give Alan some time to make adjustments, its not easy to support a large array of APO's and bypasses, coding, so on.

@AAF Optimus, Quick question, is it possible to use the pack to add more APO's for someone using my DTS DCH driver?
I will be looking at the official Dolby driver soon, and perhaps can workout a way to expand your pack.

Also 'DTS Interactive' is an encoder NOT decoder, it encodes PCM to DTS Surround.
Decoders convert the format to PCM, and before the audio device.


Encoder: PCM > Audio device (and APO's, DSP's, which are PCM processors) > PCM to Format (encoder) > Format out.
Decoder: Format > Format to PCM (decoder) > Audio device (and APO's, DSP's, which are PCM processors) > PCM out.

PCM Shared: PCM > Audio device (and APO's, DSP's, which are PCM processors) > PCM out.
PCM Exclusive: PCM > Audio device > PCM out.

Passthrough: Format > Audio device (passthrough) > Format out.
