I dont have an Intel to write and test the Intel variant, the only thing I can do is send you a pack that will add DTS:X to pre-existing drivers, although you need enter settings manually.
I have not fully tested the package, and don't really have time at the moment to write an install guide. In short you install it then add effects to the device.

Once installed you need to add the DTS SFX, MFX, EFX to your devices 'composite' effect lines. No guide included, as mentioned.

Intel SST Bus Drivers and Intel SST Multimedia Controller Driver Archive from Dell or Lenovo please include in your Driver Pack. Thanks You Ferather

If I do it wont be anytime soon, It takes time to re-write a driver, and as mentioned I am unable to fully test it.

If you have CPU spikes on machine startup, this is caused by Sound Unbound and third party HDMI-DP devices. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
I rarely use my GPU (Monitor) as an output device, if I do I can only use headphones due to the monitor limitations.

Disable the output point in Windows settings (not the device in device manager), the issue will be gone.
If you intend to use HDMI-DP, even with the ultra mod, enable it after startup.

Hi Everyone! New here I'm trying to do the install. When I double click on the installer ... I get prompted for Main Driver or Alternative? [M/A]

I'm not sure which to select. I'm W10 21H1 My Audio chipset if I understand correctly is S1220A (Link to my motherboards spec page)

Thanks I'll continue to skim the forum and see if I can find the answer.

Okay I see that the Alternative is for ALCs that don't work well. Is there a list of known ALC that should use Alternative or is more of trail and error?

Bit of trial and error, some chips (and sometimes Windows) have bugs, I suggest main first, check SPDIF playback in sound unbound, if it plays you're good to go.
Else your chip (or Windows) does not like the settings, you should then use the alternative, it will make SPDIF more generic, but should work.

Okay thanks. I selected Main, but following the instructions in POST 1, I didn't get prompted to restart Windows

"Double click install, wait for Windows to tell you to restart, wait 5-10 seconds then restart."

So I waited about a minute then restarted, should I have waited longer? It said click any key to continue .... Then it closed the command prompt


After restarting I couldn't find this path. 'WIN10\APPS\UWP_Store\' to install the two .inf files.

"Inside the folder 'WIN10\APPS\UWP_Store\' you will find two .inf files, install them.
They are required to install the relevant app, example Ultra."

I did go to DTS DCH 6.0.9172.1\APPS and installed dtsapo4xultrahsa.inf ... Let me know if that was the right step.

Then I went and installed DTSInc.DTSXUltra_1.10.1.0_nuetral.......AppxBundle

But I feel like I might be missing something. My PC is still offline. When can I safely bring it back online?

Unfortunately I am not able to edit that post, I will contact an admin and get something sorted. I apologize.

DTS DCH 6.0.9172.1 (Signed, Rebuilt)

Added an alternative inf, for ALC's that don't work well with programmed SPDIF and HDMI interface associations (some chips have bugs, and-or issues).
Enabled mode specific preset equalizers, changing modes with ultra is more noticeable, updated the configuration properties.

If you prefer another driver version, the Ferather preset, DTS presets and updater can be found here.

----

Here is a much cleaner way to install-update the drivers, right click uninstall in 'device manager', tick 'delete driver', pnputil to remove the extension (see post 1).
In 'device manager' again, in 'system devices' disable 'High Definition Audio Controller', I have two and its the first one, restart, install, enable.

So here is the summary version of the pop we all get with abrupt stop or starts of audio.

Audio [with pop] --> Audio rendering device --> Speakers [with pop].

What we need is for Windows to manage audio better before it reaches the device.
Alternatively, an SFX, MFX or EFX that specifically addresses the pop.

====

I have attached a bonus list of SSTPPCfg, as seen in 6.0.9172.1 (if you are interested).
If you have any issues with speakers or headphones, please post.

The ';;8' comment is an edit, it suppresses pop in some cases.

Yes, that's for other driver writers and-or modders. Tomorrow if you like we can do Teamviewer and I will unlock DTS:X with your mobo driver.

No worries, I can unlock DTS:X on Windows drivers, and probably other devices such as Creative or Conexant. Using the DTS DCH.zip I provided and edits etc.

Thats fine, just download but dont install TeamViewer (can be used without installing), and make a restore point (or partition backup if preferred).

Well I updated the pack I posted, I will look into an inf file, however if you know what to do the pack I made above will work.

----

Ok so here are the instructions in the easiest form, double click 'install', job done, now in /TOOLS, you will find two .reg files.
You need to modify the {Device-ID} bit, here is a video to help, then restore the registry entries.

Using FX, you will most likely need to move the SFX, MFX, EFX, keys to composite.

For non-Realtek, you will need to edit the preset.inf:

[AzaliaManufacturerID.NTamd64]
%Device.ExtensionDesc% = IntcAzAudModel,INTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC
%Device.ExtensionDesc% = IntcAzAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC

Then disable driver signing.

I can confirm the DTS DCH Ultra pack works on MS drivers (no EFX, not supported), With my GPU I was able to copy the processing mode key into EFX and it works.
Also working on X-FI, it uses LFX-GFX, so you need to move the SFX to LFX, MFX to GFX, EFX is unchanged.

Interactive requires EFX support, here is a driver level composite and processing:

I have a friend with an 892 that cant use the latest Realtek drivers, but can with MS drivers, or older Realtek ones, so you might have the same issue.
If you do, you will need to stick to versions that work, where updates may or may not work for your ALC.

You need to install the Apps .inf file located in /APPS/

[ALC889, Z906] - PCM, 192Khz, 32bit (not float), 6 channels, +36mbps - Sent - Received - Z906 only processes 2 channels, stereo mode enables.

[Interactive:X] - PCM, 192Khz, 32bit (float), 8 channels, +50mbps - Sent - Received - Not processed properly, noisy.
[Interactive:X] - PCM, 192Khz, 32bit (float), 6 channels, +36mbps - Sent - Received - Fully processed.
