It Unlocks sound blaster cinema 5 without any bugs!! but no effect....!! any solution??
I recommend FUTURE_SOLDIER for a fresh installation of windows 10, I did it too, I too had same issue of no audio effects, after reinstalling win10, I can hear loud & clear audio difference

To Test if the Voice Panel Show:

This is the official Creative inf Extension for Creative UWP app which include mbfilt64.sys
https://www36.zippyshare.com/v/KWfCdA7E/file.html
To install
1. Disable Driver Signature Enforcement
2. Add your hardware id on CreativeExtension.inf
3. Use DriverStoreExplorer to install CreativeExtension.inf (similar to install Realtek UAD Driver)

This is the screenshot with mbfilt64.sys installed, I don't have microphone, try plug in microphone if the voice panel show

I have mic, but voice tab is still disabled, I think it needs another kga file

I have noticed a high usage of cpu by the UWPRPC service, I wonder if this is a bug?
I am using still have High CPU problem. There is newer version of UWPServices, but it is not compatible with the app version 1.0.12.0

I think SBX720 desktop version better than UWP version.
SBX720 has more settings and options than Cinema 5.

I knew, I already imagined that people live a lot of expectations and illusions about the Sound Blaster Cinema 5; Now it turns out that I was right and the 720 is much better than the SBC5. More functions, more quality, to me is appreciated for being a software and not an App, and in addition the SBC5 has given (and continues to give) more problems than a foolish son to the whole forum.

Realtek UAD creative, did as u described, nothing works, I plugged microphone, voice panel didn't unlock, I think SBC 5 doesn't have native voice tab support from creative

I recommed these:
2.0: Viper4Windows + Dolby UWP apps
+ DTS Audio only use (HeadphoneX)
+ SBX 720 Desktop
5.1 / 7.1: Dolby UWP apps + SBX720

Idk using multiple audio enchaer is good, but you can use the tool audiodevicegraphdump to see the apo pipe line

Another way to load the APOs is using MBWrp dll. Idk the Windows built in one better or the one make by Creative

https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/making-audio-enhancers-working-on-windows.244309/post-3861010
So @alanfox2000 you only recommend Dolby uwp apps and SBX720 for 5.1/7.1?

One other question

Would SBX720 UWP app work or would I need to use desktop app?

Do I need to use the speakers headphone setting for Dolby Atmos gaming if I don't use Dolby Atmos gaming? I use Dolby Atmos regular UWP app.
