Since V.9268 I've had nothing but Driver Breaking issues, it's been
a long while I've been hoping for a fix for my issue but so far nothing.

The issues that recurs is that low frequencies are broken ( Bass )
Bass frequencies on V.9231 were fine.

Today I've tried the new version releases (V.9285 - V.9289 ) but the problem remains.
I will post in annex to this message a screenshot of my windows demonstrating
an aspect of the issue which is when I have audio enhancements Off the Low Frequencies
come back, when I activate it On Low Frequencies are Gone .. but off course it's an AAF
driver problem !

Unfortunately there's more problems. Since I first used this program
some years ago there's also been this problem where I had to fight with
this program in an Install and Uninstall battle as it seemed I had to figure
out which combination of selected options would work for me. I can't think
of this being normal but if you know me to be mistaken please do let me know.

In this other common recurring issue that the AAF driver does Not install,
only the 3rd party apps do, the AAF Realtek Audio icon created on Desktop
comes up without its black lettered icon, in other words install failed,
the Realtek universal app does not load, and yet when it all Seeemed to
have installed properly I still find it hasn't and while testing every time if I
disable audio enhancements from the windows Sound control panel sound
works again.

Additionally in regards to the last mentions the worst of it I've encountered
has been with V.9289, as it happened I tried all possible combinations
and None of them worked, I even tried one of these drivers in another
Win10 OS version but all these issues still happen the same.

Please fix this, Thanks.

NEW DCH DRIVERS RELEASED IN GITHUB
DCH DRIVER VERSION UPDATED TO 6.0.9289.1
MORE DETAILS IN GITHUB

ATTENTION: You will need to uninstall the currently installed version before continuing with this installation. A condition has been imposed for this due to problems reported by some users.

ATTENTION: This driverpack isn't eligible for USB-based Realtek audio chips.

RECOMMENDATION:
Before installing this modified driver, be sure to remove any and all residues from previous Realtek audio drivers or even if there are residues from previous versions of my mods, if they persist. For this you will need the DriverStoreExplorer (by @lostindark). Remove any drivers whose vendor is "Realtek", "Dolby", "DTS", "Creative" or "Alan Finotty" in the Sound, Video and Game Controllers, Extensions, Software Components and Audio Processing Objects categories.

Those who want only Realtek material, just choose the panel option (HDA or UAD), select your decoder and deselect the rest.

Finally Dolby Atmos For Speaker is working on this release. Thanks very much for your best efforts. Hope the DTS license is fine.

Hey guys,

I hope you guys could help me with a problem that I am encountering when trying to use this. When I install this after a clean wipe, everything seems to work fine but after a while, I lose my DTS sound unbound licenses and the spacial sound feature in Windows. Restarting does not seem to help and after a few reinstalls I got the same issue again.

Thank you in advance.

It happened to me as well, I understood that the version offered by
Alan ( the one that is licensed ) is outdated, unless maybe you buy the
program there may not be a way to license the Up to Date version

Ah ok thanks. I was wondering if there was something wrong with my method of installing or so, but I could not find someone with a similar problem.

The licensed Sound Unbound I gave Alan, contains a license, this cannot be replicated with a newer version.
Either disable Windows store updates, to prevent loss of license on update, or buy it.

I wanted to check in since I recently upgraded my stereo receiver to a Denon-AVR2113 which is another generation ahead of thew last and has a network jack and hdmi. I connect with optical and its decent. The ACR deal is weird but I am dialing things in. My mobo is olde so I am using codec ALC892 outputting through optical with the "classic" drivers. I would really like help getting the Soundblaster to work. I try the kga keygen but I must be doing something wrong. The receiver shows up in the sound manager with more options and info the channels, formats etc But I dont know how to manage it. Any ideas on how to get SB720 working?

What exactly are you after on SPDIF? Stereo, multichannel, both? Which apps do you intend to use?

Alan has the cut down version (just x64), this is the full pack, with x86 support (larger file size).

> "If I disable automatic updates in Microsoft store I will have a licence permanently?" - Yes.

Alan handles everything else, I just do DTS, I find its best to stick with a more simpler setup in terms of speed (delay), quality and issues.

No problems.

Hello.

In my system the equalizer still doesn't work, it doesn't do anything, I can move them and it doesn't change the sound at all. The only version that works is AAF DCH Optimus Sound 6.0.9215.1 (Signed). Later versions, the legacy console no longer works. I already asked here but no one paid attention.
I don't use Realtek's Metro apps or Dolby, DTS or anything like that because the audio sounds artificial to me. I prefer Realtek's traditional/legacy console.

Hello,

I hope someone can help me here.
I have the problem that 5.1 don’t work over the SPDIF output to my AVR, it only works when i click on Test on Dolby Digital or DTS in the control panel but it’s not working in games or media players.

I can’t configure the SPDIF out either, does someone maybe know how to fix this?

Thank you.

OK confession time, as it often the case my frustation is caused by oversight. I did not have developer mode enabled. I don't think I will ever fix the Creative thing which is fine. Someday maybe I will buy a Creative sound card for gaming stuff but its a luxury not a necessity. As to Ferather's question I am outputting most or all of the sound from Windows 10 for gaming, Foobar (music player and library) and VLC for movie playback. The Denon VR-2113CI is a 7.1 receiver and its kind of a pain in the ass to use. No complaints since it was free but just to read the 161 page manual you need to run hdmi into it from pc and out to monitor through an ARC hdmi monitor port. Once I could read the manual I was able to setup the input to detect digital signal in optical port via DTS. It has to be the least intuitive setup process and none of the auto detect seems to work and if its unplugged for long apparently it forgets all the settings. There may be a firmware update but i will leave it for now as it may just add more drm controls or filters.

It does have one cool feature I want to try out which is upscaling video to a higher resolution but I havent had time to get into it. One of my problems is not knowing where to go read up on what the difference between an APO and ASIO is....I know the author of Foobar allowed adding support for it but he also wrote an article explain why he believes it not necessary and also why for most people playback at 44.1 is fine. I just use my ear as judge. When Alan dropped the first spdif support that worked and the optical connection worked for the first time since I have been using this board it sounded so glorius. I know HDMI has the same bandwidth or better and it may on its way out but I like optical and its working!

Remember I am on one of the oldest platforms that can still run Windows 10. Asus stopped support for ALC892 in 2016 but I don't think it worked very well before then either. It is pretty sad consumers take such short sales support cycles from the same tech manufacturers that are gouging for GPUs. I know btc drives prices up but so do clueless gamers paying four figures for graphics cards and three figure headsets. So I take some pride it having old stuff work. Not just work but work great! Did Alan remove the old standard drivers from front page? For now I am just installing the second option which is RT APO w/DDL/DTS but no creative, no niantic but yes to Atmos. It was weird that Creative and Niantic could not work yet would always be running in the background. Dolby does improve sound especially modern movies. Not sure on gaming. Any recommendations on where to learn about APO vs ASIO and maybe whether there are open source or free to use positional sound drivers for windows games?

Audio Streaming Input Output (commonly known as ASIO) is a low-latency communication protocol (A DRIVER) for digital audio signals developed by Steinberg. With it, a sound card can be able to record and playback on multiple channels simultaneously.

Equalizer APO is a parametric / graphic equalizer for Windows. It is implemented as an Audio Processing Object (APO) for the system effect infrastructure introduced with Windows Vista for first time. I've created for example a profile for Hesuvi.


Hesuvi it's an advanced software capable to give APO equalizer effects to anykind of Audio Card output.

Make sure you setup Hesuvi properly, personally never got it to work without noise other.

----

@Wombat72, when you press the test format, Windows will bitstream an encoded file, Alan's driver has issues with multichannel PCM on SPDIF.
The reason you get only 2 channels with games, so on, is because its PCM, and as mentioned there is a fault with the package.

Without sounding rude, this is the reason I stopped using Alan pack, and made my own.

Multichannel PCM in > Diver fault > 2 channels processed only > 2 channels out.
