Hi all,

I remember there was a need to patch some xaudio2 DLLs (both 32bit and 64bit) in order for surround sound to work properly when selecting "SPDIF" output and with Dolby digital live enabled, at least for some games.

Do you all know if this is still the case now? Or has issue been fixed by Microsoft on the Xaudio2 's end?

If this is not officially fixed yet, can anyone confirm if the hex edit instructions still work on Windows 11?
Or possibly provide a set (both x86 and x64) of prepatched DDLs that will work on win 11?

Thanks.

Hi everyone and especially AAF Optimus. I have a problem with all DOLBY ATMOS or maybe someone else has the same problem, it happens that when I install AAFOptimusDCHAudioPack-10.0.2311.9336 I restart the server and everything works fine, but the next time I restart DOLBY ATMOS it stops working even though it is on but not emits no sound effect, the version that works 100% for me is AAFOptimusAudioPack9301. Could you please fix it and excuse my English.

Hi from Florianópolis. I have an Asus Z690 board with a "Realtek ALC897 / 887" runnning Win11. Can I use your drivers to enable Dolby Digital Live or DTS Connect (Interactive?) to output a 5.1 configuration in real-time via SPDIF to my receiver, like I do with my PS4 on the same receiver?

I've noticed that if "Realtek audio console" is set to headphone, DOLBY ATMOS doesn't recognize my headphone the next reboot of windows 11, but when I start the "Realtek audio console" app and switch from headphone to speaker and switch back to handset, DOLBY ATMOS starts to work properly again. But this does not happen when "Realtek audio console" is set to speaker, the problem is only for headphones.

Hi!

I have an ASUS ROG STRIX Z-590-F GAMING WIFI motherboard with the ALC4080 chipset. My OS iz Windows 11. Unfortunately, the original drivers didn't allow me to use my 5.1 surround speakers (Logitech X-530) when playing files which were not recorded for 5.1 systems. It appears that generally there are some issues with the drivers and Windows 11.

Long story short, a little google research and I found your drivers and installed them and I got my 5.1 system to work through Sound Blaster Connect.

Unfortunately, the Realtek Audio Console doesn't work (can not connect to RPC service). I tried manually adding the AAFDCHBgSvc64.exe file in System32 (according to your instructions) and enabling it through Services and Registry (it WASN'T present in the directory), but it still doesn't work. Have you got any suggestions?

I followed the installation instructions to the letter, uninstalled all drivers and used the cleaning utility for all residual files. Basically everything works except the Realtek Audio Console.

Thank you in advance!

I also have ALC4080 chipset, but mine works, except the Realtek Audio Console. Fortunately, I can use SB connect...

@AAF Optimus Any ideas about this?

Thanks!

How can I get lower latency on my headphones with this driver? I've got like 1 sec delay everywhere and it's really bad

Does this require anything special to upgrade from a previous version (9116.1) of AAF DCH Optimus [realtek edition] aside from running the installer?

I installed the 6.0.9336.1

on my z170 asrock board, used original CP picked DDL, and ASIO drivers installed, and mind you love that i dont have to disable driver enforcement anymore, but upon restart, DTS was the only option there was do DDL enhancments for speaker our or optical. but DTS worked fine, which is useless to my cause DTS on my reciever is broke make everything have wobbly effect.

So i went back to v7614 driver i had that manual modded and everything is work as it should again

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: 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", "AAF Optimus", etc 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) and deselect the rest.
Don't forget to go to the "Changes" button to check the changes of the latest version. :toast:

Hi @AAF Optimus ,

I tried to install the new drivers, but the sound does not work. I've followed the installation instructions, but it just doesn't want to play any sounds through my 5.1 speakers.

I had to revert to the previous version, and I had to install/uninstall a couple times until i got it working again. With the old version, I finally got it working by using Windows 11 troubleshooter (it appears I have to reinstall at least 2 times until the troubleshooter can do its thing). I can't get the same result with the new version.

I have Realtek ALC4080 chipset on ASUS ROG STRIX Z590-F gaming motherboard and my OS is Windows 11.

And the Realtek Audio Console is also not working for me in the new version.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance! :)

Hello everyone.
First of all thank you Alan for this tool.

Until Sunday, I had an ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero motherboard, but encountering hardware problems, I had to change the board and switched to a GIGABYTE X570S Aorus Master.
I'm currently on Windows 11 build 22000, and I haven't formatted after changing the motherboard.
On the previous card, I had Sonic Studio 3 and the Realtek console by default, which allowed me to make some adjustments for sound clarity (Loudness equalization under the Realtek console, Smart Volume and Equalizer under SS3).
After changing the card, I noticed a drop in sound quality and realized that it had become impossible for me to use SS3 (basic mode incompatible with the audio device).

So I uninstalled all the drivers using REVO Uninstaller, deleted the remaining ones with DriverStoreExplorer, as well as the UWP apps with OOAPB.
I then blocked automatic driver updates from installing with OOSU10, rebooted, and installed the latest AAFOptimusDCHAudioPack selecting only A-Volute APO4 with Sonic Studio 3.

This allowed me to be able to make adjustments again for sound clarity but I am confronted with a new problem that I have been trying to solve for 3 days, in vain.
There is a noticeable latency in the sound which only goes away if I turn off audio enhancements in the device properties. However, if I turn off the enhancements, I lose all clarity-related effects.

Do you think this is related to using a modified audio driver partially compatible with the audio chipset of this motherboard?
Thank you in advance for your help.

I think the best would be really format Windows and do a fresh install. Because probably there are residues from previous motherboard, things like some driver or even chipset files.
If even after clean installation you still face problems, maybe is a good idea to install the "AAF Optimus DCH Audio Modded Driver for Windows 10/11 - For ALL HDAUDIO Enumerator Chips" from Alan, since this other modded driver is based on Microsoft Generic HD audio driver and it will probably work fine for you.
