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:

DOWNLOADS & UPDATES HERE (LINK TO LATEST VERSION)

Latest HDAUDIO Driver Version: 6.0.9567.1

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 "Provider" is "Realtek", "Dolby", "DTS", "Creative", "A-Volute", "AAF Optimus", etc in the "Sound, Video and Game Controllers", "Extensions", "Software Components" and "Audio Processing Objects" device categories.

Yes. It already has an integrated ASIO driver.

@fxtreme If you still have difficulty, please provide a file below. Open the compressed file and copy rtkhdaud.dat to "%systemroot%\System32\drivers", replace it if it already exists and restart your computer.

Works great man.

I can run Sound Blaster Connect flawless. It makes a big difference music/gaming/movies.

From HD Audio Manager/Realtek, the SounzReal EXP Settings are good too. OmnniSpeaker EXP and MP3+ sound nice.

To bad I can't chain Viper4Windows. Some convolvers you can use there are really good.

From Dolby, only the Dolby Atmos from App Store I can get to run in concurrence.
Dolby Atmos Sound System or any other I tried, always problem accessing the driver.

Does this work on MSI B350M Pro VD PLUS ? Audio is: Realtek® ALC887 Codec

Link to the board: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B350M-PRO-VD-PLUS/Specification
Yes it works.

I only get this:

Try this tweak (Requires .NET Framework 4 or higher)

1° - Exit Sound BlasterX 720°
2° - Unzip the entire folder "Licensing" inside the compressed file and run GenKGA.exe (if necessary, disable your antivirus TEMPORARILY)
3° - Start Sound BlasterX 720° again.

If you still can not, try upgrading the Sound BlasterX 720° version through this LINK. (Remember: during installation, uncheck the Audio Driver option in the program installer).

Post your result.

I've just tried this driver on my Asus Maximus V Gene with SuprmeFX III onboard audio. I believe it's a Realtek ALC892 Codec.
It works fine except the rear speakers don't work in analog 5.1 output and I can't see any Dolby Digital Live or DTS Connect software for digital output.

Nope, same result.
Something I've noticed is that any moded driver disables the ability to reprogram the connectors.

For me it installed with no problems and everything seem to be working except VoiceMorph from "SoundBlaster Connect 2". When I try to enable it I hear some weird sounds like a laggy recording (maybe it supposed to be this way so you can actually hear yourself but the playback speed of the audio is very slow ... not sure).

SoundBlaster2Connect.jpg

Look cool tho ... and the "regular" audio drivers have some new options like "DTS Connect" and "SounzReal EXP" - dont know what this last one is tho :)

SounzReal.jpg

This SounzReal EXP doesn't seem to be working ... I can't click on any buttons ! (the DTS Connect I think you need an optical connection to a DTS receiver or something). Is the driver correctly installed not sure how to check ...

I don't know sadly how to "test it" all to see if it really works but sound difference I've noticed really quick with some AudioTehnica M50X headphones !
