What drivers should I be using on a Z590?

a z590 what? motherboard? desktop pc? you need to be more specific.
if it's a z590 board, from which board maker? Asrock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, MSI, etc.?
too "vague" or cryptic to just say "Z590" and will get very little or no help in return


note to AAF Optimus - Mokichu released new 6.0.9556.1 asus drivers a few days ago (yup, going from 6.0.9539.1 to 6.0.9556.1 - almost a big jump in versions).
time to play catch up

NEW DCH DRIVERS RELEASED IN GITHUB
HD AUDIO DRIVER VERSION UPDATED TO 6.0.9556.1
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: 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", "A-Volute", "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.

CLARIFICATION: Due to some accusations against me for allegedly including types of viruses or including fraudulent codes for data collection, cryptocurrency mining and other purposes, from now on, when the installation of the packages is finished, a copy of the original script in text file format on Desktop. In this file, the user will have full knowledge of the procedures that I have included in the installer.

@AAF Optimus, Ignore them. You just make mistakes, we all do. Takes long enough to fully sort out one APO and its updates.
I know you have made some mistakes in the past the probably still repeat for some people.

You are quick enough to adapt, I can tell from the recent packages and so on. You do need to test more though.

You can use your large community to test beta packages and so on. I know you cant test everything.

There are more USB Realtek APO's becoming available, so its might be possible to do a USB exclusive soon.
Needs a Realtek USB to write and test changes though, so there is that.

Although, it might also work with testing on a USB headphones, as long as it specifies USB in the registry.


@AAF Optimus, Some info can be gathered from part 2 of my post here, I convert ROOT to HDAUDIO.

Could mean one of the API services is not starting or the driver is not loading. Put it simply, there could have been a failure in the driver package installation . Sometimes the driver is blocked by Windows
When another API is being used it may disable other. That is related to how Windows grants control of audio endpoints but as I'm not an expert you'll have to wait for someone else to help you out. They may ask you to check services ( you can search "services.msc" in start menu and look for Nahimic, Sonic Studio, APO3, APO 4 keywords, etc and those would be audio related services. They should start in order for some apps to work ) . Also, the package installer leaves a .log file on your desktop. We may need it to help you

I am noticing a delay in my audio while playing games. Does anyone know of a fix?

The spatial engine can cause delays, both small and big depending on the software. Disable spatial, then try, if still too high, you will need to turn off APO's.

This worked, but it is disappointing that I can't use the audio enhancements while playing games. Thanks though!

Hello there!

TLDR;

Thank you!

Full post
Since months, after "I don't know which Windows update", my computer doesn't detect anymore when I plug my headphone with jack.
The problem doesn't come from the headphone or the jack: if I reboot the computer with the jack plugged in, it works.

I tried a lot of things (reinstalling drivers, changing registry keys, ...). Some sites says that something can be activated / deactivated in the "Realtek Audio Console", but I don't have this application and can't find a recent version for my computer.
Long story short: nothing worked.

And I found this topic.
- I uninstalled all audio drivers on my computer with DriverStoreExplorer.
- I installed the AAFOptimusDCHAudio-Realtek driver.
- Now I have "Realtek Audio Console" and I can disable the "autodetect window" in the advanced parameters.



Now it works fine!

Thank you very much to the authors.

Residual [drivers] and [registry data] will kick you in the bum if you don't take them out, well now you know :)

I hope @AAF Optimus has made the package self cleaning (from previous installs).
That includes residual endpoint entries that may not be removed by Windows.

Makes me wonder how many customers who report issues are effected by the above.

----

@AAF Optimus, also note some people might tinker and register files, you will need to undo that on install.
Also remove offload support, add class id's to a text file, and allow customers to add offload manually.

You can also checkout my DTS DCH files for final changes, I will tinker with the bass boost attenuation later.
Its been programmed that way, I preferred the previous way but the EQ and other effects are better.

No libs.

Hi, just wanted to say it's so cool that you do this and after all these years I really have never need to install these but then I got irritated with Win11 Realtek universal driver, spent a long time trying to figure this out over the years and ended buying a sound card LOL. Thank you for being in service. Always the 3rd thing.....soooo old pc blew the mobo and I just got a newer version and it's working great. I have a Asus Z97-A/USB 3.1 with Realtek ALC892 8-channel High Definition Audio CODEC featuring Crystal 2

- Premium Japan made audio capacitors provides warm, natural, and immersive
- DTS UltraPC II
- DTS Connect
- Supports jack-detection, multi-streaming and front panel jack-retasking (MIC)
- Optical S/PDIF out port at rear I/O

I just want headphones to show up as headphones, with pluged in to two sperate connectors and have them loader. I struggled with this and ended up using a mix amp pro for a long time with Sennheiser PC 360 Headset for Pro Gaming but for the new pc had similiar driver issues with on board so I ended geting the Sound BlasterX AE-5 which I was able to kinda configure the ohms and man they were super loud but with this on board sound old pc the old problems persist and I am surrendering to you for guidance please and thank you. The pc has i74790k/GTX1080Founders with that Z97-A and fresh copy of Ghost Spectre Windows 11 Super Lite/14 and I was happy to see your drivers in the Ghost Tool box. I started to install but wanted to seek guidance prior to doing so.

No, and it wont happen unless AAF gets a USB version to work with (if not already). They are separate drivers and files, and it doesn't work the same way.
Out of all the unlocked APO's AAF has, only a few of them wont be HDA bias and will work on USB, others wont work at all.

I don't think anyone has made a multi unlocked APO pack for USB, only those already seen on USB.
When Realtek went DCH, most of the original APO's you see on HDA are not available.

Realtek tend to only bother with premium common APO's, APO's like Sony and others you don't see anymore are legacy and not used.


When is the last time you saw Dolby Digital or DTS Interactive for SPDIF, natively with the official Realtek driver?
There is still a high demand for either-both of the above, preferred over HDMI (delays).

No professional DAW (commonly) uses HDMI input for audio, you will see USB then optical (SPDIF) mainly.
SPDIF has both consumer and professional format, HDMI is only consumer grade.

Also anyone who thinks TOSLink or SPDIF is becoming redundant, you are very wrong. Even USB Realtek has SPDIF.
Also the current consumer standard and maximum bitrate is superior to that of HDMI audio.

Also note, there is a difference between sending lossless audio, and being lossless.
You can send lossless audio to analogue, but no analogue is lossless.


If preferred we can translate lossless to 'True Sound', then if you factor in THD and THD-N, how much is True Sound.
