I will wait to release the next version of the Realtek kernel driver. As of the next AAF Mod update, the package will be open source, that is, it will be visible to everyone through a compressed file manager, such as WinRAR, 7Zip and so on.

Hello Alan Finotti, thank you very much for your contribution! After installing all the enhancements, my Realtek ALC269 sometimes has a sound delay. I know that it is not recommended to install all the enhancements, but I don't know how to choose the enhancement plug-in that suits me. Which enhancements do you recommend I should install? (Sorry! English is not my native language, there may be errors in the statements, I'm sorry!)

For me, Sound BlasterX 360° or 720° is already very good and doesn't cause latency. Here I use Sound BlasterX 720° + Dolby Atmos for Gaming and I don't even notice latency.

I don't recommend DTS:X Ultra because, at least in my case, it causes a lot of latency.

Hi all! I release pre-final version of AAFUninstaller, please check it :)
You no longer need to run powershell as administrator. The script will do everything by itself. You just have to unzip the archive and run the AAFUninstaller.cmd file. If you are a regular user on the system, please accept the request from the UAC to grant administrator rights.
AAF Uninstaller updated to version 1.3! :)
  • Support old versions of AAF DCH Optimus Sound installers.
  • Redesigned script, contains more than 1000 lines of code!
  • Almost completely cleans up the installed AAF DCH Optimus Sound, except for dangerous recordings.

Hey Alan, you're doing a fantastic job on keeping the drivers updated and always improving it!
Thanks for the mod but unfortunately I can't appreciate your work on my computer... What I mean is: DTS and/or Dolby Atmos for Gaming seems to not be working (These two are the tweaks I was trying to accomplish). My guess It's because I'm running a Windows 10 Insider build (more specific details below).

More info:
- Reinstalled the driver several times choosing different tweaks (installations with many tweaks and others with minimal)
- I've been using AAFUninstaller before every installation.
- Realtek Audio Console (UWP) home page doesn't show anything, no configurations.
- There's nothing related to DTS or Dolby on Device Proprieties>Advanced>Default Format.
- Tried to use the configuration: PCI VID and Verb VID: 1849; SID: 1151 on AAF ALC Audio Policy Tweak Tool.
- DTS:X Ultra always requesting to connect a headphone (same with DTS Headphone:X v1).
- Dolby Atmos for Gaming is opening and looks like it's working, but when I change anything I can't hear the difference, it's the same result as without Dolby Atmos.

System specs:
- Windows 10 Home - Insider Build (Dev Channel, build 21390)
- MOBO: ASRock B450M Pro4-F (Realtek ALC892)
- CPU: Ryzen 5 3400G

Valeu, parceiro!

@TheusKhan, did you enable developer mode before installing the soundmod?

Also try cleaning the system through AAFUninstaller 1.3.1 (link above) before installing the soundmod.

Hey Alan, I was not sure what to do with my time now my sounds rocks and rolls so sweetly. No crashes, no hangs. It is stable. I can reboot and open/close creative 720 or not use it at all. Then I remembered I have an old PC I could fix up. Its core 2 duo but its only collecting dust when it could be sold or donated. There are major shortages. I dont know if it will run Win10 even I believe it was 7 but has no hdd. Can I install win7 in a new ssd w/o a hdd?


UPDATED: I am so excited now that i know it has Realtek (I never thought I would ever say that before your sweet suite)
  1. 8 Channels ALC889A Audio controller

Ok, copy the current policy *, then delete policy, using the red X left side of the flashing text, reboot, then do the video below, I'm exporting to my Policy Installer.
After the reboot and the get OEM policy, I suggest: DrvCtrl-20 -- 3-Vista24BitRecord (24bit, HD microphone).

* Location: Windows\System32\drivers\RTKHDAUD.dat

Hi Ferather- I have installed AAF driver but it does not make any sound effect at all. I have read your replied and I try to follow your suggestion to update RTKAUD.DAT policy. Question- where i can download the Policy installer ?

Sorry to hear that, I am not sure the policy editor will fix your issue, as I was responding to a different issue.

It comes with the policy I am using [ALC 889], I suggest making your own as each chip is different.

Using Windows 10 21H1's newest update broke my existing install. I'll need to find out what release I was on previously, however it had 5 channel support for my motherboard - ASUS ROG Strix X470-F Gaming AMD Ryzen 2 AM4 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 ATX Motherboard. After the OS updated I had to reinstall the basic Windows Realtek drivers to get sound back. I uninstalled the base driver, uninstalled all other bits as instructed with DriverStoreExplorer, rebooted, then installed the latest AAF DCH Optimus Sound 6.0.9172.1 (Signed) release. Unfortunately 6.0.9172.1 does not have multi-channel support for formats that my receiver supports anymore. I have a Pioneer HTS-GS1 Surround Sound System, using SPDIF optical out.

I'd love to get 5.1 support working, as the AAF drivers are the only ones I've found that typically don't cause headache with getting this set up right for my HTPC.

Thanks for all the great releases and support!

Edit: Based on my downloaded installers, it looks like AAFAudioPackDCH-6.0.9079.1 was the last one that was functional for me. Sorry MS went and screwed it all up with this update :(

Hello. I have motherboard asus x570-e with realtek S1220A audio.

I'd like to use the optical and analog outputs at the same time. Optical goes to full range speakers. Analog goes to subwoofer. I can accomplish this with voicemeeter, but would prefer to do so without third party applications. Possible with driver?

For what it's worth, I used the AAFUninstaller (great tool!) and then installed 6.0.9159.1 as TheDoctorTash recommended, however I still only have 2-channel support. The installer didn't seem to let me specifically install Dolby Digital/DTS - the standalone check boxes simply wouldn't check for me. I'll be fine with just 2-channel for now, but I believe that 6.0.9159.1 was the first release I found that caused issues with this for me. 6.0.9079.1 was the last functional release that gave me 5.1, as I'd had to roll back to that previously, hence my issue of the new Windows release causing issues.

Thanks all for the support and replies - I'll be glad to test what I can as I'm able.

Thanks for your feedback! At the very beginning, when i switched to DTS DCH Optimus Sound, i also faced the problem of 2-channel audio in browsers. What i did: opened the Spaker Out settings and set "Surround sound to 7.1", then clicked "Next" and unchecked the "Audio pair" checkbox, after that i launched the Realtek HD manager (select Realtek HD Audio Manager to install, when installing the DTS DCH Optimus Sound) and set it to sound effects menu item "Living room". I have appeared 5.1 channel in all applications, try the same.
P.S.: I use a 6.0.9172.1 driver in my (ALC-892) 10EC 0892 sound card.

He is not fully able to express him self in English. Here is my interpretation:

Thanks for all donations, and support. I would like to express deeply how thankful I am (Alan) to those who give positive feedback, and also to those who report issues, because it helps me (Alan), improve the driver.
