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?
Anyone?

Dear,
I come to thank everyone for the donations received and for supporting the project. I would like to express my immense and deep gratitude to those who praise, but also to those who have problems or complain, not being ignorant, because through these messages there is a need to improve even more, perfecting the modified driver. I always try to serve everyone and treat them with due respect. To you, my thanks coming from Brazil. :love::love::love::love:
I really like your Optimus Sound Mod project! If possible, could you also add to the project the SRS Audio Sandbox sound mod that i have been using for many years. It would be great to use it in your project too :love::love:

Separate apps, I was going to work on a Dolby universal unlocker, have not bothered. I gave Alan the source, but I don't think he has done it yet.

Okay I am really helpless and frustrated.

First of all thanks @Alan Finotty for the work you put into this project.
Although I really would like to ask you to make this much more clearer, like archiving the wrong versions.
Some versions are not working (at least for me) at all.

I was using the 6.0.8960.1 for quite a while then I decided to update it because Nahimic for example just completely gone (but still had to remove it manually to use UserBenhcmark) same with SoundBlaster.
Today I am trying to make this work since 2 hours and 20 reboots without success.
I tried 6.0.9172.1 (latest) first, then 6.09137.1, then 6.0.9159.1 and all doesn't work for several reasons:
- There is no Audio manager or Console doesn't start, or if does there is no 5.1 option - useless
- Couldn't install both Dolby even seperately - useless
- DTS Sound Unbound shows option to Buy or Trial, clicking doesn't get anything, other DTS:X Ultra version needed headphone connected - useless
- Sound Blaster 720° doesn't work even after using the KGAConfig.exe with option 2 - useless
- Sonic Studio 3 says "The current system is not supported, or the audio driver has not been properly installed." - useless

Between trials I used @TheDoctorTash uninstaller and @lostindark DirverStoreExplorer, also CCleaner registry cleanup to delete everything I can.
One side effect is that my audio devices are unknown in device manager (any advice how to fix this?)

I have a GIGABYTE B450M Aorus Elite motherboard with latest BIOS, OS is Windows 10 Pro 21H1 latest version.
The board has SPDIF pins so I have bought an expansion card and has an optical cable plugged into my Sony BDV-E2100 5.1.
I also have all Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable x64 2005-2008-2010-2012-2013-2015-2019 installed.
I am in developer mode and tried doing all of this without internet as well.

What am I doing wrong?
Please help!

"DTS Sound Unbound shows option to Buy or Trial, clicking doesn't get anything." Disable store auto-updates, uninstall app, to remove residuals open 7-Zip as admin.
Navigate to: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ and delete any DTS folders. I suggest a PC restart, then install the provided Sound Unbound.

The rest, I can't say, as I am using a different driver.

Well I did manage to cleanup C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ (wasn't easy) but still no succes.
Microsoft Store auto-updates are disabled.

I don't know what is the problem.
I will try the version I was using before.

The same thing happened to me...After using TheDoctorTash AAF Uninstaller version 1.3, everything is the same as what you write. Only the recovery from the checkpoint was saved. Restore the state of the computer from the checkpoint before using TheDoctorTash - AAFUninstaller @TheDoctorTash - did you do your own shit yourself? "I almost killed the computer because of you." Dolby gaming-everything works perfectly in multichannel. Put away your bullshit app - don't embarrass yourself and don't mislead people

Glad I am not the only one.
I tried checkpoint recovery, but it didn't work either... (got an error)

After that I tried sfc scan, other windows restore stuff and so on.
I managed to get a working AAF mod finally with Dolby and DTS however it outputs 3 channel in default but works fine with 5.1 movies. Also Sony can upmix 2 channels with Dolby Pro Logic 2 so no problem so far.

My device manager is still broken, I will need to reinstall Windows probably.
I wasted my half day and screwed my PC, I will NEVER use other ppls shell script again.
Use it at your own risk and ALWAYS make a restore checkpoint!

There was nothing wrong with the normal AAF Uninstaller. It works as it's intended. Why fix something that's is not broken?

Should be: run the uninstaller, then run pnputil as admin from command prompt to remove any extensions or remaining drivers (see here), I then run CCleaner reg cleaner 3 times.
In 'device manager' in 'system devices' disable 'High Definition Audio Controller', I have two and its the first one, restart, install, enable.

For pnptuil I do: pnputil -e, then pnputil -d oemX.inf, where X is the number you see on the screen.

Hope you haven't used the beta version 1.3.2 of the AAFUninstaller in my signature? Please don't use the beta yet. Since in 6.0.9172.1 i also found similar bugs at first, so i had to roll back the system to the previous state. Alan's new driver contains completely different structures in the file repository, i'm at a loss why this was done, i think Realtek overdid it :confused:. In general, i am also looking for solutions to the problem.

I recommend using DDU to clean uninstall all the audio drivers.
What? Do not mislead people with DDU - Display Driver Uninstaller. It is not suitable for audio devices.

I am afraid I did, I have to check later.
I am not mad at you or anything, this was a good lesson for me as well.
But damn it took so long to find a working mod again.

I choose not to use third party apps to uninstall drivers, I instead use Windows as much as possible, it might be a little more annoying to use pnputil, but its built into Windows.
Any third party apps should be fully tested to make sure they comply with the methods Windows uses to uninstall drivers (including any sub commands).

The only third party apps I use during cleanup is CCleaner, to remove registry entries, and Device Remover, after a restart, to clean old interfaces.

Using the force feature with the app can break Windows :( I have used Device remover for years without issues, I only use it on busted systems. I just use Windows myself.

After testing all the stuff you and others have offered It finally ends in "format c:\"- something messed up the connection between apos and driver + store apps. - But it's okay it's the way of Try and Error. :clap:

Please sorry for this bug, Zonder, lockheed7 and all, who using the AAFUninstaller version 1.3 and newest, i didn't want this. :( In a future version, i will rebuild the AAFUninstaller to remove the AAF DCH Optimus Sound painlessly. I unloaded all information about the mod from the registry, now i will collect it from inf files in the sound mod assembly. This is a lot of work.
Please do not download version 1.3 or newest in the attachment and on GitHub.
