Hi! Alan Finotty
First all thanks a lots for this wonderful driver/project

Here everything works flawless on:

Windows 10 Pro x64 Build 10.0.19044.1320
MB: ASUS HERO VIII
CPU: Intel i7 6700K@4000Mhz
COOLER: Hyper 212 EVO (no O.C.) (2 fan) + 5 fan in MB
RAM: 16GB Ripjaw 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM
VGA: SLI 2x Asus NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4GB
PSU: CoolerMaster 750W
DISPLAY: DELL 24" (1920x1200)
HDD: 2x 1TB WesternDigital RED + 1TB WesternDigital BLUE
CASE: CORSAIR

Intel Sunrise Point Z170, Intel Skylake-S

SupremeFX 2015​

High Definition Audio:
Name codec Realtek ALC1150
ID codec 10EC0900h / 10438691h
Revision codec 1000h
Type codec Audio

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A170&SUBSYS_86911043
Running <= HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438691&REV_1000\4&3D4356C&3&0001
Driver return version = 9279 <<6.0.9279.1>>
Driver return InternalName = RTKVHD64.sys 9279
Driver running model = eMd_Asus_General <83>

I would only ask this, which one profile it's used by the system since all these virtualization software have been installed?
DTS Sound unbound
DTS:X Ultra
Dolby Atmos for Gaming
Sound Blaster Connect

Last one that user opens and configure?

P.S.
Thanks a lots for your time and dedication.

Hey @Alan Finotty, I have a strange problem.

Whenever I play some movies (not all) the dialogs are not coming from the center speaker. I even had a situation where the movie starts normally and then I lose the voices all of sudden. I just hear the lows coming from the SW. I have currently installed AAFOptimusAudioPack9279 - Universal Realtek driver, patched with Dolby and DTS, and additional Realtek AISO, DTS, DTS:X Ultra and Dolby Atmos for Gaming.

Is there any more information you need?

Motherboard is MSI Z490 Gaming Plus. According to MSI website audio codec is Realtek® ALC1200

Did you run a Spk-Test especially for your Centerspeaker?

Yo,
in the "EFFECTS AND IMAGES" section, it says that Sonic Radar is supported, but i can't seem to find it in the installation package, neither online.
Does your mod still support it, and how to obtain it then?

Is this an APO driver? I need an equalizer with saving presets and stabilizing the volume of sounds. It is also important that the audio settings are transmitted not only through the analog output. Which of the entire list of programs will suit me best? Have you added the ability to install only one of the components without installing additional software (for example, only Dolby advanced audio with a driver)? Is it possible to remove it from the system later without any leftovers?
thank you in advance for your answer.

Alain, dear fellow AF DCH driver users:

Since being on Windows 11, there seems to be an issue (with APO handling or sleep modes?) using the latest DCH drivers: Whenever I start a video, be it on FB or YT, the video image will load very fast (DSL 250), but then there is a 5secs delay before the audio starts playing. This startup delay happens always on the first time playing a video in a certain environment, i.e. when playing consecutive vidoes on FB, they seem to NOT have this startup delay anymore. However, when switching over to YT, or then opening FB again, the lag will reappear... any ideas? I found another user who had the same issue, and by un-installing all Realtek type drivers, he fixed the problem, but when re-installing either Realtek or DCH-modded drivers, the issue would reappear...

Thank you! I did run several tests for the center speaker the first time it happened and everything was OK with it. This time though, it was not, which lead me to believe that the problem is in the wire somewhere, since when I moved it, the center speaker started to work normally again. I guess it was a coincidence that the test worked the first time and the movie - not.

I use a Microsoft Wireless Headset and wanted to use this driver for Dolby Atmos. But somehow it does not work for my headset. The driver gets installed properly and I can choose "Dolby Atmos for Gaming" in the start menu. But it tells me that I have to connect a headset or speakers. Is it possible that this driver does not work with USB-/Wireless devices?

For this I recommend APO Driver

Hey,
does anyone happen to know how to setup the "scout radar" in Sound Blaster Connect 720°? I just didn't figure it out, and the toggle ain't working...

Hi Alan,

Thank you for these drivers. I was struggling with R2.80/1/2 that would not work on my new B550M Mortar with ALC1200. Now it is perfect.

Atmos quit working in Windows since Oct so I just found this project now while looking for a fix :)
I still get the green light on my vizio soundbar saying Atmos is working but the rear speakers do not output anything.

I have NVidia GPU with HDMI connected directly to Atmos sound bar and my media player sends bit streaming audio to the sound bar.

I deleted audio drivers and disabled internet. I got the Setup.exe installed and I manually updated my audio device drivers to the drivers in \Driver64 folder.

I think I need to use the HD Audio device and not the AAF Optimus Universal device that appeared but I am seeing the driver is 10.0.19041.264 from Microsoft.

I chose Dolby Atmos Speaker System option when installing Setup.exe but when I run it says I have to plug in headphones to the audio jack. I need HDMI so this isn't working.

I don't know where to go from here, can I please get some direction to get me on the right path?

Gentlemen, I want to apologize in advance for not having released the package in version 9282 yet. The reason is that I'm making some aesthetic changes to the installer, and I'm also doing extensive testing to enable the latest version of Nahimic 3, now running from from APO version 4. Here are real images:

@Alan Finotty, DTS Interactive is an encoder, not decoder, it encodes PCM to DTS Surround 5.1 (aka, DTS Audio, DTS Core).
DTS Interactive: 24bit/48k (HD) x 6 channels @1509kbps (1.5mbps), 503kbps per stereo.

DTS-HD MA and DTS-HD HRA both contain DTS Cores, for support.

NEW DCH DRIVERS RELEASED IN GITHUB
DCH DRIVER VERSION UPDATED TO 6.0.9282.1
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: This driverpack isn't eligible for USB-based Realtek audio chips.

RECOMMENDATION:
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" or "Alan Finotty" 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), select your decoder and deselect the rest.

@Alan Finotty, If I have time I will look into it, maybe that is. At the moment I am focusing on recent changes with my DTS package.

I have recently unlocked the 2nd to last, newest, DTS controller, although its undergoing public testing, for me all working.
I myself have done 100% of the work in the latest package, please ask before using any files.

If you add the files, with permission, I ask you don't accept donates based on the DTS files I provide.

My current package, with optional-additional files, will unlock the entire suit on any device on the system, USB, SPDIF, HDMI etc.

1.png2.png

DTS Custom APO4 Special edition, notice the External Speakers (form factor) override for HDMI-SPDIF. Interactive:X for SPDIF-HDMI.

--

In one of my packages I intend to add the HDMI formats to SPDIF, unlocking SPDIF to its max.

Hi Alan, I apologize in advance for having to report a problem with your latest driver installation. This is related to the installation of the UWP app for Dolby Atmos for speakers not installed when selected at initial installation time. I've tried it twice. But it seems that the UWP app for dolby atmos for speakers is still not installed. Maybe you can check it out. (OS: Newest Windows 21H2) Thanks for the response.
