I missed Realtek ALC-8xx/26x HD X-Fi@Gamespirit so much on modern laptop:cry: So I decided to port the effects that I use to windows 10

Features:
1) Realtek EQ
2) Dolby
3) Sonic Focus

This package doesn't include Intel SST (BT, MIC, USB) drivers. Install them before using this driver.

How to install?
1) Remove all Realtek Audio and modern APOs in device manager and use DriverStoreExplorer to force delete them
2) Disconnect internet
3) Reboot and disable driver signature enforcement
4) Download and unzip the folder to anyplace
5) Readme.txt

Tested on:
Lenovo Thinkbook 16 G4+ (speaker and 3.5mm are working)

Why no XXX effect that you want?
Because I use these only, and skill issue also

Credits to:
1) Gamespirit for Dolby and Sonic Focus stuff
2) Lenovo Legion Y760 for Realtek driver (don't ask me why y760)
3) FX Configurator for simplifying the testing process

To Lenovo:
Your modern laptops have crap sound effect, please get one IdeaPad S410p and compare!

Really need to admit that DDP has more powerful effect than PCEE4 7.2.8000.17 with similar optimizer tuning

your custom drivers look to have more features than the ones im useing now im useing these https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/making-audio-enhancers-work-on-windows.244309/ do you have a solution that would work with any usb audio device for full 5.1 audio the ones i use now work great but i want more features more choices in optimization with windows than what the ones i use now have

this is assumeing your useing the fx configurator methiod thats the easiest for me to work with

Can someone assist me to get it working please?
It installs drivers, but I think not for the HDMI device. It's the Windows driver and Dolby has no effects to the sound.

Mainboard is an Asrock N100-DC with Realtek ALC897.
Clean W10, Intel Chipset driver, your Realtek drivers with disabled driver signature, Intel Graphic driver.
SST is deactivated in BIOS.

Help would be really appreciated.

use this one instead i diddnt need to install any drivers https://puresoftapps.blogspot.com/2018/04/realtek-apo-driver.html choose dolby digital plus home theater for spdif and hdmi devices its the updated brother to home theater v4

keep in mind for me i modifyed a spdif to usb connection i diddnt mess with any reltalk software and when i was useing hdmi i simply switched my audio driver to microsofts instead of the one preinstalled with my gpu then modified that it worked wonders

Thank you SOOO much.
It works!

I've needed some time to understand the installation process and the google sheet. So many apps and options.
But it works now and the real gamechanger seems to be the app "FX Configurator", which can modify all (?) drivers.

Thank you very much, @nicegirl05

it dose not modify the driver instead modifying the windows direct sound device so it actually applys to the device not the driver aswell fx is used to hook the drivers to the device not modify theme these are real apo drivers made for windows back in the day again its a updated brother to dolby home theater v4 a suite of dolby solutions to make surround sound on laptops easier includeing dolby digital live out dolby pro logic 2x and dolby volume if you want u can also use dts connect for dts support :) and ofc it took me YEARS to get all of this working on my gameing laptop so i can have a gameing pc and a home theater in one

also in the dolby digital plus profile config turn on volume levleing it uses advanced tech to bring lossless to lossy codecs it works wonders i keep it enabled on everythang and i use the eq open for the least amount of compression

aswell one last thang sorry lel for live encodeing youll be fine if its not object baced surround if it is use the free virtual soundcard fxsound and enable it when u need object baced surround sound (only in vedio games) besides that 5.1 / 7.1 anythang well work fine i also use mpc-BE for support for any codec it bitstreams dolby or dts anythang to pcm or ieee float depending on the codec aswell supports ALL open sorce codecs i use it for my music library
