Could your please add support for my laptop with these hardwareid
Support already exists.

And Sound settings lose Enchancement tab too.
About the Enhancements tab, because the driver is based on UAD (Universal Audio Driver), by default Realtek does not have this tab. The features were all centered on the UWP (Realtek Audio Console) panel.

I've successfully installed your driver, but I can't choose output device between my laptop speaker and my headphone like I could with default driver.
Open Realtek Audio Console through the Start Menu, click on "Device Advanced Settings" and in the "Playback Device" line, select the bottom option: "Make Front and Rear output devices playback two different audio streams simultaneously".

NEW DCH DRIVERS RELEASED IN MEDIAFIRE
HD AUDIO DRIVER VERSION UPDATED TO 6.0.9357.1
USB AUDIO DRIVER VERSION 6.3.9600.2311
MORE DETAILS IN 1st PAGE

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", "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.
Don't forget to go to the "Changes" button to check the changes of the latest version. :toast:

I probably found a problem. Old sound blaster spdif output reports to directX only 2 channels, as shown in windows tab . Even if I use APO with DDL or DTS Interactive, still reports 2 channels to the game, and game further sends 2 channel audio. If a game has an option to choose 5.1 surround, it will be forced manually- the reason i have DTS Interactive with full 5.1 in GTA, but without in Fortnite, which doesn't have sound options.

Dolby Digital Live with APO DD Home Theatre is showing up only as Dolby Digital, not DDL. Is it ok?
At least it encodes 5.1 wave file into 5.1 spdif - so i suppose it is ok.

The only solution is to make a game think, i have 6 channel spdif. How to do it?

Hi @AAF Optimus ,

unfortunately, the new driver has issues with the Realtek Audio Console, again. "Could not connect to RPC service". Dolby Atmos still isn't working.

I've reverted back to the May 28th update.

I always test DDL with this: https://www2.iis.fraunhofer.de/AAC/multichannel.html

Reuploading File...Done!
Dear Alan, thank you so much for making these audio mods, I am following your works long back since you posted Non DCH drivers, and have come here after the github repository had been taken down. I want to make a small request to you, I am using Dolby Atmos Speaker System for my PC, there is a small issue with your recent mods after you altered "Default.xml" in the dolby folder, the volume leveler is OFF by default in all the modes (i.e, Dynamic, Movie, Music..etc) before it was ON, I even checked with the old mods (especially the builds before 9301) the values inside the xml was <volume-leveler-enable value="1" /> but now in the recent mods its all in '0'

I tried to extract the recent drivers and edited the xml manually as per my need, but after that when I try to install the driver it shows driver signature warning, I strongly guess this is due to signature is removed after I make a change to the xml file. Can you please change the volume leveler values to 1 as it was in the old mods and sign them in the next updates ?

Due to this issue, I am still stuck with the old driver mods. Kindly help me, help us.

Thanks Mr.@AAF Optimus but there's no option for output devices in Advanced Settings, it only has option to seperate input devices, to use built-in laptop mic and headphone's mic.
Here's my Realtek Control Panel, there's no option to choose under DTS Sound Effect

And no option for Playback devices

I've used Hibit Uninstaller to uninstall Audio Driver, used DriverStoreExplore to delete any driver left, used CCleaner to clean registry many times, but no luck.

Completely uninstalled previous version and re-installed your newest update. Now there is no audio playing. New Realtek Audio Console show new options but still no playback devices, I've tried Disable front panel jack on and off, unplug and re-plug in the headphone, no luck. No Dolby or DTS format in Advanced tab. Spatial Sound showed up tho. I've inluced some pictures with DriverStore Explorer after installing your driver. Thank you so much for your support. Sorry if I've asked too much.

Thank you for the quick fix, I checked the XML and a small correction is there. I understand you used find and replace option in a text editor and changed all the volume leveler values from 0 to 1, but you forgot to keep the OFF mode, i.e <profile type="off"> to <volume-leveler-enable value="0" />

Now what happens is, the volume leveler is still left as ON even though I turn off the Dolby Atmos completely, hope you could understand my point. Sorry for requesting changes again and again, but I want to contribute the perfection to the amazing mod of yours.

Note : <profile type="off"> is present twice in the XML, make sure you change the volume leveler values to 0 for both of them.

This new Realtek effects processing library is not yet mature. It was recently introduced in certain UAD WHQL packages and therefore turn stir work or not.

Always thank you for your work.

No sound after installing this version (9357) driver.
When I roll back to the previous version (9344) of the driver, the sound works normally. This driver does not properly recognize my motherboard's built-in sound device. (GIGABYTE B550 AROUS ELITE, ALC1200 codec)

The GIGABYTE logo disappears from the Realtek Audio Console, and power options that were not previously displayed are displayed.

Dear Alan, I tried the new driver you uploaded it now. Checked for the Dolby XML Files, everything was perfect.. BUT.. the APO processing modes are not getting registered as it should be while installing the driver. All the fields are blank and due to this, Dolby + Realtek Console UWP apps are not working :(

DTS Sound Unbound seems to not be working for me anymore. No matter how many times I reinstall the drivers, it keeps saying that I need a license. How can I fix this? I've made sure to disable auto-update in the Microsoft store and developer mode is enabled.

Thank you for fixing the file, Alan. Another particular issue is persisting in all the new mods, which is Advanced Settings in Realtek Console App is missing. That is, Loudness Equalization, Equalizer, Pitch Shift, Karaoke, Reverb effects are completely missing from Realtek UWP app.

My chip is ALC 887, OS is Windows 10 (19044.1741). I have completely removed the drivers via Driver Store Explorer and Display Driver Uninstaller, even installed the drivers with Defender and internet connection turned off, yet the new mod is still having this issue. The last perfectly working mod for me is "AAFOptimusAudioPack 9301".

Please help.
