    Realtek has a FTP server with bleeding-edge UAD packages. The credentials were known since 2016, but they were changed in 21st February, this year. Then @alanfox2000 was served a DMCA takedown on his GitHub repositories where he harvested whole UAD packages and individual UAD components respectively.

    I have the latest realtek drivers installed and I have every enhancement expect speaker fill. I configured my speakers to 5.1 and the test sound comes out on all speakers but when playing anything they act like 2.1 and I understand the speaker fill allows to have all speakers play but I don't have that option. I can only get 5.1 if the output for the video, music player or game is configured to 5.1.

    OS: Windows 1909
    HDA DRIVER VERSION: 6.0.8874.1
    Mobo: Asus ROG Strix B350F

    Most audio apps on pc play audio in 5.1 today either it is mp3 or flac or something other. Aimp and Gom Players for example. If you don't have 5.1 sound play option on your speakers then you must use these audio players. For video it is unfortunate that no video player can force stereo to play in 5.1 ..

    My philips 90 watt 5.1 speakers got an option to play 5.1 regardless of the input.

    Latest Realtek HDA version is 6.0.8899.1

    But that doesn't explain why the "speaker fill" option is missing. I want to know why it's missing?

    If speaker fill option was working with previous driver version and not now , blame windows 10 because it overwrite some settings on your driver and make it useless sometimes. I faced such problem with windows drivers. Edit your windows group policy and set it not to install drivers and then uninstall current driver and install latest driver after reboot. And see if problem still persists.

    Hi,

    To virtualize the sound on all your speakers regardless of their numbers/type and whatever the content played, you must enable the Surround setting in SS3 Win32/Legacy app but you must use HDA - FF03 drivers.

    Unfortunately, my sonic studio 3 has not been working. I keep getting this error about my system not supported or audio driver isn't properly installed. I've done some research on that to get it to work but I'm at a lost.

    Try to switch to the UAD drivers (and install SS3 UWP app) by following scrupulously the CLEAN INSTALL then INSTALL process of Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3) from my latest update post.

    So I followed the instructions and now I'm getting "Can not connect to RPC service" and I enable surround in SS3 and tested with a few apps like VLC when I played a movie it played 5.1 but MediaMonkey played music in 2.1, I had to change the output plugin that enables 5.1 and when I play anything on firefox it's 2.1 so I guess it doesn't recognize browsers.

    So I recently upgraded my cpu/motherboard. I did a fresh install of windows. I have TUF Gaming x570 Plus (Wifi) motherboard. I originally downloaded the Realtek drivers from ASUS's website. However, the realtek audio console would say "Cannot connect to RPC service." So I found this website and followed the guide on page 54. I uninstalled the old drivers and installed the RTK driver fine, but the realtek audio console now will not download from the windows store. It keeps giving an error. I'm about to uninstall this motherboard and return it. Am I doing something wrong?
