I have a laptop using the ICE Power Audio Wizard. It's on Realtek HDA 8514 so what version can I use that's more recent? Can I use UAD or not? Anyways thanks

Update: It appears FF00 works, I know ICE is a seperate ASUS program but thought the driver itself needed support, maybe the generics do already? I know Nahimic had to be FF03 with my ASUS B350-F

what is the model number of the ASUS laptop, waitandhope123?

ASUS has released their version of the v6.0.1.8591 HDA (nonUAD) driver near the end of April 2019 on their web site for ASUS laptops.  ivanRF listed the 8591 driver on his latest ASUS drivers for windows 10 page.  that one should work with the latest version of the ICESound tool, which is v1.0.13.1.

edit: there's also a v6.0.1.8627 HDA driver from ASUS but that one was made specifically for ASUS workstation & server PCs (though this specific download has both 8491 & 8627 HDA drivers contained in the zip file - look in the "Win10_Win10RS5_2019_x64" folder of that zip file which has the 8627 HDA drivers, the "Server2016_x64" folder has 8491 instead; I don't know why ASUS packed both 8491 and 8627 drivers in that zip file)

Realtek HD Audio Driver 6.0.1.8683 WHQL

8683_FF0C_FF00_FF01_FF03_FF04_FF06_FF10

Win 7,10 x32/64
PackageVersion = PG470
DriverVer= 04/16/2019, 6.0.1.8683

 

I recently found something really strange with the 8683 WHQL FFxx HDA drivers.

It seems the HDXRT.inf and the other INF files included in 8683 WHQL HDA have added the following entries:

[APODebug.AddReg]
HKLM,%APO_DEBUG_REG%,SecureAudioEngineProcess,0x00010001,0x00000000
HKLM,%APO_DEBUG_REG%,DisableProtectedAudioDG,0x00010001,0x00000001

Normally these "APO Debug" registry entries are found in the INF files in the beta/non-whql based Realtek HDA drivers but it seems Realtek forgot to remove them in 8683 WHQL.  However, Realtek fixed that little mistake and removed the APO Debug entries in the 8688 WHQL and later HDA FFxx drivers.

I didn't really need to contact them.

upon further review, it seems only the 8683 FF00 & FF01 versions have the "APO debug" entries in the INF files like HDARt.inf & HDXRT.inf and other INF files.

The HDART.inf & HDXRT.inf files from higher 8683 FFxx versions like FF03, FF04, etc. do not have the APO Debug entries.

I have a Q405UA-BI5T7 which I got from BB I upgraded all the drivers from Ivan's site I'm using the FF00 8703 and the ICE app still appears to work? What the heck? Is it driver based or not. 

Update: Maybe some of the options work, I know widener works and loudness, I will try installing another version later and testing things more

what version of the ICESound app are you using?  is it the latest version like v1.0.13.1 listed on ivanrf's web site?  if not, upgrade the ICESound app to the latest version.

starting with the 8600 HDA drivers (like 8603, 8609, 8612 & above), Realtek created new INF files (HDART4ICE.inf for 32bit, HDXRT4ICE.inf for 64bit) that will only install the ICESound APO DLL & ICESound service EXE files on supported ASUS laptops & motherboards.  Before 8603, the older Realtek HDA drivers (FFxx) had HDART4.inf & HDXRT4.inf files that will install & register the ICESound files onto many Realtek audio chipsets, even onto non-ASUS systems (and non-supported ASUS boards like my friend's Asus M5A78L-M LE/USB3 board which the ICEsound app does not support but the ICESoundService64.exe file from the Realtek audio driver keeps loading at startup - I wanted to get rid of it).  In 8612 & higher, the HDART4.inf & HDXRT4.inf files no longer install the ICESound integration files including the ICESoundService64.exe file.

unrelated note - someone did obtain the 8703 UAD "generic" driver that includes newer HDXRT.inf and HDX_GenericExt_RTK.inf files (these are hard to come by)
