    It's difficult to say exactly what benefit you would receive. It all depends upon what changes were made to the particular driver. A newer driver might contain bug fixes, stability improvements, better support for newer versions of Windows, performance improvements, or other changes.
    So there is no harm in upgrading? I have the taichi asrock z370 and the drivers for the realtek on their website hasn't been updated since late 2018 but the MS Update Catalog has one from 2019.

    Since you are asking about manually installing drivers from the Update Catalog, I assume that these drivers are not automatically getting installed if you select your audio driver in device manager and choose to update the driver.

    If it is not automatically pulling that update, then it may well be that the driver you already have installed is the best driver for your system.

    I have audio drivers that date back several years that work perfectly on one of my systems so there is no need to upgrade it simply for the sake of upgrading.

    Of course, you could always try this new driver, see if it works, if not, roll back to the previous driver.

    Hmm, I see. I guess I won't update it then if that's the case.

    Thank you for the answer.

    That's probably the best plan. Windows has become very good lately at installing updated drivers wherever needed automatically.

    Hello All, First thank you very much for all this information it has helped me immensely. I do have one issue I hope you can help me with, though. I seem to have lost the sound effects/ enhancements after I was able to upgrade to the UAD driver. I have tried all 3 drivers from the link on the first page. Only the 8501 and 8591 were able to work. I have also tried updating though the device manage as well as using the .exe file. All with a clean install. Any help would be great. Also its both in the Realtek audio control as well as the sound manager that the enhancements/ sound effects are missing.
    Hi,

    I believe if you go back a several pages there is a person who had the same issue including myself and he proposed a solution or fix to what helped him. You would have to read those posts. I myself haven't tried it since i'm using the Realtek Audio Console and happy with this.

    Cumulative Update KB4489899 Windows 10 v1809 Build 17763.379 - Mar. 12


    Cumulative Update KB4489899 Windows 10 v1809 Build 17763.379 - Mar. 12 Windows Update - Windows 10 Forums
    Known issues in this update
    Possible warning for ROG Sonic Studio 3 users(I haven't had any problems yet myself).
    After installing this update on machines that have multiple audio devices, applications that provide advanced options for internal or external audio output devices may stop working unexpectedly. This issue occurs for users that select an audio output device different from the “Default audio device”. Examples of applications that may stop working include:




    • Windows Media Player
    • Realtek HD Audio Manager
    • Sound Blaster Control Panel
    As a temporary solution, change the output of the application to Default in the per-application audio-settings found under Settings > System > Sound> App Volume and device preferences.



    Alternatively, select the “Default Audio Device” in the options provided by the application; please refer to the application’s user-manual for details.



    For example, to set the Default Audio Device in Windows Media Player:




    1. Open Windows Media Player > Tools > Options > Devices.
    2. Select the device and choose Properties.
    3. On the next dialog, from the drop-down menu under Select the Audio Device, choose Default Audio Device from the list.



    Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late March 2019.

    well Cliff S KB4489899 might be a problem on my old HP computer using Realtek ALC888S since it runs LTSC 2019 (v1809) and I have both Speakers and SPDIF (Realtek Digital Output) options available. I will skip KB4489899 and wait for the next CU in late March.

    on another machine using an ASUS M5A78L board (not a ROG board) using Realtek ALC887 and only Speaker output, KB4489899 is fine; running Win10 Pro v1809.

    Hey guys,

    I can see that my manufacturer (Gigabyte) is offering UAD drivers seen here.

    Do I have to install these drivers and then go to the Microsoft Store and install the Audio Console? If yes, I can't seem to find the Realtek Audio Console in my (Dutch) Store app.

    I believe that it becomes available only after you install the UAD drivers.
