    I've been running this driver for a long time, with no issues. Just recently, I had to restore my computer. I then reinstalled the driver, which was an older version, and sound works fine. I can't for the life of me, get the microphone to work though. I've made sure that the front panel microphone box is unchecked, made sure the window settings are correct as well. What can I do?


    • CarvedInside26 Mar 2015 @ 20:31

      Try reinstalling the driver. Try different drivers. Check if the microphone works with onboard audio card.


      • JP27 Mar 2015 @ 02:51

        I believe I may have found the problem. My headset wire, has a knick, and it looks as though the microphone wire has been cut. I've ordered a new headset, which I believe will fix the issue.

    I have Asus Xonar d1 and drivers 1.75a noticed that i can´t enable prologic 2 unless i disable speakers from windows ,using windows 8.1 pro 64bit,when i disable speakers i can use prologic 2 but cant change speaker setup or channels


    • CarvedInside28 Mar 2015 @ 00:15

      Which audio panel are you using for enabling Dolby Pro Logic II? Have you tried with previous driver releases like v1.64 or v1.70?


      • Venla28 Mar 2015 @ 15:07

        i tried previous and all worked fine now i have 1.75a c-media 1822 with gx enabled


        • Venla28 Mar 2015 @ 15:25

          got it working just followed instructions bout installing addons and older c-media panel now working ok


          • CarvedInside28 Mar 2015 @ 18:18

            I see, thanks for the feedback. It's probably a issue with the C-Media panel that's included with v1.75a drivers.

    Hi!, i currently have a 5.1 headset Real (4 speakers per side) in the original menu Asus, can amplify the stereo headphones, but it is impossible to have to select 5.1 output, is there any way to amplify the headphones in 5.1 as in the case of stereo headphones?


    • CarvedInside28 Mar 2015 @ 18:38

      Are you referring to headphones impedance options? That's not possible to use that in a 5.1 setup.
      If you need a higher volume you could raise each channel volume slider from the Mixer tab.

    Hello - I'm really liking this driver, unfortunately it doesn't fix my big issue with the standard driver. Basically, I have to toggle onboard audio on/off through BIOS in order to use my Asus Xonar Essence ST card. If my onboard audio is enabled it will seem like the xonar works when you look at the output (well, animations) of the sound, but no sound comes through my headphones. In short, I have to turn onboard audio off in the BIOS to use my headphones. I would love to be able to switch back and forth between them (and yes, this is easily possible, except there is no sound coming from the headphones, even though sound animations are going up down up down). I don't know if there's a fix for this... I've looked. So I was hoping you'd have the answer to it <3


    • CarvedInside28 Mar 2015 @ 18:54

      Hi. Which OS do you have? If you disable the onboard audio card in Device Manager, does the sound come out of the Xonar card or not?
      By output animations I assume you are referring to the device output's visualization in Windows Volume->Playback Devices. But does that correspond to the Speakers ASUS Xonar ST Audio Device?
      Check that you have set "Speakers ASUS Xonar ST Audio Device" as default in Playback Devices when you have the onboard card enabled and check in the audio/video player settings that the output device is either Windows Default or the Xonar ST card. If those settings are correct you should look into updating your motherboard BIOS if newer versions are available.


      • Mattias30 Mar 2015 @ 18:22

        Hi, thanks for the reply.

        I'm running Windows 7 on an ASUS p8z68 board, latest BIOS driver (although, it was released 2012).

        I tried disabling it in the Device Manager, but it made no difference unfortunately. I've also tried removing Realtek Audio Driver just in case, but no dice.

        Yes indeed it does correspond to the correct audio device, it's even showing the animations in the Xonar Audio Center application.

        When I boot to linux it works just fine to switch between the devices, of course there's no special driver installed then, just some standard one.


        • CarvedInside31 Mar 2015 @ 23:42

          Update your Windows if you've haven't applied any updates. Try plugging the ST card in different PCI slots. Try different UNi Xonar driver versions. If none of these help, I think it's an issue with your motherboard (which could have been fixed through Bios updates if ASUS cared). Here is a similarly strange issue that's was caused by the ASUS motherboard.


          • Mattias07 Apr 2015 @ 18:56

            Hello, I've recently fixed the issue. It was indeed a BIOS update that was required, in fact it also fixed another issue with my new keyboard which occurred when dual booting.

            It's my bad really, I was looking at the "wrong" motherboard, you see, there's an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO and an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN3. I got the latter, while the former has no BIOS updates since 2012. But since I didn't add in the GEN3 part upon googling for drivers I ended up at http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z68V_PRO/ instead of http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z68V_PROGEN3/

            Not the most obvious thing unless you remember that your motherboard is a "GEN3 fix", but nonetheless, it's working now!


            • CarvedInside08 Apr 2015 @ 18:27

              Thanks for letting me know. I am pleased to know that the BIOS update fixed the issue.

    The drivers UNi Xonar 1816/1822 v1.75a r2 work with Omega Claro Halo card in Windows 10 technical preview, official drivers don't.

    Returning to work Asus Xonar DX 7.1 on Windows 10 TP: I install a sound driver for Asus Xonar DX 7.1 an account! After rebooting the system driver and a sound card put the shell without any problems. Volume control system is operating normally. Reboot the system: Volume control system does not work (red cross), and writes that the Audio Service is not running.
    Actually Service Audio and its related services are running third. Shell sound card also works not fully (it volume control also lowered to zero) and not specified as included columns. But the sound is! The driver itself in the Device Manager in the norm. Get out of the account on the local - Again, all restored (Volume Control system works and the shell is also working completely). Reboot the system again all repeats. Question - what does the accounting and record to Local Service and shell Audio sound cards, and how to solve this problem?
    Signature verification is disabled. The bottom line is that the very sound driver is digitally signed, and it works fine, but the shell of the sound card is not working properly, as well as volume control system. But at the same time the sound system is (and ASUS Xonar spat on the volume control system, although it does not work in the mode ASIO). All of this is due to the timing and account). If you run the Fix the problem, then the volume control system begins to work, but after a reboot the problem back to square one.
    As you can see on the spoiler - the sound goes, but volume control is not active.
    Actually you need to correct only the inf file for the normal driver installation on Windows 10 TP.


  7. suserg203 Apr 2015 @ 10:41

    Supplement to ask questions -
    Skin condition of the sound driver:
    Well, in general for normal shell Asus Xonar DX 7.1 you just need to fix the parameters of the program. I can not quite understand the installation process of the driver?
    PS: For Asus Xonar DX 7.1 in Windows 10 TP suitable drivers:
    UNi Xonar 1815 v1.64 r2
    Asus Driver DX Win 8
    Asus Driver DX Win 8


  8. unknown06 Apr 2015 @ 18:19

    Thank you so much for creating this driver, and thank you even more for keeping updating and working on it. You're amazing


  9. SSS06 Apr 2015 @ 20:22

    Can i use 1.75a with STX II or it's only 1.75b ?


  10. Jose07 Apr 2015 @ 21:18

    I'm new to all this - I bought a Xonar D1 to be used for digitizing about 45 years of analog music - I have a problem when I set to "RECORD" because all the options that should be at the bottom of the available "Slide" controls (SPDIF, Mic, Line, Mix, Wave, and Aux) are absent from their lineup. What's wrong? I have an HP-dc5700 and the on-board sound card is not dissabled (don't know how to do that).


    • CarvedInside13 Apr 2015 @ 17:29

      What OS do you have? Which drivers have you tried?
      Try with both the original drivers and Uni Xonar drivers and report back


  11. Peter Griffin08 Apr 2015 @ 11:39

    Hello guys,
    I have a question regarding the Xonar D1 (It's got nothing to do with software but the support couldn't help me).
    The Xonar D1 features two different kinds of AD converter. Front-out (For stereo speaker) is connected with the better one, the rest with the not as good ones.
    I am wondering which of the AD converter is used for Front-Panel output.


  12. Jose09 Apr 2015 @ 17:46

    Hello again. Spent several hours last night reading through a lot of posts and comments regarding the Xonar D1 card - Was not able to relate/understand 99.9% of the discussions, but it did become clear to me you are providing enormous/selfless service to untold numbers of people - ASUS should hire you, or at least reward your dedicated work somehow. Now, my only purpose for using my D1 is to digitise my analog music (Cassette, Reel/Reel, and LPs). No gaming needs, no 2.0 to 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 format upshifts. I got the D1 because its Smart Volume Normalizer function will help me with a major problem in my tapes: lots of up/down signal/volume changes. But I have to be able to record from my Cassettes, Reel/Reels, and LPs, first! Again, thank you for all the dedicated/free work you do, and I hope you will be able to help me with my problems.


    • Jose13 Apr 2015 @ 20:00

      Hello again. I have downloaded the required Uni Drivers for my Xonar D1/Win 7/64 - UNi Xonar 1822 v1.75a r2.exe ??? - I hope it's the right driver. Now, the only way I know to install drivers is to execute the file and follow the prompts, but reading through the posts, I've noticed that maybe I'll have to make decisions about add-ons and what-nots I'm afraid I have no idea about so, is there a tutorial somewhere I can go read for instructions about how to proceed? I'm planning on disabling both the D1 card and drivers, remove the card, and any/all software. Then I'll restart my PC without the card - so there's no trace left of it having been there, turn it off, reinstall the D1, and then execute the 1822.exe, and hope to install the drivers and be good to go. Does that sound like the way to go with this?


      • Jose13 Apr 2015 @ 20:40

        OK, this is a little bit later from my reply above. Found an Installation Guide, but something in the steps confused me: "Download the archive corresponding with the drivers only archive corresponding with the UNi Xonar drivers you wish to install (1.75a and 1.72 drivers". I believe I downloaded "75a r2.exe" but is that all I need? what about the "1.72 drivers" part? To which part doe the "Unpack the archive, preferably to desktop for ease of use" refers to - 1.75a or 1.72? I apologize for being so uneducated on these matters - I was a Fire Control Electronics Technician once, but that was over 40 years ago, and today's electronic gadgets no longer have vacuum tubes.

        LE:Apologies again: That all came from Possible Solution #1(16.03.2012):


        • Jose13 Apr 2015 @ 20:59

          Ok, I think it all makes sense now? The 1.75a part is the archive I need to “Unpack (archive), preferably to desktop for ease of use” and the 1.72 drivers only.7z is the actual drivers themselves? - Sorry Theo, I inadvertently replied to your space.


        • CarvedInside13 Apr 2015 @ 21:12

          The file you've downloaded is good for either UNI Xonar v1.75a or UNi Xonar v1.72 drivers. Both need the exact same files.


      • CarvedInside13 Apr 2015 @ 21:08

        Yes you've downloaded the right driver. The UNi Xonar installer options are optional, you don't need to make any decisions if you don't know or don't understand what those options mean. Regarding the installation guide you are referring to, that's only when the installation fails and the drivers aren't installed. While you might not get an error when installing, you would know that there was a issue with the installation as playing audio files through the Xonar card would not work and you would not have access to ASUS Audio Centre to control the Xonar card, then you would have to try one of the possible solutions presented there.


  13. theo10 Apr 2015 @ 05:29

    ive been running Windows 10 since it released with DG in my system, and the latest driver has worked fully through each build so far (im on 10041) ive had no issues with the settings app (c-media low dsp) or the functionality of the card itself using your drivers. Im not sure if you have someone internally checking up on this, but i figured id report my personal findings so far. my rig is a C2Q Q9650 with 8gm DDR3 and 2 GTS 450's in SLI with a xonar DG PCI card on my rig, i have intel ICH10 chipset as well if it helps at all... love this driver guys its kept me from buying a new card for a long time now.


    • CarvedInside12 Apr 2015 @ 16:31

      Thanks for the feedback. If you can reply with some details like if you are using analog or SPDIF output and how many channels are you using?


  14. Night13 Apr 2015 @ 01:30

    Hello CarvedInsinde,

    i have a Problem. I cant use my microphone in Valve Games like Counterstrike Global Offensive with UNiXonar Drivers, but with Original Asus Drivers it works. But i want to use your Driver, because it feels better and the Sound is better imo. Pls help me


    • CarvedInside13 Apr 2015 @ 17:35

      Hello. I don't see why it would be a problem with UNi Xonar drivers. I think it's some configuration issue. Which OS do you have? Which version of UNi Xonar drivers have you tried? Which original drivers have you tried? If you look in Steam->Settings->Voice, which device is listed under "Record (audio input) device"? Your microphone is connected to front panel or to the back of the card? If you use Windows record, does it record the sound coming from microphone when using UNi Xonar drivers?


  15. Jose13 Apr 2015 @ 20:56

    Ok, I think it all makes sense now? The 1.75a part is the archive I need to "Unpack (archive), preferably to desktop for ease of use" and the 1.72 drivers only.7z is the actual drivers themselves?
