As you know we have already released an update to our speakers that increase volume and sound quality. As you know speakers sound much better after the update but there is definitely room for improvement. With this guide we want to let you test different settings for V speakers that make sound richer! This is not the fix for Windows sound distortion (That we will address with Realtek and ACL directly!)
Before we start I would like to thank @Marius_Hoppmann for spending his time on weekend to come up with perfect settings and this guide with me!
Once we decide the best settings with community we will push them out to everyone with driver update!
DISCLAIMER: This is an advanced tutorial. Proceed at your own risk!
PIMP MY SOUND TUTORIAL
This tutorial was created so that everyone can have the same settings on their V so we can compare them equally.
For this operation you will need:
latest audio drivers - if you don’t have them yet, download the package here: Driver updates 15.12
File with different audio settings. Get it here: AudioFX.reg
Let’s get started.
Once you have installed the driver update, please download this file: AudioFX.reg
(Just do not touch it yet )
Now press at the same time Windows-Key+R. This will open “Run” Window.
If necessary clear the textbox and write: regedit
In the marked box copy over this text:
and hit Enter!
This should open the following folder just as in the screenshot.
Now you have to find which is your realtek audio. The right id is the one, that contains a folder called “FxProperties”.
Open this folder and now copy the ID. It looks like this: e18b0f00-e3c2-411d-b0f2-05d333a61992.
Now you can close regedit.
ID IN THIS PICTURE IS FROM MY V. EACH V HAS A UNIQUE ID SO MAKE SURE TO COPY YOURS
Open the downloaded file (AudioFX.reg), right click and hit EDIT. (to open file you need to select it -> right click -> edit)
In the top you find a similar looking path, just like the one we have been at before.
Replace the “ENTER-ID-HERE” with your ID you just copied.
Now the top line should like this (just with your ID):
If thats correct then save the file, and double click it (once you close the text editor select the file and double click it then click yes to what comes). Confirm that you want to make this changes to registry and done.
Now you can open Realtek Manager (in the taskbar is a loudspeaker icon)
go to Soundeffect and choose 1 of 5 settings in the Menu:
This is what you will get upon completion of the guide.
Please test them with various songs/videos/games.
Note: Sound still may be clipping thats another issue were solving. Right now the focus should be about the sound spectrum, bass, treble, etc…
Which sound profile do you like the most?
- Eve 1
- Eve 2
- Eve 3
- Eve 4
- Eve 5
- Other (I found a MUCH better setup and you must hear it out!)
Thanks a lot for taking time! This will not solve windows sounds distortion issue but will improve audio quality further!
We will be solving distortion issue coming week with Realtek and Speaker supplier.
