This is one of the rarest, hard to find drivers for Analog Devices SoundMax Audio chips with included BlackHawk control panel which features SonicFocus audio enhancements for deeper bass and richer sound. I’m using a rather ancient ASUS Rampage II Gene motherboard with ADI AD2000b audio chip and these drivers are the latest I could ever find with BlackHawk panel (others are the same version without BlackHawk). They are specified as Windows 7 drivers, however I’m just using them on Windows 8.1 64bit and everything works perfectly. ASUS switched to Realtek after this so everyone still on SoundMax are stuck with this one I’ve been hosting it on my OneDrive for ages but forgot to make a blog post about it. Hope this will help people get it working again.

This download installs version 6610 of the SoundMAX* audio driver for Intel® Desktop Boards.
Installation went without any problems, device is detected as SoundMax HD and SonicFocus audio enhancements function as well. This is good news for all the SoundMax users! To enhance compatibility of playing music in media player while playing games on Win10 with SoundMax, do the following: Right click volume icon next ot the clock and select “Playback devices”. Select active SoundMax HD device and click Properties button and then go to Advanced tab. Change the sampling to 24 bit and 96000 Hz and click OK. This resolved music playback corruption in MusicBee while playing Infinifactory. It might apply to other games as well.
I tried installing the unmodified driver with setup.exe and it went through fine. Installation finished, I rebooted, Soundmax detected my 5.1 setup and configured it. Nevertheless, there was no sound from the speakers.
Soundmax audio test did not provide an error (other than no sound). Windows speaker audio test provided the error “Could not play test tone” (or something similar). I had to revert back to the Windows HD audio driver to get sound back (Asus P5K Deluxe WiFi/AP with the AD1988B on Windows 10 64-bit).
Hey guys, thanks for sharing your experience here. I am using AD ADI2000b integrated audio on my ASUS P5Q3 deluxe wifi-@n and am overwhelmed again and again by the power of the Sonic Focus enhancement and the integrated equalizer. However it is this enhancement that seems to cause audio stutter whenever an additional audio playback channel is closed. Example: I am playing music on Windows Mediaplayer and in parallel open a video clip in Media Player Home Classic.
Once the clip ends or I close the MPC-HC, there is a short, but extremely annoying stutter in audio playback. Checking mmsys. Paint Shop Pro Free Download Mac Os X here. cpl, Windows confirms there are problems with the AD ADI2000b device’s playback and automatically disables the Sonic Foucs enhancement, after which playback works just fine, but the enhancement is unavailable Anyone has an idea how to have both: Stutterless playback and the great capabilities of the Sonic Focus audio enhancement?
That would be awesome!
