Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (PC) Audio is not workin

The in-game audio is not working at all, no music in the menus, no effects or nothing while playing (Microsoft Live sound does work, though).

This is the environment:

  • How do I get all parts of my HUD to stick around in DX:HR
  • Why do I randomly get more Estus Flasks?
  • How to increase mouse sensitivity in Skyrim?
  • How can I change the difficulty during the game in The Witcher?
  • How do I set up Braid to use a gamepad on PC?
  • Why does my Xbox One controller not work on Dark Souls 3 PC?
    • Steam client
    • Windows 8 64 bits
    • ASUS P7P55D integrated sound card for audio

    The sound card is connected to a receiver through SPDIF. Everything else works without a problem, both in 5.1 (movies) and stereo (music and games). I do not use AC3 or any encoder for 5.1 gaming. All of the other games I have do not have any sound issue. I have also tried to connect headphones to the corresponding jack in the sound card with the same bad result.

  • Why was everything unlocked the first time I started Portal 2 coop?
  • What are all the cheats in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
  • Are there crash logs for Skyrim?
  • Keyboard problem with Skyrim
  • Fallout 4 will not get past the initial loading screen
  • I'm bored of the Drake Sword, when will I find a decent replacement?

    I finally found the problem. It seems that I didn’t realize, but actually the AC3 encoder was starting alongside the game and not processing the audio properly. I disabled the AC3 encoder to process PCM and now it works, although now AAC audio won’t work with my player. At least now I have something.
