I installed 1903 and started playing music. I heard an occasional cracking but it was way more subdued than before. I applied the sbx_fix patch. restarted, and have been listening to music for the last hour plus and no discernible sound issues whatsoever.

Apparently the patch worked for me yet again.

You have an Intel based system which may be why is works better for you. I don't know... You got lucky... I didn't got lucky... possibilities many. At least I found a way to fix it for myself.
If my experience can help somebody I'll be happy.

I'm using W10 1809 with a ryzen 1600/ax370 gaming 3 and for now my card is working fine after I aplied the patch posted here, but with some new entries because in my case cthdb\CodecConfig have some others registry adresses, I just need to turn decoder off if going to use headphones. In the future if I had some trouble because of some update, maybe you solution help with it, thanks!

I didn't think about the difference being I am running off an intel based system, interesting though.
The thing is quite a few people have talked about the pop/crack issue and the patch not working at all. At one time I ran into an issue where I had to reapply the patch like 3 times (with restarts) to get it finally working.
I do have a similar audio issue when using my Steam Link to play games on my TV in the living room. I hadn't used the link in so long that it had to download like 4 updates and took about 10 mins to do so, after that I got a warning to load updated sound file dll's through the prompt on the computer screen. I went in to check it and there were no prompts. I was able to get the game running but would hear the occasional pop/crack. I am hoping that the next time I start it up I will get the prompts again and be able to load the appropriate Steam client dll's.

Awaiting feedback...
Tried this yesterday but driver was invalid for my card, as I´m using a ZXR. Too bad, I loved the idea of having updated drivers from the SBX AE5. Cheers

Would the sound processing effects still work with optical out ?

Yes, as long as you tick the "Play stereo mix to digital output" under the "Advanced Features" tab.

Keep the "Speakers (Sound Blaster Z)" as the default audio device, not the "SPDIF-Out (Sound Blaster Z)." Selecting the optical out as the audio device will bypass the processing effects.
