Vought F8 Crusader/Mirage 2000 sounds

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just downloaded Roland Laborie's great Chance-Vought F8 Crusader and i'm surprised to learn it doesn't come with a soundset. Can anyone help? I have a B-52 P&W J57-P soundset so far, will that do? I know the F8 had J57-P-20A's so is there anything more specific, or anything in development, or will the B-52 J57-P's suffice?Also, what is the best Mirage 2000 soundset out? I have and old CFS2 converted FS2002 one.Please get back to me if you can help, thanks.

I'm still in search of some decent sounds but if your interested in helping, i have these at the moment - will they do?:m2k5fsound.zip & m2k_soundup.zip for the Mirage 2000;b52-turbojet.zip for the Chance-Vought F8 Crusader,If you're interested, please have a look at them and see if they match to the real engines. It was quite hard to find these files in the first place but i believe the first two i found at either Flightsim or Avsim, maybe even something like FSPlanet, and the other one i found at Classic British Files.Please, I'd really like an expert opinion on this :-). Thanks a lot.

Having lived with B-52s (D), early KC-135s, and 100-generation fighters that used the J-57, I would expect that a B-52 sound set, if it was done right for a B-52, would sound nothing like an F-8. There is a big difference between the sound mix of eight J-57s in pods. four J-57s in pods, and one J-57 with an afterburner and a long intake, at least from outside. The sound of B-52s. the scream dominates over the roar of the gases. In a single engine fighter, the noise is mostly roar mid-range and lower frequencies, and when the afterburner kicks, BOOM! and the whine of turbines is lost. I'm not much of a jet fighter collector, so I don't know where to look for a Crusader sound. To borrow from another model, however. I would look for a late '50s single engine fighter with an afterburner, even if it was the wrong engine (F-100, 102, 104, 105, 106, or maybe an A-4). Not a turbofan, nor a multi-engine.
