Its *excellent*As afar as Im concerned these are the best sounds available in FS9 for an airliner :)They are superior to the original PMDG sounds...easily. Des Braban has done an excellent job!Particularly well done is the distinctive takeoff whine as you advance the throttles and the authnetic-sounding wind-noise.But what I like most is that this is a "clean" soundset. Many other soundsets out there are good...but you can hear peoples voices because they have been recorded on a real flight. So when you activate reverse thrust you hear a conversation!But this sound is hi-quality throughout...get it :)Of course sound is a matter of personal taste but Im sure you will agree with me after downloading it and flying around!:)

------------------------------------------------------------------------Also the R recirc fan sound is too high I think.------------------------------------------------------------------------You can easily fix that in Windows XP.You prob know all this but just in case :) :1. Find the sound and make a backup copy. 2. After that right-click on the sound file. Point to "Record". The Sound Recorder will appear. 3. Press the play button and then point to "Effects" and then "Decrease Volume".4. Keep repeating step 3 until the volume is decreased to a suitable level. Now save the file.5. Start up your FS9 and take the NG737 for a test hop!It will take a little experimentation (repeating steps 3,4,& 5) and then it will be at a level you like in the sim.

Hi I use the Des Braban sounds for my PMDG 738 and have found it to be just awesome. Much better than anything else. The PMDG sounds were good, but this one is much better.CheersBob

His sounds are spot on! I would say that they are the most realistic sounds I've heard for a airliner in MSFS.Mike T.

The AP disco sound is still wrong though. PMDG's is too fast and high-pitched, and this one is different as well. I actually tried tweaking them to sound right, but the #### computer kept locking up, so I gave up. Doesn't like tweaking sounds too much I guess, LOL. Still in search of a realistic AP disco sound. Might just get one from a video I have and edit it. Go to http://www.a340.net and watch a couple of the Boeing cockpit videos there. One has a real good disco at the beginning. It's not an NG, but the sound is the same.

Thanks for advice - have installed sounds - they're great especially the takeoff

I don't mean to offend (and I know the community hates honesty in any shape or form, so I apologize in advance) but these sound nothing like a CFM56-7 engine.I should add that the startup and shutdown come from a DC-10. D'oh!Have a nice day! :)

Best in Class. The level of realism on approach as the jets speed up to offset flaps and and nose up is scary. Never had this simulated before and it really adds to the experience.Noel

Eric, I agree, while I liked the sound set very much I have to say that this does not sound like a 737. I will probably find another aircraft that I can apply these sounds to since I enjoy them. I know for many people sound is important and they all have their own ideas about what a jet should sound like based on the aircraft that they have flown but for me I would like my 737 to sound like a 737 and a 747 to sound like a 747. So for now I think that the PMDG sounds are still the best for the PMDG, unless someone has a reccomendation. Oh, and I should add that I also want my 737 to sound like a 737 in the cockpit when I am in the cockpit, not sound like I am seated over the wing or anywhere else in the plane. I love to hear the engines roar too but unless someone mounts an extra engine above the cockpit on a real life 737 I don't want to have sounds like that in my simulator. :-lolPhilip Olsonhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/supporter.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------I don't mean to offend (and I know the community hates honesty in any shape or form, so I apologize in advance) but these sound nothing like a CFM56-7 engine.------------------------------------------------------------------------You dont have to apologise! Ure just stating a fact :)I guess to hardcore simmers that would matter but for someone at my level they will do. I found the PMDG sounds a bit tinny! Thats interesting that the startup came from a DC-10 though! Personally I do a lot of mix n match with my sounds. So if I find that the engine whine or wind noise sucks in one soundset I grab those sounds from another one.I just got a 777 soundset that has a nice bassy rumble in the cruise....just what it sounds like (to me) in real life having been on a quite a few flights on the 777.Its a very personal thing though: sound in FS9. Some are happy with the default sounds, some are mid-level (like me) who kinda assign the same CFM56 soundset to both 737s & A320s (for example) and then there are the FS9 HyperGurus who push for max realism and try and get engine type/sub-type sepcific sounds!<<<<<------------------------------------->>>>I also wanna say that I totally agree with the comment made on this thread about hearing engine noise in the cockpit as if one was mounted right above the pilots! Is there a way to quieten the cockpit sounds but still have the loud wing & engine noise when you switch views?
