I'm still unsure if this one as I don't fly the defaults. Not sure what it brings.

Reading the product description will show you it does much more than default aircraft sounds, AND, many add-ons use default sounds provided by X-Plane, even if a mix of some custom and default. This enhances those sounds.

 

But, as said, it extends to weather, in-cabin sounds, etc.

LOVED the airport sound environment....smiled at that motorcycle... The birds and nature sounds is what I really appreciate in my ORBX sceneries, like at KORS!  I have that now in XP!....Great product, Cameron... John scored another homer....and now going on an extended flight with the new sounds...

 

The Eclipse uses default sounds, so I have your full custom running with this sled. This is one of my favorites...so am quite pleased!

 

Looking forward to everything you have up your sleeves on this software :)

Downloading my copy right now!

Have you taken your first flight yet?  If you have the Eclipse v2.0 (that uses the default XP sounds...or, uh..did...) you'll love the throttles going home now....the turbo-fans really kick it behind you, as well as the cabin.

 

landing gear, flaps...it's all there.

 

Have a flight....and check it out.

Yes I have, like it. The default Cessna 172 is good and the new sounds make it better. I also like the ambient sounds.

again they forgot X-Plane is a multi platform sim, at least this time they also support the Mac, but no Linux :-( .

Would like to clarify something before purchasing - with the cabin sounds will it allow you to keep the sounds of the aircraft if you like them while also adding its own new ones. I'm thinking of the Saab and the Beaver which both have really nice sounds; naturally I'd like to keep them but if SoundMaxx can add turbulence rattling as well that'd be tops.

Yes scotchegg, the extra ambient sounds like rattling are completely independent of the other aircraft sounds. They won't interfere with them. Third party planes that include their own sound effects will continue to use their own sound effects, as well.

It's great, I've just given it a try at a few GA airfields, and the background ambience really gives some life to the simulator. The default C172 has had a complete sound overhaul, but also the added effects for other aircraft are a nice touch. Looking forward to properly trying this out later along with the Saab 1.2 update

Rattles squeaks and other ambient sounds will be intact ;)

 

You have two parts to soundmaxx one is a complete overhaul of the default, which was modified to add more depth....

 

Part two is the addition of more sound, the ambient layer which works in conjunction with defaults and 3rd party sound engines.....

 

Additionally some third party developers still use some default sounds, if they do part one applies where defaults are implemented.....

 

We love what third parties have done with aircraft sounds and developed SM to work seamlessly....

To be clear it's MAC and Windows no Linux support.....

 

Not going to post a link out of respect for AVSIM....

 

That link you provided is a development environment for aircraft sounds only, SM provides much more.....

Not even close. :)

Cameron or John, in the marine environment, are seagull calls sampled? I thought I heard them, as I went down the loading ramp from a seaplane base, and settling in the water, pulled up my gear, and then moved out into the lake... There were bird calls, but it would be great to know that marine birds were in mind.  What water sound effects (waves, ripples against a pontoon, hull, etc) are modeled, so I can keep an alert for them?

 

Thanks!  This really adds to XP!

John, I thought as much :BigGrin: ...let me tell you HOW MUCH this has up'ed the ante...

 

Here I am, at a water taxi...and OMG...I SWEAR that I just left a real marina, people by the lake..and the water slaps against my pontoons at taxi.... and living water sounds in general...along with those birds...has brought my marine environment, home!

 

Airport environs, marine environs....wow John....what a great addition. This purchase is obviously highly recommended by me, for my fellow XP'ers...and ESPECIALLY if you are like myself...and thoroughly enjoy water craft...oh yeah...oh yeah....
