Aerosoft CRJ soundpack

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,  I was just wondering how the sounds are with this aircraft.  From all the videos I have watched they seem pretty bland.

Not terrible but like you said, bland.  One of the major weaknesses that hopefully will be remedied either by Aerosoft or a third-party in the future.

What is bland about them?

 

They just don't give you that CRJ "feel", I've flown in a CRJ over a hundred times probably and I just didn't feel it at all with the Aerosoft CRJ

as far as I know, the soundpack has been made by TSS.

Keep in mind, the engines are far behind the cockpit and not that noisy anyway, so don`t expect to hear engine sounds in the cockpit. Would be Hollywood if they could be heard :-)

I think the sounds are quite good... But then again, I've only listened to a real CRJ from a distance. Never actually been at one, so I can't speak to their accuracy.

There's an sound addon available from TSS at SimMarket. Don't know how good it is, though... it's from 2014.

Can it be used with the aerosoft crj? It says in the product description it's for the default fsx crj.

If someone can make it work for the aerosoft then it be awesome :biggrin:

I don't really know, to be honest. I would think it would work, but I haven't tried it.

What would be the point in purchasing an old TSS sound set for the CRJ when the product itself includes a sound set from TSS??

I hope Blueskystar decides to port over/modify their CRJ-200 soundpack for the Aerosoft.

Well it doesn't feel like a turbine sound studio soundpack. In my opinion, the sound pack they made for the tfdi 717 is better. The one for the CRJ feels like some sort of a "lite" version. The product page also states that they just made a standard soundpack, aerosoft made the cockpit sounds.

I think everyone is expecting to hear a rumble and whine. Reality is this plane is so long and the engines so small that once you get in the air the wind noise takes over sound of the engines. If you are comparing what you hear as a passenger than you are not really that same distance in the cabin as you are from cockpit so it's not a realistic expectation.

Flying frequently with CRJ between Vienna and Ljubljana I can say that if sitting in the first rows the engines are hard to hear, only during takeoff. Sitting in the back you of course will hear them. So I'm sure that cockpit is quite silent in regard to the engines....

I have the Blue Sky Star sound pack with the CR-200 for xp11 and it's a huge difference in sound immersion.

Can you be specific?

Passenger or pilot?

This video does a good job showcasing what I mean:

Okay, I now understand.  While I don't have any time on the CRJ flight deck, some of the sounds don't sound normal/right to me.  I'm going to drag a few guys that fly the CRJ for a living into this thread and let them weigh in (I think one is already here).

Thanks for the video.

I agree that the AS CRJ sounds are a little 'flat' but it's hard to be specific and objective with these things.

For me, the engine sounds are predominantly in the mid-range in terms of the audio spectrum; with a lack of high frequency content, that would be most noticeable on take off when the engines are at TOGA.

IMO the sound volume of the avionic fans and general cockpit sounds are way too high by default.

You can somewhat sort it in the config manager, but it's an issue nonetheless. The air stream surrounding the flightdeck should be the omnipresent noice while flying.

I'm also disappointed with the default sounds released with this product, and also hope Blue Sky Star releases an improvement.  Their other packages are amazing and immersive!

I agree.  I think they almost feel rushed or incomplete.  Something is missing.  TSS's newly released E175 sounds are spot on excellent - I suppose I was expecting something similar with this product.  Love how they were able to change the sound effect based upon camera location with that product (ie: more engine noise near the front of the engine and more "rumble" behind the wing.)  Amazing!

I suppose it's a challenge for developers to please everyone - I do know the CR7/9 is rather quiet up front in terms of engine noise, though.

I've never been in the flight deck of a CRJ so I can't comment on the engines, but surely the ground power unit is way too loud by default? It's deafening lol.
