Aerozone Cheyenne Sounds - Anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I had anticipated to wait for the Carenado sale (if any) before buying the Cheyenne II, but I gave in :biggrin:
Today my first flight, incl the mods of whamil77/Bill, and I'm very pleased. I really like the aircraft and specifically the panel.

Now my question: Does anyone use the sounds of Aerozone? How are they?

Hi Egbert,

In the past Carenado did not offer the holiday sale price for their aircraft less than a year old. That may change, who knows. I just purchased the Cheyenne II the other week. Will be interested to see if anyone does purchase and comment on the sound set you noted. Did you watch their YouTube demo video? This sound set sounds pretty good, also there is one review from a purchaser. You may want to read that as well in case you have not done so. Some simmers in the past have purchased sound sets from this vendor with the idea the cost is not much in case they did not like their purchase.

You may want to "PM" Gregg_Seipp as he purchase and installed Synchro Soft's sound set for the Cheyenne II and seems to like it.

I do have them :happy: and they are actually quite good, except for the wind sound that is.
Waaayyy too loud, but that is easily fixed by editing the wav file.

I purchased the Synchro-soft for the PA-46 350P Malibu Mirage (and it is excellent!...for that aircraft).  My eyes are on these Cheyennes.

I got the Arezone soundset for the Turbine Duke and it is wow.  The turbine startup and ground roll sounds are really nice.

I don't think Synchro-soft has a sound set for the Cheyenne II, at least I couldn't fine it?

I don't think it does.  I meant my comment above to clarify that I got the Synchro-soft soundset for a different aircraft...not this one.

Sorry fellows for the confusion regarding a sound set for Carenado's Cheyenne II offered by Synchro-soft. It was my misunderstanding after reading Gregg's post as quoted below found under Cheyenne II  V. 1.2 Available topic: 

"I did that a couple of weeks ago with the RXP unit and now have that plane back!  Also added the Synchro Soft sound set (which is great).  I'm back to flying her again and working on more ways to make her even more realistic." 

That's what prompted me to post this earlier: "You may want to "PM" Gregg_Seipp as he purchase and installed Synchro Soft's sound set for the Cheyenne II and seems to like it."

I just assumed this sound set was offered by Synchro Soft for the Cheyenne II. You know what they say when one assumes, "it makes a you know what out of you know who" :))

Can it be used also for the Cheyenne, have you tried?

Interesting thought.  It might...might not hurt to try...but I think the Arezone Cheyenne II soundset sounds very similar to the Turbine Duke one.  In some sense, it should since the engines are similar (and the sound of the PT6 starting for the Turbine Duke is really, really nice.)  Also, the departure roll rattle is similar and, according to the description of their Cheyenne II mod, the buttons and switches all have custom sounds.

Hi Folks,

As we've discussed in another thread here - even Arezone seemed to include the annoying igniter clicks and played them through the whole demo... As best I can tell - you can't hear the click in the cockpit - here's a real world example of what you do hear...

Regards,
Scott

Be nice to hear that warbling sound instead.

Hi Gregg,

Yeah - does someone have an email for Arezone and are they open to feedback/improvements ???

Also see Dave in my "Ignition Sound" thread in this forum - he may have just what you're looking for...

:wink:

Hi Gregg,

Hi my name is Scott and I'm a Cheyenne-aholic...

I'm interested in improving this bird and if you guys feel the sounds do it justice - I'm game....

I'll send an email as a potential customer addressing my concern... More than one would be better...

Regards,

Scott

Hi Scott, I have Arezone sounds for the Cheyenne II and I'm the one who wrote the review on Simmarket's website. I emailed Arezone about my concerns months ago when I first bought them and never heard back from them? I do think they are an improvement over the default set that Carenado provides, perfect no but not bad? I'll see if I can find their e-mail and I'll post it here.

Cheers

Martin

Scott, here is their e-mail Arezone@hotmail.de

My complaint is when you pull back the power during flight or shortly after climbing out you do not hear a change in pitch when pulling back the power which you should hear. Carenado does a good job with this sound when pulling back the props you hear a nice change in pitch.  I tried to find the appropriate files that makes this change in pitch and just swap them into the Arezone sound set and that would solve the issue, but I couldn't really identify them.  Despite this I do use the Arezone sound set in the Cheyenne II.

P.S. I don't hear the ignition clicks when flying only during startup.

Here is a good video where you can hear when the power levels are pulled back a little right after take-off, I don't hear this with the Arezone sound set?

Hi Martin,

Thanks for all - love seeing interest in this bird and welcome any improvements to Carenado's work...

I'll listen to the video when I get something a little better than a PC speaker...

OK, I re-downloaded and installed the Arezone sounds set and I can hear a slight change in pitch now when pulling back the power, not as pronounced as in the video, and there is quite a lag but that is probably typical for a turbo-prop. So with Bill's (whamil77) mods and this sound set I'm pretty happy with her.

 

Cheers

Hi all,

I purchased and installed the Arezone Cheyenne sounds, and was really disappointed with the treatment of the prop pitch decrease.

All the other sounds are nice, but when you decrease prop pitch after take-off you don't hear any change in the prop sound, contrary to the default Carenado sounds.

I find this unrealistic. I sent several e-mails to the developper (arezone@hotmail.de) and they basically answered : "not an issue, everybody else is happy whith that, we're not going to correct it..."

I ended up uninstalling and reverting back to the default sounds

It's not very expensive but still for me it was a waste of money...

Regards,

Sinonquoi

Hi Folks,

Yeah - I think that prop sound would annoy me too if that was the case...

And if that's really their response - they'll be added to my "no fly" list...

I wound up going with TSS Twin Otter Sound Pack and some mods provided by another member to make them more Cheyenne like - I am pretty happy with the results - as most know TSS is the top of the line in sound mods... Also using the warbling sound instead of the ticks for the ignition system posted in my igniter sound thread in this forum...

If Carenado would fix that trim wheel and separate the ignition switches - I'd be pretty happy with this model now...

Regards,

Scott

As with every constant speed prop, there shouldn't be any change in sound (pitch) when reducing/increasing power! 

This happens only when reducing/increasing prop RPM.

That's unfortunately a very basic FSX/P3D bug which most people got used to over the years.

If the sound pitch changes with power changes Carenado has it wrong as well, but this would be a surprise because most Carenado Turboprop don't have this problem.
