Sound Rendering ver. 4.4

Recommended Posts

Has this changed or am dealing with corrupt sound files after upgrade from 4.3?

What I'm getting with 4.4 is what sounds like an engine spool up whenever I change views while sitting on a runway with throttles in the idle position. Heck, Ill get the sound of spool down when I change views with the throttles a little past idle. I've never had this 'issue' with any previous Prepared or FSX build. This happens with default aircraft and the PMDG 747 (all aircraft I've used with 4.4)..

That's a bug in 4.4. Has been already acknowledged by LM and it's pretty distracting when switching views.

Wow, that sounds...bad? Will they do a hotfix?

I heard it in Robs video he showed when displaying settings tweaks around SFO bay. How this one got past the beta I have no idea.

They gotta fix it for sure. Makes sounds play completely differently than designed.

Have this issue to when switching from cockpit to outside view ( takes a few seconds for the engine RPM to stabalize)

 

However , when using EZDOK and switching from EZCA2 VIRTUAL COCKPIT to EZCA2 AIRCRAFT CAM ( from the VC to the outside view) , sound works perfectly .

 

Turning the sound off and on via the Q key - issue persists , but pausing the sim P  works fine.

 

Thank god for EZDOK or it would be a no -go for 4.4 until a hotfix

I am not getting this issue.  I did a full clean install.  I tried with few birds - default and addons.

 

Did you guys who are having issues just do client update?

I just got a solid confirmation on my sim.

Yep, the sound thing is there.  I was not able to do this my Realair but with default Cub, I was able to replicate it.

Just a quick follow up on this. Mike Schroeter made a post here https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6312&t=131659&sid=2dae34e578ef03ede83ae1303c52dda9&start=15 with a possible fix. I will quote:

You can try adding the following config setting to your Prepar3D.cfg [sound] section.

[sound]
time_constant=0;

Report your results please.

Thanks,
Mike

I haven't got the time to try this myself.

Thank you, Maikel!

Works like a charm. :-)   ....I can't remember if the semi colon makes a difference, but it works without it.

Did not work for me. If I am sitting there without the engine running, I still hear the spool up and down. Full new install of P3Dv4.4

X-Plane 11 has similar issue when engines are running at least. Switching from external to internal or visa versa produces this.

Great goodness.. I am having the exact problem. I thought  my a/c needed an update to make it fully compatible with V4.4  🤣

 But, now I see all the reports and see that it's a P3D bug. 

Have you guys tried what Maikel  suggested on the above post?  Does it fixes the issue?

Never experienced this in any other version, but yes, am experiencing this in v4.4, especially in the B60 Duke.
