FSX still doesn't model prop airplane sounds?

Recommended Posts

I have tried the FSX demo and am disappointed to see that they still haven't modelled the sound of a Constant Speed Prop plane (such as the Baron, Mooney, Extra) properly. The engine frequency is still linked to power, rather than RPM. I would have thought this is a basic thing which would have been easy to fix. And am I the only one who finds this annoying?

Ah, but it can be done! For proof, see:Filename: spartan.zipLicense: FreewareAdded: 21st January 2006Downloads: 11652Author: Milton Shupe, Scott Thomas, and Urs BurkhardtThe "prop sound" varies with CS prop pitch, not engine rpm... ;)It's "simply" a matter of proper FDE and sound design. If Milton & Co. can do it, anyone can! :-beerchug

Hi Bill,If so, I'm delighted.I don't have FS to hand at the moment so can't look at the freeware you mention. Just wondering is it for a turboprop or piston? Reason I ask is that I have tweaked my Caravan to link prop sound to prop and jet whine sound to the engine, but didn't know how/if it could be done for piston airplanes.Thanks.
