ATIS voice conflict

Recommended Posts

I run P3Dv5 under Windows 10 and have just updated to ASP3D and VoxATC 7.43. I have completed a maiden flight and all seemed to work normally, however, listening to ATIS at the start of the flight I hear the Vox version first and get info on the active start and landing runways etc., then the report is repeated - a different voice - with slightly different details. This second report  is then repeated until I change frequency. The active runways , wind, Qnh though different matched the AS data. The taxi instructions sent me happily to the Vox designated runway.  At the end of the flight the Vox landing info now matched the AS data.

At the beginning of the flight there would appear to be a conflict between Vox, P3DV5 and AS which sorts itself out towards the end of the flight. Why is the ATIS report read from two different sources and is there a way to suppress the erroneous one?

It could be that you are hearing the P3D ATIS

Go to P3D Options - Information and uncheck all the boxes in the Air Traffic Control Section.

Go to P3D Options - Sound and uncheck Voice in the Volume Levels section.

Active Sky has its own ATIS also if one of your comm radios is tuned to a specific frequency. Turn that option off in the AS settings. I usually leave the option active and then I can get an ATIS weather summary by monitoring COM2 and tuning to 122.0.

Nah it isn't but it's easier than hunting down the closest ATIS frequency while enroute.

Thanks for the response - the conflict is no longer a problem.

Can you share with us what you did to correct the issue. Thanks.

Sorry for the late reply. I followed the suggestions given above concerning P3DV5 options/info and options/sound. But what really helped was the following:

Additional information to note from 18-12-01 to try and improve balance between PMDG 737 NGXu sounds and VoxATC.
1. Reduced engine sound to 25% in FMS Simulation settings for sound.
2. Via Windows Control Panel/Sound/Manage audio devices choose Communications and change "Reduce volume of other sounds by 80%" to "Do nothing".
