Default New sounds discussion

As you may have noticed, we got new sounds in the latest patch 31st october 2019.

Overall, I think it is a very positive development and the flybys especially sounds great. Good job on the guys implementing new samples!

However, I notice that when changing from low to high boost (Running up the engine) as well as reducing boost, there is a VERY noticable "gear change" as it jumps from one sound sample to another.

Try standing on the ground, fine pitch, brakes in and increase and lower boost and listen yourself. This is also just as noticable in external view.

Can someone confirm? For me it is very noticable, but if people don't get my point I will make a video.

Just want to pitch in (no pun intended) to make our beloved Spit IX the best she can be in DCS

I run Jafa's sounds, but I'll take a listen.

Quite honestly, the engine noise from the cockpit now sounds as if the Merlin has dropped a crankshaft and is about to rattle itself to pieces. It sounds rough.

Was that the intention?

It need a bit of growl. I'm good with it.

Note that I am not discussing the new noise per se- I am talking about a specific shift in pitch (sound- not prop) that happens when increasing and lowering boost.

I agree, but everyone else thinks it's great...

so there's a reason

*update*

* Changed the frequency to more mid in my Odyssey headphones and it sounds very good now. Those don't fit well and you miss a lot, so I had them low trying to add some body... but, This update is great, have found the true power band now, and the prop sound is glorious. Also the exhaust roar can be felt behind the centerline, just great. As Reflected says, Thank you ED for your efforts and results, nice. *

Sounds are really important to me, and I think it's a big improvement. I'm happy that ED spent time and energy on this. Great job, and thank you!

The sound in the cockpit is based on the sounds we recorded from a real spitfire IX cockpit. it sounds exactly as implemented.
