Sound Mixups in various views

Recommended Posts

One thing ive noticed with the pro builds in the few times Ive had time to use them is the sounds getting very mixed up given whats actually happening with the aircraft.

 

Example: With the A318/A319 i was at Gatwick (UK2K) on the runway and i panned to one of the views that look at the aircraft from the wingtip, your also able to pan around if you so wish...anyway,the runway approach announcement continued to repeat over and over in this view.

 

Also i can have the engines on full down the runway and then wind down to the point that we stop but again if i pan to an alternative view on the aircraft (spot etc) the sounds heard are the engines on full blast yet we arent moving???? This was using the A321 but most likely the case with the A320 too.....Im unsure if the A318 & A319 are affected

 

Im unsure if some of the code written just needs tweaking by there are surely bugs with this area that need flattening i think?

I use Chaseplane for different views as well as the default P3D (I don't use the Airbus View System), and I've never noticed this in over 80 flights.  Are you using the View System, or something else?  This will help us to try and reproduce what you're experiencing.

This is using just the standard view tab, right click and then having the ability to choose various views through different tabs.

I'll ask the developers of RAAS about this because it seems what you hear is RAAS.

Sure. Just thought id point it out as i do think there is somekind of engine audio mixup in various views.

 

Just to be clear, I had the engines on full blast in virtual cockpit and spot view, switching between the two views and then brought the throttle right down, tried to deploy the reverse thrusters which had a considerable delay, eventually slowed down and turned off the runway, back into virtual cockpit view and taxied someway up a taxiway and then back onto spot view and the engines sounded like they were still on full blast though i was taxing very slowly. This was on the A321 Pro.

 

And then with the A319 sometime ago i was sat on the runway at Gatwick on a view offered in the menu for the Airbus Pro (right click menu) and the runway approach announcement kept repeating herself over and over even though i was already sat on the runway.

 

Cheers guys.

Those are all done by the default audio engine of the sim, we do not have a lot of control over that. But as you also have issues with the RAAS audio (that is NOT handled by the sim) it starts to sound like a deeper issue on the OS/Driver level. There are some amazingly bad drivers for motherboard audio around. Asus come to mind. On many laptops I have seen (rather heard) sounds delayed by over a second.

Would that be a case of me looking for  driver update? I never know really know where to start with that

As we do not have other users reporting exactly what you report I would indeed check for all the updates that are available for your motherboard.

I've noticed an issue with the engine sounds on my descent today with the A321. I had my throttle at idle but when I changed views to a wing view I could hear the engines full throttle with buzz noise and all. Even when I switched to spot view the engines still sounded full thorttle

I just installed a new sound driver now to see if that solves the issue. I was using Asus Realtek sound but now I’m just using Windows Realtek generic sound to try that

Ok the way I fixed this issue for me was I went into control panel, sound, communications and check do nothing worked for me

Check where it says do nothing, you got limit sound by 80% and do nothing. Also if the sound issue still presets try pressing q twice

Actually what worked for me was to hit Q twice it’s a known sound bug from way back in the FSX days

Here is video footage of a very similar issue currently.

 

The reverse thrust sound bleeding through all the way from landing to taxi and gate arrival, engine shut down and the rest...

I have reported that with Lockheed, it's not something we have full control over as we use the standard reverser call in the sim.

Okay, hopefully they'll work out whats causing it, this was very similar to previous issues i was having with reverse thrust bleeds

Well if you had it before I would most certainly do an update of your sound drivers.

Get TSS for the sound in the A320 it was just released. Well worth it

Keep in mind the soundset we provide is from TSS.
