Dave Eckert's Stearman PT series


GBJim

Recommended Posts

I have Dave Eckert's Stearman PT series of freeware, and it's wonderful. However, amongst the 12 planes included, some have different radial engine sounds, even though they have the same horsepower, and the same number of cylinders. The PT-17's have a realistic putt-putt sound, while the PT-13A's have a much more aggressive sound. I much prefer the realistic putt-putt sound. The sound folders in each appear to be identical, so it may be a case of selecting what's within the folder. Is there anyway that I can convert the sound of the more aggressive one to the more realistic and likeable one ?

Jim - So, you've got me a little confused. You say the Sound folders appear to be identical, but then you go on to say "a case of selecting what's within the folders......." Do the contents of each sound folder appear different?

Okay, you have 12 planes, out of the 12 how many have the sounds that you like and can you look at those sound folders to see if they all look alike. Also the remaining planes with sounds you don't care for, do all those folders look alike? What I'm hoping you have is 12 planes with 2 different sound folders. That would be an easy fix (if each of those 2 folders were unique to themselves).

 

Oh okay, I just read your original post. You want the PT-13A's to have the same sound as the PT-17's?

Yes Rick, that's exactly what I want. But I owe you a little clearer description. I will dig a little deeper regarding the sound folder contents tomorrow. That's what I want, but I don't know how to get there ?

 

Thank you for your interest.

Rick, I was able to get back to it tonight, and found that the sound files were very different. And so, I just replaced the ugly sounding file of one plane, with the nice sounding file of another. It was a lot easier then I expected. I muddled thru it and got lucky. :)

Jim - Way to go, that's what I was going to suggest to you, determine what you like and what you'd like to replace, and then just try with one, get that to work, and then the rest is "Eazzzzzy Peazzzy!"

Well , almost! Glad you were able to do what you set out to do! And you learned thru the process!

 

Enjoy! Rick :cool:

Jim, and you won't have to copy the sounds to each aircraft folder. Use an "alias" for the sound.cfg file.

Here's what the contents of the sound.cfg file would look like:

alias=replace this text with the path to your preferred sound aircraft\sound

Yes, I found out that I only had to replace the sound folder of the ugly sounding one. All 12 of my Stearman's now have the same nice sound to them.

 

All is good here now, thanks for all of your help. Here is a very short video of what a good sounding
