DESCRIPTION:

The humming sound can be heard from the pc speaker when the first version of MSFS has been a long time in the past. The hardware and software to offer a lot of possibilities and opportunities with a realistic audio set-up in the cockpit of a verwezelijkt can be used.

The setup of a Flight Deck Audio System it is also one of the most important factor is to have a "real" feeling of being in a cockpit.
Therefore, it is not the strength of the volume, which is most important, but most importantly the right sound for the right time and at the right volume and at the right place for you.

With a cheap set of PC speakers and an old stereo system if you don't have to far. As a homecockpit pc's to be used, it is also of interest for the various (external) sound card to speak on this pc, and it can be involved in the functioning of the Flight Deck Audio System. Thanks to the software, such as ProSim737 is it possible to have all the sound effects to be divided among the various speakers (i.e. pc's with different sound cards). The sound system might be another to add SimSounds and NEW.

Along with the ‘Aural Warning System the ’Touch The Sound System is the Flight Deck Audio System is a vital part of a homecockpit with the simulation and with the real one more and more aspired to be.

Explanation of the Aural Warning System, ‘Touch the Sound System, Intercom system and headsets can be found at the following links :

SOFTWARE

The Aircraft soundpakket
The sound of the plane coming mainly from the Prosim 737 Flight Model, and P3D.

PromSim737, and in the ProSim Audio Module
The different sounds are generated by the ProSim737 such as, for example, The ON music. In ProSim737 you can also make yourself sound to attach, that in a certain situation should be played back (triggered) be used. This can be done internal via the ProSim server, or from an external ProSim Audio Module, which is installed on a different cockpitcomputers.

How do you have your own sounds to add to ProSim, it is to be found in the ProSim manual, which you can download at the following link : http://prosim737.com/downloads/

A user guide is available for download from the link below : http://www.flightdeck737.be/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Prosim-Sounds.zip

SimSounds
This program also has additional sounds that can be linked to the vliegtuigmodel and console (Announcements).

Most of the sounds have been recorded in the real aircraft. Optimized for the buttkickers, and body shakers.
The sound of his body ... the sound of roll, windgeluid, regengeluid, bonkgeluid. Vertically, depending on the speed ... touchdown sounds. The cabin announcements take into account the ... of the day, the name of the airport. The cabin announcements were in German and / or English. The cabin announcements, to get in, start engine, taxi, and after take-off, cruise, descent, and after landing, parking. Get in with the music, in full flight, with the paxgeluid.
You can also leave the default ‘Announcements’ has been replaced with a home-made ‘Announcements’.

Audacity
It is often the case that these sounds, or the sounds effects are too loud, or too quiet to stand. It is easy and free of charge yourself through the use of the program Audacity. This makes it easy to have the volume increase or decrease, and thereafter in the wav file back to afsaven. In simple words.

As a bonus, which is added in the ProSim Audio Module is that each person is marked individually and the volume can be set. So there you have the Audacity to not always be necessary.

The PM Sounds
Project Magenta Sounds, it is almost the opposite of the ProSim Audio. PM Sounds you hear in the Boeing 737 is a suite of Project Magenta, but can also be independent (in part) by a vliegtuigmodel. It may be, here and there, in addition to lack of sound. You can, for example, in the PM-sounds (wav.) for use in ProSim. In the past it was a PM, Sounds free. Now it does not.

 

.

ProSim A. F. A. S.,
ProSim A. F. A. S. (Automatic Flight Announcement System) is a version of ProSim737. It's the equivalent of SimSounds. With this program, you can be at any computer on the network that you can install to give you a crew announcements", and it depends on what part of a flight, you have achieved.

Prosim A. to the highest standards of quality.Has additional tools such as a ‘passenger monitor’ which gives you the information you can see, it is a vliegkaart, and a boarding/in-flight videos via the youtube plug-in.

You can make your own ‘crew announcements’set in the path of the films or download them and whether or not to associate with a particular airline.

ProSim A. F. A. S. and that makes the thing a bit more realistic.

You can ProSim A. F. A. S. for download at the following link : http://www.b737sim.de

Note. Prosim A. to the highest standards of quality.S. it can be replaced with SimSounds. The sounds of the A., F. A. S., you can also use it in the SimSounds ...

Main/IVAP
When you're online, flying (IVAO), it is a very important part of our " Flight Deck Audio System for the communication with the air traffic control (ATC).

Order online and fly with the voice, it is necessary to use IVAP and Teamspeak.

IVAP, the IVAO Pilot Client that will connect to the IVAO network and Teamspeak allows voice in IVAO network.

It is also interesting to note that this communication be independent of it happens out of the other sounds in other words, only through the headset.

To do this, I'm using the motherboard sound card of the PC 2 (the Client). With this card you have to the Ruscool intercom system connected to and using 2 splitters and the 2 headsets Capt and F/O). Through the headphones, you hear only the sound of the ATC. A button on the yoke, and is configured, as mentioned above. The F/O, there is a PTT on the yoke.

Teamspeak can be downloaded at the following link : http://www.teamspeak.com/

 

If you have a homecockpit, it is likely that you are using different pc's with different audio sources can be accessed through a variety of channels.

Thus, it is possible for the IVAP user Interface to be run on a remote pc (e.g. in the case of the use of Prosim Utils). The IVAP user Interface, and also Main associated with it that makes the spoken word.
In order to be realistic to be effective, there must be a hardware Push-to-Talk switch in the cockpit to be connected to the virtual C/T in the TS and in the local area network.

To get this set up to accomplish, I have a tutorial attached, which contains all the step-by-step explanation.

Use the Setup Push-To-Talk (PTT) on a remote computer

The TS Noise
TS Noise is an add-on for the Teamspeak and it will be installed on the same computer. This is a small program that helps to ensure that the radio mic clicks and ambient sounds of the others to hear.

TS Noise is available for download at the following link : http://www.flightdeck737.be/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/TN1.0.4.zip

 

MorphVox Pro
MorphVox Pro is a voice changer or stemvervormer where you are with the right settings, a real radiostemgeluid feels like it is in the real vliegwereld.

The program is available for download at the following link : http://www.screamingbee.com/

The settings are as follows :

NOISE LEVELS IN THE COCKPIT

I have to wonder how many of the ‘SPL’ (Sound Pressure Level) in a B737-800 flight deck.

Some of the fellow B737-800 pilots at Ryanair have made a long time ago for me to test it out by reading it on cruisehoogte (FL370).

This measurement is done by using an App on their phone, and don't use a standard meter vibration. So, the result is not 100% accurate but it does give us an idea of the.

On one reading, the SPL 84dB (db) and the other thing is with the SPL 77dB. An average would be around 80 dB.
I've been "googled" on the Internet, and confirms that the values are 75dB – 80dB and 85dB SPL.

This is also the place in which the configuration and performance of the aircraft. The NG's have been a Boeing though efforts have been made in order to reduce the noise.

Below is a picture of the one on the IPhone :

Now, I did the same thing once, used it in my homecockpit by the sound, to compete with the IPhone, and the sound level (SPL) to lead to 77 to 80dB.
I have to say that the noise is around 80dB for me personally, it is too loud and, therefore, are not to be used in a room...

Sound levels above 85dB are considered harmful to the health of, and of hearing protectors to be used.

Below is a table showing the Sound Pressure Level and the standard of the sound exposure :

up to 80 dB

Unlimited
85-90 dB 8 hours
92 dB 6 hours
95 dB 4 hours
97 dB 3 hours
100 dB 2 hours
With 102 dB of 1.5 hours
105 dB 1 hour
110 dB 30 min.
