Nice sound  :thumbup:

One thing though, at that time the drivers were wearing a helmet and had cotton wool in the ears, i think they heard muffled sounds.

I'd love to hear something similar in my headphones :)

Possible?

This is true with nearly all sims, but most people expect/prefer to hear the external sound when driving.  A more correct sound is easily achieved using a low-pass filter with about a 12dB/octave rolloff above 2-3kHz (the rolloff point will determine how muffled the sound becomes, 1.5-2k for a modern full-face helmet, higher for older styles ...basically adjust for what you like).  In sims with misfire sounds those also need to be subdued but the procedure is different since the spectrum is less important than the waveshape, fortunately these are small, easily edited files;  reduce the dynamic range and rise time of the signal so the "pop" sound becomes more of a "thump".

Hi Slinky,
excellent recording of those Chevy V8  engines.
Maybe it's possible to make sound files from them. I will try.


@ jgf
You are welcome to edit the sound files as You described in Your posting.

I will stick to the on board recordings without muffled sounds.
I don't use extern recordings for sound editing, only onboard recordings.
It is difficult enough to give them the in-cabin character as it is needed for sportscars or the
"open" sound witch corresponds to the wind noises in roofless cars.

We should reproduce the cars sounds as they are. No one would like to see a dark cockpit only because most drivers use
sun-glasses or dark shields on the helmets when they are racing. So why should we make the sound covered by helmets or earplugs ?

Imho the only reason to muffle the sounds is to respect the headphone users.

I guess that's very succeptable to the user of the sim.
I believe there was an overlay made with a goggle look(way back) which would obscure parts of the in cockpit view so you would see it as if you where wearing goggles ;) Harldy realistic because in real life you where able to look down on the dash and read your gauges.
It could be that users which have the ir look tool (i don't know what it's called but it follows your head movement) wouldn't mind because they can look around. Although i'm not sure if look up/down is possible :think: But i believe the overlay didn't cover that much so you still could read the gauges. Hey it's been a while so alzheimer is playing up again.

The same counts for people wanting a 67mod having all the proper cars and drivers of that season.
For me the 67 as it is will do just fine.

I'm not that anal on details like that so i appreciate your sound sets as being as good/great as it needs to be :)

Oh and what Ginetto says: Happy B'day  :cheers:

The Cooper V12 sound made of the recording Rindt at Spa really forces us to think about damping the distortions.
I am also not happy with the distortions, but with the secondly posted file headphone users hopefully have it a bit
more comfortable. However I will try to improve it and will always be thankful for Your helpful suggestions.

And thx for the good wishes for my birthday. I'm pleased to go out now for dinner with my family.

Cu,

Wolfgang

actually i agree with all of the above. and would say, if i wanted to have the muffled sounds, i put pop some plugs in my ears, get me a period helmet and wear some period goggles. that way i get the sound as it should have been heard by the driver, the view as it should have been (i can still turn my head to look at the screens)...

but not everybody wants to do that, for some the "plain" sound and graphics is plenty enough. now if i had a cockpit like remco, i would want to go the full monty for full immersion, but since i don't have that...

oh ok, and this really is the last coherent post, the wine is breathing already :D

I advocated neither editing nor not editing.  Just pointed out the procedure for anyone who wished to do so.

Now it is time to post my current Ferrari 312 sound for the 66 F1 Ferrari 312.
If You like, take it also for the 67 312.
There shouldn't be a great difference between the cars of those seasons.
You'll get my favourite file and may be one that is better for headphone users, witch is muffeld.

Here is the reference recording onboard Mike Parkes at Monza 1966 in the F1 312 V12:


or watch sections from Frankenheimer's film "Grand Prix"



Don't expect to hear all of this glorious sinfonia. For sure the Ferrari F1 V12 is the most beautiful and difficult to edit engine sound of all.

Mike Parkes' recording was made during a lazy lap at Monza. The real pitch is a little bit higher than Parkes revs the engine.
Also the acceleration isn't race like.
The inertia of the GPL simulated engines is much lower than irl. This leads to different immersion while You hear the sound.
I tested it with GPLshift and clutch. This is the way to go.
If i try to simulate the lap of Parkes at Monza witch smooth acceleration, using clutch and "manuel" throttle blib, the immersion of the sound
is quite good. You may have not the best results if You use to play GPL with the default shifting and throttle blib.

On fast and long tracks like Monza the engine will accelerate not as fast as on tracks like Monaco due to long gearing settings. This takes major influence on the perception of sounds. But we only have good onboard recordings of the F312 from Monza.

I am still working on files that may work also on shorter tracks with faster acceleration, but it is not easy to get it like we want it for all circumstances.
Step by step....

Cheers,

Wolfgang
