Ok, points noted. back the drawing board, as they say.
The samples are actualy from a game some of you may be familiar with, RallyTrophy.
These are the car samples that I used:
LX4 = Opel Kadett Rallye 1969
UFR = Lancia Stratos HF 1972
UF1 = Mini Cooper S 1969
note: With the exception of the Mini, I did not choose the samples based on engine similaritys to the LFS cars, more because I thought they might work well with the car, which may have been a mistake. Also the fact that the samples are from seriously old school engines probably doesnt help.
no GT V8s im affraid
Im guessing most ppl seem to like being able to mix the original LFS sound with the CSR sound, which I was trying to avoid. I had been trying to make sounds with the LFS engine volume off. (secretly hoping Scawen might make a specific engine sound "slider")
. We need to be able to hear wind noise and tyre sounds properly, plus the LFS engine sound is pretty good for a guide on RPMs and pitch frequency to match and when working on my next CSR I will keep that in mind.
I actually kind of like that low end "chug chug chug" rumble in the UFR sound. Is it totaly unrealistic to use that for any car in LFS?
Again thanks for your input, Ill post my further developments here
