    Totally agree ! and the Toyota Celica was a blast too. Lots of ambient sounds really well reproduced

    F1 1992 had a great sound too.

    Wrong driver for '92, but yes, I forgot that Lamborghini had supplied engines to a couple of teams back then. One of the most common problems with sim racing engine sounds is the lack of range...as if the original recording only covered a few thousand rpms instead of the full range of the engine. The ASR boys did a better job than others at accurate sounds and ranges, but yes, this one is probably the worst of the whole mod. It's still better than most of what's out there, though!

    It was divided into sections with the old gmotor engine, something like idle-idle low, mid- mid low-high and high. I've played a bit around with it for fun years ago but i've forgotten how it exactly was, anyway it isn't the full bandwidth. Depending on the rpm the sound engine remixed it.

    Don't know how the current sound and physic engine does that but it wan't change much until someone simulates acoustic sound waves and resonance relatively to the developement, starting with air intace duct up to exit flue, but i don't think that will happen in the next few years.

    Unfortunately no natural intake noise and no variation by engine inertia. The sound of simulations never made me believe to modulating a real car engine by the throttle pedal.

    Richard Burns Rally, Live for Speed, and older versions of NetKar Pro had audio created by physics, you should try them and see what you think...

    It's been a long time ago when I had the opportunity to test or owned them. I usually have the property to dispose games if I don't use them anymore ( licences i would no longer find as well ), but I doubt no single sample were used.

    The only problem I found with the F1 92, is that some sound engine doesn't match the RPM range perfectly, and you find that the sound represents 10.000 RPM and the engine is running at 12.000 to put an example. This happens just with some engines as the Lambo, but others work perfectly.

    Yup, I noticed there was something "off" with the Lambo within 5 seconds of listening to a youtube video of it.

    Well then, they nailed most of them and can fix one. Still better than 99% of what's out there to my ear.

    The sounds in that mod are awesome, for sure. Don't get me wrong, this thread wasn't aimed towards that mod (or any mod) at all.

    Yeah, I think the same, it was just an example. But it's true that most of the MODs don't get the best of the sound options. There is a lot more there that's still unused.

    Not F1 cars but one of my favorite open wheel car sounds.

    FANTASTIC!!!!!

    What would make people's hairs stand up more? What would make people laugh and jump up and down - like they were 12 years old again - more? What would get our hearts racing more?......Watching all the above videos but with no sound (completely muted)? Or just listening to the above videos (no visuals) with your speakers cranked and shaking the house with the sounds echoing and bouncing all over the place, feeling the electricity of the engines through your body, feeling and hearing all the complexities of the sound, the bass, treble, mids, as if there was a racing car war-zone brewing in your home ready to explode?

    GRAPHICS ARE SO OVERRATED!! :)

    Sound improvements were one of my first requests, It has always been high on my list of desires. I really wish this area had some focus.

    What concerns me is I am not sure it is even on the roadmap. Seems there are quite a few that seem to think the sound engine could really do with some attention!

    The strongest memories are ones created by the sounds I heard. A good few years working around these cars, in some cases, these particular cars.

    It won't won't leave me, but the sound engine in rfactor2 leaves a lot to be desired .

    For me the sound is essential, it makes you immerse into the race. It's a guide about what's happening with the car without the need to see displays or gauges.

    1990 Lambo V12

    Is that the engine in the F1 mod we were discussing earlier?
