    For me one of the issues with sound on modded cars is there is no bass, it sounds so thin and tinny, i am using a high quality external audio dac and very good headphones. if anyone wants to be able to EQ their sounds a little better try Equilizer APO and the PEACE GUI addin. this page explains them https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/windows-sound-equalizers/. I have found messing with the EQ to get more low end sounds way better than standard. you can also save any EQ settings and assign them to buttons for different cars.
    I appreciate it is a lot of fiddling around and it's not for everyone but the option is there for the time being until cars get updated.

    right click on your speaker, bottom right of screen -- click on open sound settings -- click on device properties of your output device -- click on additional device properties and then go to the advanced tab

    Enough about the sound:)

    +1 for a request for a track-only pack (unless I’ve missed something while on holiday;))

    Why enough?! It’s a big issue for me. I can’t hear the AI cars at all.

    Yes, there's a lack of bass, "POWER", in the sounds, they became more "thin" with a lot of treble.. The idea is good and i think it has great potential, but the equalizing of the sounds is very poor as it is now. I can't still hear cracks and pops when off throttle in some cars, that would be great adittion to the sounds, a more "random" engine sound...

    Yes It´s not bass heavy, as most digital recordings that don´t have abusive compression In there EQ carving. We have to remember that the sound Is spread out In a 3D sound environment. It´s not left, right or center.

    I've been doing some tests because I also noticed the frame drops. It's the new content that it's causing the performance issues for me. I don't notice the same performance penalty when using the old tracks. Lowering the circuit detail, in my case from ultra to high, improves the frame rates but I still can't get fixed 90fps in Laguna Seca while the free mod does. I guess the DLC is much more detailed. Changing the number of simultaneous sounds playing doesn't affect it.

    I'm also seeing that the new tracks take a lot of memory and this can trigger swapping to disk and thus the stutters. Closing any open applications and freeing as much RAM as possible before starting rFactor 2 can help.

    Disabling Windows 10 Telemetry, user experience, DAP services can make a big difference In performance and stutters.

    What is this telemetry for? Does it have to do with sim telemetry?!

    Can you test with 30 AI again? Less cars produce less load. With only a few cars i don't have the massive problems, alone on tracks it does not matter how many samples are choosen

    Hi Lars,
    My settings were still set on 256k as they always have been.
    I'll give your suggestion a go, are you suggesting 3Mbps upstream and 6Mbps Downstream or the other way around?
    That seems like a huge leap from where they were, but if it works who cares, right?
    Out of curiosity, are they they the minimum speeds you found that worked, or did you just bang in a super high number to see the results?

    Thanks again.

    It was somewhat tongue-in-cheek - I’m away from my rig for a week and look forward to the new tracks on my return - and have obviously been spared exposure to any sound issues so far!

    I am concerned about 3rd party car sounds in particular though - as that’s pretty much all I ever drive.

    i ve set it to about 2 or 3 upl and 6 dl; someone suggested upload at least 1MB... dont know the official minim. requirements (if there are some at all) , so i just bang them in and they worked for me.
