More R-3350 singing and prop bite MOD

Post R-2800-59 »

Dear community,

I made this one some time ago because I was fascinated how the Super Connie sounded in the cabin. This humming sound never did let me go - so I tinkered around a bit.

Besides the more pronounced humming in the cabin there is also a strong prop bite starting around 2300 rpm and peaking at max rpm.
I changed exterior sound a little too, but it is not prominently audible yet, just a sweet note in the distance.

Don't know if one can call this realistic... maybe someone likes it.


To get the mod, please pm me as it contains altered A2A files and is therefore not meant to be public but PRIVATE.


There is some footage of a takeoff run to give you some impression:

UPDATE: I tried to do a little stereo panning on the engine sounds. Developed this on headphones, but it works on speakers, too, of course. You will now hear the 1st engine with a 60% emphasis on the left channel, the 2nd engine got 30%. Right engines in the same fashion.

To bring this forward I appreciate any suggestions and advice! It would be especially interesting if someone had onboard recordings of an early Constellation.

As Lockheed improved soundproofing of the cabin towards later models I assume that high pitch noises must have been more accentuated than in the Super Constellation

If anyone had a decent vibration sound (like a loose panel snarling around in the cockpit) it would make me a happy man as I would like to implement some rough running spots over the rpm range.
