View Full Version : Recording sounds
27 Feb 2011, 13:43
I have been working on modeling an aircraft for FSX; it's a Taylorcraft, which is similar to the Piper Cub. I've already gotten started on the visual model (Gmax), and now I'm just waiting for the snow to melt so I can take pictures of the thing.:) I may have an opportunity to go flying and record sounds from the actual thing. In order to create a sound set, what sounds should I record? What engine sounds/other should I capture?
Thanks in advance.

Well, After careful reading through the SDK, and comparing default FS sound sets, I've come up with a method of recording the sounds for the Taylorcraft. This airplane doesn't have an electrical system, so i won't need gyro sounds or anything like that.
List of sounds to record
The recording of this set would ideally need 3 sound recorders going at the same time, one positioned inside the aircraft, one outside and to the 2 o' clock position of the craft, and one behind the craft shielded from the propwash to minimize wind sound. This is to utilize the ability of FSX to produce 3d sounds as you pan around the outside of the airplane.
Here's how I do it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahP-lMXJK7Y
Might be some tips in there for ya

Thanks for that video, I got a few ideas from it. I do not have fancy recording equipment, but I have a a few HD video cameras with multiple microphones. I can edit the video to isolate the sound.
