MarWick GWR Castle Class Soundscape with RealDrive steam project.
The MarWick GWR Castle Class Soundscape with RealDrive project has been created from various recordings from preserved railways.
This project is available on the Loksound V5 family of sound decoders. To order simply choose your decoder & interface type and select a soundscape option. ESU decoders are supplied with a hard wired standard speaker, to upgrade to one of our premium quality 3D printed speakers view our range of speakers from the link within the useful information tab to the right.
A video demonstration of the sound project in action is available from the useful information tab opposite, clicking on the link will open the YouTube video in another window/tab.
Soundscape with RealDrive raises the bar to a level higher than previously available in Loksound technology. These sound projects have been developed jointly by Mark’s Trains and Wickness Models in great detail to be more throttle and volume responsive, through the range of 128 speed steps than other currently available sound projects, and with RealDrive features to give the user a much more prototypical user experience; putting the user in the driving seat.
These projects have been developed to be used on any DCC system although we do not recommend Hornby Select or Bachmann EZ Command due to limited function options.
So what is Soundscape then?
Soundscape is a set of ambient sounds on a given theme additional to the standard running sounds (engine, horns, compressor etc.). The soundscape runs on an available function within the project just like any other function such as a horn. This is exclusive to MarWick sound projects on LokSound V5 decoders.
Soundscape can be activated during running or while motionless to provide additional background noises based on the theme of your layout. For example, you might choose Londonscape or Airportscape for a city centre layout, or Farmscape or Hedgerow for a rural one.
What does RealDrive do?
RealDrive fully utilises the advanced functions and logical programming available to the LokSound V5 decoder family, giving the user a prototypical and immersive experience. It’s like driving a real train – to an extent!
