Hi - I bought FSX when first released but found, like many others, that my PC was found wanting in many respects....I am now at the point though where I am using FSX with decent quality and framerates and want to try and make the experience as realistic as possible.
So - the simple question is - bearing in mind I am using default FSX sounds (apart from that revolting main menu music!!), what are the most realistic sound setttings to use? When FSX is installed, all sliders are set to 50%, but I'm pretty sure this ain't right!
I know every system will differ, but I have nothing to compare it to since I've never sat in a real flight deck and would appreciate advice. I am using a 7.1 sound system, if that affects the answer.
Also, I know there are a few sound add-on packs out there....would appreciate opinions as to which ones, if any, are any good.
Edit Voice pack is good for cockpit call outs etc.
If you mean sound of such as aircraft engines, or something of that nature, i would highly recommend getting a TSS (turbinesoundstudios) package, it's payware but damn well worth it.
Thanks - will keep those in mind for future buys.....but perhaps my original post was not bery well phrased....trying to find the most realistic balance for the default sounds....
