Class 68 sound recommendations needed
« on: November 08, 2018, 09:49:01 PM »
Hi all

So I ended up with 2 class 68's one with Youchoos sound and the other just a standard decoder. These will probably always be used together and I was thinking of adding sound to the second one, but obviously don't want exactly the same sounds on both, so anyone recommend another sound supplier who does a good 68.

Thanks for your 'recomendations

I have a Youchoos and Dapol Sound Fitted, if im honest the Dapol one is no where near as good as the Youchoos. Would be interested in the above too as I might get right of the dapol sound file.

Anyone know which loco Dapol recorded? Given that (according to the instruction manual) it includes the wail made by mk3 coaches I would assume that it was one of the Chiltern ones.

I have been told Dapol used sounds supplied by Legomanbiffo, don't know if the sound set provided is the same as he supplies to his own customers or just a unique custom build for Dapol.

I'd ask Biff to confirm that - there have been wrong rumours in the past that "X" or "Y" sound maker is supplying a model brand, and further digging reveals it wasn't the top-notch sound supplier but instead something very averagely generic.     

Having got a decent sound file, the next bit is the speaker quality...
