Ford GT LM 2016 sounds with speed of sound delay 2017-05-06

Test of a new trick. Need Feedback

    Hi guys,

    As I want more realism on the sounds, I wanted to test something: I reworked on the Ford GT LM sounds to add a "realistic" distance delay due to the speed of sound (+/- 340 meters per seconds at sea level). the result is not perfect on long camera plan(like the camera @Paul Frère Curve on SPA where you can hear a second instance of the delay), but it is a bit more realistic on many cameras imho. I'm still working on it and any feedback is welcome :)


    Why I uploaded this one separately instead of doing an update on the first one? Just because that If you don't like it, you can go back to the original ;)

    EDIT: the sounds are adapted to a new engine that is limited to 7000rpm like the real one. I could upload the whole car if it wasn't illegal lol the physics are completely reworked

    EDIT2: Added a video that briefly explain the main purpose of this trick

    So you are trying something like
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCXsVf6lQMU
    @1:58 when the huracan gets far enough and begins to brake with acceleration sound still going?

    That's One hefty task to be completeing on a simulator that doesn't naturally support it. I'm also surprised you were able to get it with acceleration on its own. Keep up the good work.

      thanks, but I think that I'll pass on this kind of project. as I can't delete the "wobbly" sound due to the delay increasing with the distance. I just add some reverb and it does more or less the same job. unfortunately, as I did some physics modifications(real max rpm with 6550 rpm ideal shift point with the twin turbo), the sounds will be strange with the original one. so, when we'll finally get a legal model, be sure that the correct sound will be there as well as the new physics ;)

    I found the sound before better. Seen the car two days @ Spa-Francorchamps . The Original dound now is al lot deeper sound , with Much less crackling sound now Thanks for the work.

      I understand. actually, I tried to reproduce this effect at 3:35 of this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0nh6VHUVOI not the doppler effect, but the delay between when the R-GT brakes and the sound itself (+/- 2 seconds @ +/- 450 meters) it is still a work in progress, I know that actually, the original sound is better :) I'll update that, don't worry
