Shifts and DRS Beeps - SimHub

Shifts and DRS Beeps - SimHub 1.2

No permission to download
Hi! This will make SimHub play beeping sounds for upshifts and/or DRS
It works with most SimHub compatible games

99 sounds to choose from
: 9 tones and 2 alert sounds with 9 audio levels for each one

Beeping sound
- The engine RPM level reaches the upshift point (except in top gear)
- The DRS is available next zone – Detection zone (iRacing only)
- The DRS is available now – DRS line
- The DRS is open - Audio confirmation

Two experimental pit speed alerts :
- “Speed Pit Limit Over” beeps fast when over the limit in pit lane and/or pit limiter is on
- “Speed Pit Limit Under” beeps once when the speed reduces under the speed limit. To help on entry.
Result will vary depending on the game, car or track.

- You don’t have to use them all. Just enable the beeps you want to use.
- Every time you change car, you'll have to go through the gears once before the shift beep starts working. The script has to learn what the top gear is.
- You can adjust the Red Line, as a general setting, and per car, in the "Car settings" Tab of SimHub.
- Keep in mind that SimHub will output the sound to the default output device as defined in Windows audio settings.
- This is a personal preference thing, but I suggest going for low audio level so the beeps don't become annoying over time. At the right level, you should hear them, but not really be aware of it.

1. Copy the content of the "Copy my content into SimHub install" folder into you SimHub installation folder. Typically here: C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub\
2. In SimHub "Settings" screen, "Plugins" tab, make sure the "Audio control" plugin is enabled
3. Restart SimHub
4. In SimHub, go to the "Controls and events" screen
5. Click on the "Events" Tab
6. Click on the "New mapping" button
7. Select "ExternalScript.Shift Beeps" as a source
8. Select one of the “Play_Beep XXXXhz -XXdB” as a target. You can use the "Trigger action now" button to pick and choose the sound (tone and audio level)
9. Click "Ok" and you're done

Repeat the steps 6 to 9 for the DRS and pit speed limit beeps you want to use (search for “DRS” and "Speed Pit Limit" in the source list)

Is there an option to replace or use different sounds for "shifting up"? I would love to replace it with the dinging noises that The AE86 From Initial D uses!
Hi! Thanks for the review. You should be able to use any mp3 file you want as a shift sound. Just place it into your simhub/sounds folder. Restart simhub, and it should appear in the target list (in the event mapping screen)
Wow I actually didn't expect that you would include my request thanks a lot! I used a different sound from a different mod for DRS available & deployed.
The range of volume and pitch works fine for me. I'm old so lower pitch sounds are best, and I think the 600hz beep at -6db works great. Nice job, mate.
Good idea, still bad implementation.
All sounds are way to loud - no volume changes, all sounds at the same pitch, dbs - i'm afraid would be enough only one Beep per changes .
Need to improve, and it will be a good app ;)
Hi! Thanks for the feedback. Yet I'm a bit confused by it. I included 45 mp3 files; 5 different tones (600, 1300, 2000, 2700 and 3400hz), each in 9 different audio level (0,-3,-6,-9,-12,-15,-18,-21,-24 dB). Once they are correctly placed in the “C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub\Sounds” folder, they should all appear in the event target list (after restarting Simhub).
