combined to bring you
There could be few better combinations for DCC onboard sound than the superb locomotive control qualities of ZIMO decoders with authentic UK locomotive sound programmed for realistic operation; welcome to DigitrainSound.
The range of locomotives' sounds offers a wide choice of diesel and growing range of steam options.
Any of our available "ZS" soundfiles can be loaded onto any of the current Zimo sound decoders. These presently include MX 644, 645, 646, 648 and 695 types.
To see the "ZS" soundfiles available now please click here
Coming on stream now is our unique range of Multidrive sound schemes. These have selectable different sound sets for your chosen loco type all loaded onto the same chip. For diesel locos you can choose between subclass variations or choose whether you want manual or automatic notching up and down of engine sounds. For steam there can be differences in the sounds of a lightly or heavily loaded engine or perhaps a choice of loco condition with leaking or non leaking cylinders. It all adds up to more choice and value from your sound decoders and more control at your fingertips.
Digitrainsound Zimo Multi-Drive Sound Projects
Thank you for visiting the DCC Sound section here at digitrains.co.uk; we try harder to provide you with the very best sound projects available.
All of our Zimo Multi-Drive sound decoders are accompanied with detailed notes which have been produced so that you may obtain the maximum satisfaction from your new Zimo sound decoder.
What is Multi-Drive?
This is a system developed exclusively for us by Paul Chetter, a regular contributor to Hornby Magazine on DCC sound related issues. You may have met him on the Hornby Magazine stand at model railway exhibitions. The sound recordings used were either made by Paul himself or provided by other members of firstname.lastname@example.org and Zimo-DCC@yahoogroups.com
The decoders have been programmed in such a way that you, the user, may change the way that the sounds respond to your driving style or needs. This avoids the need for reprogramming and all the additional costs that would bring.
Each of our Multidrive soundfiles has its own set of ‘Multi-Drive’ features; Steam projects usually provide ‘heavy train’ and ‘light loco’ options, Diesels usually give alternative diving styles,’ automatic’ or ‘manual notching’. All of them are packed with a variety of sounds from the actual locos featured.
Also available a range of "DS" type sounds for loading onto our Loksound decoders.
Some of these are our old favourites including many tuned generics for steam.
But there is also a growing range of Lok V4 Specific new diesel and electric sounds with new steam to follow.
Note ZS and DS files cannot be loaded on other than Zimo and Loksound decoders respectively!
