Sound project



  • the sound material of the MÁV V63 type locomotive,
  • the sound material was made using recordings of locomotives with track numbers V63 016, V63 034, V63 155, V63 006,
  • the recordings were made between 2012 and 2018,
  • 8-bit resolution
  • the sound material
    • freely editable with our DigiSoundEditor sound editing program,
    • can be downloaded freely with our DigiProgram download program,
  • the downloadable dtt file contains the recommended CV settings for locomotives with ACME PluX22 decoder sockets, loadable into DigiSound-3.5 (from v27), 4.5 (from v27) and DigiSound-5.5 decoders. 
  • The dtt file under the “Downloads” tab can be opened with an application called DigiProgram, making it easier to see, manage, write and read the locomotive’s CV parameters.
