By RuggbuttThis is a complete stand-alone soundpack and a comprehensive sound modification which provides sound within all DCS World modules - including DCS FC3. (187mb)
It installs via the ModMan v7.3 utility, as modified for use within DCS World by Tom Weiss, which is available from LockOnFiles (links are below).
In short; if you have seen videos of jets flying through Mach Loop in the UK, that is basically what this high sonic realism sound modification sounds like.
There are few areas that were not reviewed and altered within this new version. I've changed or improved many sounds within this new version and greatly developed the sound imaging quality. These have collectively enabled a more compelling sound environment to be constructed. Areas previously not worked on much have been within v2.0. All helicopters have been bought up to the standards of the jets, with more realistic approaches, flybys and loitering. Armour and vehicle sounds have all been replaced, and re-configured. All weapons, explosions and damage sounds have likewise been reviewed, with numerous improvements, resulting in a much improved and extended ground-battle environment. Given this sim will increasingly become fastjet dominated the cockpits have all been reviewed for both A-10C and FC3 fast jets plus associated external mechanical control sounds reset accordingly for optimising to various flight modes.
What I'm doing within this sound mod has never been achieved prior. It's the first example of where it's possible to comprehensively depict a real exterior jet sound with 100% pitch accuracy within samples, plus realistic audio fidelity with distance and aspect changes. The result is a very realistic and compelling modification that is no gimmick. What you hear in this mod is the real thing--real jet sound--in playback. I developed the means for a sound engine like DCS World to portray real jet sound with almost complete accuracy, in most situations. This has not been heard by anyone from a combat jet flight sim prior to this sound modification doing it.
I developed the theory and base equations behind how this approach could be made to work during 2000 and 2001. But DCS World was the first sim sound-engine where I suspected it might contain the necessary acoustic model accuracy and modding accessibility needed to finally try to make this work accurately. After some testing it became clear the technique would indeed work in DCS World and would accurately correct for vector changes to Doppler shift, which normally distorts real jet sounds. In this sound pack for the first time they're not being distorted in pitch at all. They utilise the pitch within the real sound files exactly and accurately.
The practical result for the sound that the jets make within the sim is that it creates unprecedented and outstanding sound depictions that are almost too good to be true. So the tedious work of enabling and developing the approach and establishing that it does work has been done. The result is a dramatically improved audio simulation, that now has unlimited and unprecedented realism potential from here.
It's been my long-term goal to eventually get to this level of jet-fighter audio simulated realism, so it's gratifying to have finally gotten there.
A thankyou to Keshman for donation of sounds I've integrated to greatly improve this version's ground-battle detail and especially battle ambience effects.
Install to DCS World using SkyPat's "ModMan" utility's normal ModMan installation procedure.

By zzzspacev1.2 UPDATE for zzzspace REAL SOUND for DCS World
Version 1.2 is a large 'update' for the original mod, "zzzspace REAL SOUND v1.0 for DCS World.zip".
This mod is for "DCS World" and provides sound support for the following DCS World modules;
- DCS A-10C
- DCS BLack Shark 2.0
- DSC Combined Arms (in BETA testing)
It does not provide any specific support for the P-51 Mustang (BETA) module. People using the P-51 module will need to use the originally supplied sound files.
This update maintains compatibility for online coop multiplay games but some servers may object to non-standard .sdef files on mp client computers. There is no way around this, as realistic sound editing requires massive alterations to almost every standard DCS World *.sdef file.
If server admins wish they may use these latest .sdefs to verify sdef contents on their mp client's machines, if thw admin or squad wish to require all sever users to have the REAL SOUND mod installed.
This mod is not available for other of ED's sims, however it has been reported by a user that REAL SOUND MOD v1.0 and v1.1 did work when installed into DCS A-10C v188.8.131.52, but it was not designed for that version of the sim.
This update must be copied ON TOP OF an existing installation of zzzspace REAL SOUND v1.0 for DCS World. You can obtain that mod from this link if you don't already have it:
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR V1.2 UPDATE
(1) Unzip to an empty folder using any preferred unzipping program.
(2) Copy the extracted "DCS World" folder, as one block into this folder:
C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics
Do not copy the extracted folder into any other location.
Say 'yes' to any and all replacements of folders and files, when asked.
(3) Go into DCS World main screen --> Options --> Audio Tab and ensure the audio sliders are set to their maximum (full right).
But you may set the 'Music' slider and GUI sliders to preferred settings.

FINAL RELEASE - OVERVIEW:
This is a sound-realism modification for Eagle Dynamics "DCS World" that radically revises the sounds and playback configuration within this simulation. It provides users of the sim the most advanced and real-sound sound modification currently available for any PC-based Jet fighter based tactical combat simulation. External and internal sound environments have been carefully detailed and tuned to provide a level of immersion previously unattainable in a modern combat flight simulation.
ONLINE PLAY COMPATIBILITY
The mod was tested online with zero incompatibility or conflicts reported.
Note that I removed the audio within the 'Betty' files, 'ShootShoot', 'WarningWarning' and 'LaunchAuthorised'.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE DOWNLOADED ZIP FILE
(1) Copy and backup the entire folder;
C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Sounds
And all of its subfolders and contents to known backup location.
This is your 'uninstall' backup insurance policy - KEEP IT.
(2) Unzip the downloaded ZIP file in an empty folder using any preferred unzip program.
