Humming engine noise in cockpit.

I'm really enjoying the Taifun, and thank you for the new auto-pilot addition - very handy indeed!

I have a problem with the internal sound, however. In addition to what you would normally expect from a piston engine, there is a loud upper/mid-range hum. I don't know what it is supposed to replicate ( wind noise maybe ? ). It is so uncomfortable that I have to fly the aircraft with the sound turned right down, almost to the point where I can't hear it at all.

Could iniBuilds have a look at this humming noise, and maybe reduce it ? Or, better still, remove it altogether so that I can hear the engine itself ? Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Gumbyger, thanks for the response.

It is difficult to describe a sound by words alone.  The noise is a constant throbbing note, louder than all the other sounds that you would normally associate with a piston engine i.e. pistons' ignition, exhaust, propeller etc. It's there once the aircraft is at normal flying speed, but much quieter when on the ground. The nearest I can describe it is similar to the sound when riding on the London Underground! It seems to be louder in my right ear- if that's any help

Sorry, I can not be more precise. If that is how the engine and aircraft sound in real life, then fair enough. But I find I have to keep the speaker volume at a low setting in order to tolerate it. Very uncomfortable, for me anyway.

Yes, I'll try reinstalling it and see if that cures the problem. It seems I'm the only one who has the issue and if, as you say, the developers have checked it over, then there's not much that can be done. I'll let you know here if re-installing has any effect. Thanks again. 🙂
