    Default MCLW EMD710 set

    I've officially completed tests on the upgraded MC_EMD710 sound set, which means you should expect the set to be available on my site fairly soon... The primary part of the update was to add traction motor sounds to the SD50 and SD60 sounds, plus a few other tweaks and edits here and there... You can expect the EMD710 set to be back out around Groundhog Day...

    The AC44V3 set hasn't been touched yet; I've got a few things I'd like to update on it yet... I'm not giving an estimate on when it will be done, but as many of you know, I don't like to keep you all waiting...

    This is just a progress update so I don't have to answer it again later...

    will the existing aliases work with the upgraded set or will we need to go back change them?

    Nice. Now I don't have to listen to just my upgraded sounds!

    If I'm not mistaken the SD50 used the 645 series instead of the 710 series..

    Claude, yes the SD50/GP50 series did use the 645.

    Anthony, don't start that crap.

    I can't stand it when all I have is one sound pack, they start to synchonize and blend in with eachother if I have the same locomotive, Di, don't you start it.

    You're correct, SD50s have 16-645F3B engines, and the SD50 sounds in this sound set are very definitely 645 WAVs... Why did I include them in the EMD710 set? Even I have no idea... LOL

    Don't worry about it. It'll all work out in the end.

    I know why you did. The SD50s, when built, were equipped with the new EMD turbo. This changed the sound of the engine and gave off that 710 feel. It's the same thing as the MP36PHs by MPI. They all have 645s but were equipped with the latest EMD turbo configuration in 2003. So yes, SD50s and SD60s/70s/80s/90s sound ALMOST the same.

    Hell, i'll admit it. I cheated and used a Metra MP36 for my 710 set. Sounds pretty darn close in my opinion, however. Of course it's not perfect, but then again, whose is?
