Turbine Sound Studios has released their Beechcraft B-1900D PTC HD Soundpack for FSX and P3D.

If you’re not familiar with Turbine Sound Studios, also known as TSS, they are known for creating high quality soundsets for addon aircraft. They have packages available for many aircraft including the QualityWings 787, the PMDG 777, the PMDG 737, and have also made the soundset found in the TFDI 717 as well as the Aerosoft CRJ.

Their newest soundset is no different, having been recorded in high definition and compiled to meet Microsoftflightsimulator requirements. The soundset includes external engine sounds, internal engine sounds, wind sounds, cockpit environment sounds, and more. A full feature list can be found at the bottom of this article.

The soundpack has been developed for the Carenado B1900D for FSX and P3D but other models will work with it as well. It can be yours for a price of 13.38 euros on Simmarket.
