Whilst we have seen plenty of previews of the modelling work on the Aerosoft Airbus Professional series, this is the first time we’ve heard what it will sound like. As confirmed by Mathijs a few days ago, Turbine Sound Studios are back working with the developer on the engine sounds for the aircraft.
The preview above showcases the new sounds you’ll hear both internally and externally from the plane. Although this is a A318 in the images, this is the sound-scape from the A319 series. Confusing! These are completely brand new sounds – not reworks of older files from the team.
Mathijs said that the work from Turbine Sound Studios was an important element of the work that needed to be completed for the project to progress, and now that they’re nearing completion, it appears that the series of aircraft will be coming out soon. In fact, he even stated that they now have a release date in mind – but of course that information was kept undisclosed at this point in time. It’s worth noting that when the first set of aircraft are released (A318 / A319), then the time line of releases should then kick in. For those that need reminding, here it is:
- A318/A319 Professional
14 days after A318/A319 Professional release
- A320/A321 Professional
5 weeks later
- A318/A319 Professional & A320/A321 Profession service Pack 1
This Service pack will replace the current PFD and ND with newer version that are better in resolution and designed to be used in 2d mode (the other gauges should already work in 2d mode at that time)
Unknown period later, but we guestimate something like 4 weeks.
- A330 Professional
Unknown period latert
- 318/A319 Professional & A320/A321 Professional & A330 Professional service Pack 2
Note we skip the A330 SP1 to keep the names uniform. This service pack will bring all aircraft to the same status and will update the smaller busses with the knowledge gathered in the meantime.
Thanks to DagelijksGamer for the heads up.
