Mr too? - Perhaps just a little unfair. I have both MrSoundguy and WheelTappersDCCsound 141/181 sound projects, and like both, they have their own strengths and weaknesses. Keith predominantly uses Zimo chips for his projects whereas Neil uses LokSound. Personally I prefer the 'prime mover' track (ie engine sound) on Neil's baby GM projects (ie 14/181). I understand Keith recorded his primer mover track from an actual Irish loco, which is laudable, however unfortunately the loco used sound rather ill, with a really annoying clinking noise at idle. Not an issue for the 071 or 201 projects. Neil has kindly customised some 141/181 projects for me and added extra tracks for various rail clank noises, flange squeal, etc. I like both offerings but feel Neil's projects are hardly "me too" as he has innovated with extra sounds (eg cascading coupling snatch as train starts off for loose coupled 1960s wagons, etc), and LokSound PowerDrive mode (ie full throttle) which is similar to Zimo/Keith's real drive. IMHO one 141/181 project sounds a little better, but the other is a little nicer to drive, but that's personal taste. A good pal of mine who had driven my locos with both 141/181 sound projects felt the other way. To summarise I rate both highly, different to drive, and sound a little different but nobody will be disappointed with either.
I don't know whose sound project is on these.
Ive use these in two 071s and a 201 and 4, 141/181s without any issues, on a recent visit to Hattons I was informed that these chips are supplied to them by DCC supplies. Most of my BR stock has these also. Again never had any issues
dont ask, i have specific reasons for this strange method of building
small Attic , It just fits 2 x 9x5 boards and a short mid section with an extra few meter runs both sides in holes in walls into small side attics. 2 levels built, 3rd is planned
Track = >100 metres peco 100 track all mostly laid, star shape bus, 2.5 and 1.5 twisted bus, block wiring, two rail isolated gaps, 7 metre bus runs including track, too many insulfrogs , 80% of layout is wired above board, due to low ceiling and it being kids layout, while I sorta understood 'power divisions' and the difference x circuit breakers and then track occupancy requirements, as most is manual, i'v left all that to the latter part of the build, which is where I am now at, i use sand to level tracks and underlay for ballest
when i get the next section of track layed i will upload it to IRM
