Boeing 727 HD Pilot Edition Sound Pack for FSX/P3D1 reviews
If you have been using FSX or FS2004 for some time now, you will no doubt have noticed that the simulator tends to be lacking a little bit in terms of its overall style and presentation. The sounds aren’t up to the same standards as other parts of the simulation experience, and this can quite seriously hinder your enjoyment of the entire process – thankfully, there are many solutions available to help correct any problems with the sound that you face.

Sound Pack Compatibility Note: This sound pack will work with any aircraft model, both freeware or payware in FSX and P3D.
This excellent package by the impressive Turbine Sound Studios can give you all the help that you need in really understanding how to take things forward and get a far better level of involvement and performance. Everything that you hear in this package has been captured from the real thing.
Additionally, the sounds have been balanced and improved to make sure that they come through at a specific time – this makes a huge difference in terms of the overall feeling and atmosphere as sounds will now fit with the actual experience that you are seeing unfolding in front of you on-screen.
By creating that kind of positive atmosphere and making it much easier to actually get involved in the whole flight process, this package gives you the chance to fly a Boeing 727 aircraft in a more authentic manner than you’ve ever been able to in any vanilla flight simulator.
Takes full control of the original sounds and replaces them with new, authentic sounds that work perfectly in favor of the aircraft itself, creating the genuine sounds and thrills that you would expect to hear when flying the real thing
The variety of sounds is massively impressive, too. From the rolling and the rumble of the cockpit and the cabin as the plane picks up speed and altitude to the way that the engines screech back to your every response, getting used to how this aircraft flies and performs is incredibly easy once you know what you should be looking for!
The incredibly change in the sounds in terms of their volume depending on where you are is one of the most impressive features that we have seen in a flight simulator. It’s a hard thing to get right, of course, but it makes a staggering change when you are able to fly an aircraft properly thanks to just the sound being correct
All of the sounds are accurate and taken from the right sources – they are then remastered and improved to give you full HD sound output, making sure the audio matches the quality of the video on screen
Many smaller sounds have been added in along the way, too. This makes sure that nothing is left out and you can really start to react and change the way that your aircraft is flying depending on where you are going and what kind of temperature and conditions you’re in

Having been a regular user of the Turbine Sound Studios products in the past I had a rough expectancy of what I was getting when this package first came through for us. However, what I actually received was far more impressive than I had originally expected, despite already having high expectations. Given that it actually supersedes the sounds that are usually used, though, it can be a bit of a challenge from time to time to get used to the rather telling disparity in sound between the vanilla installation and this! Recorded in HD, they give you an incredibly deep sound that makes it incredibly easy to enjoy.
I took my curiosity to a new level recently and fired up a YouTube video of a Boeing 7272 flying to see what I thought of its accuracy in relation this package. It was hugely impressed by the close resemblance to the real thing - it must have taken hours to get it right and make it sound as effective as it does. I've always got time for new sound systems to be used in flight simulation as its such a huge part of flying in generic, so it's great to get used to it being at a high level and generally being incredibly impressive.
The best thing about it, though, is the sounds that change when you go into the cockpit. The noise is dropped from the outside of the aircraft, allowing you hearing a far more balanced and clear sound environment just as it would be in real-life.
For someone who takes realism extremely seriously when flying in a simulator I was incredibly impressed at just how close to the real thing they were able to take this. I always want to hear things to be clear and crisp, of course, but it kind of killed the realism when it all sounded the same from inside or outside the cockpit - that slight distortion and noticeable change is just what you would expect from the real thing so why should you not get it here, as well?
In terms of being able to sell the overall picture to you, this works expertly to create everything from the wind to the cockpit moving and working into action just as it would have sounded in real-life. I don' know where they get the sounds from but it's more or less what you would be expecting in terms of professional quality more importantly, though, is the fact that it's all so well put together.
I'd wager that most of us could find/download a set of stock aircraft sounds - but how many of us can blend it all together and make that authentic aircraft sound? Not many! It's something that takes a huge amount of talent and knowledge to pull off, and gives the entire experience a massive lift once it's working. I'd love to pay credit to the designers, really, because the difference here is massive; like night and day!
