Disappointing wheel sounds
I don't understand why a plane with so much love and work put into it is so lacking when it comes to sound on the ground - and by this I mean any type of wheel noise when taxing, braking and taking off. Touch down the only sound I ever here is when the nose wheel touches down. Nothing for the mains... No braking or decel sounds.
@st78bc We'd never heard of this before, nobody had ever mentioned this potential issue so we spoke directly to the sounds engineer. His reply for you:
"I ran a quick test on the latest build of the 146, I suspect there is a good chance this user has the headphone mode enabled in the audio settings. The touchdown sounds are mainly low frequency bump noise with a rattle as it would be in real life. Having the headphone mode enabled lowers all volumes significantly except those of callouts and aural warnings.
Of general note; the sound package is meant to provide a realistic representation of the noises you would hear during a touchdown. Contrary to smaller aircraft, brake noise (i.e. metal screeching) is not simulated as it is inaudible unless there is a material failure which is something that goes beyond the scope of the product."
First thing, worth checking whether you have headphone mode enabled?
