RailPro Discussion & Help / Re: How does the Brake sound work?
« Last post by ron045 on Today at 10:05:01 AM »
Thanks for the info... I'm sorry to be a pain but I just don't seem to understand how to get it to work.

I have Sound Set EMD 645 Turbo ULT sound file installed.
I have Auto Compressor Sounds enabled.

See the settings for the Brake function in the attached picture.  It is set for a momentary button.  I briefly changed it to an Maintained button but that did not work either.

I am confused by the comment, "Throttle needs to be at 0 for the brake button to have any effect as well."  I saw that in the manual too.  If the throttle is at zero then how does a braking sound occur?  Shouldn't the model be moving and coming to a stop?

Thanks!
Ron

Also be sure you have the compressor sounds turned on.  The brake squeal sound file is part of that set of sounds (compressor, air blasts, etc).  Throttle needs to be at 0 for the brake button to have any effect as well.

Only one horn sample to hear?

Two reasons.

First, without a motor load you cannot set stall current. When consisting, the LM is trying to balance the load between two motors and one of them has a stall current of zero.
Second, in operation the LM will continually try to lower the real motor current to raise the missing motor current thinking it is not pulling its share of the load.

I've never consisted to a LM with a stall setting of zero. Why don't you wire one up and let us know what happens. It would be interesting to know.

OK, that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.

Oops, forgot to mention that - you have to use the Brake button to stop the train. The Brake function will work regardless of sound file, you only get the squeal with an ULT file.

That's interesting. I don't get a squeal unless I push the button. I have several ULT files installed in different locomotives.

Do you have the EMD 645 Turbo ULT sound file installed or the non-ULT file? You get a brake squeal just before stopping when you have an ULT sound file installed
