SD70ACe Sound File Coming
« on: February 24, 2017, 06:42:45 PM »
I emailed the guys at Ring Engineering asking if they have any plans for a SD70ACe file with the 16-710-G3C prime mover with start up sequence and air assist start. They emailed back saying they are working on their outstanding full digital original recordings of a SD70ACe 16-710-G3C with warning and air assist startup, and working on getting it formatted and released this year. I'm really looking forward to this file.

Welcome to the group Cade!  Yes, Ring has been working on this file as well as a few others that were provided to them by one of our extremely helpful fellow members.  The quality of these new recordings is top-notch.  I have the GEVO-12 beta and it is spectacular.  Ring dumbed it down a bit for a possible release candidate (the beta was huge), but I'm trying to convince him to keep it as it was.

I'll be looking forward to the 16-710-G3C as well as the G3B recordings coming out.  I know he has both.

The one prime mover file that he doesn't have that is SORELY needed is a very good 645-E3 from a SD40-2.  So if anyone has access to a SD40-2.....let's hear it!

I have 2 SD40-2 locos and the current 645 turbo is close but the 645-E3 is ideal. Now the 20-645 is great and I have that file in 2 Genesis F45s.

I also have the 20-645 in two of my Genesis F45s and the 20-645 file is great. Im also waiting for the SD40-2 645E3 file.

I ended up using the 645-20 in my SD40-2's because it sounds much closer to a 16-645E3 than Ring's current 645 Turbo file.  It had much better turbo whine and close to the correct pitch.  Either way, a new high-quality recording of a real 645E3 will be very welcome indeed.
