There could be few better combinations for DCC onboard sound than the superb locomotive control qualities of ZIMO and Loksound decoders with authentic UK locomotive sound programmed for realistic operation; welcome to DigitrainSound.

The range of locomotive sounds offers a wide choice of diesel and an ever growing range of steam and electric options.

Any of our available "ZS" soundfiles can be loaded onto any of the current Zimo sound decoders. These presently include MX 644, 645, 646, 648 and 695 types. Use the white search boxes above to go to "Digitrainsound Zimo"

                 Any of our "DS" prefixed soundfiles can be preloaded onto any of the range of Loksound V4 decoders, Micro Standard 8 or 21 pin and the XL types. Use the white search boxes above to go to "Digitrainsound Loksound"

Our sounds range from useful generics using modified available sounds from Loksound and Zimo's own libraries suitably altered to give them a British feel. These will be labelled as such and although very good will never be described as genuine. 

At the other end of the scale though are the genuine sound schemes recorded from working locos and worked up into fully accurate sound profiles giving the very best result for the end user. These are created by two well known figures in DCC sound circles, Paul Chetter and Tony Molyneux. Their work is well respected, widely used and Digitrains is pleased to be able to offer work from these two high quality sources.

There is always new work under development and new sounds become available several times a year.

Key to suffix letters
D = Digidrive, these are the latest easy to drive soundfiles, giving you rapid response to throttle input and the option to coast using a function key.
G = Generic soundfile created to capture the character of the locomotive
M = Multidrive, multiple sounds sets to enable you to choose how your loco drives. For example, with steam you can choose between light and heavy loading. With diesel you can choose between standard driving and manual notching.

A = Activedrive, a brand new set of features on Zimo sound decoders. There are 2 distinctly different new features, namely "dynamic inertia" where a loco's response to acceleration is dependant upon how fast you open the throttle. If you're gentle then the loco will have higher settings for CV3 than if you open the throttle very fast when the CV3 settings will be reduced and the loco will accelerate faster. 
Then there is "real braking" where you use a function button as a true brake control. When you reduce the throttle settings the loco will coast and only lose speed very slowly this will require the driver to really apply the brakes to slow the train. Both these features combine to make driving your model much more like being in charge of a real loco. Look out for the new "A" suffix.
