Adding sound brings John Allen’s Gorre & Daphetid RR to life!

For both Macintosh OS X and Windows, Startly Technologies software

QuicKeys in combination with RealPlayer provides an excellent platform for

adding sound to TrainPlayer. Sounds may be played at will or programmed

to integrate with train movements.

In the macros provided chuffing sounds increase and decrease with

acceleration and deceleration in relatively smooth transition. Steam,

squealing wheels, bell and whistle can be played separately or overlaid. Six

whistles are provided which may be played individually or combined.

Many computer users likely already have QuicKeys. If not, QuicKeys may be

purchased from Startly Technologies for $79.95 US.

RealPlayer is free from Real.
