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.
