Boeing 737 Classic Sound - the awesome sounds & special fx of the REAL CFM56 3b1 & 3c engine variants in ONE Special Edition Set.

Recorded at a number of different, international airport locations including aprons, hangars and taxiways these accurate, digitally balanced high quality files represent the most stunning sounds of the REAL Boeing 737-Classic you will hear.

Engine sounds from the flight deck were recorded on real Boeing 737- 300 and 400 Series flight decks. Start up sounds and other shut down effects actually recorded outside remote maintenance hangars.

THE REAL CLASSIC SOUND FOR THE BOEING 737-300/400/500 SERIES Introductory note from our Classic Sound recording engineer:
"Like on the Ng Series Sound Set we called '4Sound', the start up sound of most CFM56 engines from the flight deck is barely audible. This is due to the fact that a lot of noise is heard on the deck after start up such as packs, air con and so on. During taxi, take off and in flight, wind, packs, air cond etc; are all vieing for the high end to mid range area. What we heard on the decks we designed in the sound. Like the Ng (but a little noisier and with a less cleaner sound that the Ng has) the tonal value of some ranges, like engines starting up is lower than the tonal value of the mid to high range sounds of the packs (and is bass-resisted) so the sound is felt more than it is heard (but you will hear it like the pilots do). Sound of the engine startup in the FS cockpit is discernable on this set as a low bass change with a whistle or 'whine'. To bring out the real Classic Sound this time, we added more bass and then took the sound back to the cockpit for comparison. After a weeks work of balancing and grading (as well as some dramatic SFX work) we achieved near on 90% parity to the real thing. The finished overall effect is almost uncanny in representing the real thing."
Note: Our Lead Developers conclusion for playback is the same as the NG - play them at position 21 or set your sound to around 70% volume - the Classic Sounds are best played on good, bass/woofer- equipped speaker systems to get as close to the "reality effect" as possible:


The Classic Sound Package was designed professionally using PRO edit and mixing facilities and tested on high-end systems and low end laptop sound type environments. Each CFM56 Sound Set:
  • Replicates exactly the real Ng CFM56 engine sound (recorded as it was from the real thing).
  • Emulates the closest sound fx to a real 3b1 and/or 3c engine.
  • Includes a broad range of Special Effects for each engine set.
  • Mixed Multi Channel sound sets (stereo for 16-bit enhanced qaulity with MONO general sounds to improve frame rates on low end machines and keep disk space to the minimum).
  • Sound Configuration Installers help you install your sounds to your chosen payware or freeware aircraft easily and simply. There are so many features on the Boeing 737-Classic Sound set that, to include them all would take up a number of pages. Here we include just a few of the effects:
  • Runway clack and clunk sounds are now modelled as you hit the many different (virtual) ruts and joins of the runways and taxiways! In FS, these features were not modelled but, Ariane brought you a FIRST with Ariane Boeing 737 Ng 4Sound RWYFX and do the same here; now you can actually HEAR the real sounds of ruts, joins and center lights on the runways and taxiways, at all stages of taxiing or take off and landing. Take off rolls sound awesome! Taxiing takes on a new level of realism!
  • The sound of the front gear droning and whining can be heard onpressing the (G) key as it is stowed away (this is quite discernable since it is under the Captain and the First officers seats).
  • NEW Special announcements on the German Version automatically chime in on landings.
  • On retraction or deployment, both drone and wind rush can be heard during gear up or down. (The clunk of the gear nose doors closing is also mixed into the nose gear edit for further effect).
  • Packs sounds. The loud and discernable sound of the packs can be heard at different levels and the air pressure or airspeed/throttle speed is changed. The finished effects are stunning.
  • Familiar APU background sounds add to ambience.
  • Landing sounds, Wheel strike and front gear rattle are all included.
  • Clunks of compressing nose gear is heard on landing.
  • Position yourself outside and you will note the whine of the engines preceeded by the familiar sound of the CFM56 start up - ( sounds taken from a Boeing 737-300 3b1 using directional stable rec. mikes).
  • On the CFM56 3c file set, the heavy roar of the engines can be heard on full power after firewalling the throttles.
  • Runway clack and clunk sounds - as in real life - will also be heard from outside at the point of touchdown and during roll out or taxiing in the background!
  • The complete process of startup can be heard. Both engines will phase with each other as the start up process concludes and the engines stabilise.
Many other sound effects are also featured including AP disconnection, flap clunk (with alternative sound available), touchdown sets for left, right and center gear, roll and roar, wind noises, packs, air cond, glideslope warning, stall yoke rattle, etc;
