I know someone will have the answers!!  What I want to do is record the sound of a level crossing claxon, save it to something and then just push a button to sound the claxon noise, and when finished it resets so that if I were to push the button again it would do the cycle again .  No gates, no clever trigger just a button to trigger the sound recording. Any clever ideas if I don't have a computer in the loft to play the sound ? Looking forward to any input cheers John

It's relatively easy, John.

I have to go to work now, but I'll dig it out tonight.

Cheers

Hi John.

We couldn't get an operating theatre this morning, so I'm back doing the important stuff.   :lol:

A separate sound module will do the job.

I have a box under the layout, which plays the sounds of waves and seagulls.

The company I used is called Innovative Train Technology Products in West Hills, California.

http://www.ittproducts.com/

The owner, George was very helpful.  If  he doesn't have the sound file in stock, he will load your own file for you free of charge.

If you don't have a suitable sound file (.wav), I can make one for you if you can point me to a YouTube upload which is accurate.  I have no idea what a Claxon level crossing sound is like, so I will need some guidance with that.

If you find one, send me the link and I'll go from there.

harmony@adam.com.au

Cheers

That's the one Max.  Most British crossings have klaxon warnings just like that though some have each tone played for a little longer.

It's as plain as I want to record the sound as I'm not modelling the crossing at Long Rock just a sound effect to imagine the gates have dropped like the real thing before the train appears 5 minutes later like the real one 😂

Hmm.  I'm not sure that I understand, John.   :???:

So you have NO railway crossing on your layout, but you want to play the sound of one in the distance?

Is that right?

If so, then the ITT unit is the one for you.  It has push button as well as toggle switch capabilities and the sound sequence can run for as long as you like it to.

It also has a volume control.

I can take the sound from the YouTube clip and make a .wav file for you to send to George.

Yes that's it Max its just for sound effect. I've copied a vid link from youtube (not my vid) but at 10.30 the gates start to go before the HST comes through. With my Model Long Rock due to space, the gates will be just "off scene", so I want the gates to sound before the trains come "on scene" as in the real thing.    As for making sounds etc for me, I will say thanks but for a minute but please don't worry I'm not expecting anyone to do it for me, just whether there is a sound module such as a DCC sound decoder for a loco, that I could record a sound to and then press an address button to trigger the sound.  I know what I want to do but I'll confuse everyone else in the process !! :shock: ;-) !!

If you can find an old Version 3.5 Loksound decoder cheaply, you can load sounds into it and do the job.

This is one I did on an old one of Jeff SRMAN's 3.5's



The new V4's are very expensive by comparison.
