I hear a rumour that sound has been dramatically improved!

Is it true?

Imo sound has deffinately been approved.

So much so that I noticed the first time I flew in AEP.

When a boggie slides up on my tail I can hear his engine now. When he fire's, I can hear the strike's on my airframe.

I have an audigy 2 zs. I've used the latest creative and Kx project driver's. With 1.22 I could not run 32 channels or I would no longer hear voice comm's from the AI. I was forced to start a mission with 16 channels and then go change to 32 once the mission started. Ai comm's would then work until the end of the mission. This is now fixed.

Im running 32 channel's, surround, full 3d engine mode, 44khz sounds, radio chatter, and audio enhancements/acceleration checked. I haven't noticed any issue's so far.

I wasnt satisfied with 1.22's sound and I considered it a step backwards from the release cd. Im very glad the team tweaked the sound engine for AEP's release.

I would love to see some more change's though. AI radio comm's are one aspect that would benefit from further tweaking. The addition of proper callsign's would be a plus.

Engine sounds while very good, could always stand improvement until we reach that plateau of 100% realism.
