Replay sound issues

ArcadexxArcadexx Member New Car Smell
Ok, for a while this as been bothering me..

On the replay, I can barely hear my own car...is this normal? Everyone experience this as well?

Overall the sound is a bit meh, while driving it's not so bad but during the replays....that's another story.

    The same for me on PC since the 2015 edition.

    It's really weird and a bit off, breaks the immersion of watching it a bit. 

    Dirt rally for ex as really good audio, I don't get why F1 as so many audio issues

    F1 has less development time than DiRT, and the F1 audio team has only been in this form since April 2016. We've taken some big steps forward with the audio this year.

    I really hope so, for me at least sound is the major factor for immersion in a racing game.

    Looking forward for august 25th

    Depends on what you mean with big step forward. The introduction of the V10 sounds which sound quiet good in the content that can already be found on the internet, I'd say "yes".

    if you're talking about the sounds that we can hear from the available content regarding the car sounds of the 2017 livery, the replay sound (found in the RB Verstappen vid), the downshift sounds, the turbo whistles etc.? I, from what I have heard, wouldn't be calling it "big steps forward" to be honest. At least that's my opinion.. 
  • ArcadexxArcadexx Member New Car Smell
    Same, that video was a disappointment for the current liveries.

    The V10 sounds very good, but the 2017 car sounded even worse than what we have now on the F1 2016 version.

    I really want to be wrong and believe the sound will be raw, real and powerful.

    yeah it been very poorly replicated(Tv cam) it doesn't sound right and lacks.. after 6 years they haven't got it right. hope this year it going to be massively improved.

    Like, go pro on the car...record, done, it will sound better than what we have now in the 2016 version for sure, even on TV sounds better and it's not high quality.... Ofc I'm being ironical but you get the point

    May I ask why you find the replays so important? Do you commentate for a league?

    Personally, I barely ever use the replay feature so I haven't really noticed the issue you talk about, my main worry is the sounds when driving and like you say I dont find it too bad. Obviously it would be great if everything is as realistic as possible, but I'm guessing CM put the replay feature to a slightly lower priority.

    Also, which camera angle are you talking about? Don't forget the realistic sound for cockpit cam isn't the same as the sounds you hear on the TV - obviously the TV is on the T-cam, which is obviously higher than the driver and the sound likely changes as it passes through the bodywork etc.

  • KTBNLKTBNL Member New Car Smell
    Even for not being high quality.. Compare it to when playing a 128kb/s compared to the 320kb/s version of an MP3. The essential elements in the sounds will be the same. There's only a difference in sound quality.
    So I do hope we're wrong, but I'm afraid not.
  • KTBNLKTBNL Member New Car Smell
    Maybe it would be an idea for 2018 to work with a 3rd party. Or at least an outside sound engineer to collaborate with. 
    I think it doesn't hurt for a smaller company, compared to the big studio's like EA, to not just be able to get the sound right for the community, but also to upgrade their own quality internally and maybe come up with different idea's to work around to certain recording restrictions when it comes to working with F1 Teams.

    I'm not overly critical about what as been done, let me note that first.

    But seeing what is being made with mods on other games etc..it's hard not be a bit disappointed.

    I get it if the game needs some sort of approval first, and working with a F1 license is tricky, the teams won't give out much info because even engine notes produce some kind of secret..I get it, but tweaking the sound a bit here and there should at least provide more immersion.

    And by the way, I do love replays, it's important for me and for alot of people I reccon.

    I'm just here wishing CM really have it better this year.

    Are you talking about the trailer or you actually heard it from the beta?
  • kraM1tkraM1t Member Co-Driver
    I'm not at liberty to say                               
  • FlybyFlyby Member Unleaded


    so it doesn't sound like this ?  LOL     ..Will there ever be an answer as to why. ?
  • kraM1tkraM1t Member Co-Driver
    I mean, it sounds vaguely like it... if you had a 3 inch thick sound damping foam over the microphone whilst it recorded lol
