Hi Alan

Have a look and hear this on you tube

Would the audio track from this video meet your needs if put into a module?

Brilliant Rob !!! That is just the sound I am looking for. I am a rookie and sound modules are a new game to me. How would I go about capturing that sound and how is it done. The only thing different is that one has a wet exhaust and the boat I am building a replica of had a dry one but no matter, I'd go for that . Any info or advice would be very much appreciated. Do you have to ask for permission to use somebodies video ? What module is the one to buy etc. etc. etc.

Hi Alan

I am looking into developing a little unit that you can drop into any boat with any desired sound. I have ordered some parts and awaiting their arrival to see if they are suitable for what I have in mind. they should be here in a week or so.

The sound units which are available to buy I find to be very expensive and one type of sound. The unit I have in mind would be less than £15 and rechargeable so no wiring involved with interchangeable sounds.

If it works out as I imagine I will put the Penta engine sound on it and send it to you to evaluate. 😊
