YouChoos Class 47 sound upgrades

Digital sound specialist YouChoos has created a brand-new sound file for the ever-popular Class 47 diesel-electric utilising the latest ZIMO MS series decoders. MIKE WILD shows how it can be used to upgrade the outgoing 21-pin generation Bachmann Class 47.

DIGITAL SOUND is one of the most interactive parts of the world of digital control, and there are new advances in technology which chip manufacturers and sound producers are embracing to create the most realistic sound profiles we have seen yet.
