Sound of speed

For our second release we really wanted to experiment with a fast jet aircraft, so why not go for the fastest jet? Enter the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird; one of the most awe-inspiring aircraft ever!

The noise of the twin Pratt & Whitney J58 turbojet engines is second to none and we went to great lengths to recreate an accurate sound image. We also added in dynamic fly-by effects that add to the experience.


As a special feature, we've included an optional pressurized suit simulation. In real life, you cannot fly the aircraft without it.

Want to hear what fast and loud sounds like? Have a look at the promotional video for an impression. The sound package is available through SimMarket and the X-Plane.org Store.

About FMOD SD Series: With our SD Series sound packages, we strive to add high quality audio to aircraft that we cannot record directly in the field (i.e. none are flying anymore or are difficult to access). The result being we use synthesized/mixed samples to build the sound package. Overall, SD Series sound packages are slightly less feature rich than our premium "FMOD Experience" line-up.


Born out of passion for aircraft engine noise, SimAcoustics was established in 2019 to cater to the needs of add-on developers for modern flight simulator software such as Flight Simulator X, Prepar3D and X-Plane. In 2020 we added ready made sound packages for end-users to our portfolio.


No matter the scenario, our goal is to immerse the end-user through highly authentic sound environments that push the limits of the respective sound system.
