dear @kriechbaum I would like you to ask just one FMOD question about your OM471 sound. you may first please see this post on the ETS2 1.38 thread. my question for you is whether you have set any priority in FMOD at master track for your project or not. I experience sounds cut offs while in crowded motorways or cities but I need to mention that I play with traffic sounds for all Ai vehicles, so huge additional work for FMOD.
the truck is losing the sound completely for few seconds mostly at high speed and at engine brake and this first time I noticed it while driving with your sound. I did not check with other sounds yet in ETS2 but I do not have these cuts in ATS with the same traffic sounds and density. many thanks!

@cip

Hello !
This problem i remember that someone in this forum had this issue too, it's (we suppose) when the whole sound file size is too big for the game, it will cut off some sounds when the memory is saturated. He had this because some of his files samples were too big, around 20mb files with few minutes length this is way too long and heavy. My sounds samples quality is heavier than the scs standarts but are totally reasonnable, because i only make them with a lengh on 2-3 seconds. So for your issue i think you should have a look at your files sizes and lenght. For the priority at master track i just let them by default, i force nothing in Fmod.

thank you dear @kriechbaum both for your reply and also for all your sound mods! I know that your samples aren't large because I unpacked your bank and all your 64 .wav sounds were under 1 Mb. I also know that all my 1.000 traffic events are using ogg mono format sounds although some may be long (10-12 seconds) as size there are under 1 Mb with the exception of emergency sirens which are longer, up to 30 sec and 1-2 Mb.
of course, if we sum up all these sounds it may reach possibly a limit somewhere but the interesting question is why I don't have issues with other truck sound mods? I had a long drive with one Scania sound (don't remember exactly which but certainly your sound mod too) and with no issues at all, also no issues in ATS except sometimes the engine brake is cut off.
an interesting fact happened also with Drive safely's Sound fixes pack at the moment he added some more tire noise sounds which messed up all traffic sounds :lol: therefore somewhere there must be a limit between engine truck sounds and traffic sounds, while individually everything is fine.
what I noticed is that SCS changed in the 1.38 sound template the priority of the engine truck sound from medium to highest which might make the difference. only if you want, for you next sound mod would you please use highest priority as well for the master track of your bank and I would gladly make a test to check if highest priority would make a difference in driving.
as individual sounds size I don't think there are issues since I added some rock song as menu music in in .wav format and the average size of one song is 100 Mb
many thanks once again !
