The Loksound 5 Range of DCC Sound Decoders
All of Marwick range of sound projects are available on the new Loksound 5 range of decoders. The Marwick range can be purchased from Wickness Models and Marks Trains. The Wickness Site will shortly be fully updated to reflect the Loksound 5 availability, for now you can order and pre order Loksound 5’s through the existing V4 DCC sound decoder pages which can be viewed here. Projects will be supplied on Loksound 5 from Friday 1st March 2019
The LokSound decoder of the fifth generation has been completely redeveloped. By using a new, powerful 32-bit processor, all the features of the previously known LokSound decoders have been significantly improved: LokSound 5 decoders play up to 10 sound channels simultaneously, each channel achieving hi-fi quality thanks to 16-bit resolution and 31250Hz sample rate, With a LokSound 5 decoder, the sound quality and dynamic range of your locomotives will almost match the original. 128 Mbit noise storage provide enough capacity.
The new Marwick Class 37 fully upgraded to 16-bit resolution and 31250Hz sample rate can be found here
LokSound 5 decoders feature even better engine load control with up to 50 kHz clock speed and noise-optimized motor control so that in the future even bell anchor or gauge 1 engines with excellent low-speed driving characteristics will drive silently.
LokSound 5 decoders have numerous outputs for controlling light and additional functions and can control RC servos or SUSI modules as required.
In addition, every LokSound 5 decoder is a true multi-protocol decoder with all four known data formats: in addition to DCC with RailComPlus, they all understand the M4 format and automatically log on to modern Märklin® control units. Support for Motorola® and Selectrix® makes it possible to use it with older control panels. Furthermore, every (even N track!) LokSound 5 decoder can be run on analogue DC and AC systems. The desired operating mode is automatically detected.
Depending on the central unit, up to 32 functions are possible, which can be assigned any special functions with the uniquely flexible ESU function mapping. Three new, individually adjustable brake controls, as well as a two-stage heavy-load simulation, bring just as much joy of playing as the new random functions, with the help of which light effects can also be controlled at random. To meet the different sizes and power requirements of the vehicles, LokSound 5 decoders are offered in various versions
