Public sound data - purpose of distribution and precautions

Purpose of distribution of OPEN SOUND DATA.

Desktop Station, as a provider of open control solutions for digital model railroading, is working with the DCC Electronic Craft Coalition and the counties, organizations, and individual users who support this activity to make DCC more enjoyable.

In the course of these activities, we have learned that there are individuals who have developed high-quality DCC sound data. However, this data is not available to the public for a variety of reasons. Below is a list of some of the most popular DCC projects in the world.

DesktopStation will financially support and work with creators who create sound data for DCC to create data that is completely free of copyright issues, and make the results available to Japanese DCC users in Japan for free. The purpose of this page is to make the results available to Japanese DCC users in Japan.

The sound data on this page is sponsored by DesktopStation and released under contract with the creators. Even if there is a request, we will not give permission. If you present it, please provide the URL to this page https://desktopstation.net/sounds/ to this page. This page is link-free. You may post the URL information on the web or in the journal without permission.

When creating Open Sound Data, please read the following Copyright and Performance Rights for Sound.

Please note


Preface The sound data published here has nothing to do with the railroad company or the car described. The sound data here is not related to any railroad company or vehicle.

The acceleration and deceleration are not based on real time, but are designed to look good on the model. In addition, there are different formats with different details, such as before and after the update, and the audio was not created with all of these details in mind. If you are concerned about it, please adjust it yourself and provide details.
