Tsunami2 Reactive Dynamic Digital Exhaust (DDE)



 

 


The new TSU2 introduces the new Reactive Dynamic Digital Exhaust (DDE) feature to the diesel and electric decoders while remastering the steam DDE.  

DDE alters the overall tone and intensity of the exhaust to mimic the work the locomotive is actually doing.  


This month, we have another example of the Econami’s what sets Econami apart from many of the higher priced decoders on the market today: the inclusion of the popular 7-band functioning equalizer, as was found on the Tsunami decoders.

The Equalizer (EQ) is a popular feature that allows the user to adjust the sound profile created by the decoder to match the strengths of the speaker chosen for the installation.  This feature helps a speaker reproduce better, clearer, and louder sounds without causing distortion or clipping, especially when a speaker tries to reproduce a physically impossible frequency.  The EQ can also be used to adjust the overall tone of the sound profile so that each loco using the same sound file(s) can sound different and have its own “personality!”

The CVs for the EQ have moved with the introduction of the 3rd generation CV roster in the Econami, so now CV 225 is the control CV (previously was CV153) and CVs 226-232 are the 7 bands of the Equalizer (previously were CVs 154-160). Go ahead and try it out to get that perfect setting or give us a call and we can offer some suggested values to get the most out of your model!

Traveling across flat land, the loco is simply maintaining speed.  

But when the loco encounters a grade, the engineer applies more throttle to get the train up the hill.  

The new DDE processor calculates these changes by watching the strain or load on the motor and adjusts the exhaust to appropriately simulate the work the engineer would be doing to the throttle to create that sound.  

The new Tsunami2 has auto-calibration provisions to easily allow you to set up the DDE to create the realistic experience.  

Check out the procedure on page 22 of the Diesel User’s Guide or on page 21 of the Steam User's Guide
 
 



Once this is set up, you too can have realistic operating DDE effects.
