Class 385 Sound Mod

The Class 385 is here in Train Sim World with an all new sound enhancement mod brought to you by Sepian Sound!

With Raph behind the wheel and my foot on the gas, we're delivering you an entirely new mix rebuilt through the Unreal Editor to get this Hitachi train sounding as good as possible. A combination of recordings from Sepian Sound, my own recordings, and synthetic reproductions to fill any gaps were used to boost the audio detail for this unit in as many ways as we can muster. So let's take a look at what this mod is made of:


Completely new traction sounds

  • Recordings from the Class 385 by Sepian Sound
  • Extensive sound cues built by Raph which cover the inverters and motors - inside and out
  • Separate interior and exterior rolling sounds and track joints

Reworked horn

  • Reproduced by ear to provide a more accurate warning horn
  • Sound mix differentiates the exterior and interior of the train with different clips

Tailored safety system audio

  • Corrected sounds for AWS and Driver's Vigilance Alarms
  • Introduced additional samples for starting up the systems

Softer recordings

  • Touches push buttons, power handles, and doors with new recordings
  • New recordings for the mechatronic passenger door system
  • Separate exterior and interior aircon recordings

Known issues

  • Horn attenuation being silly now

Installation Instructions

Thank you so much for making this sound mod for class 385 and making it available to everyone

Absolutely, thank Raph too. We believe this mod is a tremendous improvement. When Rivet Games deliver's, it could either be helpful or entertaining. Naturally, there are still a few kinks with the mod even after all the work we put into it so we'll try to figure something out...

Do i have to delete this !TS2Prototype-385runsound file from my dlc in order to replace?

I don't think so no because we have a completely new script for completely new sounds. It should be fine.

Does the Class 385 Brake Mod work with this because i get a feeling it brakes it from working?

Avatar of ItsYa165

If you mean the Combined Power-Brake Controller mod by Laika, then no this will work irrespective of that.

I hope you enjoy it! I think we'll revist the mod for improvements after Rivet release their patches.

Great work, thats just so immersing with this sounds.

One little question. I have a section on east coast way, where i can test the flange sounds of different train types. On the 385 i cant hear anything. So am i right that rivet has dropped their quality to a level of not even including & setting up flange sounds for their vehicles?

Yep, that sadly is the case, and we can't really fix that without blueprint stuff. The last time we tried blueprint stuff, it broke the mod for several people, soooo...

I found the door sounds to be really loud in the driving cab with the recent update. Is this intentional or is this being looked at?

Avatar of Raph

I'll look into it, but I don't think that's anything we can fix, seeing as it probably has to do with the new audio mixing (which really isn't that much different from the original, they just fixed the door bug afaik)
