Did the car sounds get changed for consoles?

    I recently got the UE for my Xbox One-X and I've got to say, the simulation is quite impressive.

    However, I see that quite a lot of content from the PC version is missing, including some really great car sounds.

    I saw gameplay vids of the LaFerrari from cockpit view and it had a very aggressive motor sound with loud backfires and superb downshifting sounds.

    Unfortunately, the game I'm playing has the LaFerrari sounding somewhat like a vacuum cleaner with the motor sound becoming audible only around 6000 revs and it has none of the loud pops, cracks and backfires that I've heard in the PC version. Also, there's this really loud transmission whine sound as if it's got straight-cut gears, which it doesn't.

    Why did the car sounds change on consoles?

    I noticed the same problems with other cars as well - where car sound is generally weak, exhaust pops are not that loud and there is an obnoxious ear-piercing trans whine in cockpit for some reason, even though these cars do not have straight cut gears or adjustable gear ratios for that matter:

    * LaF
    * 599XX
    * Modern Lotus F1 car
    * One of the modern Ferrari F1 cars (sorry I can't recall the model)
    * Huracan Performante
    * Zonda R
    * Both the Countach variants
    * M235i Race Car

    And others. I understand that some cars do have a loud trans whine in cockpit such as the Zonda R or perhaps the Sesto Elemento, but the motor sound is also loud, aggressive and clearly audible, along with loud backfires and downshifting sounds.

    Did the car sounds get changed when the game was ported to consoles? Did the samples get mixed up? Why aren't all the car sounds 1:1 with the PC version? Both the PS4 Pro and Xbox One-X are powerful enough to handle the game.

    I also noticed that the tuning options have been dumbed down and the low LOD can be very noticeable at times.

    Why Kunos? I'm loving the game but can you PLEASE update these car sounds and bring them on par with the PC version?

    FYI, there's no reverb effect at all on consoles? I don't understand - is the hardware not powerful enough?

    Maybe the PC video you saw used a soundmod? Can you link it?

    I can't find it, sorry. It was a few months ago. Just watch any cockpit vids from PS4 or Xbox One - whether 2 years old or a few months old - some car sounds are dreadful. The engine comes through weak and trans whine is overpowering and way too loud. I'm not sure if PC was using a mod, but the PC gameplay vids I've seen so far have powerful motor sounds and none of this screeching, air-shattering trans whine in cockpit that drowns out the engine.

    Can someone please contact Luca and let him know that the sounds are not consistent on the Xbox One version? I recently saw a gameplay vid of PS4 posted 3 years back on YT with a superb Laferrari sound - loud exhaust backfire, audible engine and none of that annoying trans whine in cockpit.

    Gentlemen, please look into all Xbox One sounds - they are different from the PS4 and PC version - with many cars having quiet and really poor downshifting effects, weak and flat engine sound in cockpit, and a really loud screeching trans whine which starts from 2nd gear! It's ruining the experience.

    I've listed the cars in one of my posts within this thread.
