The default airplanes in the Standard and Premium Editions of MSFS are often pretty good, but there’s always room for improvement in a few key areas, such as flight modeling and sounds. We’ve seen some developers tackling these airplanes with the goal of enhancing them beyond the standard experience, and today we’re bringing you the work of Boris Vanian, who recently released a custom sound set for the Cirrus SR22!
Boris is known for creating a similar sound set for the Cirrus in X-Plane, but he has also dipped his hands in MSFS development with the sounds of a couple of notorious projects: the FlyByWire A32NX and the very new FlightFX Vision Jet! Now he’s launching his very own product with an excellent new sound package for the SR22 that he recorded over a 9-month period.
The result of all this work is a significant upgrade over the stock sounds in the SR22. Boris put together a video showcasing this work, which should give you a good idea of how much better the aircraft sounds with this pack:
The story of how this pack was made is actually quite interesting! Boris began flying the Cirrus SR20 for his PPL, so he eventually decided to get a microphone and record the flights. After 9 months, to celebrate the successful training, he released the X-Plane version of the sound pack on exactly the same day he got his license! Seeing how well received it was among the community, Boris then decided to bring this work to Microsoft Flight Simulator!
The Cirrus SR22 Sound Pack from Boris Audio Works is now available through Simmarket and the Threshold Store, priced at €15 + tax. If you fly the SR22 in MSFS and value the audio experience in an aircraft, this should be a no-brainer! Just remember that the SR22 is only available in the Premium Deluxe Edition of MSFS.
