You want to listen to the
sound spectrum of your favorite loco, or the special sound of that loco
around the corner in the yard – on your model railroad? No problem with
One prerequisite: A PC with sound card and Windows
(Windows XP, 7, 8, 8.1, 10). Simply record the original sound of your
engine and edit it at home with your computer. Many customers did this
already successfully. Even if you don’t yet belong to this elite group
of LokSound Pro’s, the LokProgrammer is still a very useful tool for
you. It is the easiest way to program your ESU-decoder. You need no
programming experience, thanks to the graphic screen everything falls
into place with a few mouse clicks.
- Change the sound safed on the decoder.
of all digital parameters of the Loksound decoder such as address of
the loco, operation speed, maximum speed, braking
deceleration, brightness of bulbs etc; you can set all options with your
computer very easily - no cumbersome entering of CVs (configuration
variables) with your command station.
- Rearrange your sounds and transfer it to the LokSound decoder.
- You can use all sounds that can be downloaded to your computer hard disk.
- Sound can be allocated to different events.
- Additional sounds can be activated via function buttons.
With the LokProgrammer you can erase the sound data
of any LokSound decoder as many times as you wish, and replace it with a
different sound. To this end we offer on our homepage more than 200
different, fully matching sounds of various prototypes and locos for downloading on
your computer. Also you can edit just parts of a sound project: You
don’t like the decoder’swhistle? Just replace it with one of the many
others. Suitable sources beside those offered by us, are in Windows
*.wav format available. Sound – even voice or music is no problem for
our decoders. With the LokProgrammer’s aid you use the entire
flexibility and functionality offered by LokSound decoders.
By the same token, all other ESU decoders profit
from the LokProgrammer’s versatility; no matter if DCC, Multiprotocol -
or mfx decoder. With its help it’s possible to edit all parameters of
the particular decoder simply and conveniently. The available options
depend on the kind of decoder. Beside addresses and acceleration - and
deceleration settings, this concerns above all the allotment of function
keys (function mapping), the allocation of special effects to the
individual outputs, or the lamp brightness. The LokProgrammer can also
help when optimizing back EMF parameters or the loadable speed table.
All options can be programmed very conveniently: There is no tedious
punching-in of CV-numbers at the digital station anymore.
It’s this simple: The LokProgrammer is a small
programming box, which is wired between the PC and a programming track.
To connect it you need either a vacant serial interface, or you use the
included USBadapter cable (works with Windows up to Windwos 10). For
power we include a 500 mA wall power supply. If your needs are greater
(e.g. for gauge I engines), you can also use a conventional model
After hook-up you start up the especially
user-friendly LokProgrammer software, which is included on CDROM. This
runs on all modern Windows-systems (Windows XP, 7, 8, 8.1, 10). Just put
the loco with the ESU decoder on your programming track, and right away
you can read, edit or program it. The Programmer automatically
recognizes the decoder in the engine.
The LokProgrammer is recommended not only for the
use with our ESU decoders: By now, many well known model railroad
manufacturers factory-furnish their locos with ESU-decoders, which of
course can be modified again within the frame work of their technical
specifications – with the help of the LokProgrammer. You see, purchasing
a LokProgrammer pays off in any case.
LokProgrammer software is being reviewed
continuously. The latest, pertinent version can always be downloaded
from our homepage, or can be installed automatically, through an
internet-update function, on your computer.
