The ToolBar

The FS Sound Studio toolbar appears as follows:


Here's a brief description of what the individual buttons do. The same functions are available through Main Menu picks.

·Open a Sound Config based on Aircraft  

This will open an sound configuration based on the Aircraft installed in your Flight Simulator. FS Sound Studio will search for aircraft.cfg files for valid aircraft. Use it to select the sounds associated with a particular Panel and Aircraft.

·Open an existing sound.cfg file  

For experienced designers only! Use this to open a specific sound.cfg file using the normal Windows File Explorer. Useful if you wish to edit a sound.cfg file anywhere on your system (not in the normal FS directory structure). NOTE: Using this option makes it impossible for FS Sound Studio to determine the correct Title and UI Variation and other values extracted from the aircraft.cfg file. Reasonable values will be provided, but they are not guaranteed to be accurate. We recommend you use the previous Open button if at all possible.

·Save the current sound.cfg file  

The current sounds will be saved to disk, and optionally, a backup file will be created.


Starts the FS Sound Studio Editor, which allows you to manipulate the sound.cfg file for the selected Aircraft.


Starts the FS Sound Studio Add a New Sound Config Wizard. The Wizard allows you to add a new sound configuration for a specific Aircraft/Panel combination. More details can be found in the Tutorial section. NOTE: CFS3 does not support multiple Panels or Sound configurations. This function will not be available in CFS3.

·View .cfg  

Displays the current sound.cfg file in Notepad. This allows you to see exactly what your final config file will look like. NOTE: Any change made in notepad will be discarded.


Displays the Help:About
window, showing the revision of FS Sound Studio and system information. The most up to date source of Help information can be found at the FS Sound Studio website
