DCCSound is an authorised ESU stockist and we offer authentic sound projects, made in Australia, to suit ESU LokSound decoders. 3 easy options are available:
1) Pre-programmed ESU LokSound V5 decoders available through the Products link above, or
2) U-program your own ESU LokSound V5 or V4 decoder - simply email us the decoder's serial number using a LokProgrammer and we will email the sound project to you, or
3) Send in your decoder and for a nominal fee, we load the sound project including the latest ESU firmware
Visit the Sound projects page to see our ever expanding library of projects (over 65 unique Australian projects).
We also offer decoder installation services, should you wish for us to complete the work. Examples are listed at the Installations link above. Please contact us for a quote.

DCCSound's steam sound projects also include the same great features as our Full Throttle equipped diesel ones do, including:
Heavy Load: Simulate a grade or heavy train - at any road speed - simply by pressing F5. Disengage F5 and the chuff returns to normal.
Coast: Hit the coast key (F6), and the stack chuff drops to just rod clank or a whisper. Disengage F6 and apply throttle when a grade approaches!
Active brake: Slow down your loco with the brake, not the throttle! Release the brake and the loco accelerates back to the set speed.
Scrolling headlight: This feature enables manual control of front and rear headlights without it being automatically directional, whilst only consuming one function key, F0.
