We are going to develop a train simulator for the education of machinist candidates. The simulator will be realistic like the real train, with all of its features. Hence, we need the sounds to be heard by the machinist like driving the real train. We are planning to collect the real train sounds on the train and use FMOD library to provide the sounds.
But we don't know in which format to collect the sounds. When choosing the sound format to use in our project, we should take into some considerations (such as quality, size, loading time, etc.).
Which format is suitable for this purpose (.wav, .mp3, etc.)? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the sound formats?
I will be appreciated if you help me…
