Have you ever wanted to expand past onboard sound? Sure a decoder inside a loco adds realism to your loco, but what about the rest of the layout? Birds singing, dogs barking, a sawmill running, men working in the shed, how about a logging operation? These are just some of the possibilities with adding sound to your model railroad with Layout Sound. You can add an amusement park, zoo, a city, all kinds of fun and interesting variety to your layout, and it can be done with Sound. The Dream Player can help you accomplish all this, and much more! Our customers have also installed the Dream Player as an audio playback device for museum display sounds, zoo exhibits, theme park announcements, information kiosks, and Christmas lights.

The Dream Player can be loaded with any WAV format audio file, create your own sound, or use one of our FREE sound files available on our web site! Sound is the perfectly elegant and simple way to add realism to your Layout. Not just 'silly' sound effects, these are full fledged High-Quality Stereo Sound Tracks! They are available in a wide variety of scenes to fit your layout and time period, and are ready to run in your Dream Player! Now you can have the Lush CD Stereo Sound that your layout deserves, and a Solid-State device to play it. Your layout should be just as fascinating to listen to as it is to look at. If you are looking for a ready-to-run solution, professional quality Scale Magic™ Sound from Fantasonics Engineering is also available for your Dream Player.

Interested in automation or animation? The Dream Player includes four separate trigger inputs to individually select the sound track that will play at any point in time. Each of the trigger inputs is opto-isolated and can be connected to buttons, switches, sensors, block-occupancy detectors, or even a DCC Decoder. A visitor can push a button to start a scene, or simply walk-up, and a motion sensor can trigger any suitable sound track. A random mode allows the Dream Player to select the track to play, making the scene sounds have more variety. One Dream Player can also trigger another, making the possibilities endless!

The Dream Player uses readily available SD Flash cards (the same as most digital cameras). You can load your own sounds from a computer (wave files) onto the SD Card, which will store the files forever, then insert the card into a Dream Player and you have your own custom sound track. No need to have the manufacturer load the sounds, or send it off to someone with a expensive fancy programmer, load the sounds yourself! If you have a card reader for a digital camera, you are already equipped to load the Dream Player. SD Cards are available in sizes from 64 Megabytes up to 1 Gigabyte, which allows up to 100 minutes of Stereo CD Files to be loaded onto your Dream Player. You can place four different files on the SD Card to allow more variety in your sounds and let the Trigger Inputs select the tracks.

But wait that's not all! We also include four Control Outputs to allow the control of any accessory you wish. Let the Dream Player control lights, motors, crossing gates, carnival rides, cranes, you name it. Each audio track on the SD Card has its own Control Output. That means you could have a 'Day' track with one set of lighting, and a 'Night' track with another set of lighting. The possibilities are endless, let you imagination go wild. The Dream Player was designed to be flexible so that you can be creative.

This solution is perfect for Portable Modules, Portable Layouts, Replacing a CD Player, Adding Triggerable Sound to your Layout, Controlling Automated Characters, Controlling Lights, or anything you can imagine with Layout Sound! No compromise in quality, this little guy packs a punch! 44.1KHz at 16-bit Stereo (same as a CD), no quality compromising MP3's here, no noisy or bad sound, this thing sounds as good as a real CD player! But with no moving parts! Externally controllable, and will 'loop' any sound forever without missing a beat, and never wear out!

Take the ultimate high-quality Dream Player, add your own sounds, or ours, and now you have a railroad sound player that can make a huge difference on your pike. You don't have to be stuck with just the visual images, you can have Stunning Sonic Images as well.
