to listen to the sound spectrum of your favourite
loco, or the special sound of that loco around the
corner in the yard Ė on your model railroad? No
problem with the ESUís LokProgrammer!
prerequisite: A PC with sound card and Windows.
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 donít yet
belong to this elite group of LokSound Proís, 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.
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
your computer. Also you can edit just parts of a sound
project: You donít like the decoderíswhistle? Just replace
it with one of the many others. Suitable sources beside
those offered by us, are in Windows *.wav format available.
Sound Ė even voice or music is no problem for our decoders.
With the LokProgrammerís aid you use the entire flexibility
and functionality offered by LokSound decoders.
By the same
token, all other ESU decoders profit from the
LokProgrammerís versatility; no matter if DCC, Multiprotocol
- or mfx decoder. With its help itís 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.
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 USB adapter cable (works with Windows 2000 or
Windows XP). 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 railroad
you start up the especially user-friendly LokProgrammer
software, which is included on CDROM. This runs on all
modern Windows-systems from Windows 98. 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.
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 Ė with the help of the
LokProgrammer. You see, purchasing a LokProgrammer pays off
in any case.
LokProgrammer can also be instrumental in updating decoders.
Almost all ESU decoders are updatable, in case you desire a
new software version. To do this, you only need the
LokProgrammer and a small update-program, which you can
download from the ESU homepage.
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.
