Beier sound card into Taigen Tiger 1 does go !

Feel free to discuss anything and everything to do with tanking here!

Postby Tiggr » Wed Jan 18, 2017 11:31 pm

I got one of these for my Taigen Tiger 1 last week and fitted it tonight :

http://www.beier-electronic.de/modellba ... m-hl-2.php

It takes a little patience to go step by step through the instructions, but the results are most impressive.
The sound of the Maybach engine is as if it the real tank is right there in the same room.

I'll do a video at the weekend outside.

The other great thing about the Beier card is that you can download from a choice of 4 Tiger 1 sound sets and add your own sounds too.
The list of sounds you can download onto the micro SD card covers most WWII and modern tanks. (Check the link above).

I also like the fact that you use the same radio and piggyback off the Taigen board which remains in the tank.
Gratuitous photo...... :D

The link does not work. I think the row of dots has something to do with it.

Hello Tiggr I'm very interested and will check it out once you post it! How long did the step by step instructions take you to set her up?

Link now corrected

Hi Carl. It probably took a couple of hours all told - if you decide to buy one, make sure you buy the sound card with the DVD ROM.
Have a look at the link - you can sample the sounds on the site - but there's no comparison to when you hook it up to a good speaker ! :thumbup:

Paul I did find the site and the sound files. Very nice. How was the soldering bit with the board?

Also how did you setup the wiring was it tedious or straight forward?

I watched a video on YouTube to check the wiring - it was quite straight forward.
As for the soldering, I found that the little connection board fitted very snugly on the Taigen board and worked without soldering.

Wow that's great! I'm tempted to dive into one once I hear yours! I'm assuming the board comes with an sd card that you load sound files onto?

It does, and an adpator so it fits a standard SD card slot. :thumbup:
I'll take a couple of shots of how it fits inside the tank - time to get some zzzz s now

Very very nice! Great sound upgrade and that street setting at night is very realistic!

Congratulations on modding one of these to 2.4 ghz. I have one of these in an old HL Tiger - the sound is top notch, and I love the way it can change gears, rather than most approaches which is just to modulate the sound by speed. I also appreciate the fact that it eliminated the Track Recoil. I haven't checked for a while, but am assuming that the Client project files are still on the Beier site. If so, there is a very good Maybach set up there.

If you do away with the Taigen/Heng Long board you can have a lot more options and control with an RCtanks Australia ASP2 board.
The ASP has better sound options using 2 sd cards and outputs for different strength speakers. !!!
It has more control and features than almost any other board on the market. :wtf:
Well worth a look at. :thumbup:

I've been really interested in the ASP for a while now and every time I logon to view it it's sold out on their website. Any idea when they will have them back in stock? Just asking if you know something. Thanks

Or maybe someone else on the forum has an idea thanks in advance

Hi Carl,
He gets a number of them made and then makes them available for sale on his website. I believe that he is getting another batch produced soon. They sell quite quickly !! Anyone who has tried them will swear by them, and so you get a lot of repeat customers.
I have 3, and they are excellent !
It is something for American and English tankers to consider even if it is not local.
Also if you are into IR , the Piranha battle unit is a very good option. ( I highly recommend it )

Anyway, not to detract from this excellent site, but if you are interested the designer has an ASP web forum where you can ask details.

Just loving the different sound units I have already

I've been using the USM-HL for 5 years, you can find the samples on some treads in this forum, and also i 've my profiles shared on the Beier forum. The Beier and the Benedini are the only pure sound cards i know right now, and i my opinion nothing beat them. The main issue i've with all the myriad of new control boards that use SD cards are the micro lapse times of switching the sounds. I could be a bit oversensitive on this issue, though ;D

best regards

Hi Jussek I'm assuming the sound card you are using is the usm-hl and the one that Tigrr is now using is the new version? The model you have is very nice but no longer available?

I am very impressed with the Beier sounds and am strongly considering one
