hard to go wrong with the Clash...but I don't listen to music while I play. I need to be able to hear myself yelling "Oh you miserable f@^#*$! That was my target you motherpussbucket!" clearly

I listen to loads of stuff. I just load a bunch of albums (usually around 8-10 hours worth) into winamp and let it play.

Rock, folk, classical, whatever really.

Never. I find it anti-immersion.
Besides, as a musician, I usually have had my share of music when I fly, so I don't need any.

I will sometimes play the Kimigayo (Japanese national anthem) in the background while flying Japanese aircraft. It is a beautiful counterpoint to the violence...

Yup, always listen to music. Gets me relaxed more, and I can't set up Teamspeak for my life http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

To me, someone who needs music playing throughout the day to "make things better", is no different than someone who needs booze or crack throughout the day to enjoy it.

Sane people can live with whatever the Tao is at the moment.

To me, someone who likes some music playing in the background, as a (one amongst many available) pleasant source of both sensory and mental enjoyment that can go along with other activities, has a perfectly sane approach to music.

Having said that, I feel that the sounds of engines and guns produced by IL2 fit so well with the purpose of using it that I don't have any background music playing when sim-flying, generally. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hey man, I sometimes listen some good old 40's swing bigbands when flying pacific aircraft...
like it used to be (not that they used to listen to any music at all but...). It makes you fly more unpredictable and that's a good thing.

As you can see by my little picture, I listen to Led Zeppelin. Also CCR, Beatles, Ramones, Clash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, anything rockish.
Anybody know the most kind on framerates way to play music?

I listen to a very ecclectic mix when I build missions, but I usually don't listen to music when playing.

The collection is very bizarre. Here is a sample:
I Ran - A Flock of Seagulls
Poison - Alice Cooper
Sloop John B - Beach Boys
Rebel Yell - Billy Idol
Oops, I Did it Again - Britney Spears
Come on Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners
White Flag - Dido
May It Be - Enya
Dust in the Wind - Kansas
Danger Zone (From "Top Gun") - Kenny Loggins
Love Profusion - Madonna
Your Wildest Dreams - Moody Blues
One Night in Bangkok - Murray Head
Out of the Ruins - Pat Benatar
Big City Nights - Scorpions
The Ballad of the Green Berets - SSgt Barry Sadler
The Foggy Dew - The Chieftains and Sinead O'Connor
Your Wildest Dreams - The Moody Blues
She's a Lady - Tom Jones
Mickey - Toni Basil
We're Not Gonna to Take It - Twisted Sister

If I ever want background music while preserving the maximum PC performance, I use an integrated CD+tape+radio HiFi sitting on my desktop by the PC. It won't touch your framerates! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

When I do listen, I prefer Glenn Miller, WWII era music, mixed with appropriate instrumental movie soundtracks, ie Memphis Bell, Das Boot.

I find that Glenn Miller in particular makes it more immersive because that music is SO ingrained in that era that it enhances the experience.

I also include various WWII era broadcasts into the playlist as well. You want immersive and spine tingling? Get into a Spit or Hurricane and fly a mission with Churchhill giving a speech in the background! Man-on-man, can't beat that!

Glen Miller.....hmmm I wouldn't mind some of that too while flying.

I am an old CFS2 guy. I played that for a long time. There was an add on to a little program you could get that added a cd player to the cockpit. Now, I know it wasn't very realistic, but it sure was nice to have. i copied all my CD's into it and could listen to anything in my collection while flying. Was pretty cool.

"Man-on-man, can't beat that"?? Hmmm. Besides 40s era music, the soundtrack to "The Thin Red Line" is great for Pacific Fighters. For flying in the ETO, someone took the music files from WWII Fighters (remember that one?) and you can download it in correct format for use in IL2/PF - but I forgot from where.

Rammstein and Motorhead sometimes, when I need to get warmed up for action.

"The Flying Dutchmen" and similar dramatic classical tunes always gets my heart racing, but I keep the volume down so as to not distract me from the game itself.
