Operation and Button Mappings
In the TCS WOWSound decoders we have reinvented the way we
think about model locomotive operation to reflect that of the prototype.
Currently, most model trains operate without a brake seperate from the
throttle speed. We call this kind of operation “Slot Car” because your
locomotive operates like a slot car (directly controlled by throttle). With
our new default “Prototype” operation users are expected to apply and
release brakes seperately from adjusting the throttle just like the real
thing, though the brakes will automatically release when the throttle is
increased.
All of the sounds in this decoder can be remapped to any function
except the toggle between light and sound mode, and the Audio AssistTM
mapping.

Sound and Light Mode Operation
To maximize the amount of control you have with the limited
number of function buttons we have created two distinct control modes:
Sound Mode and Light Mode. In Sound Mode the function buttons will
play the sound mapped to them without effecting any lights mapped to
the same function button. In Light Mode the function button will perform
any lighting operation that is mapped to it, but it won’t effect the sounds
being played.
For certain applications it may be desirable to play a sound at
the same time a lighting function changes (for instance illuminating
the headlight when the generator turns on). To setup your own dualmode functions visit the WOWSound section of the TCS website for more
information.

4 CV Sound Programming
Audio AssistTM Programming
NOTE: Visit the WOWSound section of the TCS website for instructional
videos, calculators, and a list of sound CV’s.
4 CV Write Operations
1. Determine the type of programming action you wish to perform and
enter the corresponding value from table 1 into CV 201.
Audio Assist® is an auditory feedback, main line configuration tool
that allows for quick and easy set-up of nearly all of the sound functionality.
To enter Audio AssistTM stop your locomotive on an operational track
and press function button 8 in rapid succession 4 times.
NOTE: Please view our instructional video about Audio AssistTM on our website
2. If you are looking to perform any operation besides a factory reset
enter the value of the specific field you are operating on into CV 202. IE
when remapping function button 12 enter a value of 12 into CV 202 (with
CV 201 = 1) to select that button.
