Analog Sound Box w/ EMD 1st Generation Diesel Sound Container

The Analog Sound Box has been developed as a joint effort between engineers at Kato and Soundtraxx to craft a simple, versatile, and powerful sound system for use on non-DCC layouts.  Completely self-contained, the ASB has a built in speaker and will allow modelers to enjoy an “In-Cab” experience while operating their favorite trains!  Using separate plug-in sound “containers”, cartridges each with their own individual sound and programming sets (even including things like momentum!), the ASB is a “smart” device, not just making sounds but reacting appropriately to the actions of your locomotives by reading back-EMF from the motors. Steam locomotive chuffs will speed up and slow down according to the speed of the locomotive itself; not just the position of the throttle, making the sound a properly interactive experience!  The new Analog Sound Box will ship with an included EMD 1st Generation Diesel sound container, appropriate for E and F-units or other older diesel locomotives!

Additional Sound Container availability to be announced soon.



• Six function buttons give you control over specially picked prototype-recorded sounds, from horns to bells to dynamic brakes and coupler clanks.
• ASB will plug onto the side of a Kato Power pack or can be powered externally, making it compatible with non-Kato Powered layouts.
• Sound plays from the built-in speaker or can be routed through a stereo-out jack to external speakers or headphones.
• The ASB is designed with future expansion in mind – Bluetooth and microphone capability are both built into the box (more details to come)
• The ASB is a pass-through for your power pack and as such can power multiple locomotives; however it will only mount one sound container at a time.

For non Kato DC power packs use the following Kato wire adapters:

24-842 DC Converter Unitrack (HO/N Scale)
24-843 Terminal Adapter Cord, 35" Unitrack (HO/N Scale)
