Can anyone point me to a tutorial which will explain how to add ambient/background sounds?

By this I mean outside sounds such as gulls piping or waves lapping against the pontoons of a stationary float plane.
 
Thanks

You won't be able to add this via the sound.cfg file, unless you take an existing defined sound like wind noise and add in your own effects. Best to include a custom gauge on your panel which plays sound files in the background. Check the SDK for details.

Installing gauges can be done via notepad or if you want something a little more elegant, Flight Sim Panel Studio...
 
 
... Great app if you like to tinker.

Thanks luap,
I've done as you suggested and installed FS Panel Studio.
Unfortunately,I can find nothing in the manual about adding sounds to gauges.
Now how do I do that?

FS Panel Studio can help you add a gauge to a panel, but it cannot add sounds to a gauge.

My suggestion was to find a gauge which already has the sound you wanted, and add that gauge.

Hmmm.
Well,some other programs seem to have that.

For instance,Aerosoft's San Francisco scenery has gulls piping and car traffic whooshing by when in the outside view.Wings of Silver Piper Cub has the sound of waves lapping against the floats when in the cockpit view.

Does anyone know how that's done?
Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Crack open the SDK and start looking around.  I figured out some lighting things from the SDK.  It's not hard and you learn things (more knowledge means more enjoyment from FSX because you can fix or improve upon things).
 
C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK/SDK/SimObject Creation Kit/SimObject Container SDK/Aircraft Configuration Files.htm
 
With that file from the SDK and the sound configs of the particular aircraft you have indicated have sounds you are interested in, you should be able to piece together the structure and duplicate/modify to suit your needs.
