How do i turn off "gas leak" noise?

    There is an (VERY VERY) annoying sound/noise when i am near my ship.
    The sound itself is like there is a gas leak somewhere.

    I can hear it anywhere on my ship, even a short distance away from it. Only way to
    reduce it, not remove, is by entering the cockpit, or using "realistic" sound. The only
    way to seemingly remove it is by turning the ships power off. So, it appears to be generated
    by the ship itself, not a specific location.

    So far i tried to:
    - remove every mod
    - Turning every active block on and off.
    - Save and reload.
    - change graphic settings
    - toggle between realistic/arcade sound.
    - Turning thrusters on and off.

    With no greater luck.
    Any suggestion, apart from playing another game?

    The culprit was the air vent. Have to remove it, not just turn it off.

    Do not know what to say. I can now reproduce the noise by making a simple large grid
    ship with a cockpit (sofa or another seat works too) , 1 large reactor and 10 large ion thrusters.
    Can toggle the noise on and off by adding or removing the 10th thruster.

    Verify the game files from steam game properties - this is not normal

    That was the first i did , and the files seems fine. Thanks anyway.

    More testing seems to suggest that as soon as the weight of my test "ship" exceeds 500 000 Kg the noise starts.
    Not sure why it is there. Cockpit noise? Idle thrusters? General ship noise?
    A short video of what i describe.

    Mostly useful to at least explain what the sound is like. It may even be intended, like dirty glass or poor camera quality is.
    Whatever, that does not stop it from beeing annoying. I looked for some "S.T.F.U." mods, but couldn't find any that seems to
    fit this case.

    Finally, after almost a year someone made a mod to solve it. It don't remove all noise, just the most annoying ones. Staying next to a large grid ship with jetpack off is now silence unless i am too close to a refinery or assembler, which is kinda ok with me. (Link in first sentence). Now, i just have to find a cockpit noise silencer, and flying a spaceship will at least be a much more pleasant experience to my ears.

    Glad I am half deaf then, I have never heard this noise. :)
