Both. I mean tge overall sound signature.  

Anyway on a random note, would suppresaors work with sabot or flechette rounds? Or would it affect sabot separation and accuracy.

I know the AAI rifle had a semi suppressor because it was so loud

That depends heavily on both the sabot and suppressor design.

That said, yes you can absolutely make a suppressor that supports sabots quite well. You do that by making a pepperpot style liner for your suppressor.

As for the sound of the "crack" from the supersonic bullet passing by, Emeric has written a paper on it, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.  Hopefully someone else will post a link.
