Sorry but you have some ears problem.
First video - higher frequency sound from more rotational speed.
Second video - a little low frequency sound.

Re: 1.4 110kw tjet engine sound, is that normal?

No it's not normal.

I had the same noise on my gp for some time. I replaced timing belt, tensioner, pump, aux belt and the noise gone. (3 years now still ok)

I don't really know what was the issue, everything was in pretty good shape but I THINK the noise was coming from the aux belt area.

Remove aux belt and check if the noise is still there, could be something from that area. It's the easiest/fastest test anyway.


edit:

found an old video of the noise

Sounds normal to me. Tjet sounds like a diesel when you are so close.

The other noise is the same as mine.

The engine sound is pretty standard, that alternator belt sound isn't.
