    I found this cool little kit at Wal-mart of all places and for only $10.00...

    I'm not sure exactly where I'm going to end up using it, but it seems like it is going to make a sweet mod for some pinballs...it makes the LEDs flash to the beat of the music or the sounds it's little mic pics up.

    Not advertising intentionally here, just seeing if anyone else has used one of these on their machine to see the result or get opinions on titles this would be good for.

    The one time I tried a sound-activated lighting mod it would just go off with every solenoid, which I found irritating and not the effect I was looking for.

    Quoted from alveolus:

    Agreed. Not good for pinball use in my opinion. Music, sound effects, callouts and coils all make the controller change. They are only really effective in Metallic and AC/DC if you are playing their jukebox when in attract mode. During gameplay, it is the equivalent of just turning an RGB controller on auto and cracking up the speed.

    Full disclosure....I sell those sound controllers on my website for use with my Speaker Light Kits, but my sales pitch on my website reads pretty much as I said above. I would never recommend that anyone use them, but if someone wants to try them...they are better off getting them from me for $10 over paying $40 - $70 from others that try to get that kind of price for them.
