So, later this year I'll be starting work on assembling a new project I'm designating the "Multi-Bally." It's an advanced wide-body cabinet that will accept any of the early Bally s/s games. (And probably some of the Sterns as well.) With the Alltek all-in-one MPU it will be easy to switch the software appropriately. What I need is a sound board that works the same, with all the sound roms on a single chip where I could simply switch the micro-switches to get the right game sounds out of the game to match whatever play field happens to be in it. This seems like a good platform. Do you think that's possible?

Basically I am looking at the entire line of games that used the -17 and -35 MPUs. (A number of the earliest games used chimes.) Everything in them is the same, with the same plugs. (MPU, SDB, light card, etc.) From my limited research I see the same as you, that the plug-ins for the early sound cards are the same. The cards just got more sophisticated.
