Some folks were talking about adding digital sounds to an early SS machine, so I gave it a try with my newest revision of Stars2020. If you're not familiar, this project updated the rules of Stars (1978) by adding an Arduino Nano to J5 of the Stern MPU100. The goals of that project were:
1) Deeper game play (3-levels of stars, wizard mode).
2) Modern features (ball save, tilt warnings, free play, etc.).
3) Cheap (I worked to keep the hardware costs under $20).
4) Leave the original hardware intact (newest revision allows for dual boot - old & new).
With those accomplished (documented here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/stars-2020-new-code-for-stern-stars-1978), I expanded the scope a little and spent $44 on a WAV Trigger board. The WAV trigger is plugged into a serial line on the Nano and it drives an old set of speakers I had lying around.
Here's a video I made of the result:
