I build simple electronic noise machines in my free time. I seem to work with the 555 and the 40106 chips a lot... drone machines and punk consoles, metronome circuits, lfo's, etc. I occasionally build a kit and circuit bend stuff also... Basic DIY electronic stuff.
I have an extra NES controller that I would like to incorporate into this work. I'm thinking the controller would look pretty normal, but it could be hooked up to some sort of noise machine, and pressing the buttons would somehow alter the sounds being generated.
The problem is I can't figure out how I could execute this.
I did find the following from the Ninstrument website... which seems helpful, but I don't have a modular synth or anything like that, and I'm not interested in using the program that this schematic is intended for.
I also have an Atari Joystick that I would like to incorporate into a different, yet similar project.
Can anyone help? Any ideas?
