Twister Sound

Replacing of the audio boards
based on 6503/6530

Alternative board replacing all simple audio boards,
C-18389, MA-55 & MA-490.

Overview

TWISTER SOUND is a replacement audio board for GOTTLIEB SYSTEM-1, SYSTEM-80, 80A or 80B pinball machines. Modern technology, it replaces advantageously obsolete components (such as the 6530 untraceable) while offering unprecedented features:

  • Original sounds reproduced identically
  • Complete range of pinball machines, including the firsts SYSTEM 80B
  • Integrated VU-meter
  • Scalable board using low-power circuits
  • Simple and unified configuration
  • Attract-mode available on all pinballs

Installation

Thanks to its simple and unified connectivity, the board plugs directly into a replacement for the original one. Simply connect the ribbon to the connector for your system: SYSTEM-1 or SYSTEM-80/A/B

Note that only anecdotal use of the "555" mode requires an adapter.

The configuration of the board (choice of the pinball model and the attract-mode) is then, carried out simply by positioning the block of DIP switches.
