Custom Bally KISS Sound Board - More Info



Stock and Custom Sound Control: This board has varying levels of customization than can be turned on while playing the stock sounds. From just an attract sound every 3 minutes between games, to added background songs, to custom sounds and quotes taking over the some stock scoring sounds, tunes and solenoid fires. Game play can be an overall different experience.

STOCK SCORE SOUNDS: These are the sounds (chimes or short noises) that play when scoring in the stock setup. Their volume is controlled by the STOCK volume knob.

STOCK TUNES: These are the tunes (longer series of notes or noises) that play at the coin up, start of the game, tilt, KISS bonuses, and the end of the game. Their volume is controlled by the STOCK volume knob. If the EXTRA volume knob is turned up, these stock tunes will not play - they are replaced with extra custom sounds.

CUSTOM EXTRA SOUNDS: These are the custom sound effects and voices that play in place of the stock tunes and during solenoid activity. Their volume is controlled by the EXTRA volume knob. Turning this knob all the way down will cause these custom extra sounds to stop and cause the stock tunes to return.

CUSTOM BACKGROUND: These are long sound (song) files that are put into repeating play mode during game play (when a ball is in play). Their volume is controlled by the BACKGROUND volume knob. Turning this knob all the way down will cause the background to stop. DIP switch 1 controls whether there is one background for the whole game or different ones for each of the balls. Up to ten backgrounds can be defined, one for each ball.

CUSTOM ATTRACT SOUNDS: These are the sound files (sound effects or quotes) that play every 3 minutes between games when no balls are in play. The volume of the attract sound is controlled by the EXTRA volume knob, unless it is off. If the EXTRA volume knob is off, the attract sound volume is set by the STOCK knob. DIP switch 2 controls if the attract sounds will play. DIP switch 3 controls if one attract sound file will be played or one selected randomly from 15 files.

All the background songs and sounds are recorded in stereo. There is a low level headphone jack on the board which can be used to feed a stereo amplifier. All the sounds are customizable. I will include the optional song select button and cable assembly. shown at the bottom of this page. A large printed manual will be included with the board with explains in detail the custom sounds and which ones to change to obtain the level of customization you want.

Song Select Button, 8-foot Cable, and Decal. Button color is currently black, but might change in the future. The button requires a 9/32-inch or 7mm hole. It would be hard to put in cabinet wood. I recommend drilling a hole in the coin door and using the included Next Song decal. This location is easy to drill and wire. This button is not required for board operation.

Not Compatible with other Machines: This board will only work with the Bally KISS machine. It will not work with any other machine. It has been designed to detect the sound chimes, notes, and tunes which are unique to the KISS machine. If this board is placed in any other machine, few if any sounds will play. I will not offer the the source code for others to modifiy. I cannot support this board if the source code is modified by others. I intend to offer versions of this board in other Bally machines that use the -32 and -50 sound boards. Watch my website to get the latest information.
