Inside the Paddle control there is a button and a potentiometer. Both can be easily connected to Arduino. I’ve removed the original cable and with the help of a broken USB cable I’ve connected 5V, A0, D2 and Ground to an Arduino Nano Clone.
Then I’ve installed Mozzi library and converted original Atari game sounds to.h files.
Finally I’ve connected a 7 segment 4 digit display to the Arduino Nano and programmed a simple animation to display current beat position.
