    Hello all,

    (Sorry in advance if I'm posting in the wrong place)

    I am looking to build a MIDI controller using an old NES case and an Arduino MC. I am using 16 arcade button switches and two rotary potentiometers. I have modified the casing and mounted all the necessary parts, but I am a COMPLETE noob when it comes to the wiring. Help me? Also, I had an interesting idea of maybe wiring the controller ports to the analog inputs of the arduino chip in order to use the NES external hardware. Would this be possible? I have found a pinout but I'm not yet versed with this sort of thing so I don't know what to make of it.

    Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Regards,
    Rupal
