Dial-a-SID

I rebuilt an old bakelite phone into a jukebox for SID tunes. Here's a video about it!

Hi

Lets say I would like to reproduce this without modifying my phone. Would it be possible to make an external box with the extra two buttons to implement the same functionality?

The rotary dial has the digit 0 on the shortest travel path, the fastest digit to dial, faster than even the digit 1. On a real telephone, 0 is on the other end of the dial, the one that's slowest to dial, beyond the digit 9. This ruins part of the illusion of an old telephone for me.

This varied by country. Anti-clockwise, variations included 1234567890, 0123456789, and even 9876543210.

Hi Linus, I don't think the microphone is being used? Speech recognition sounds a bit boring. One could whistle commands down it as a nod to phreaking. Or how about whistling a melody to select a matching chiptune. :-)

I thought the video could have described the Pi's connections to the phone a bit more.
