Sound assignments

With any pinball machine, quite a few sounds(or voice callouts, or combinations of both) can be applied to various events. Here's just a list. Note that you are not limited to just one sound per event. To add variety to your pin, you could have even just different takes on the same callouts & randomly play one on invocation. For example, on a Sesame Street-themed pinball, you could have a callout of Bert saying "Get the extra ball!" as well as Ernie saying the same thing.
