Semi-Microphone support via Powerpak?

Semi-Microphone support via Powerpak?

Hi, I was just wondering if it would be difficult or not to use the select button on NES controller 2 to act as a Famicom microphone. I think that the Famicom microphone only registered sound in general and not different volumes, but I could be wrong. What I mean is if you wanted to use the "microphone", you would just press select on controller 2 and it would register an input for the microphone. That way people could get past Pol's Voice in Zelda and haggle in Kid Icarus for the FDS versions.

The Famicom mic is actually on controller port 1's register, and I seem to remember it's on D1 or D2, bits that are connected only to the expansion port, not the controller port. Of course, you could ROM-hack the game to get it to read player 2 select.
