Sounds like something I'd try, but I fry a lot of gear.
But you really want to know what the voltage levels are, perhaps take a
peek with a scope. It might work, or you might have to design a little
one transistor buffer amp, maybe an emitter follower, to match things up.
Or perhaps an OpAmp would work, something like a 741.
