Hi,

Just new here and thinking of building the Soundlab and the "Music from outer space Sequencer".

However, the component lists don't say what curve type the pots should be.

Can anyone please tell me??

many thanx

Frank

linear in general (when not specified otherwise),
log for audio path (attenuvation). actually log type pots are often called audio pots.
i sometimes use log for cv when i want fine control in lower range...
just my personal view.

so use linear for the SL and the sequencer.

cheers,
matthias

I would agree. You could use audio/log for the mixer section and main volume, like fonik says. I think thats what I did.

I accidentally built me first lab with all LOG pots. I love it!!! My new double lab is going to be Lin on the left and all Log on the right (except for the mix). Great fine tuning on the low end as Fonik pointed out, using three hands to twist both osc's and the cut off you can produces some really nice tortured vocal type sounds
