Custom Pot Substitutions for Patreon Projects
« on: September 02, 2017, 03:20:03 PM »
Hey Everyone,

Before Madbean started supporting the Patreon projects on this forum, I emailed Peter asking what pots I could sub for the custom / hard to find "W" taper pots.  Figured I'll share it here to prevent questions from heading his way.

He said that as a general rule of thumb replacing a "W" taper with a "B" taper that is 10 times smaller value has the closest feel to the sweep. It obviously isn't the same, but it is close. For example, try using B100K in place of W1M and B20K (or B25K) in place of W200K.
