Uproar: making the presence switch a knob?

Any added benefit? I tend to prefer continuously variable controls when I have the option.

I'm assuming it'd just be a simple matter wiring in a pot as a variable resistor?

Not sure what value to go with though... idears?

No, unfortunately, because the switch uses a cap not a resistor. It could be done, but if would require modding the circuit to a certain degree, so it's not as simple as adding in a pot.

You could do it like a blend knob, to blend between two different caps. Perhaps looking at the recent topic on the input cap for the Rangemaster would be of benefit for you.
