So, I'm currently reteaching myself circuit stuff from a book, but I'd like to get a jump on something. I know that bridging the outside lugs of a pot with a samevalued resistor will halve its value, and will take (roughly) an audio taper pot down to close to a linear, and a linear pot close to an antilog pot.
I'm doing something fishy (to be detailed later) to my 5150 III Mini, and lets just say that the pots I need don't exist, unless I order 250 pots of each custom made to order, hoping to sell that many mod kits , at relatively non-cheap prices. Anybody here (Dan mayhaps? you draw pretty taper curves and shit) care to discuss a bit of how to tailor over-valued pots down in value and shape their tapers to fit what I need a bit more?
I've only tried it on guitar pots and wasn't impressed with what happened to the tapers. Can't really remember the specifics of the pots I tried. What exactly are you trying to do, and what value pot do you need?
