Given their usage I'm incline to say linear, but I don't recall. :) with the rarity of a 150k pot, I'd use whatever you can find. I think I used 100k before and seemed okay.

True-- I've used both linear and audio taper in the external MPC host boxes I've built. Tough to find the 150k in any flavor these days. But the whole thing is reasonably forgiving, as each MPC module uses the pot in a different way. Some work better than others, and the stock 150K is a compromise anyway.

Thanks! :up:
Mostly just curious, as my experience with MPC Electras is that they're already stripped of that stuff. But the above replies actually help a lot, as I've been wondering about how a single pot value would be even at all useful for a diverse range of effects/circuits.

Thank you for the updated wiring! Could you direct me to finding the two way module switches?
