[sdiy] ADc & DAC voltage dividers.. fixed or trimmer adjustables ??

For me it depends on how this is used.

If this is in a system like a sample and hold where the ADC value is 
output to the DAC without processing then I would just have the ADC 
trim. But I would also put in some way to tweak the input to match the 
output in firmware. Maybe some form of LUT (Look Up Table) or maybe vectors.

If the ADC input is processed in some way then I would go with trimming 

Couple of other things, don't know if this is a concept or final design. 
I worked in T&M (test and measurement) a lot and would put some form of 
over voltage protection on the ADC input. I just do that out of habit 
since I've seen a lot of things toasted with static and over voltage 
(not synths but T&M gear). Also I like keeping input impedance at 100K.
