I know nothing about the ACM-1, but it reminds me that I just recently

All the chatter around is about how it is passive, so it has “infinite” headroom, 0% distortion, 0% gain. I got one recently for a low price. I looked inside, eager to know the trick…. Vactrols? Motorized pots? something I don’t even know about? Inside the is a big chip 28pins or something with the label scratched off. Does anyone know what is actually going on in this thing? Is that an 8 channel digitally controlled pot? Just curious.
