Hi Paul,

Let me STRONGLY suggest that you put in a switch and a second output, so that
it can be used as either a single 6 input mixer OR as TWO independent THREE
INPUT MIXERS. The lack of mixing inputs on some of the MOTM modules
(understandable considering the cost of pots and knobs), causes one to highly
desire a few 2-3 input mixers for CV and signal inputs. Really the only time I
need a 6 input mixer is right before the amp, so I just use a small mixing
board for output (plus you gotta pan some of those 6 across the stereo field).

In terms of pots I would recommend linear because of CV, and because I
typically use a mixing board to change audio levels during recording.

More later!
