Intact Audio New Autoformer Volume Controls Landed

I've used a few versions of the autoformer volume controls from Intact Audio so I was excited when a new version sorry versions were announced last month. I have a couple projects in the works but these are going into my Brook clones. The build quality on these are great.

The basic building block of the family is a compact 23 step autoformer that measures 2.4" X 1.6" and is 1.8" deep. They can have any taper desired and the stadard version comes with the following dB steps. (0, -3, -6, -9, -12, -14, -16, -18, -20, -22, -24, -26, -28, -30, -32, -34, -36, -39, -42, -45, -48, -52 and Mute)

Thank you Intact Audio!

Messer Chups

One of my fave surf type bands. I guess they are surf goth? It doesn't hurt that Zombierella on bass looks like Betie Page.
