Better Volume Control: how to create a log pot that is better than the "real" thing
Designing With the LMC835 Digital Controlled Graphic Equalizer: National Semiconductor Application Notes,04-Nov-1995
Digital volume control has log taper:04/11/2002 EDN - Design Ideas / Digital potentiometers provide a compact and convenient way to attenuate audio-amplifier signals. However, most such potentiometers suffer from at least one flaw: a nonlogarithmic step increment. To avoid this problem, a user must usually step.
Digital Volume Control: based on DS1669 Digital Pot IC
Inverted bipolar transistor doubles as a signal clamp:06/07/01 EDN-Design Ideas / A number of circuits, such as level detectors and AM demodulators, benefit from a rectifier with a low offset voltage. Silicon diodes have an offset of approximately 0.6V and do not work well in low-level circuitry. A Schottky diode is a bit better...

Pocket Equalizer for Headphone:
Subwoofer Equalizer: The Linkwitz transform circuit is a hugely flexible way to equalize the bottom end of a sealed loudspeaker enclosure. A speaker that is corrected using this method is flat from below resonance to the upper limit of the selected driver. The low frequency roll off point is determined by the parameters of the transform circuit. Should the enclosure size be too small and cause a lump in the response before roll off, this is also corrected. A conventional active crossover network is then used to divide the subwoofer signal from the main channel signals. Note that there is also a separate spreadsheet calculator available for calculating component values for different situations not handled by the original circuit.

Use Rotary Potentiometer To Drive Solid State Volume Control:01/20/03 Electronic Design - Ideas for Design / This design idea details how a standard volume control can be replaced by its solid-state equivalent. Digital potentiometers are often advertised as replacements for rotary volume controls. To simulate these controls, many circuits employ up/down...
