The 995 Attenuator panel consists of three "passive circuits", each made of a 25k potentiometer between input and output. The signal input to the top attenuator is chained to the bottom two in series. Introduction of a phone plug into middle or bottom input breaks the normalling system: 1 to 1-2-3, 1-2 to 2-3, 1-2-3 to 1-2-3.



Attenuators reduce the gain or amplitude of any applied input signal, control or audio. Moving clockwise from zero gain to unity with input, these attenuators can be used for reducing the effect of a control upon a voltage controlled module, providing up to three variable outputs from a single source input or reducing the gain of an entire signal complex.
