 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I want to implement one of those fancy volume knobs, that has no beginning or end (so not a potentiometer), you know the type you can just rotate on and on, but I don't know what they are called. Does anyone know their name and/or where to get them?

Thx!

Well you still call it a knob, but you attach it to a rotary encoder smiley

In some circumstances you'd call it 'broken' !!
