they are not that critical. use 15k
metal film is not important. 1% is recommended and usually is metal film.

neither I :-) where did you hear it?
there are 0Ohm resistors, a form of jumpers, for automatic cirquit
mounting, but you dont need those :-)

being that usually a 10k pot works better. If you are very unlucky,
it does not go to 127 though.

no, sorry... the OverdubMute parameter works for both simultaneously.
through MIDI it would be possible

consider a slider (fader)!

well, better (smaller) than 1% tollerance is always good!

the most simple is enough!
