Default DIY mixer first project

I want to build a basic stereo mixer for my pc, so I found this indestructible that has resistors in between each source and that got me wondering if I could use a dual pot instead and have control over the input volume. Maybe I can use this for a multi mic setup. What pot should I use and will my idea work?

You can have dual pots as it is stereo.
Look up dual pot at any electronics supplier.

you should put the pots across the input of the mix matrix.

a 10k pot should be good enough for your applications.
