My Vestax MDM401 mixer uses the same principle. What I did was removing the balance pot and shunting it for a quick fix .. Now have to find something similar.
I believe it behaves as there were one pot for each channel. That means when You attenuate one channel, the other doesn't increase level. The channels are indeed separated. On my Vintage Pioneer SA606 it is single ganged. I would try both and see how they behave.

That's it yes, I just shorted IN/OUT on the connector for now to do further testing on the rest of the amp but I will need to replace it. Using a single gang pot means that the signal doesn't actually get through the pot, isn't that in it self a reason to use this method ?

I finally decided to go with a 250k MN stereo guitar Balance/blend potentiometer. The shaft was knurled so I had to file it flat to work with the knobs, other than that it works like a charm.
