Hacking a Pot

Hi All, it's time again for Calculon's noob question of the day!!!

For today's question, I'm hacking a sound recorder that has a "tweak" feautre on it. This tweak is a potentiometer that determines the pitch of the playback. What I would like to do is replace the physical turn-the-knob with PIC outputs, so my robot can do the tweeking itself. Is that possible?

hi :) 

it should be possible if the pic has an analog output, or if you use a digital to analog chip.

also you should determine what kind of potentiometer it is .. if it has any label or writing, try to google it.
