Digitally controlled preamps


An increasing number of interfaces seem to be utilizing digitally controlled preamps which have no volume knob (pot) but are controlled entirely by means of software. Companies typically say little or nothing about how this is accomplished and how it affects sound quality.
Anyone here have any idea of how this gets done? Pros and cons?
