How can I create a manually controlled rgb led controller? Answered

I have a 4 lead common cathode led.  Would it be as simple as building an led driver circuit and placing a potentiometer between supply and each anode?

No, if the LED takes substantial current you need a circuit like this one, per channel

Yes, it should be that simple.
