I have a design with 64 analog switches:

if I replace the ON/OFF switches with digipots I'll have an 8 into 8
mixer with individual gain. TI PGA4311 is nice (and chainable), but I'd
need 16 at $15 a piece...

and yes, it's in my modular rack :)

and yes, maybe it makes more send to just use 8 ADCs and 8 DACs and do
it all in digital....
