[sdiy] Something better than CD4066 to switch CVs?

Does anyone have any experience using chips to switch multiple CV's? I 
have a recommendation to use CD4066, but was wondering if maybe there's 
something more modern and appropriate.

My power supply is +/-15 and I intend to switch signals from -5 to about 
+11 and including ones intended to be accurate 1v/oct pitch CV's.

I was also thinking about using one of these IC's to switch in an 
additional timing capacitor in a VCO circuit (to send it into LFO land), 
but I'm wondering if I'd be compromising VCO stability in any way by 
tying it to the switch IC.
