The CGS03 Psycho LFO uses one in the feedback loop of a Schmitt
trigger for rate.

The CGS21 "Super Psycho Modulation Source" uses six in the same

Oakley Little LFO uses one to "pan" between two outputs of an
analogue switch for the shape control.

Some circuits also use 1 M log pots :

- The Oakley ADSR VCA uses three as variable resistors for attack,
  decay and release.

- The Oakley Little lag uses two as variable resistors for the up
  and down slopes.

- The Oakley Little EG uses two as variable resistors for attack
  and decay/release.
