Each 100k resistor will generate 6uV of thermal noise. Not much of an
issue in CV circuits, but possibly quite noisy in the audio path once
you sum up all those 100k resistors. As in many things in life: "it
It seems particularly odd to use a high-quality VCA and low-noise
op-amps, and then spoil all that "quality" that you've paid for with
poor passive component choice.
