As soon as you have programmability, all the controls *do* become 10K linear because they're just a panel being scanned and having their values sent to DACs. If you need a specific reverse-log curve for a specific control, it's a look-up table away.

That *is* pretty crazy, but I suppose it just goes to show that a single resistor is even cheaper than a lookup table or a few lines of code - or at least, it was back then when both memory and processor time were at a premium.
