You don’t even need to do that. If you put a fixed resistor in parallel with your pot, it makes a reverse audio.
A “tapered” pot is actually probably a better curve than any of the pots we’re using. Most of them have a single breakpoint.

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.
