this is a fine solution if you just want to control something with a
non-linear fader.
however, you cannot convert things withit (sending "10" to a
(logarithmic or not) fader will output "10")

if you want to convert values from one range to another (e.g. linear ->
log), use objects of the [rmstodb] family.

if you have the iemlib, there is also a [fadtodb] (and simile, like
[rmstofad]), which is a very non-linear curve similar to faders in
real-world mixers.
