The Oakley Diode Superladder Variable Slope VCF

via Oakley Sound where you'll find full details. The following is just an excerpt.

"The Oakley Diode Superladder is the new version of our long running Superladder filter design. This new version has been especially created to use diodes as the control element instead of transistors. Earlier versions of the Superladder could be built either as transistor or diode ladders but in 2007 a choice was made to concentrate on the transistor version only. The Superladder was therefore optimised to sound good with transistors only...

The Diode Superladder VCF features both voltage control over frequency and resonance. Unique to any diode ladder filter is has a variable shape output. This incorporates a feature first seen on the Oakley Orbital prototypes. A single pot allows you to vary the output from one (or two) pole low pass to four (or five) pole low pass via band pass in the middle."
