I used this all the time. It was perfect for a double track effect on the lead vocal by slightly shifting the pitch and adding a short delay.  Guitarists used it all the time as an effect by turning up the Feedback control for a wild tunneling effect. I would occasionally use it to manually pitch down a drum full for a wild effect. I also used it to detune room Mics on a drum kit recorded in a small room. It gave it a sense of size and depth. I would even use it to pitch a vocal on a long note that may have gone flat. It would be on a separate fader on the console and be cross faded with the original track when needed.
