For me actually not, because the Breath controller would need to support this as well. As TEC did not implement it yet, even though I did try to push them, I would not even be able to test a SWAM 14 bit enhancement in realtime. (BTW this would not need to be a "Beta", as the 14 Bit Midi technology automatically is fully compatible to the legacy 7 bit implementation: if the low 7 bit are not received they just stay on a default of "64".)

Regarding the Kontakt based SM instruments, SM can't help with high resolution in any way, as this would need to be a Kontakt feature. Supposedly the existing SM instruments would automatically benefit from a 14 Bit Kontakt engine.

Regarding advantage: For me it is really bad that the SWAM Flute starts with an attack when slowly increasing the expression value from 0 to 5. It's impossible to do a "soft starting" sound. Here a decent resolution really could help. On higher expression values than 5, Swam performance is just great as it is.

This is something that could / should be improved regardless of the resolution, isn't it?
I mean you're talking about a sound that is different in harmonic structure, with a dominant breathing noise and little tonality? If not, then I don't see the problem with the soft attack as it is.

With the Swam Flute, an expression value of lower than 5 is silence and 6 already is a rather loud sound, disregarding the attack, But the attack heard with starting is absolutely appropriate for a sound of that intensity.

IMHO, only 4 additional steps between silence and the sound produced at level "5" is by far too coarse. So higher resolution seems appropriate.
