List iOS synths that respond to 14-bit CC

There are a couple controllers that produce 14-bit CCs (either RPN or NRPN), but there is almost no information about which synths will actually respond to all 14 bits. Some synths that respond to NRPNs only listen to the MSB (first 7 bits).

The only iOS synth that I know of that responds to 14-bit CC is iVCS3. I thought I'd start a list, in case others are interested in smoother, less-steppy control of pitch, amp, cutoff, etc. So here's the list so far:

1. iVCS3

Any others?

14-bit control is a feature that should be more widely demanded, implemented, and used.

When we modulate pitch, amplitude, filter-cutoff, etc., are we always satisfied with only 128 steps of value? Our ears can perceive much finer differences in pitch and amp than 7 bits will allow, and we can certainly hear stepped values as zipper noise.

Presumably the developer can smooth the change from one CC value to the next, but what if the place we want to land is very specific and between the values 7-bits affords-- it may seem like I'm splitting hairs, but the differences are much thicker than hairs.
