One could, theoretically, let a person choose their update rate and
precision (#bits) in some setting. Either globally or per control. The
first time I encountered this was in a go-kart speedometer (data
logger). Every time the axle goes around you can calculate a new
speed/period. Then asynchronously, you can determine how often to show
this to a user. Maybe even filter it with past values so it's not so jumpy.
So with a synth you could set the bit depth (7 bit, 14-bit) and max
update rate. Hard to say if it's worth it for the 1% of end-users that
would use it. Also, not only digital filtering, but analog low pass
filtering on the derived CV's if there is analog stuff in the end sound
source. Like the S&H caps. But whether analog or digital, this will
introduce slight response/lag. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing...
