I use wav and when i change it to 16bit/44.1kHz it plays ok. So for this usage it maybe is ok. But higher resolutions is better and more crisp. I'm building a drumpad for fun on mobile(Android for now) and use the play command. It has to respond fast so the player will be probably too slow, also ut just has to play quickly multiple samples without the player UI coming to front. 
Apart from this, when using music it would be nice to have Opus support (free codec and getting more popular on many platforms, see Wikipedia about it) and much higher resolutions.
