Quote of the Day

ďAs soon as you start relying completely on technology, you may end up with something that only shines on the first listen. What you need is something thatís going to be interesting to you over and over. And the only thing that gives you that is people, because machines donít have a soul.Ē- Patrick Leonard

Resolution (audio term)

A numeric measurement defining the smallest detail, which in turn defines the level of accuracy of representation. In digital audio the resolution depends on Bit Rate, Sample Rate, Quantization and Compression. Other usages of the term: Clock fractions per quarter note in MIDI sequencers; number of available steps for MIDI controllers, typically 128 steps, except for Pitch Bend, not technically a CC Control Change message, with 14-bit resolution resulting in 16,384 values. In other fields: Pixel (picture elements) resolution in digital video and photography and print media.
