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.
