Four channel system used in audio to try and give the listener the effect of a 360 degree sound field.

Quantization (Quantisation)
In Midi, quantization is the process where midi notes are moved in the time domain. A Midi part will be divided into subsections (e.g. quarter notes, or sixteenth notes). The Midi notes are then moved to the time of the closest subsection.

Often quantization is used to correct timing errors as played by a performer or to change the feel of a Midi part.

Quarter Power Points (Q)
These are the points on an audio response curve of a bandpass filter that define the Bandwidth of the filter. Commonly referred to as the ‘Q’ of the filter. Each point defines the frequency at which the amplitude of the bandpass response results in a signal power that is 1/4 of the power of that at the peak or centre frequency.

The hardest part of playing is starting, getting up on stage and relaxing in the moment. Before you can share your music with others, you must reach for it inside yourself, in solitude. It is a form of meditation that sometimes takes many hours and sometimes comes in a flash. The transition from this solitary state to the arena of public performance is critical and takes practice. Access All Areas is not granted freely. This is the point of no return, of great stress and great joy.”
