in a piano roll/sequencer id take a guess at quantization... ive seen it in cubase but never used it

in EQ's and filters its the bandwidth... high Q = low bandwidth, low Q = high bandwidth

see the diagram below.....

notice how the the frequency and gain are the same on both EQ's, only the Q has been changed....
