QEvent

abstract class quantizationtools.QEvent(offset=0, index=None)

Abstract base class from which concrete QEvent subclasses inherit.

Represents an attack point to be quantized.

All QEvents possess a rational offset in milliseconds, and an optional index for disambiguating events which fall on the same offset in a QGrid.

Attribute summary

index The optional index, for sorting QEvents with identical offsets.
offset The offset in milliseconds of the event.
__eq__(argument) Is true when ID of argument equals ID of Abjad object.
__format__([format_specification]) Formats Abjad object.
__hash__() Hashes Abjad object.
__lt__(argument) Is true when epxr is a q-event with offset greater than that of this q-event.
__ne__(argument) Is true when Abjad object does not equal argument.

Read-only properties

QEvent.index

The optional index, for sorting QEvents with identical offsets.

QEvent.offset

The offset in milliseconds of the event.

Special methods

(AbjadObject).__eq__(argument)

Is true when ID of argument equals ID of Abjad object. Otherwise false.

Returns true or false.

(AbjadObject).__format__(format_specification='')

Formats Abjad object.

Set format_specification to ‘’ or ‘storage’. Interprets ‘’ equal to ‘storage’.

Returns string.

(AbjadObject).__hash__()

Hashes Abjad object.

Required to be explicitly redefined on Python 3 if __eq__ changes.

Returns integer.

QEvent.__lt__(argument)

Is true when epxr is a q-event with offset greater than that of this q-event. Otherwise false.

Returns true or false.

(AbjadObject).__ne__(argument)

Is true when Abjad object does not equal argument. Otherwise false.

Returns true or false.

(AbjadObject).__repr__()

Gets interpreter representation of Abjad object.

Returns string.
