- quality_bitmaskstr or int
Bitmask (integer) which identifies the quality flag bitmask that should be used to mask out bad cadences. If a string is passed, it has the following meaning:
“none”: no cadences will be ignored.
“default”: cadences with severe quality issues will be ignored.
“hard”: more conservative choice of flags to ignore. This is known to remove good data.
“hardest”: removes all data that has been flagged. This mask is not recommended.
