MIDI resolution can be changed without changing tempo, the pauses are quantised to the new resolution steps.

MIDI Resolution (ppq)
MIDI resolution defines number of units per quarter note for whole song (resolution). A MIDI unit is the smallest usable pause or note duration in the song. The smallest usable pause or note is 1/(4*resolution) units (e.g. for resolution 96 the smallest note is 1/384 = 1/(3*128), that means that it can be used precisely for trioles of 1/128 notes).  

Hint: 96 ppq is recommended for General MIDI compatible songs.

Hint: Some players might not be able to play songs with too high resolution, reducing resolution with this operation should help.
