Actually, no. What he described was a limited resolution of the pitch
value. ("Can't change the pitch precisely enough.") In audio terms, this is
a limited bitrate.

What you described was a limited temporal resolution. ("Can't change the
pitch often enough.") In audio terms, this is a limited sample rate.

They can have similar effects, and digital systems suffer from both to
varying degrees, but they are different phenomena.
