There are two kinds of tasks at Seti:
1. Multibeam
2. Astropulse

Multibeam are the 'small' tasks you talk about. They can be compared to narrowband.
Astropulse are the bigger tasks, which can be compared to wideband.

See https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ap_faq.php for more information on the latter.
