Default Re: Dithering


if you dither from 24 to 16bit after bounce or do it manually it´s the same.

here´s an article about the topic from Bob Katz:

find out more here:

besides the technical explanations, these sources tell you:
- if dither is good for you depends on the audio material.
e.g. audio with very low or silent audio levels.

- only dither when from going from high to low bit levels 24->16 etc.

- dithering is the very last step before going into duplication.
