To Dither or Not

Dither of course. The video above shows you why. It’s been a while since my last album so in preparing the files for the new baby I realized I need to get things from 32bit to 16bit. As per some Gearslutz advice I’m going with the Pow-r type.

“Dither is an intentionally applied form of noise used to randomize quantization error, preventing large-scale patterns such as “banding” in images. Dither is routinely used in processing of both digital audio and digital video data, and is often one of the last stages of audio production to compact disc.” – Wikipedia
