Dithering Explained


Why is dithering important to your 32bit mix if you want to release or send it to someone 16bit or 24bit and even mp3 of your project?

Well, without dithering, it makes the centered dithering in picture blurry. With option dithering on, it makes the 16bit sound more balanced and in the right shape as it routes the sound cuts to the best level.

dithering explained

By sound, you make it into 16bit off 32bit where you cut out 16bits of the track near each another 100th millisecond for tracks that are 16bit. So it’s often essential to use dithering.

The process of dithering makes the sound aligned and, therefore, without noise, which creates a delighted route of the sound and interconnects each millisecond. Dithering in that way can produce bass or high frequencies without clip or noise.

Without dithering, you create noise crackle of the 32bit sound, which FL produces by rendering 16bit or 24bit, even mp3’s. And FL is 100% 32bit processing. So dithering is always recommended.

So what to do? Always use the option dithering, even if you don’t know what it is in the output of your render of a file of 24bit or 16bit or mp3.

The last picture explains to you that 16 bit is the division of shorter, and the higher digital bit makes the division higher. Imagine you cut out each of the parts that are in between to make room for a 16bit; then, you are making cuts that make cutting sound. Without dithering, you don’t route it into a better solution; in fact, you will then probably hear clipping on certain types of music.

Especially when sending your track for mastering, don’t ever send 16bit not dithered!
