Dither on the Lynx aes16
« on: April 27, 2011, 03:32:43 pm »

This is not really a mastering question , but if anyone knows dither its you guys.   


There is a Dithering option on every channel of the Lynx AES16, in the main control software it comes with.  I dont get it.  Why would you put dither on something thats not being converted from 24 to 16. 

Why is it there? should I have it turned on?

Thanks for the help, Bryan

the lynx mixer runs at 32bit float IIRC, so you get the option to dither down from there, it seems.
