../_images/bitdepth.png

Depth selector controls output bit depth of dithered signal.


../_images/type.png

Type selector controls dither type.

Type 1

Natural / Transparent

Type 2

Open / Wide

Type 3

Warm / Slight de-essor feelings

Type 4

Electronic / Enhancement

When Auto Black is enabled (lighting), output is muted if input signal fall below threshold level. ACTIVE indicator lights up when auto-black is working.

Plugin-Specific Menu

Deterministic Noise Source

Checked

All dither instances generate a same dither noise sequence after playback. This enables to get exactly same result beyond multiple bounces of same source, same range. This behavior might not be achieved depending to DAW’s actual plugin initialization implementation. Appropriate for single dither instance configuration, and you need to get exactly same result between bounces.

Unchecked (default)

Every dither instances generate different noise sequence. Appropriate for single or multiple dither instance configuration, e.g. final master or outboard send preprocess.
