Dither Effects

Dither effects allow you to control the noise that is produced by quantization errors that can occur when you mix down to a lower resolution.

Dithering adds a special kind of noise at an extremely low level to minimize the effect of quantization errors. This is hardly noticeable and much preferred to the distortion that otherwise occurs.


As Cubase internally uses 32-bit float resolution, all integer resolutions are lower. However, the negative effects are most noticeable when mixing down to 16-bit format or lower.
