TCM MASTERING: TO DITHER OR NOT TO DITHER…

Audio Dithering

TCM Mastering’s Ted Carfrae responds to a question on dithering…

I have been asked a few times now about audio dithering and weather you should dither your mixes before sending them to me for mastering and my answer is No.

Dithering is a part of the mastering process and I will apply dithering using top quality Rosetta Apogee digital converters to get your mastered tracks to the required 16bit 44khz for CD replication.

The resulting quality will be lossless. It does not matter if you are working at 48,96 or 192khz, supply me with your final masters and leave the rest to me.
