    great video! Very interesting. Would someone mind answering a question? How can you add dither to a recording in a DAW such as Cubase? Or is it sort of built in now days?
    Please take a listen if you have time

    You add a dither plugin in the bottom insert on the master output channel. Cubase comes with a dither plugin.

    Excellent video! I thought I understand the relationship between sample depth and sample rate, as well their relative effects on sound, but I was dead wrong! This video explained everything clearly.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Maybe the title of this thread should be changed from "explained" to "de-bunked".
