Dither: Digital Audio Foundations

Using measurements on a ruler as an analogy, Matt illustrates how quantization distortion can happen when extremely small samples are rounded off to 0 during quantization.Then he demonstrates how dither noise (added before the quantization step) can eliminate the quantization distortion for the tradeoff of having an analog-like noise floor. Dither is usually done through a DAW automatically and, as long as it's enabled, quantization distortion is very rare.
