I hope we get that option so we don't have to use other programs to do it. Audacity has it and so should Wavosaur. That is really the biggest advantage that Audacity has. You can't really dither the 64 bit files from Wavosaur to Audacity because it only has 32 bits as it's highest.

When can we exspect the next update?

Hello rocco91

We'll have a look at that
I wonder if there are VST plugins that can do that kind task, but i'm not sure about how to use them (i think about MDA dither but don't know if it can handle 64bits -> 16/8 etc..)

(...about the only advantage - the way Audacity handles VST plugins, for instance, is kind of erm "basic" Rolling Eyes compared to Wavosaur!)

Great feature request - thanks for suggesting it, rocco91 :)

+1 for dithering.

Note to the Wavosaur devs -

You probably already know this, but mda has just released the source code for all his plugins (including the dither one, of course):

Yes it's always interresting to read source codes, but don't forget that we re-write all our algorithms to avoir problem with licences.
Wavosaur try to have always original source code, to avoid re use for example (bug propagation), to have more efficient algos and so on.

Our DSP designer is working on dithering. But I can't tell you if there will be OK for next release.

Thanks for all these infos!

Edit: just a little thank to Paul Kellett for his job... And a remark, I loved mdaPiano and mdaEpiano GUI...! Wink

Fair point.

Hey, there's no rush! It's always better to take one's time and get such things right (IMHO, anyway!)

You're welcome!

I still use mdaPiano sometimes. Maybe not for solos or exposed/foreground parts, but I think it sounds fine for basic piano parts in the mix.

Don't remember a GUI, though Question Didn't think it had one! (Une blague, non?)

I think you wanted to say "plugins" instead of "GUI" !
i remember someone made a different GUI for mda piano
I like the sound of the mda Epiano too , and still use it

Hehe Rex, I spoke about GUI to answer Paul Kellett readme.txt file inside the source code:

Quote:
The GUIs for
"mda Piano" and "mda ePiano" are not included for the same reason,
and also because nobody really liked them.
