So, it would have been very easy for people to find out which was the 8bit version, by simply listening to the fade out. That's what I wanted to avoid and why I removed the dithering.

 

I am very aware of what dithering does and how it works. BTW, I wrote the following page, providing audio examples and audible tests:

It shows how dithering, applied to an 8-bit file, increases the dynamic range by 18dB!


Thanks for confirming. I also took a look at the other page. Yeah, fading into audible noise would be more obvious i guess, I was just suprised by how inaudible the quantization noise was in the tracks.

It's an interesting website so thanks, I'm curious to know how many people can tell pass the abx test using those tracks though.

Ethan Winer covers dithering in his Audio Myths video. See my sig for a link.
