What Linpro noise shape should I use?

As title says ,what noise shape options should I use on the Linpro dither?
I red Wavelab plugin reference and it lacks of information and MAAT manual explains the theory but I’m confused about what type of noise shape should apply.
It depends on the kind of music? Should I do need to test all options?
Any advice is welcome.

Indeed … all I wanted was a ‘flat’ TPDF

Like you … and after reading everything I could find … I was unable to work out with certainty what that looked like in LinPro.

I also noticed that LinPro seemed to take what I would consider an unusual amount of time to process in a batch processor. I lost confidence in what was going on under the hood.

In the end I just bought GoodDither (GoodHz) and set it to TPDF Goodhertz, Inc. If I’m working in 9.5 I just use the MBit+ TPDF

You can still ask advanced question to the supplier of this plugin (https://www.maat.digital/)

Can this be checked? Paul is right, the MAAT Lin Pro dither in Wavelab is not fast. It’s slower than all of the other methods of getting flat TPDF out of Wavelab, and it’s also slower than the original MAAT dither plugin to do the same thing. It would be nice if it was faster than the original plug-in because they’re both slower than everything else, but it should be at least as fast as the original plug-in.

Time to render an hour program file on a not fast windows notebook from 44.1 32 bit to 44.1 16 bit with flat tpdf:

Wavelab MAAT Lin Pro - 4 m 30 s
Original MAAT Lin Pro plugin - 2 m 45 s
Wavelab 10 Izotope dither - 2 m 10 s
Goodhertz dither - 1 m
Wavelab internal dither - 30 s

What version exactly? The WaveLab version, supplied by Maat, is meant to be the same.

Good Dither for the win!

Original MAAT Lin pro plugin from MAAT v4.1.1

MAAT Lin pro plugin in Wavelab 11.0.30

They’re not the same speed, and they’re both slower than everything else.

Both using: 16 bit. Triangular. No noise Shaping. Auto blanking off.

Wavelab Internal dither for the win. :slightly_smiling_face:

Ah, I was just talking about the 3rd party options. Good Dither offers a lot of great features, is very stable in WaveLab, and renders very quickly. It’s my go to.

You’re right. Wavelab Internal needs an Auto Blanking option, like the others. But the speed is impressive if you don’t care about auto blanking.
