Range of dither types for word-length reduction. Converted to foobar2000 from Paul Kellett's VST plug-in. Changes from the original are added support for any number of input channels and slightly improved configuration layout. Dither math is identical.

Note: mda Dither and Smart Dither component use different scale for dither amplitude. 2.0 bits in mda is equal to 1.0 bits in Smart Dither, but for example 1.0 bits is less than 0.5 bits in Smart Dither. Lower dither amplitude than the default won't be able to eliminate distortion in all situations.
