Just for grins, here's a short fadeout rendered to 8 bits. The first tone is without JS/dither_psycho, the second tone is with.

Remember that 8 bit resolution is like telling your speakers that they are only allowed to be in one of 256 possible positions, so there's no possible processing that will result in a pristine noiseless tone for this test. The goal of dithering is to convert the ugly truncation noise you hear in the first fadeout into less ear-catching background hiss you hear in the second.
