Default Dither/Noise Shaping not working correctly for FLAC and WavPack (FIXED)

I just noticed that exporting 24bit WavPack and FLAC files with Dither and Noise Shaping (from 32bit) for selected tracks (stems) isn't doing the job properly. Let's check it with null tests:

I've attached a project with 3 tracks:

Track 1 has a file that was rendered as 32bit WAV.

Track 2 has a file that was rendered as 24bit FLAC with Dither and Noise Shaping using the option "Master Mix" in the render dialog.

Track 3 has a file that was rendered as 24bit FLAC with Dither and Noise Shaping using the option "Selected tracks (stems)" in the render dialog.


When rendering: The Master Track was always at 0dB. No plug-ins involved.

Steps:

1) Solo track 1 and track 2
2) Invert polarity on track 1
3) Hit play

Result: Only the dither noise is heard as expected.

4) Now unsolo track 2 and solo track 3
5) Hit play

Result: The dither noise is heard (and the noise is very loud and I think it wasn't even shaped) and we can heard the kick drum distorted.

The same thing happens with WavPack.

Fixing, thanks. In versions 6.30-6.32, the dither and noise shaping checkboxes are applied correctly to the master mix, but ignored when rendering stems.
