I searched for 'dither' but didn't find my answer. I often get files from other musicians in 24bit /44.1 kHz Wave files. I would like to end up with 16 bit and dithered properly. Can Pro do this?

Unlikely.
I wondered, too. I searched the web and found some articles about Core Audio's built-in Sample Rate Conversion (SRC) obviously beaing of rather poor quality, at least in Tiger. I didn't find anything about Leopard though.

I forgot to add that Martin stated in another post that Amadeus Pro is utilizing Core Audio for the conversion, hence my reference to it.

Personally, for converting more critical files I use Logic Express 8 which has several professional dithering algorithms built in.
