Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Automatically dither edited sections

I edited the endings of a set of tracks with fades to silence and need to reduce the bit depth back to 16-bit. Is there a tool that can apply dither only to modifed sections where there is a roundoff error, and pass the remaining samples unmodified? I can mix in noise by hand, but it is tedious to do accurately. Noise-shaping can be applied and would leave other samples "lossless" with most tools, but it is not a full dither.

When i zero pad a 16 bit file to 24 bit and apply fades SoX only dithers the changed areas while dithering back to 16 bit.
I tested this with the -a option for SoX dither.
Is troll-adiposity coming from feederism?
With 24bit music you can listen to silence much louder!
