Question: How would you code in JS an effect that sounds exactly like a bitcrusher, but you are not allowed to use anu JS function/module/effect/whatever that actually does bitcrushing (nothing else than 16-bit (say) is allowed all along). Please be as specific as you can :)

    If you mean JS as in JSFX:
    scale = 2^15; // 16-bit
    iscale = 1 / scale;
    spl0 = floor(spl0 * scale + 0.5) * iscale;
    spl1 = floor(spl1 * scale + 0.5) * iscale;
    If you mean JavaScript, well, not sure what that would look like but the same logic of Math.floor would be useful...

    Is this a code of a bitcrusher which reduces bitrate down to 16 bit and not lower?

    it makes the noise floor around -96dB, but doesn't limit the maximum volume (if you send it a very hot signal you can get more than 16-bit dynamic range)
