Highly unlikely, dithering should be very a subtle effect, not the kind
of thing you are describing. 

On which particular Midiman model is this happening?

I don't mean to discourage you from posting here but you may want to ask
this on the alsa developers mailing list - they should know exactly what
the controls do to the hardware (if you manage to reach whoever wrote
the driver).
