Er rødt og hvidt udtalt med bløde d?

In the words rødt and hvidt (and any other neuter version of an adjective ending in d) I can’t tell if I’m supposed to say a “soft D” (the weird L-like thing that supposedly sounds like TH) sound before the T, because the voice is a bit muddled on Duo.

In almost every case it will pronounced without the soft "d" when it conjugates to a "dt" ending. However, there are some dialects that pronounce the soft "d." I'd recommend training yourself to say them without the soft "d" because that's the way almost everyone says it.
