(To be clear, I'm not asking if repeated copying of a WAV degrades the file. I know the answer to that is no.) So, if I paste a bunch of WAV masters into, let's say, SoundForge, to sequence an album after mixing and mastering....And I do dozens of tiny cuts in volume, raises in volume, removing small spaces, adding silence between tracks, AND I HIT "SAVE" AFTER EACH little edit, will it degrade the file? I know people will say "you should do that in a project file of a non-destructive NLE program", but I prefer destructive editing for this. Particularly Sound Forge. If I do 120 cuts and saves in a 90-minute long, 24-bit, 44.1k stereo WAV file, will it degrade the overall audio at all? I Googled a bunch of things and couldn't find the answer anywhere, at least not from people who seemed to know what they were talking about. I figured y'all here would know for sure one way or the other. :synth:rockoutabduction Thank you!
