THERE IS NO LOSS.....
the SOUND you HEAR is a DIGITAL RECREATION OF A WAVEFORM.
it is effectively a LINE DRAWING OF THE SHAPE OF THE SINE WAVES THAT YOU
this is NOT an ANALOG ADDITIVE TECHNOLOGY....
it's not like one ounce plus one ounce =3D 2 ounces.....
it is like superimposing one PICTURE over another PICTURE.....whereever the
lines are the same, the lines are the same....there is no point in
recreating them twice....digital doesn't work like that...
tho analog will, to a point.
so.,..,...sonically, there is no loss....
remember, moments of SILENCE in tracks that are mixed also show up as a lin=
so if ya add two sections that have unison silence and it only draws one,
what do you lose??
no loss=3D no SUCK.

I'm not sure I understand. Are you saying there will
be some data loss? That would SUCK!
