well maybe it isn't, but let's begin. I like to record streams of audio, music and talk shows through my rippng software. For insance, a 60 minute set. Now let's say I want to segment it by using a software like Sound Forge to record while I play the set through a media player, with this method would there be sound quality loss ? I'm assuming since everything is digital on the PC, it's a digital2digital process, with no degradation, am I right ?
