Hopefully someone here can answer this, because I've been google-ing around for a while and can't find a (good) forum for sound editing like HTF is for home theater... If I have an MP3 file. Is there any value in me converting it in Sound Forge (or whichever editor) to 24-bit for editing... then converting it back down to 16-bit with dithering and noise shaping before saving it as a wav file for CD burning purposes? Does this process somehow clean up artifacts and noises during the upconversion and downconversion, or is this just a wasted effort? My reasoning for trying this is I though it might work like how a few DVD players now are 12-bit / 108khz to improve picture quality even though DVD-Video is only 10-bit on output.
