What is lossless editing?



In simple terms, most editors cause a loss of sound quality when editing popular formats like MP3 or AAC. This occurs because other editors repeatedly re-encode MP3 and AAC files in order to edit them. To begin editing, they must first decompress the files to raw audio. After editing is complete, the file must be re-encoded back to the lossy MP3 or AAC format, and this results in an undesirable reduction in quality.

Unlike these other editors, Fission losslessly edits audio files in all of its native formats (AAC, MP3, Apple Lossless, FLAC, AIFF, and WAV). When Fission edits a file in one of these formats, the resulting file will have no quality loss from the original file. Using Fission and saving losslessly means you'll never have to worry about losing quality when you edit your audio.
