Ok, so here's the deal: I'm looking to start doing some mastering, and I'm a using a Digidesign 001. I plan on going Digital out of the 001 into a Cranesong HEDD, into a Manley Vari-mu, back into the crane song, and into the digital in of the 001. My question is this: Will this completely bypass any potential quality loss the 001 could add to the sound? Is there anything else the 001 will be putting into the sound that might be of comprimising quality? I know there's plenty of people that would like to say "The 001 sucks, get rid of it", but I would like a technical reason as to why the 001 would affect the sound quality.
