    Hello. how can i edit a MP3 file (i use Sound Forge) without re-encoding it, but remaining in the MP3 format? This is a problem as when encoded, a few bits of silence appear at the beginning and at the end of the file, so that it cannot be looped. when i cut this silence out and try to re-save the file, then SF re-encode it and adds again the silence and so on... neverending story.
    Please help.

    found the solution: using a MP3 editor (like the freeware WavePad). easy. Maybe it'a problem with Sound Forge!?
