I'm rather sure Sound Forge decodes the file first.  However, you
still have a compressed MP3 file which when decoded and then recoded
into MP3 again will likely lose a bit.

But, this is about as good as you will probably get when editing an
MP3 file.

If I'm not mistaken, SF is decoding for you in the background.

Howdy, Larry and all.  Larry, I am listening to your latest podcast on
digital recorders, and you state that you have to convert an mp3 file
to a wave file before you can edit it.  I don't understand this one,
as I always edit my mp3 files directly in SoundForge and just hit the
save option.  Am I missing something here?  I think you can do the
same thing in Goldwave and Total Recorder.  I could be wrong about
Total Recorder because I don't use it.  Thanks so much for the
excellent work, as always!!!  I like the sound of the MicroTrack.
