What format are you saving in? Normal CD quality wave, low bit depth or low sample rate wave, mp3?
Normal CD quality wave (thank you for reading and responding)
Weird. As a test, try File > New, make sure how it's set, record some audio, do some saving, and see what happens to that.
Is this a new problem?
We're talking edit view, yes?
Have you got "system sounds" disabled in Windows?
>Normal CD quality wave
Make sure it's a Microsoft Windows PCM and not an ACM file. They are both wav file formats but the ACM ones can save in all sorts of weird ways - including as MP3s. They still look like wav files, but they sure as hell don't behave like 'em!

Doesn't sound like it - he mentions exporting. If you use the fatal combination of 16-bit exporting at a sub-optimal level, then re-opening the file repeatedly and doing the same thing again, it doesn't take many goes to end up with the equivalent of an 8-bit file - which will sound like sh*t, of course.
So, do your mixing as 32-bit FP, and then, if you are going to save a file and work on it again, you won't lose any quality at all (see the AA1.5 FAQs for more information about this).
