They are there the whole time along - I won't get into digital audio theory unless you really want me to, but essentially digital recording is only possible because of the amount of time that goes into actually correcting the flaws in the conversion processes. Dithering is a good example of quantisation error correction, and anti-aliasing is another example of correction. Most of what we record into the computer is corrected heavily by processing.
of course this is true but i just really don't see the point in trying to make a recording sound "raw" by adding processes to it?
