Use 24 bit or above for editing

I was doing some research on export settings from ableton and came across this forum post which suggests that you should always use 24 bit or above for editing to avoid any degradation of the audio file, as you will hear the difference with 16 bit. Thats to say even if you are editing an mp3 – convert to 24bit not 16 bit to make the edits.
