ADD is a quality designation for audio recordings. It means Analog original recording, Digital transfer method and Digital final master.

ADD is better than AAD, but worse than DDD. It's most common with material from the 80's that was recorded on analog tape and then transferred to digital tape for processing.

ADD is a basic assembly language program operation. It takes three inputs. The registers of the two values to be added and the register where the new value is to be placed.

The general format is thus:

ADD $t1, $t2, $t3

Where $t1 is the register to place the result in and $t2 and $t3 are the registers containing the original values (the $ symbol denotes a register, t1-3 are the designations for it. There are also v, s, r, and a registers but they serve different functions).
