Maybe I am being an idiot but if the da is colored won't that affect tracking/ mix/ master decisions even though the sonic imprint is not actually printed or present in the actual audio?

I'm trying to understand these da's. Thanks to anyone who has answers
The way that converter works is pretty strange(unique) it has a really clean AD>pres and the DA has the tape electronics on it, so the way you get the tape sound is that it has internal routing that routes the DA output thru the electronics and back thru the AD and to AES/SPIDF. I hope i explained it correctly, if not im sure Doc will be be able to correct me if im wrong.
