I'm a newbie and ask here if somebody can help. I have recorded the attached clip from a pianola (line-out jack) to a pc. But I don't know why I have this distortion. I think that this is not a level problem. Is it possible to remove or repair? How? And for the future: how I can avoid this?
Thank you!

A problem is I don't know what it's _supposed_ to sound like. I hear what sounds like frequency response shifting as the level goes down similar to analog Dolby playback processing of a non Dolby encoded source. There may be some frequency response changes but again, I don't know what it's _supposed_ to be.

When I go look up 'pianola' I find "A player piano (also known as pianola or autopiano) is a self-playing piano, containing a pneumatic or electro-mechanical mechanism that operates the piano action via pre-programmed music perforated paper,...." based on a real piano which has no 'line out' jacks. So, what exactly are you doing?

Sorry! I use a digital piano (a Yamaha Clavinova) and record the sound from line-out to pc line-in. I use Audacity for record. But sometime I have the recorded sound that sounds like if there was a clipping (like in the attached clip), but the signal is not so high... I must set the record level in audacity to something very low.
