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!

IMO the attached file doesn't sound like clipped.

Second time listening I captured with Audition. The reason you hear no clipping is because there isn't any at all. I don't know if his record level is best but it certainly isn't overloading.

So, at this point I think that it must be a problem of my hw (pc audio, ampli, spekers). I must research more...

If your PC works like mine, you should be able to record a signal that on playback is indistinguishable from the original. This assumes you have high enough levels to be away from the noise floor but not drive into clipping. I use Audition but I hear many good things about Audacity. BTW none of my gear needs to 'warm up' before it's ready to behave properly. The PC is ready as son as it boots.

I've got no distortion either, so it must be on your end. But I just wanted to say I like it and so does my girlfriend! biggrin.gif
