All I can say is I hate how it sounds. And to think this sample is from a song currently in the Billboard Top 10 (Nelly Furtado[Loose] - Say It Right). Can anyone help?

I saw this thread and just had to reply smile.gif though it's quite old...

The first time I heard the song "Say it right", I thought, "How can someone release this??" crying.gif

Yet, it is not clipped. I have the "Loose" album (CD Version), so I can look at the wavs...
It must have "happened" when mixing, the basedrum track must have been totally overdriven. Whoever did this 1. was doing it on purpose and 2. should be ashamed of him/herself...

So, you can't use a declipper to fix this.

Someday, as a weekend project, I will try some tricks to "fix" it...

EDIT: ok, i found out Nelly wanted it to sound that way:


good to know, but bad taste, IMHO
