Distortion On Piano Track

    How can I get rid of the distortion on the opening bars of this track.
    The track has not been eq'ed and I want to,if possible, preserve the existing tone, whilst removing the crackle. The track barely peaks at -6 on the meters, so I dont believe its clipping. I hope I have provided enough info and would greatly appreciate any help wth this.
    Thanks in advance

    crackle

    You might be able to filter that out with a good audio program--not sure how much of the piano you will lose.

    You could have easily been overdriving the pre-amps on the board or possibly over driving the microphones themselves. Neither of which would show up on your peak meters.

    Hi Sloop,
    Thanks for the input.I should have mentioned that the piano wav. file is imported from Reason, so no preamps etc at my end. The track is not clipping within Reason either.
