Can someone please help me? I am recording piano, then copy/paste to another track to change to other instrumentation using east/west. I can hear a bellow sound when notes are holding. What is going on? (My publisher hears it as well. I have replaced my pedal and the usb.)

welcome!

if you can attach a short clip of the issue via the mp3 upload, we may be able to isolate your issue.

I agree with Audio Kid about attaching a clip. Essentially, the further from the piano you get the quieter the pedal noise will be compared to the piano strings. Sometimes just over the head of the player is a great spot when things like this happen. The piano player will be playing so that what they hear sounds good. If you're by their ear it will let you know what they hear and give you a sense of what is going on.

She says she has "replaced the pedal" so are we not talking about a real piano but an electronic one? Can you explain exactly what you are doing? Please let us hear the problem.
