    After exporting a mix from Reason I came across this horrible wave shape, and after trying my luck with sound forge's DC offset I'm confused as what to do about it. I've never had this problem before. Is there a quick fix for this sort of thing?

    What exactly is it? A lot of sounds don't have symmetrical wave forms. That does look a little messed up though...

    It's an ambient trip-hop sort of track. I think I figured it though, I ran a scientific filter to "remove subsonic rumble" and it sorted it out without making it sound any different (to my ears anyway).

    Some synth sounds will do this, as well as some vocals and horns.

    Looks like you used an internal sound card and the DC is way off. Since you're using audition high light the ^#$%ed up parts and go to Amplify and there's a DC fix thing and just find the zero and itll fix it kinda........
