    De-clipping
    Hi folks, I did an audio recording the other day, which went fine except the vocalist gave it one heck of a blast on the last couple of bars and it has clipped slightly. I have heard that it is possible to de-clip by selecting the offending section and cutting out everything above say 2kHz in the EQ. I applied the EQ effect and it seemed to work. However, I have never applied EQ to a small part of a track before (I am fairly new to this) and I am pretty sure I have applied the EQ effect to the whole track which may be undesirable. Can anybody tell me how to apply effects to a limited section of a track please? Thanks

    Re: De-clipping
    Why don't you copy just that small area with the clipping part to a new audio track and then do the EQ effect on that track. then listen back and hear it it plays through the audio regions smoothly. If not then reduce the size of the audio region. You best bet though would be to re-record the vocalist again and make sure there's not clipping going into the audio track. As though even there are corrective measures it will be a sacrifice on the audio quality.
