Fixing overmodulated sound; is it possible to do?
 
I've got some footage that I didn't expect to need to use, in which the sound is peaking when the interviewee speaks up (laughs, etc). Is there any effective way to clean this up a little (I know that it can't be totally fixed).
Thanks

Others say they have good luck using Waves Restoration De-Click and De-Crackle plugins. Cedar hardware Declicker is excellent, but quite expensive, can be rented. Also try SoundSoap Pro, I think it's for mac only.

check out iZotope RX - the declipper seems pretty nifty in the demo

"eliminate overload distortion by automatically rebuilding clipped sections of audio"

Thanks for the advice; I'll check both of these suggestions out.

Sony Noise Reduction 2.0 has a function to handle this.

Of course, your success depends on how much overload there is. I have used it successfully when I thought there was no hope.

Sony Noise Reduction 2.0 is now included as part of Sound Forge. I bought mine as an add-on to Sony Vegas.
