Levels a little High on recording, Is there a tool to correct this at all

I recorded a show last night Prong/Overkill at Joes in Chicago and i was using a sony mz-n707 with a sony ecm-ds70p stereo mic and i was using the manual adjust for the recording level (my first recording recording try) and i thought i had a good non maxed out level but the levels are a little high on prong and even a little more for overkill. What i was wondering was if there is any way to adjust/fix/filter/edit to improve this at all or do i chalk it up and try again at the next show? The venue was very small so i think that was an issue also.

You'll have to have an audio editing program, like Sound Forge, Cool Edit, etc. With programs like this, you can lower the gain/volume of the recording. I've heard of a program called Audacity (which is free) that might be able to do that as well. Google it. Good luck.

By "Levels High" do you mean clipped not just volume?
Also if it's clipped is it part of the show(s) or all the way through?

You can tidy up & disguise but .... either way a pain.
Bit by bit declipping is a long task ...
Automated declipping (as in DC6) may be successful but needs a sympathetic ear.

Your easiest way out of this is for your next recording make sure you get yourself a battery box and record via "line in".

Cheers
