I have a clip with distored sound on one tiny part. Are there any suggestions on how to fix this?
Sound Forge and iZotope RX both have tools to repair distorted audio. You can download the trial versions and try it yourself or post a link to the clip (use Dropbox or other file sharing site) and I'll be glad to try as I have both.
Most NLEs, including Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro, have basic sound correction filters. For more extensive correction, you may need a dedicated audio program, like Audition.
If the distortion is clipping, which results from recording levels set too high, you are probably out of luck.
