I was recording an organ grinder, and unbeknownst to me the mic was too hot. The audio is blown out. I want to try and use it though. I know I can't change the fundamental fact it's blown out...but I'm editing in FCP X and I'm wondering if there are any filters that might be useful?

That is more an FCP question than an audio question.
There are several FCP forums here and on other websites where could probably have better expectation of a helpful response.

Adobe Premiere has a filter which will "round-off" the clipped peaks of an audio waveform. Dunno whether Apple has something similar.

Since it isn't exactly "lip-sync" (unless the monkey was singing?) you could possibly replace the audio with a better sample.

My signature line over on another forum is: "Recording audio without metering and monitoring is exactly like framing and focusing without looking at the viewfinder."

I totally agree with Richard. FXPX has very nice eq plugs from Logic, but other than rolling off the high end, none will deal with the distortion. iZotope RX4 has a Declipper module that can help. However, there comes a point where the signal is so trashed, it can't be recovered.
