Sound track faint green 'ghosting' effect?

The above is on my timeline and comes from my Zoom H4N. Little question: what is the sort of ghosting on the timeline image, the faint green? Can I somehow use it..? Thanks!

Choose Final Cut Pro > Preferences, and click Editing.

Select the “Show reference waveforms” checkbox.

It was checked so I unchecked it, nothing happened so exited FCPX, relaunch and the faint green went away. Rechecked, nothing happened, exited FCPX, relaunch and back to faint green wave form as in the image. I have the audio on 12 all the time but nothing audible once the cursor has gone beyond the solid green waveform. I'm missing something...?

Have you tried using Audio Analysis under Audio Enhancements and then enable Loudness and turn up the Uniformity?

Thanks for the response. I followed your suggestion and in the area beyond the solid light green there is now something but the sound is so faint and tainted as to be unusable. It sounds as if it could have been induced from nearby wires. Good to know about this feature of FCPX for the future.

I still don't see the point of the faint green sound waves...

Yesterday the sound engineer sort of admitted that he may have touched something inadvertently so I don't think whatever was touched will be touched again.

This particular sound source would have been good to have but fortunately I can get by without it.

Thanks again for the suggestion.

You're welcome. Glad to give you something that might help in the future even if this time It sounds like a recording problem.
