several times i'll import a music clip and the waveforms are crushed at the top. of course, i can turn the gain down, but the tops are still crushed (flat tops) even though now not as loud. the clips don't usually sound too distorted, but sometimes i can tell. just thought i would finally ask about this one. have any of you experienced this?
thanks for helping out a bonehead!

Typically recorded music is compressed and normalized so the peaks stay high...when you import you can select all your music clips before editing....use the gain command (search in your keyboard shortcuts for gain and assign it a keyboard shortcut if you'd like) and lower it by 6 to 10db....when you edit, the loudness and distortion shouldn't be there.
