Marching band and live band concerts come out distorted
I recorded my daughter in a marching band and recorded a concert on the mini dv tape, but being so loud, the tape is distorted and music is intermittent. Don't know if there's a way to get the clarity back. I admit, the bass was loud and my heart was pounding, but are there any ways to fix this problem? Thanks. Terry

I'm sorry to say that there isn't a way to make bad audio good. You can sometimes make it a little better but it sounds like yours is distorted beyond help.
Your built-in microphone automatically senses how hard to "listen". Generally, being closer is better but in your case the signal was so loud that your audio sensors "clipped" the sound to protect your circuits. That means there is no signal in those gaps that could even be corrected.
The best you can do is see if someone else had a successful recording.

This can be due to a faulty PINCH ROLLER as it can chew if the bearing are worn out . If so this must be replaced, Also a faulty mechanism, links , alignment can make the tape to move out of the track and get chewed.
finally the tensioner of the tape which is tension band can be faulty and so it will allow the tape to be loose to get chewed down.
I would go to a professional camera store like a Ritz and see if you can find splicing tape, yes they sell such a thing but it may be a bit hard to find, if you find it youll have to pick a point on either side of the damaged tape and cut it as cleanly as possible and apply the splicing tape, when played thecut out part will of course be missing and the tape may jump over that point a little but it should work.
Maybe your blaming the wrong people? Maybe your camcorder has a problem? with the power off, try pushing the eject button and the power button down together for a few seconds, but push down the eject button before the power. If that does not work, you will need to have the camcorder service and ask the servicer to please be kind to the tape as it is important. Good Luck
