fixing brickwalled track?

I did a multitrack of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey with George Garzone and Brad Barr sitting in. I pulled 15 tracks and was using two MOTU 896's. Somehow I forgot to switch 2 channels to mic from line. This was the Rhodes piano a main part of this trio. So sometimes it's fine but when he's hammering on it it does sound crunchy. The waveforms are flat on top and bottom. It was not clipping on the meters and you cannot monitor each track individually while tracking.

Does anyone know a trick to smoothing out the brickwalled crunch on this track? this might be used on a DVD (then again

I did have a pair of KM184's onstage and can build arounf this but obviously it's not preffered. I have not gotten to listen to the entire 2.5 hours but there seems to be a fair amound of material that is not distorted.

By the way. I'm running digital performer 3 and have no plug ins on this setup. Though I have access to a PC with wavelab and alot of Waves and TC stuff on it.

You can replace it, not use it, or realize that it will sound like that, there is no way to undo it at this stage..
