Need help removing digital distortion from a sound clip

Hi, I have a short, just a few seconds of a volume swell guitar part. It is old, I can't replicate it, and there is a little digital clipping/distortion in it. It is very quiet, but it is in a part of a song that doesn't have much going on, so you notice it.

Would someone be willing to run this through X-noise or something similar to get rid of it, or fix it in some other way? My skills aren't good enough to get rid of the clipping. Ill drop 10 bucks in your paypal account if it works, and you send it back to me as a wav file to [email protected]

Thanks, I appreciate it ahead of time.

Thanks, kYd, for your effort.

I'm not sure if I was clear on what I needed. I like how the sound file sounds, there is just a bit of digital distortion (like 4-5 clicks or pops). I need someone to run it through X Noise or something similar to get rid of those clicks.

Any takers?

Thanks again.

does this one do it for you?

swell2 by mesa sounds "cleaned".


you'll need to attenuate 17,33 dB to correctly paste to the original.

I did a swiss-knife cut in the spectral display, found 5 glitches.
It's similar what a declicker would do.
I had to normalize else the display would show nothing.

you may want to lowpass the whole thing at ~11k, guitar rarely wants higher spectral components, and further at ~18k there is some garbage anyway.
