The reason there is "distortion" in the first place, is because too much information has been lost in the conversion to MP3 (at least I'm guessing this is what you're describing). Therefore cutting anything else out, would actually do more damage. There is no way to put the frequencies back that were lost during encoding. This is an unfortunate consequence of encoding MP3s at low bit-rates. Your best bet is to do the encoding process over again, this time with a higher bit-rate. Sorry, but there is no magic bullet for this one.Le_Singe
I don't know anything about audio editing but isn't there some kind of frequency where the audio starts to get distorted? If there is, why can't you just lower the frequency?

I've searched everywhere for the best solution to remove distortion from a low encoded MP3. Everyone always says that there is no way to fix it, not even the equalizer. Is there some kind of software that uses "artificial intelligence" to remove distortion? Sorry, I don't know much about music editing.
