Not so complicated really. Sonic foundry has a plug in that can restore
clipped peaks. The missing information is simply the peak of the
waveform and not complex at all. You can interpolate the clipped portion
of the waveform by looking at the angles before and after the clip taking
the duration of the clip into account. Obviously if you have clipped
entire waves and not just the peaks, then nothing is going to help you,
but many times it's possible to get a good recreation of the original

This is not to say the plugin is inexpensive or super easy to use, but
it's certainly doable without LCARS. :)
