I've found the problem......seems as if it is the player that I am using. VLC media player seems to be introducing distortion as when the clip is played in WMP I do not hear the clipping problem. Thanks.
Glad that you found the culprit.
I was going to suggest that you watch the VU Meters (in actuality, they are not really VU Meters, but act rather like them) in the Audio Mixer. The Meters are pretty accurate at picking up high levels and clipping.
Thanks for reporting what the issue was and happy editing,
Hey thanks Bill and for future references how would I access the Mixer section of Elements? Thanks

Besides the Meters, it has Pan controls per Track, plus allows one to dynamically change Volume, or Balance with Track Keyframes.
This ARTICLE will give you a bit more background on that.
Hope that helps, and good luck,
Thank you Bill....The mixer element brings a touch of an evironment to my video editing that I am very comfortable working with and that is digital audio. Thanks again, I really appreciate your help.
You are most welcome.
I use the Audio Mixer a lot, and like the ability to apply Track Keyframes. However, as pointed out in the article, those are Track Keyframes, and osme users get confused by them, as when they change Clips on the Track, those Keyframes do not change, though the Clip has.
Unless the Volume, or Gain, of a Clip is just way off, I will edit, and when finished, use the Audio Mixer to fine-tune my Audio as a last step.
Good luck, and happy editing,
