Right now, I'm recording a song with my acoustic guitar using Audacity, and while the song went fine, at one point near the end, I noticed my guitar getting distorted.

For some more info: I'm not recording directly from my acoustic guitar, I'm amplifying the acoustic (it has a pick-up) and recording from the amp. I haven't touched the amp settings. Also, I record all the sections of the song separately, so I end up having a lot of lanes above each other, could that be the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Wow, I can be a retard sometimes. I turned down the volume on Audacity and the distortion seems to be gone. Thanks

Yeah, your recording volume shouldn't be that loud. Lower your amp's volume. And if you have many overdubs you could use the "amplify" tool and lower the overall volume with that.
