Well it sounds to me like it was recorded with limiting, meaning the limiter in the record deck was on (unless you have added compression in post already).  Not a bad setting to have on, but to avoid it you need to set your levels lower.  There is not an easy way to get rid of that limiter once it is written to the track.  Do you know anything about compression/limiting in general?

Definetly only using Bass Roll Off on the DR-2D
The CA pre-amp and mics were my first time using them.

I know some on the limiting and stuff but no practical experience

Hmm... I'm not entirely sure then.  I'm pretty same sure that I'm hearing limiting, but afaik the CA stuff doesn't have any sort of built in limiting

I did have to level out parts since i was messing with the levels from the preamp.
But that was a matter of highlighting a section in Audacity and changing Ampitude till it was in line with the rest of the wave file.
