I recently recorded solo piano track in Studio One 3 Professional  and I kept hearing strange noise and even banging. I finally realized that just the act of pressing the sustain pedal was creating the noise.
This is ruining the track I recorded and wanted to know what is going on and how this can be fixed.

For starters, this has nothing to do with studio one. It has to do with whatever is generating your piano sound, whether that's a sampler like Kontakt, or a virutal piano plugin, or the onboard sounds of a workstation keyboard. Many of these sample the sound of a real piano pedal being depressed and released to give a more realistic recording. It would be in the settings of whatever piano software you're using. Are you recording audio from a workstation keyboard/sampler, or are you using a midi controller for a virtual instrument?
