Improving vocals from overhead speakers

Greetings -

I’m brand new here and this seems like a great place for advice, which I am hoping to get here.

I’m using Premiere Pro / Audition to tweak the audio in my video.

I recorded a speaking event on my video camera, and the room was using overhead ceiling speakers.

I’m hoping for a few ideas or suggestions on how to improve the audio quality.

I am not hoping for miracles, but to improve the overall quality would be great!

Any and all ideas are appreciated.

Hey Thanatos! Can you share the audio?

It’s got an echo to the room which I am trying to reduce.

Here’s a snippet of the event. It was a “roast” for a friend.
It was simple in nature… and I understand if it can’t be completely fixed.

Oh… I already did a noise print process on it.


PS - I tried to do an upload but was informed that New Users can’t upload files.
I guess I have to wait a day or so before I can.

In the meantime I will provide more details about the environment -

The event was recorded with a consumer level Canon video recorder.
I only use it for random events, and it’s not my living. :wink:

The recorder was very receptive to the different noises and background chatter.

The room was a large dining hall with overhead speakers. The audio quality is ok… but I was hoping to do more, if it’s possible. I was trying to work with the compression and EQ levels, but couldn’t achieve what I was hoping for.

As soon, as I can upload, I will… I will try later on tonight and see what happens.

Thanks is a good way to upload clips
