How to remove natural reverb from a recording
I've had a search through the forum for an answer and couldn't find one so here goes...
I've been supplied a spoken audio sample to use for a telephone application but it has been recorded in a naturally reverb "live" room (actually sounds a bit like a bathroom). This becomes more noticable when the audio is uploaded on to the system.
Is there a way to remove the reverb or at least deaden the audio to make it sound more flat? I'm looking for an EQ/filter/compression technique rather than a specific piece of software or plugin although I have SONAR 3 SE and SoundForge 6 to use on this.
