Audio disaster...how to fix?

Long story short....taped a school play. In order to reduce the reverb of the gym..I used 2 uhf mics on stage (no output was available on the mixer). Mics were recorded 1 to left channel, and 1 to right channel. The left channel has the "best" audio. I split the stereo to 2 mono tracks and now how the "best" channel's audio on both left and right tracks. Now my question...

What is the quickest way to "ride" the volume of the audio (it varies all over the place due to diff in speaking parts and singing parts). I know in CS5 I can "ride" the faders in real time, but Id like a faster way. Such as putting a "limiter" on the audio and not let it peak higher than zero db. Normalizing the audio would make it worse. Just looking for suggestions....

Thanks

For not letting it peak higher than zero db, set max peak to zero in the audio gain menu. (In windows, right click on the audio track, click "audio gain" in the box menu that appears, then select your choice in the next menu).

Thanks folks....think I saved it.

I made two mono tracks out of the stereo wav file. Took the channel with "less" reverb on it and pasted it on both l & r channels. Then used the multiband compressor and some eq...to reduce the low frequency reverb rumble....sounds pretty good now. At least I learned what "not" to do next time. ha

Happy Holidays to all of you,
Jeff
