How to get rid of echo?

I have a clip that was shot with a wired handheld mic inside of a building. I noticed there is some echo.

How do I get rid of it using Adobe Audition 1.5?

Thank you,
Lisa

The standard answer is that if you have recorded echo, you can't get rid of it.

But sometimes you can reduce it significantly:

some gentle gating can reduce it. I've used hardware units to remove background music pretty much completely by running 2 units in series. auditon should be able to do at least as much.

you can set a gate to remove everything between words, but generally thats too far because when it opens again, you'll here some revereb in the spoken words. so best policy is to back off about 50% from there and live with a littlke bit... or ADR :(

The suspension of disbelief filter fixes everything...

But seriously - ADRing it is really the only way to completely get rid of it, though depending on how bad it is some tweaking will help.

I've found the only way to really know is play with the EQ settings and "see" what happens.

There used to be a hardware device made out of unobtanium that worked pretty well, but the US Government put it in that warehouse next to the engine that runs on water.

Hmm, maybe it's time to get that engine back out.

Regards,

Ty Ford

Ah yes, Voorhees, NJ! South Jersey - thats Jersey Devil Territory!
I try to stay north of the Driscoll Bridge... Though my girlfriend tells me down in your neck of the woods - Ocean City MD is nice.
