Audio Clean up help

Hi guys, hoping for a bit of help here.

I have a short audio clip (attached) where a man a woman are leaving a message to camera for the bride and groom at a wedding.

There is a band playing in the background so its quite difficult to make out what they are saying.

I have Adobe CS3 so have soundbooth, but I'm by no means an audio expert.

Can anyone advise on what to do to clean up the audio so that you hear lass of the band behind the camer and more of the people talking in front of the camera?



ps - message to mods - I wasnt sure whether to post this in the audio section or the wedding video section, so apologies in advance.

James I could hear it and if the video is full face on, that'll help. Maybe put a 1KH boost at 2-3db through it, and roll a bit of the bass out at 150Hz and below. HTH Cheers.

Premiere has a "multiband compressor" in the Audio Effects folder.....this has helped me in many situations. Play with it until you get where you need to be.
