The sound of the room is very "Big" almost like I have put a hall effect on it. is there a way to do the opposite? make a big room sound small? I guess in hindsight maybe I should have used a directional shotgun mic instead of the Omni directional wireless mic? Problem now is to try and fix after the fact. any help would be appreciated. I edit with the Adobe CC suite so those are the programs I have access to.

Hello Dan,

Unfortunately, a big room sounds like a big room and the large number of reflective surfaces makes it worse. Shotguns would probably not help that much because they are omni directional at middle and low frequencies. Even a CMC641 Schoeps can't fight that much indirect sound because it's not a mic problem you have, it's a location problem.

RX3's dereverb might help a bit, but it probably won't make it sound as good as you want.
