OK, what do you all think of this version? (I shortened it so you don't have to download this long file):

Re: Audio improvement help

That's better than I was expecting to hear in terms of the tonality of her voice. There is a little background noise there but if you had just a tiny bit of music (or actuality) underneath her whilst she is speaking, I reckon you might just get away with it as it is.

All is not lost.

Another recording of the same person, ideally in the same location, might help us come up with appropriate EQ to make her sound "right." Of course that assumes that everyone involved feels that "reference" recording sounds acceptable.

As it is now, we're just guessing at how her voice ought to sound, and any EQ we apply (based on that guess) might end up making the background noise worse. Personally, I would like to understand the EQ situation first, before I decide how to approach the NR process.

This is going to be a very tough track, because sometimes the talent is really projecting her voice to the group, and other times she trails off and is almost mumbling to herself. I don't know if you will ever get the track clean enough so that the mumbled parts are useable.
