Sound correction - FCPX. What do you use?

Hi, I'm trying to edit together 3 sound sources, camera mic and 2 sound recorders. The wedding was very chaotic and I arrived 3 mins before the groom (bride's fault, not mine!) so I had no time to check sound on the recorders and had to set them on auto. It was a fairly windy day and the ceremony was outside. So the sound is not perfect but useable. I use FCPX so I was wondering what other users use to improve the sound, remove noise and match it up. I realise there are no miracles but it'd be good to know which filters to try out as there are so many and I really don't have time to try them all out.
Thanks!

Compressor, Limiter and Graphic equalisers get me 90% of what I need in FCPX. Occasionally I may need to add some noise reduction.

By any chance did you try the built-in options in the Inspector > Audio? (the Inspector is in the upper right-hand corner)

The Voice Enhance works quite well but the wind noise can be a tough one.

Andrew, FYI if you use a Zoom H1 you can buy a furry for it. I have a foam one and an actual furry. That doesn't help you now, I know.

Jeff, thanks, I'll need to buy a furry.

John, I have found that the Voice enhance makes the voices sound a bit reedy or tinny. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Dave, thanks, I'll try them out.
