which audio plugin??

I could probably figure this out by playing, but I trust that I'll find a quicker answer here. I'm using vegas 8 and working on a demo. I have an audio track pulled from a ceremony with the pastor speaking. It's very clean, but to sound more natural, I left in some of the ambient sound from another mic. This gives a bit of an echo or resonance. I would like to remove that just a bit to make the track a little more solid and flat since I'm putting it under other video clips for this demo. What is the best way or the best plug in to use for what I'm trying to accomplish.

Thanks in advance !

I can think of two ways of doing this and neither require a plug-in.

The first is to simply lower the volume of the ambient track until you get it to where it sounds good.
The second is to try "sliding" the ambient track to reduce the echo.
I find this easier to do with "Quantize to Frames" turned off as you're "sliding" it in less than 1-frame increments.
1 frame is 0.033 sec. and that's a lot of audio, hence the reason for disabling it.
Start the video playing, click the ambient track to select it and start "sliding" it by pressing the 1 or 3 keys (on the numeric keypad). Set as desired.
Hope this helps.

you might also try leaving the ambient track where it is in the mix, EQing and compressing it in the mix for more natural follow. Our ears are pretty sensitive, and slipping the timing might cause some oddities, including occasional phase issues. Be sure to test your mix in mono, just for giggles, although it shouldn' be an issue at all.
