Room acoustics
Let me start by saying that I'm not a sound guy...

I'm working on an interview clip that has decent vocals but has some surrounding air noise. I sent the audio through Audition's noise reduction and pretty much eliminated all the noise. Now the acoustics of the vocals sound just a bit too much "metallic" or "echoey" as if maybe filmed in a bathroom. There's not really any echo at all, I just don't know how to describe it.

I guess my question is, what filters or effects do I need to play with the make the audio sound a little fuller or richer. They were recorded in a living room.

the problem with removing all the noise is that with AC its pretty much a broad spectrum sound . so you will also effect the voice. I'd go back to the original and try removing the AC noise enough to get it so it doesn't permeate the sound, but you haven't majorly changed the voice either. kind of a 50-50 compromise between reducing the noise and minimal voice change. also if you have plans to mix some music in that will help a lot to cover the AC noise up, especially if you have reduced it to a fairly low level.
