Hi cam

If you have recorded the meeting and can hardly hear what the guy is saying then it has been recorded with the sound at low level.
there is no program that i know of the will enhance the sound, try to use a program like sound forge 9 this may do something as it has certain plugins and filters that may help.
It can make the recording louder but this will also make the background noise louder and thus may not produce the results that you require.
in future try to have the mic or recorder closer to the person or persons.

Here is a link to a trial version

Hope this helps :)

Thanks for your reply Shannianni,

I was fooling around with Adobe Audition 3 and I got it to sound better, but the filter I used added a echoy sound to the person talking. Have any recommendations on how to fix that?

Best regards,
Cam

hi cam

if you have added an echo to the sound then the only way to rid it wiuld be to start again with the lowered sound, and using the same filter tweek the output until the echo is minimal.
if you have a copy i will have a go for you, i mix and remix alot for several dj only companys and several radio stations.

Try using the Freeware audio editor Goldwave - it's got a load of useful tools for audio manipulation.

There's no substitute for well recorded, healthy signal, but you might be able to filter out some of the rubbish so the signal can be boosted without boosting too much of the "mud" with it.

You could also try using a device/software know as an expander - basically it will raise the level of the wanted signal and lower it during the pauses.

The only real way is to re-record the interview, with a decent mic, pre-amp, pop-filter, souncard.......
