How to remove reverbs from phone's audio record?

Hello Forum

I recorded a speech with my smart phone. The mono record was taken in a large hall with 1000 people. Unfortunately, the record has a lot of reverbs. I tried the “leveller” and “compressor” to increase the presenter’s voice against background effects but I do not get rid of the reverb. What can I do? I appreciate your advice.


IMO de-reverb isn’t possible, [ you’re flogging a dead horse ].

Cutting out all the frequencies below 200Hz with the equalizer may improve comprehensibility a little bit, but not much.
