Well a stairwell has its own characteristic echo just being a stairwell. Is the dialog
understandable? If not, you may need to rerecord possible hang curtains below and
above the talent to block some reflected sound. You may try some EQ killing some
low end.

NOTE: if this is a public building this also is a fire escape and you may need to
record off hours for safety.

Try the tricks mentioned in this thread. It works wonders.

EQ is your friend here. Use the Vegas Track EQ to add some fullness and reduce the other effects of the stairwell. I wrote a tutorial on this subject which you can find on the DMN.

Essentially, try boosting around 300 Hz, finding the "room" by sweeping the freqs and then cutting that, and putting a high pass at 100 and lowpass around 10k (called shelfs in Track EQ).

thanks everyone .

JPF - I will try your suggestion since the subject can not be re-recorded, so want to try and fix what I have.
