The Power of FX Proccessing

Our last game session for our actual play was unfortunately in a room with a significant amount of reverb. I am definitely not the biggest fan of natural reverb and it can ruin a recording.

Fortunately, thanks to modern technology you apply some really cool FX to get rid of it. The audio won’t be perfect but it will sound a damn sight better than before. Here’s an example.

Original Recording
Compressor, Denoiser, Declipper, Equalizing, Dynamics
All the above with additional Dereverb
All the above with background music for fill.

Which do you think sounds best? Would you rather have the natural reverb to keep a more natural sound or keep the voice as dry as possible?
