I did in fact try running it through The Levelator and it was just as bad, but different. It pulled up the machine noise from the HVAC and the voices from the room next door to the point that they were way too distracting. Next time I will do a better job of mic’ing the guests as that is the primary reason some of the voices were much softer.

I did throw a peak limiter on it, next time if I cannot use The Levelator, I will try to configure the software compressor and limiter better to tighten up the range as much as I can without pulling in too much of the undesirable sound.
