Using Adobe Audition 3 to remove room noise

I have a wav recording that was recorded in a room with hard walls and I would like if possible to remove at least some of the "echo" from the recording.  It's not real bad "echo" just  a bit of it .

Is there an "easy" way to remove the echo using one of Audition's presets?

I also have sound booth cs4

You can try using Effect -> Reverb -> Convolution reverb... to remove echo:
Create a new track using the convolution reverb effect and play it against the old track, with phase inverted (search help for Invert a waveform about that).

What settings you will use and if this will be successful or not, depends on the settings that you will enter at Convolution reverb filter and if you're lucky enough to match the echo. There is no success guarantee!

Good luck.
