Are you saying that your impression is that the computer program's basic curve is too " bright"? Even symphonic distant mike recording still place the recording pair quite a bit closer than the listening location of the audience. The air itself will disapate high frequencies more than bass frequencies let alone the absorption caused by rows of fellow audience members. Popular music recordings using common close mikeing techniques can be brutal. My ongoing issue with the push a button and the computer will fix the problem concept is a lack of integration with the users personal expectations and real world experiences. What the client likes in the most basic terms. I mean the computer must be right, right.
