Help with recording evps
« Thread started on: Dec 12th, 2008, 10:09am »
I just bought a digital voice recorder with the intent on trying to capture evps. I will be buying an external microphone for it in the near future as well. My question is, would you recommend using sp or hq for recording? Being new to the possible investigation field, any help or advice you could offer would be appreciated.

i do have some advice for you...
one thing i have noticed about this page is that not nearly as many people reply and try to help...
hello, Im Travis, one thing you need to make sure you do, is if you are going to investigate doing an EVP session, if the structure you are in, has the ability to carry a voice well thru the environment is to make sure you deplete the ability to contaminate your recording..
thus as... if you and a partner are going to evp up a room, dont have 18 people in the house walking around talking and investigating at the same time..
set up rotations.. let a min. amount of people in at a time, to diminish the chance of washing out, or questionable sounds..
also, make sure that if you are doing an evp session that only 1 and i stress only 1 person attempts to talk on the recording.. there is nothing more annoying than trying to distinguish three or more voices...
also always have a back up, and always bring more battery's..
try to also get a recorder that will jack stright into a USB for direct download. this keeps you from jacking with tape recodrings, or getting a slow or fast recorded message.
find one that will hold hours of info rather than min.
a good evp session is not 15 min. in a scary room, more like 2 hours in any room.
