PRINCE I have just read your posts. Let me say something regarding the video you watched. The spectators didn't here anything Smile Chris asked them if they heard anything as part of his patter and the spectator answered yes. This was great as they were really in the zone. This shows how much you can get the spectators hooked and they believe they heard noises when they didn't. Any noises you can here is background noise. So when the recording was played back it was an even bigger shock for them as there was an actual voice on the recording on their phone.

I highly recommend EVP.

Ordered this after so many posts ~ Thought performing it the night will get a better reaction ~

Yea ~ the feeling is tense after the effect so might as well put some levitation magic afterwards ? Maybe the ghost plot can be used as things float .

Finally had the chance to give this a proper try out and thought I would post my findings and such for anyone who needs a few tips and help and such (and just general feeback on it).

Firstly I was VERY impressed with the box when it arrived and the hook up works great although there was an issue with it not being as diverse as I had hoped. You can't move things around becuase of how short the cables are (i.e. the design looks to be done so units are on the same side of a person but would have been nice to be able to split where each unit is work on the body with a slightly longer cable). As someone previously mentioned for those who have a bigger or leaner body this can also pose as a problem.

Other than that though the device seems to work great although I did have some issues with the switch. The first was how oud the switch is. This can be covered with the use of a thick jacket but in a room or environment which is quiet there's a chance something can be heard (I always go by the assumption if I can hear it they might also be able to hear it). The second issue, was the response time from the switch where there would be a slight delay or just nothing would happen. I decided to try and give the button a long press but all this did was launch some app on my iphone (Iphone 5s). This random app launching (it looked like it was a voice command app of some kind - I'm not a fan of Iphone so am not entirely sure what it was) was not really a big issue though, just have to ensure you don't press the switch and hold it down for too long. Also realised the button not being responsive was down to how it is worn on the body - you need to make sure you can get a good press on the switch and if you can it will work every time.

I had a lot of fun recording the audio and ensuring it didn't sound too much like me so this involved hours of working with audio software to get it just right as well as sounding creepy. For those who want to know how I did mine, please get in touch and I will be happy to upload a guide onto the Facebook group Alan has set up, if he is good with that. I will also upload the audio files I use in case anyone wishes to use them as pre-made samples.

To record the audio... I tried recording using a whisper and this did NOT work too well especially after I edited the audio. If you are not going to edit the audio whispering as well as not recording too close to the mic you are using is key to making it sound good. If you will edit the audio then you need the ausio to be clear. Speak clearly, close to the mic and whisper but do it loudly (you can change the volume level when performing anyway). It's all about experimenting which is why it took me hours to get it right and have the audio exactly how I wanted it. The software I used was a free PC based software (this way anyone can use it without forking out money for software), I don't own an apple mac so am not able to provide any instructions for editing ausio on there - sorry.

I recorded two audio clips: I did the first as instructed in the instructional video with a 5-8 second gap and did a second that had a 15 second gap. This gave me the option to be able to hit the button once on the unit and stick to a timeframe within which to ask questions or I can use the 8 second file which meant I would need to use the stop/play method after each question. Really depends on the people you perform for and how involved they will get because if you know exactly what you will say between questions and the spectators will all follow your lead and just listen to what you do it's quite easy to be able to use a set audio clip where you won't need to pause/play after each question.

Overall, very, very happy with this purchase it worked a treat - excellent work Alan. Also, if there is anything in this post that could be considered 'revealing' please let me know and I will edit it out immediately.

I was considering buying a pebble watch just yesterday but had decided not to - seems I have new incentive to get one now, lol. I think I must have overlooked that part in the instructions as I don't own one so will have a look at them again today.

Alan - Couldn't find the group on Facebook so am assuming it's a hidden group we have to get an invite to from you? How do we send you proof of purchase? Will a selfie with the product to your inbox work, lol. Smile

Hi Alan

I am new to this forum and pretty much new to magic, done a few card tricks for friends and bought a few tricks now again and never managed to really get any decent results, in your professional opinion will an absolute novice be able to pull this off.

Cheers

Hey guys! Quick question: Do you need your own smartphone to perform this effect? Or can you be walking around without a phone?
Thanks.
