Got mine at last and have had a play with it for a couple of days now. I have a Samsung galaxy s4 and you have to be careful to re set the volume AFTER you plug in the speaker or the volume will be adjusted too low, some sort of safety feature to make sure we don't deafen ourselves.
I do a lot of video editing and have cyberlink power director 13 which comes bundled with audio director 5 which I have found to be great for producing the EVP files . I can change the pitch of the voice without affecting the speed, most software just speeds up the recording to make a higher pitch voice and slows it down for a deeper sounding voice. I can also change my own voice to that of a woman or one that works very well for EVP a child. I can add any number of effects and without any loss of quality I can boost the sound levels etc.
I will offer to alter your sound files if you want to use any of these features, just pm me with your email then you can send me your sound file and tell me how you want it altered, I will do it and mail the altered file back to you. I will offer this for Café members free of charge (magicians helping magicians) so if you need your EVP altering just shoot me a PM.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

I am interested in how this might be different and better that just using a simple stuffed animal recorder/player? I have done almost the exact routine as the demo using this $7 devise.


1KJ,

You have done yourself a great disservice by disclosing your method here. You could have sold your idea to your fellow magicians for perhaps somewhere in the $100 - $300 range. You would, of course, include the necessary hardware and an instructional dvd.

You could call yours EZ-EVP.

This one... I don't see the incredible effect. The first that pop up in my mind wroks perfectly and works pefectly without to buy any special gimmick because many of you already have it. Bluetooth ****-***. There is a way to do the same thing without gimmick for this reason I don't like it.

Is there a Facebook group for this effect? I see previous posts here mention to contact Alan with proof of purchase. I've messaged him on FB a few times on Facebook but haven't yet been added to a group to discuss this trick.

Has it not been set up yet?

Just a word of warning about EVP, and cemeteries as locations.

There is some belief in the paranormal investigation community that graveyards harbor mostly hostile and even parasitic entities, rather than human spirits. There are reports of encounters with aggressive black-hooded entities, which some believe to guard "portals" between this world and the afterlife -- or other dimensions, perhaps. Further, some believe that there are such things as "energy parasites" which feed on the residual energy from corpses.

I don't think EVP is a joke, nor is it (always) fake. It has a long history, and was discovered by Konstantins Raudive, in the 1960s. During his research over the years, he was reported to record over 100,000 audiotapes of EVP.

EVP is believed to be a sort of summoning act, inviting extradimensional (of which the "afterlife" would quality) entities to communicate with you. Unfortunately there is just no way to control what comes through, and I've heard some rather nasty EVP. It's not unknown for investigators to get sworn at by hostile beings.

Though most troublemaker entities are human, there is still a small possibility of contacting non-human ones.

Regardless of belief (and skepticism) I'd advise caution when dealing with EVP. It may actually be possible to contact something, have it enter your life, and not be able to easily shut that door when it becomes a problem.



Quite frankly, I think you guys are playing with fire...

So?

EVP isn't a trick. You can get intellible answers without any kind of trickery.

Don't even bother going there Crotalidae, I've tried and just get shot down everytime. Let them think what they want and let them just keep thinking that there is no such thing as paranormal - yet they are quick enough to post and comment with out having no experience or even investigated to see if anything really is out there to make such assumption, yet they have to be right because their 'opinion' always is.

I'd agree. In fact, I'd almost recommended, believe it or not, not listening to what *I* have to say.

Instead they should be asking paranormal researchers and parapsychologists.

Someone here said I was blunt. I suppose I am, so let me say this: Even the most skillful and baffling of magic is insignificant next to what one can encounter if you push far enough into the paranormal realms.

If ghost decks were real or spirit slates were real, we would be. Any que the sarcastic people and idiotic responses saying that ghost decks are real decks of cards made of cardboard - which is real unlike supposedly spirit voices. Don't bother guys, I've saved you the pathetic response. Stick to what you know about the paranormal - and that is nothing, yet you come on here going on like your an investigator like me. Oh did I mention I was one... Yes that was sarcastic - if you can't beat um join um

You do know that this is just a trick, right? Regardless of whether one believes it is /also/ a 'real' phenomena ( and I think everyone can believe what they choose on that aspect without ridicule) the people who you are haranguing on this thread are here to read about a trick that just so happens to be called EVP. You really are berating the wrong audience here, and I suspect THAT is why you are receiving the response you are. I'm not quite sure what you were hoping for.

Well if you bothered to follow and read through the whole thread, you will realise that all I tried to do in the beginning was add to the whole performance and give helpful advise of how to perform this in a more convincing way - because I actually conduct this experiment for real when investigating. But slowly started to get attacked with comments which had to try and leave me to defend.

I still stick by who ever performs this wants or should want to try and portray this is real what you captured, and you not performing this as a trick - as it would be pointless for the audience to think it's a trick. Whether they may think this anyway after, but why even give them the chance to think it's just a trick on outset - again there is no point in doing it. That's why on the actual vid demo and performed by Troy etc - it's was played as if it was real and a real EVP caught. So in the beginning me trying to give advise on how real EVP sessions are conducted etc to help with the acting and selling of you capturing a real EVP - as in this is ecactly what it would look like.

Oh right, only because you asked if I knew it was a trick - yet in my previous posts you can see I know it is, and my reasons for the posts.

It was a rhetorical question. I wasn't expecting an answer ( although I left my phone voice recorder on while asking it, just in case)

Haha excellent - if you do pick up a real EVP don't forget to post it 👍 second thoughts don't bother as they will just say you used Alan's EVP to create the real EVP

Crotalidae75,
I think your observations about EVP might find a better reception HERE.

*sighs* I just knew I'd get this sort of response. My warning was sincere. Given the nebulous nature of the phenomenon, I'd still strongly advise caution when dealing with it.

There are too many reports of coherent, meaningful phrases being recorded for me to dismiss it as mere pareidolia. To be honest, I think a lot of it really is, but I think some of may not be. It might be a big mistake to assume that a given phenomenon has a single conventional explanation.

I would also strongly advise learning about the history of EVP -- and listen to both sides of the argument, for and against a paranormal origin. Above all else, keep an open mind regarding these things.

You could start by reading about Konstantins Raudive.
