Arh, Konstantins Raudive I remember back in my days when I was an associate for the society for pychical research I read up on EVP and made a few tape recordings,interesting stuff for sure, I do tend to beleive you can imagine you are heating voices as sitting in a dark room you can convince yourself of a presence,scare yourself.So I am a little more skeptical these day's.

We should always be skeptical, but yet, not too skeptical. I think one must be careful not to go from being carefully skeptical to simply dismissive. I think an agnostic sort of approach works best for these sorts of things. Personally, I wish more serious, well-funded research would be done on things of this nature.

Of course, many such purported phenomena appear to be very difficult to study -- assuming they exist at all.

I suppose the best example would be the whole UFO phenemonon.

In fact, today is "World UFO Day".

Just a word of warning about 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.



Brad isn't being snippy, but genuinely helpful IMO. If you want to discuss actual EVP then that is the place, not on a magic forum. We're just here for the card tricks and the hype.

Just had mine arrive and wanted to throw in some comments:

Generally, I'm impressed.

My BIG concern is that whilst most of the equipment is great, one part looks like something you'd get from a dollar store (the thing that normally goes in your ear). I can't see this lasting many performances or much travel. I have a feeling just taking it on/off is enough to do damage. Caution is advised on the dvd just when setting the thing up, but I really can't see this lasting and what happens when it breaks? Another $100 in cold blood to replace something that costs $2?

I'd love to have also seen some downloadable voices (perhaps of pro actors) that you can just grab and go! Maybe this is something that can be added to the learning section.

Hi Alan,

What's wrong with the recording device on the iphone?

Regarding using the pebble watch as a silent trigger for EVP, do you have to touch the buttons on the watch to play/pause the recording each time or can you do it with a wrist motion?

Just received this today & my two penneth...

WHAT A WASTE OF PACKAGING!!! The packaging is double the size needed, why do small things have to come in big boxed??? Grrr just send it in bubble wrap, save on packaging & postage costs...

Other than that, I'm loving the device, just finished the video and now gonna have a play.

Did Mr Rorrison mention somewhere in this thread that he was working on an app for this, has this happened?

Just read whole thread, was a right toughy to get to some actual reviews. I have learnt one thing though; there's some right fruit loops in this forum!

Mr Rorrison. You accepted my facebook friend ages ago but you have ignored all 3 of my requests to join the facebook group re EVP which I have purchased.

Have I done something to offend you (as we have never spoken I don't see how?)

Please reply.

Yeah well maybe now but very poor customer service. There's a FB page for people who have purchased EVP.
I have purchased & can prove.
I requested Alan Rorrisons FB friend which he accepted.
I then asked him 3 times politely if I could be added to the FB group.
He read each message (as facebook displays)
And ignored...

Feel I have a right to be disgruntled & shall but nothing more from this chap.

He’s only ever here when he’s selling something. Just like many other members, sadly.

I didn't realize there was a FB page either. Looking through the forum feed, looks like you message Alan with a selfie of the product and he'll give access. I guess I'll try that and see what happens.

Not at all. I'm not selling anything just now and I'm here. I do tend to drop in and have a peek here daily and I'm only a pm away.


The Facebook group is there but I've not popped in to it in a while. I'm saddly a little busy with a 10 week old baby.


The app was there but I just didn't have time to update it however you do get Everything you need with the product. Enjoy it folks
