Just a normal tape recorder will do....or even a digital one. Go to www.worlditc.org for all the information you will need.If you are sceptical about this and are willing to try it prepare to have all your sceptical beliefs severely challenged......! 623780[/snapback] Thx for the link Bogeyman I just recorded something some minutes ago, I have a mixer with reasonable good and loud preamps without much noise so I recorded something to my PC, and then modified it in cool edit, although I reduced many of the noise(not without loosing the ability to hear my own voice) I still pick strange electron...

The reason that "white noise" is preferred in EVP recordings is due to a phenomenon caled "stochastic resonance" Now, white noise is "random" noise.

In the old seances of the late 1800's and early 1900's the spirits sometimes used to have the participants sing,this provided them with noise energy with which to make contact or speak.When the spirits voices begans to fade those in the circle would either sing or start talking amongst themselves ....and again this gave reinforcement to the voices.....i think that this could have been the equivelant of white noise...or somehow connected to the same phenomenen. Source for this is "the psychic riddle" by Dr Isaac A Funk.....what a great name eh ? It was written in 1905....a great find of a book ... [More]
