In the field of paranormal investigation, there are many terms, that every paranormal investigator “wannabe” should learn. One of such terms is “EVP” – it’s quite popular term. In this article, you will learn what EVP is, and how to record it – I have recorder many EVP’s in my life, so I don’t think it’s difficult.
EVP stands for Electronic Voice Phenomena. It’s a phenomena of recording voices of ghosts and spirits on digital recorders. In the old days, when there was no digital recorders at all, there were classic tape recorders. This is when the phenomena were first being discovered. It’s quite simple – a recorder is capable of recording disembodied human voices in haunted places – and there is no physical source for such voices.
There are three levels of Electronic Voice Phenomena. A, B and C. Class A is the best quality of the recording – each word can be picked up, and the whole message is easily understood. Class B is something between best and worse quality. Some words can be picked up, some cannot. Finally, class C is the worse recording. Almost nothing can be picked up.
Paranormal Investigators consider EVP’s as one of the physical proofs for paranormal activities. They often use recorders to catch EVP when investigating haunted places. If you would like to catch Electronic Voice Phenomena for yourself, you can do this with no problems.
First, you need a haunted place to investigate – which is obvious, right? Then, you need to get yourself tape recorder, or digital recorder. When using a tape recorder, make sure you do not use old tapes – the tape must be new and used for the first time – otherwise, it might generate voices that are not really paranormal.
Then, go to haunted place, and start recording. As some questions “into the air” – for example ask if there’s anyone here, if there’s someone who would like to rely a message etc. Generally it’s a simple one-side conversation. You’re asking questions, waiting few seconds, then asking another question. Then, you need to go back to your “lab” – or something with computer and sound edit software. Load the files you’ve recorder and listen to them carefully second by second. Really, otherwise you might miss something. You might not record anything, or you might record quite few interesting things.
