Just an update…
Today is Day Six of my EVP experiment. Sarah Estep recorded her first clear voice on the sixth day. I have yet to review today’s recordings but I can tell you a little about what I heard reviewing Day Five’s recordings.
It is probably the standard for researchers to NOT display a “Class C” EVP or lower. What I hear would not even be classified as “C” and wouldn’t hold up in the court of EVP for sure, therefore you will not find them posted here… at least not yet. They may not be voices at all. But at least I feel like I’m making progress. If it is true that those on the other side need time to learn and adjust to communicating just as we do, then I feel good about this progress.
The two segments of my 3-17-12 EVP session that have possible light voices in the background are about one minute apart from each other and were recorded on the same digital audio recorder (I’ve been using two), the Sony PX-820. With this recorder I used the internal microphone. It is the same recorder that picked up Missouri Spirit Seekers’ best EVP catch at Friedens United Church of Christ in St. Charles, MO (those audio files are listed as EVP: Voice A, B, C, and D). The first of yesterday’s possible voice(s) is moments after the question “Can you tell me your name or anything about you?” Then shortly after asking for assistance in bringing Sarah Estep through, I asked “Is Sarah Estep available?” More possible voices followed.
My Setup for EVP Recording Sessions
Today’s EVP session was uneventful. I recorded for about 20 minutes. The transcript was very similar to day 1, with some differences in questions. The same background noises were tried and in the same order. Changes to day 2 included using an additional digital audio recorder (Sony PX-820 using the internal microphone) and running the above ceiling fan on medium for extra background noise (very soft). Because of the ceiling fan I had to use the wind shield with the Tascam Stereo Microphone used with the Tascam DR-07 digital audio recorder. I only flagged one segment from the PX-820 recording where I hear a low murmuring that stands out and seems to fade out and in for about 10 seconds, but is really soft. This was about 9 minutes into recording and was right after me asking “Was anyone able to assist in bringing in Sarah Estep?” After listening to the rest of the recording I realized that the light murmuring is most likely coming from the ceiling fan above. Even if it is not, it probably wouldn’t even be graded a Class C EVP. I plan on uploading the audio into Audacity for further review.
I am still hopeful that I will eventually record EVPs and possibly real-time spirit communication before the end of the two weeks. Yesterday I contacted Tom and Lisa Butler, directors of Association TransCommunication, and let them know of my two-week journey of daily EVP sessions. They responded with some helpful advice and encouragement.
For those who are curious, here are samples from my recordings where you can hear the white, pink, and brown noises, as well as the EVP Maker manipulating my voice for background noise.
