Can you record EVP (paranormal) with both digital and analog? | coercs
It seems that serious EVP investigators transfer the audio to the computer to analyze there anyway, so might as well use digital. Digital recorders also don’t have the mechanical noise that analog tape recorders do, and that can improve the clarity of your recordings and eliminate the need for an external microphone. However, make sure you get a digital recorder that records at 44.1 kHz (the CD standard) and uses the WMA format (uses some data compression but it’s better quality than MP3). Most digitial voice recorders are not of this quality, so look around. The Olympus DS-2 is a good one. If you get a voice recorder that records at 8 kHz or 16 kHz with heavy data compression, the quality will be so bad that you’re sure to get nothing useful out of it.
Good luck with the EVPs. I haven’t heard any that I thought were compelling, but maybe you’ll be first to record one.
I’m sure that you could record an EVP with a tape recorder, but you may have trouble being able to hear if you have recorded an EVP without the equipment/software to cut out some of the ‘foreground’ audio to actually hear the EVP. My husband and I use a digital recorder and when we want to review a recording, we load it into the computer and use a program to isolate a certain section of recording where we may hear something we want to check out further. He filters out some of the background noise and then we are able to hear it more clearly. Then we save that section of the recording if it does include a distinguishable EVP.
