Actually, your microphone isn't really necessary for EVP. If you start your device or devices in the record
plugged in, you'll get better, clearer results. The important thing is that the recording is taking place, that electromagnetic pulses are being
committed to a storage media (e.g. ferrous tape or whatever).
As long as the recording is in progress, the EVP can make itself known AT THE POINT OF RECORDING
(i.e., at the tape head or whatever).
at the microphone, but at the media itself, see?
Now, one device with a microphone is handy for actually recording yourself
asking questions to which the EVP may answer, but you're going to
pick up a lot of extraneous noise, as well, from which it makes it hard as hell
to extract your EVP.
So.... Use one recording device with a microphone, but synch it
to 1 or more (preferably more) recording devices without
So you're going to end up with one noisy audio tape and another tape (or tapes) that are blissfully silent — except
, let's hope, for some
See, the mike-less devices are going to be recording at near zero-background-noise. If there's an EVP hit, it'll stand out like a sore thumb.
