sure thing pal.....
Don't hold it.....If at all possible, leave it, and come back for it.....Questions are fine and dandy, but it's hard to rule out the human element.
The slightest movement could sound like a hurricane on your recorder. If you leave it, and come back for it (depending on location), you can rule out
your own movement, breathing or coughs.
What i do (or did) is ask a few questions up front, then let it be known that i'll be leaving the recorder and if anyone wants to speak into the red
light, go for it. I've caught ALOT of indisputable EVPs this way.
Also, don't record a 30 or 45 minute session. This is another reason to leave the recorder. You need a good 4 to 5 hours of continuous recording to
get more than a few EVPs. An hour or so may leave you empty handed.
You'll find that loading a 5 hour digital recording may take a little while. Searching through it will take a while too. I suggest you use CoolEdit,
or Adobe Audition to clip your files once you find and flag your EVPs.
Another thing. When using your audio editing software, you may find yourself wanting to "look" for EVPs a little quicker by actually looking for
visual anomalies on your files. Don't do it. This will work for you sometimes, but often times EVPs do not register as a 'visual' wave difference,
and instead will be found in noise that appears to be 'flat'. You'll have to listen to the entire recording.
And get yourself some nice headphones.
Hope this helps.
