That's one more than me
You're correct! I had a theory on why some the YouTube personalities get so many EVP's everytime they turn on a recorder. At first, it was frustrating, then I watched and listened closer. First, they're handling the device while recording allowing for accidental thumb slips (hence my title) and they're recording at the lowest bit rate which allows any slight sound to be a false positive. To test this, I set my recorder to 5kbps, and ever so slightly grazed my thumb on the side of the recorder. I have a louder version that I did after I posted this. If I didn't know any better I would have thought it was an EVP.
Now that I feel better about my own hit and miss with EVP's I'll not do anything like this to you guys again.
Main noob points:
1. Use a higher bit rate while recording. Sure you won't be able to record at long but it's a more "honest" sound.
2. Don't handle your device while recording. Tag it if you do.
3. Listen to the advice of those more experienced than yourself.
Anybody else want to add to this list?
Here's the louder one.
