Hey guys. I'm new here, but I decided to record an EVP (not my first) and I think it sounds pretty interesting actually. I'm currently in an old reconstructed house that was built in 1900 (used as a funeral home, a wedding chapel, and a bed and breakfast throughout the years).

I followed the standard procedure for EVPs (turn off electronics, fans, background noise, TVs, etc.). Although, I didn't ask any questions. I just hit record on my smartphone and let it run.I figured that if a spirit had something to say, it wouldn't need me pestering it to do so.

I compiled 3 of the more interesting bits into one file. The second snippet to me sounds kind of like someone saying "You listen to ME!" which I thought was pretty cool.

Does anyone have any other interpretations? I'm especially curious to see if anyone can make anything out of the first or third sound bytes.

Thanks! Attached File  evps3-24-14.mp3   98.37K   44 downloads

2. You're with me

3. ??everybody?? - Helen loves you

I think there is something wrong with the URL from CDS, doesnt load any page, just a google search not found message. The original file sound like noise reduction was used a bit too much, sounds mechanical and distorted

Why do a lot of EVPs sound like they were recorded underwater or made from water? That warbly "water" effect always throws me off.

I think most of that effect is from using noise reduction on the file. It helps remove background stuff but also distorts the voice. I'm no expert, but you can use equalizers and other stuff to better effect. There is a pinned thread at the top of several forums (this one too I think) about using Audacity (free program) to clean up EVP's

Wow, the Audacity stuff isn't there any more. I did a search and found it in the archives on a forum I haven't heard of..technical help   http://www.paranorma...437&hl=audacity

Cell phone voice recorders automagically apply noise reduction that gives it the sound you describe. Also over processing with noise reduction filters after the fact can also.

I used the noise reduction feature in Audacity and it made it all warbly, but it's easier to hear with less static. CDS did something to it to make it clearer, too.

Right, audacity's noise filter is notorious.

Maybe if the original file were posted before it was run through Audacity, someone can work a little magic wit hit
