Voices and sounds that do not come out on the tape recorder

Posted by pinellaspascoparanormal on November 13, 2012 at 9:15 PM

   We all get EVPS from time to time. The recorder can hear the things that we can not hear and records them all the time. But what about the things that we hear with our own ears, that the recorder does not seem to capture? I have had about four occasions when myself and several other people clearly heard something, but yet the recorder did not catch it. A few  times it was a voice as loud and clear as day, that we all heard, yet the recorder never picked it up. Another time it was an animal growl and grunt out n the woods that was so loud it startled us twice and yet the recorder never caught it at all. This makes no sense. The recorders are so sensitive that they can't miss something that loud and that audible to us, or can they?

 There are some possibilities though. What if at times the things we think we are hearing with our physical ears are not really being perceived by our ears but by some psychic sense of hearing? A  recorder is a machine, not a sentient being that can perceive any psychic impressions. Is it possible that under certain circumstances a sound or a voice can be projected at us psychically?

  For this to be the case, in our woods experience that night, then we would  all had to have been on the same wave length, at the time to perceive this sound. Now since the event in the woods was so sudden and took us by surprise, while we were walking and chatting amongst ourselves, we were not really tuned in to our surroundings in the same way. Three of us were walking a bit ahead and chatting and the other three of us were behind and having our own conversation, yet we all heard the animal sounds that night. We all stopped dead in our tracks and we all fell quiet.The animal sounds were so loud, that they gave us worry that some large animal was nearby and we were unwelcome in it's territory. We decided to hasten our departure for this reason. The recorders were running because we had hoped to catch some Bigfoot calls and wood knocking responses earlier. The grunts and growls sounded like they could have been made by a boar or even a bear.

  When we got home we decided to get on line and listen to both boar and bear calls to see if we could identify the animal making the sounds. We could not agree on whether it was a boar or a bear and wanted to know the animals in that area for future reference and caution if need be. When we went to our recorder to get the sound bite, it was not there. You could hear us talking about the sound and reacting on the recording  but not the animal sound itself. It was as if the recorder caught everything "but"  those loud animal sounds, that we had heard twice in five minutes time. one thing we noted at the scene was how the woods suddenly went completely quiet during the time we heard this animal sound. You could not hear the crickets, or the crunch of any footfalls in the dry leaves in the brush. The animal seemed to move in the woodline along with us but it made no sounds moving through that dry brush. We had been out in the bruish just about ten minutes before and you could hear the constant crunch of our footsteps, and so did the recorder. Now as we walked in the sand silently this thing shuld have been making all kinds of crunching sounds as it moved through that brush. It moved silently and all we heard was it's vocalizations. We talked about that weird fact as we walked home.

  On another occasion three of my team members distinctly and clearly heard a male voice speak out loud during aninvestigation, yet that voice was also not on the tape recorder. I am very curious to hear some others thoughts on why and how this phenomenon happens. Why are these sounds that are so loud and clear to us, missed by these very sensitive recorders that have the capability of hearing more than we do?  This absence of the things we have heard with our own ears that fail to come out  on our recorders,really perplexes us and opens up a whole new group of questions in our heads.What do you think? Leave your comments here.

Great site! I know exactly what you mean as I have had many of these same experiences with digital recorders. While doing a recording session in my house, my sister will lay her recorder just a few feet away from mine, and we will leave the room. (We use the same make/model recorder and always use fresh batteries) On playback of these recordings, sometimes her recorder will pick up a voice (usually a very loud and clear one) that mine will not (or visa-versa). This would astound us knowing that they were recording at the exact same time in the same location, just a few feet apart from eachother. After many of these happenings, we finally came to the conclusion that the message given was intended for the owner of that particular recorder for a particular reason. It was intended for your ears only. I believe the spirits choose YOU, which could possibly explain why someone hears a voice with their ear in a room, and the other person does not. Why two people, who are in the same area, do not BOTH see "the shadow person". I've had certain people come to my house many many times and have never been touched, heard or seen anything, and then someone else comes over for the first time, and gets touched, or hears a voice. It seems that the spirits (in my house anyway) choose who they want to reveal themselves to and who they don't. They're kinda picky. Evps I can always assure to someone who wants to have a paranormal experience, as they seem to gather and have much to say whenever we have company. However I always let people know I can't 'promise" that they'll see or hear anything, as the spirits have a mind of their own, free will, and usually do not perform on que. Children's voices that my recorder picks up are always loud and clear (I have never heard a whispering child) as I believe that children naturally have a very strong energy that stays with them after death. I read your post about the "robot" voices and I know exactly what you mean, and I have never trusted these voices either. They seem to always talk in plurality, like there's more than one, talking at the same time, saying the same things in unison. I lived with a haunting for 8 years before I ever attempted spirit communication in my house, and to date I have hundreds of evp files. I DO have a question for you that has perplexed me. (It seems the longer I live this, the more questions come about)........Since some of these voices imprint on the recorder as being "right there", and others are very "tunnel-like" in sound, does it mean that the one you heard "right there" is closer to you (physically) than the one who sounds very far away? I get a mixture of voices on my recorder, several spirits talking at the same time, their voices over-lapping, some very strong, some very hollow in sound, some sound like they're miles away. I don't know much about the speed of sound (especially when it comes to 2 different dimensions) Is there a way to determine the spirits that are "right there in the room" opposed to spirits that may be on the 2nd floor of my house, or even outside. (outside of the physical walls of the house) Sorry if this sounds like a confusing question, but I get such a variance of spirit voices (in distance of sound) that I've often wondered about this. Is there a way to measure the physical distance between the recorder and the energy source, or is simply just all in the amount of energy in the spirit itself, that determines how loudly they can project their voice? (2 spirits, both 2 feet away from the recorder, one sounds very loud and clear "right there", and the other sounds miles away) i hope this makes sense. Lol.....I would appreciate any thoughts on this, seeing that you have been studying EVP's much longer than I have. Please feel free to view my website. Thank you very much!!

Rona, I have worked with EVP since 1974 and I can answer some of your questions but I would be writing here forever. If you want you can call me and tell me your questions again and I will try to answer some of them. My number is on the HOME page of this site at the top in the header. Laurie

Hello! I think that since spirits are some form of energy and since you didn't hear the voice yourself, using your ears-I think the spirit didn't create a vibration in in the air, so the microphone can pick it up, instead, I think it directly printed the message on your recorder, because it is electronic and because the spirit is electromagnetic and it could do that easily. Just an opinion. Great site, and glad to have found it!

About the topic of the article, I think that entities choose to show themselves or not, choose to be recorded or not, and maybe they create these paradoxes as a signature-that they are entities, that they exist and they can communicate. And most of all, that they can defy the rules that we live by.

Mary I think you may be right on this. There are no rules for them and they do not adhere to ours.

Hi, i moved into a new build proprerty with my son 24 and 12v yrs old daughter 18 months ago. after a week of moving in my daughter was sat at the dining room table doing her homework and shouted my quickly into the kitchen. she told me that she herd a grow, from the side of her, i told her to ignore it and it was probably her imagination.
My dad died 2 weeks before i moved into my new home and i was woken up out of the blue and saw my dads face on the wall, i blinked and it disappeared, i left it at that, my eldest lad who is 31 came round to see me last night and went in the kitchen to make a drink and as he opened the kitchen door we heard a loud growl i asked him did you hear that and he said it came from the kitchen next to the dining table where my daughter heard it, my tv then turned itself on standby. a couple of weeks ago i was in bed and a man walked past my bedroom window twice all i saw was a shadow, then i kept getting 3 knocks on my bedroom wall i told it to stop and it did, i HAVE RECENTLY FOUND OUT MY HOME WAS BUILT IN A DISABLED SCHOOL .it is really freaking me out

Wow Diane, it sounds like you may have a spirit around but I would not worry. If you ignore the activity it usually peters out.

Myself and other Bigfoot researchers, have come to the conclusion, that sometimes sounds we hear are telepathic not out loud audio. A few times, we've heard a sound or voice, that some of our group didn't hear, and later isn't on audio recordings either. I've almost given up on using digital audio recorders. Half the time, the Forest People turn them off or drain the batteries.
Wait until you experience having a Bigfoot walking 25-75 feet away from you, in daylight, you hear branches and leaves crunching, can feel the footfalls through your feet, and can't SEE the Bigfoot! When they want, they can move silently. They find our bafflement amusing.
Not all Bigfoot, have all the psychic abilities attributed to them. Just like us, some have more ability.
hope this is useful.

This is going to be controversial but I'm sceptical of EVPs. Unless you can isolate the electronics from an environment full of broadcast electro-magnetic radiation, you can't guarantee that what is recorded is anything more than a stray broadcast. Now, if observers witness an auditory phenomenon and it is also captured on a recording device, then I think you have a genuine EVP. As for observers witnessing the phenomenon but the phenomenon not being captured by a recording device. This suggests that the phenomenon works directly on the brains of the observer. When two or more observers corroborate the phenomenon, then you have something very interesting.

No Jim you are entitled to your opinion. It is good to be skeptical to a point. My goals are not so much the same as yours as I am not a ghost hunter out to prove spirits exist or that they can communicate. i did my first EVPS on an analog recorder back in 1974, so I am not stranger to all of the variables. EVP is my specialty and I have countless hours in working with them and gathering this communication. Not everything people think is an evp is an evp, I agree with you on that one. In my experience with things that are heard by several people and do not come out on the recording, are rare but it does happen. I believe it is a psychic projection that the spirit does to us that causes us to hear the voice or sound or whatever. Since spirits do communicate telepathically it is no surprise. It sure is fascinating when it happens though, don't you think?

Hello there I am a 14 year old boy and I was absoutely petrified when this happened to me. I just lay there still shocked and just called my sister to come to my room. Also the weird thing about this is that there was no air vent as there was none also I wasn't near a window the lights were switched off and I was on My phone facing forward but a little diagonal then suddenly out of thin air a good sprinkle of water just hit my face. Please do you have any other ideas on how this might of happened. Thank you.
