of this experiment is to evaluate the effect binaural
synchronization has on the quality and quantity of EVP.
Monroe Institute Hemi-Sync® technology will be used.1
See the attached article, The Monroe Way.

You have been
assigned a tracking number, and all of your results will be
recorded by that number rather than by your name until after
the results have been evaluated.
You are all
being asked to use the same equipment and technique. If you
have not indicated that you already have a Sony ICD-B26
digital voice recorder that you will use, one will be mailed
to you in a separate package.
It is assumed that:
You have an audio
patch cable and know how to connect a recorder to your
computer and how to record the audio into the computer.
You have an audio
management program and know how to use it for audio
capture, editing and saving.
You have a audio CD
player that you can use for these sessions.
You have a set of
headphones that you can use.
If this is not the case, please contact us before beginning the
A USB thumb
drive has been included in the kit. You are asked to use the
memory device as a means of returning your recordings to the
AA-EVP. The SanDisk memory stick has a folder named
Documents which contains the folders:
mp3 and wav formats of the Hemi-Sync CDs A and B
twenty folders for storing the results of twenty sessions.
The other folders are empty
A “U3” icon will appear in the bottom-right tray. Click on that and
click on the “Eject” button before removing the memory stick
from you computer. A window will tell you when it is okay.
Two 36 minute audio CDs have been included. One is marked
with a large “A” and one with a large “B.” These are the
sound files containing the Hemi-Sync tones and what you will
be listening to for the EVP recording sessions.
A notepad has been included and you are asked to keep notes
related to this experiment. When you listen to the resulting
audio files, you will be asked to note what you hear and how
well possible EVP agree with what was expected, and provide
a brief description of how you feel about the circumstances.
A set of instructions have been included, which explain the
twenty recording sessions during which you will make three
one-minute recordings for EVP. Since Hemi-Sync leads your
level of awareness to a deeply relaxed state, and the
sessions are nearly forty minutes long, it is recommended
that you conduct only one session in a six hour period. You
are asked to complete all twenty session in three months,
and to do this, you will need to average slightly more than
three sessions every two weeks.
Please do not
listen to Hemi-Sync while driving or during activity that
requires your full attention. Just as with meditation, be
sure that you are fully alert after using Hemi-Sync.
Copy the 2008 Hemi-Sync Trials Results folder from the
memory stick to your computer. You will use the folders to
store session recordings.
Find a comfortable location where you are not likely to be
disturbed. A relaxed sitting position with a pillow to
support your head and a throw to keep your body comfortable
is recommended. You will want to be able to hold or pick up
the recorder and turn it on to the record mode three times
while you are very relaxed. You may also want to make
written notes. (If you record verbal notes for future
transcription, please use a second recorder.)
If you prefer, you can use the files in the memory stick to play
the sessions through an mp3 player or directly from your
computer. The native format is the one on the CD, so it is
first choice. The objective is to have the highest quality
playback, but the second objective is to have all session
played on the same device.
Test the equipment and make sure that your recorder, player and
headset are all functioning correctly. The two CDs are
identical except one has an added set of Hemi-Sync
frequencies intended to help you function as a mental
medium. Listen to one of them all the way through so that
you will know what to expect. Take advantage of this session
to set the levels in your player and in the recorder. The
alert tones in the CDs are a little softer than expected so
you will want to turn up the volume in the player so that
you will not miss them.
Each CD is arranged as:
0:00 -- 10:00
Intro surf and up to working level
Record now sound
Stop recording sound
Return to working level
Record now sound
21:00 Stop recording sound
Return to working level
30:00 Record now sound
31:00 Stop recording sound
Brief return to working level
34:00 -- 36:13
Return to C1 verbally guided
36:14 -- 36:15
Before beginning a session, think of three questions you
will ask and/or who you wish to contact. Begin a fresh page
in the notebook with:
expect to begin
brief comment about your sense of wellbeing, energy
level and attitude about the session.
space between each question for further comment, write
what you will ask or say to the etheric communicators.
the number in the recorder that will be associated with
the three recordings for this session.
It is important to use questions that are meaningful to you so as
to draw on your personal energy and focus. If you have a
loved one in the etheric, you could ask for a personal
message. Think of the kind of questions you have had success
receiving results for in the past. The questions should be
interesting to your communicator, as well. For instance,
experience has shown that asking the same question session
after session is met with fewer and fewer responses and
maybe even complaints. The entities are pretty good at
telling you what they have seen in your home, so you could
put something on a table and ask what it is (a teddy bear or
plant would be better than a rock). You could also ask them
to tell you what you are wearing.
Make yourself comfortable so that your head is supported and
there are no pinch points that will cut off circulation to
an arm or leg. Your body will cool down during the session,
so you may want to have a throw nearby. The Hemi-Sync tones
will “take” you to a meditative level of consciousness. All
you have to do is relax and enjoy the trip. If you have an
itch, scratch it. If you need to reach for the throw, do so.
The tones will gently take you back to level.
Think about your question. Visualize who it is that you wish to
hear from. Desire to record the response you are hoping for.
When you hear the “record now sound” turn on the audio
recorder and say out loud your question or request so that
it will be recorded, and then remain quiet until you hear
the “stop recording sound.” When you do hear the tone, turn
off the recorder and allow the tones to take you back to
level. Be brief so that there is time for the EVP.
Begin thinking about your next question or request and repeat this
process for two more record periods. After the third period,
relax and allow the narrator to count you back to full
consciousness. It is a good idea to express your
appreciation for your communicators and tell them that you
would like their help next time, as well.
twenty sessions beginning with the CD marked “A” and the
next with the one marked “B” and then alternate between the
two so that every other session will be with CD “A,” ending
with CD “B” for session twenty.
Each session has three recording periods for a total of sixty
Copy the recordings into your computer and save them as a
Windows PCM (*.wav) file (or Apple equivalent). If you are
using Audacity, then “Export as a wav” file. The recorder
will hold more than 60 minutes, so please save the files in
the recorder, as well. Be sure to lock the recorder when you
Label the files in your computer as EVP Folder > 2008 Hemi-Sync
Trials folder and then:
1--CD A period 1
1--CD A period 2
1--CD A period 3
2--CD B period 1
and so on for all 20 sessions and 60 recording periods for a total
of 60 files.
During analysis, you will be looking for EVP, how many per one
minute session and what you think of their relevance to your
question. Please make a record of the results in the
provided notebook. This is not a contest for the most EVP or
most meaningful responses. The objective is for you to
decide if an EVP has been recorded using the same standard
as you have used in the past.
After finishing the last (20th) session, please
answer the following questions in the provided notebooks:
Please describe your
playback setup and environment.
Did you record EVP
during the Hemi-Sync sessions?
If so, explain your
view of the results.
Did you notice any
difference between the Hemi-Sync sessions and past
experience in your usual quantity and quality of EVP?
If so, please explain.
Please pick one of the

my ability to record EVP between the Hemi-Sync
sessions and my normal sessions.
I saw a slight
change in my ability to record EVP, but the
Hemi-Sync did not seem to be the reason.
considerable change in my ability to record EVP when
I used Hemi-Sync.
True or False: I now
prefer using Hemi-Sync for my EVP sessions.
True or False: I would
recommend Hemi-Sync for anyone wanting to improve their
ability to record EVP.
How would you change
the protocol for this kind of experiment?
Please provide a
statement of how you feel/felt about this experiment. Do
you see value in this sort of effort? Did you benefit by
Please save the sixty sound files into the USB memory stick
provided in the kit, and return that and the audio recorder,
the two CDs and note pad to the AA-EVP. It is important that
the recorder is returned so that future experiments may be
conducted using the same hardware.
Thank you very much for participating in this experiment. We will
give you a report about our findings as soon as we can
finish the data reduction.
