EVPMaker is an experimental software for the generation of acoustic “raw material” for recordings EVP. For this purpose, the program divides any recording of speech into short segments and then plays them back continuously in randomly order. The resulting “gibberish” still sounds like speech, but can’t be understood anymore, and is therefore suited as background noise for EVP recordings. Of course, the program can also be used to generate special acoustical or musical effects.

ParanormalSocieties.com was founded with the intent of creating a comprehensive directory of America’s Paranormal Societies. As someone who has had experiences that can only be attributed to the paranormal, I believe it is important that those in need of assistance be able to find someone in their area quickly. Paranormal Societies are largely non-profit, labor-of-love endeavors, and accordingly do not have budgets for advertising or yellow pages listings.
