Paranormal Investigation Equipment
"...I often get asked about the equipment and applications that I use on TV and in the course of my paranormal investigations. The main questions people often ask me are where can I purchase them from? or how do I use them? As I have amassed so much equipment and used so many different applications over the years, I wanted to share the sources with you and help spread the word to support my friends and their businesses. I have therefore listed my favourite creators, manufacturers and distributors of paranormal equipment on this page, and will soon be adding some useful info about applications"

EchoVox is an ITC application that uses multiple banks of phonetic sounds to generate intelligent responses.
Spirits are said to be able to manipulate these electronic sound forms to form full words and even sentences thereby communicating with the user.
Using the application is fairly easy and I prefer to use both the shuffle and random function when sweeping.
The application uses 6 channels of random phonetic banks and also 4 sound banks. The responses are therefore randomly generated but somehow this application produces incredible results during any investigation.
ParaTek is an Ai ITC system that provides 4 layers of analysis and deciphering before it selects a word to announce. It is not a random word generator and uses Ai technology to completely operate the application.
It uses a simple on and off function with no radio interference, no audio banks and requires no technical knowledge to use.
It does not use speech recognition to falsely reply and the ParaTek app only selects words based on changes in certain environmental conditions.
Necrophonic is an ITC app used for spirit communication and EVP research. The app uses 8 sound banks to produce words and sounds in response to the users direct questions.
The audio itself is made up of phonemes, partial words, reverse audio, foreign languages, and other parts of speech that can help spirits communicate.
Besides some basic phonetic sounds such as na, no, da, do, di, ma, may, etc. there are no real words of phrases contained in the banks. These sounds banks play in a similar way to that of my other app "Spiritus Ghost Box" but instead of 4 sound banks Necrophonic has 8 active sound banks.
This app does contain Echo and Reverb audio effects which many investigators claim to be the best effects to apply to ITC sessions.
"Paranormal investigations should be fluid, responsive and reactive, therefore the use and application of paranormal equipment during any investigation, should also be flexible, and respond to the situation and type of investigation, your location and ultimately intention. I personally adapt to each case once I know what I am dealing with. However, in some situations, where prior evidence, knowledge or experiences are limited, it is vital to just go with your experience and gut instinct. Paranormal Equipment is designed to either identify or communicate with spiritual entities. The devices available today are plentiful and many do the same jobs and can cost anything from a few pounds to thousands. Always do your research before you buy and shop around."
