    Basic setup in Audacity for ITC

    By Andres Ramos

    Audacity is a perfect tool for ITC. If you use it consequently like I am doing since years for ITC you don't want to miss it anymore. To get Audacity you first need to download it here. After installation you can make some basic setups I will show you now and that are optimized for ITC. I configured Audacity mainly along with its usage, thus everything I found out as best practice is empirically found.   First go to Edit->Preferences:   Another menu with lots of tabs

Clear Voice!!

Very amazing result that came up more as a byproduct today. I was tinkering around with WavePad, not because I intended to do a serious ITC session but just to learn more about WavePad itself. As I wrote in my main blog I discontinued working with Audacity for certain reasons. I was checking the amazing video export function in WavePad where you can export an audio track in real time animation with it's sound. As I checked the result I suddenly heared a crystal clear voice. In fact it was s

Graphite - Oil experiments

Another thing I wanted to try out was the sound of carbon particles immersed in oil. The oild adds better insulation of the carbon particles to the compound and I expected the sound to be more calm. So I prepared another glass vessel, drilled holes for thumbtack electrodes I glued in, filled it with graphite powder and added Ballistol oil, a high quality oil that is not gummying. In fact the sound was more steady an calm. With 40V DC bias at the cell I got a nice smooth noise signal with a

Analysis of Ron's Audio

I analyzed the audio track of the video that Ron made. Very interesting stuff! I compred it to the source file he made and the voices he gained in his video are NOT on the original file. Thus they were realtime voices manifesting during the session he made. Absolutely stunning. I extracted 11 exports from the audio track. The voice was pretty clear but the conent was confusing. Thus I put it here without my interpretation and everyone might try what he/she is going to perceive. Export#

Thumbtack CCR

In my ongoing research to manufacture my own CCRs I again experimented with epoxy glue mixed with graphite. This time I wanted to achieve lower resistance values and I mixed in a lot of graphite. I placed the 'blob' between two thumbtacks I used as electrodes. The resistance value is around 13 KOhm now. I placed this new component into my circuit and recorded the signal. A lot of crackling noise was in and some fairly good pk modulation. Here is the raw audio:Sample Thumbta

Using Carbon Sound in Live Sessions

Ron did a great job by using the audio file I generated from the "Graphite Goo" circuit (graphite poweder immersed in demineralized water) for a live ITC session. returned it into stereo, reversed one channel and then let it run in the background while asking questions. He made a video from it and I extracted the audio track from it to upload it here. Ron's audio: Ron Graphite-Goo-Reversed.mp3 I will analyse the audio this evening and put the results here into the blog Thank you v

Singing In The Moment - Falling Like Meteors

Over time I have noticed when I begin to be "taken over" by an unknown force of creativity. First it was one song, then another, then another, and on it went for years. And years. Now it's 16 or so more years later and I figured I would share some of these 50+ "songs". Not sure why, as these posts are certain to evoke more criticism than anything else. Yet, I challenge the status quo. If I am afraid of showing myself as I am behind closed doors, then why worry about even attempting to be on

Thoughts Are Dimensions

What if every thought we have is in another dimension. And each time we think a thought we create multiple copies. Multiple universes. Infinite universes. Every time we think the SAME thought we are creating many copies of that universe. And once there are enough copies in enough universes they begin to resonate off each other. They start to layer, one upon another. Like the reflections in a singer's microphone feeding back into the speaker. The most dominant thoughts win. The most repeatedly

Machine Learning / AI for ITC: A Quick Explanation of Stream 8

My First Forays into Direct Continuous Voice As mentioned previously in my blog, I evolved to direct voice after I noticed that the phonetic samples were getting slightly modified by spirit voices. I reasoned that it should be possible to extract voices directly from a stream of electronically created noise (e.g., radio static). I don’t know the full history of getting continuous (not just occasional) voices from noise, but it turned out that around the time I started this venture a fe

Digital Medium - "Over Los Angeles"

At first I didn't quite fit in to my choir class in the eleventh grade. Reading notes was hard, I had already learned to tune to music by ear. After all, I had grown up thinking that was how music was played - by ear. At first I sang bass. Try as I could, I had a hard time projecting low notes. They just didn't seem to fit my vocal range. Yet I couldn't seem to reach the high notes sang by the tenors. Oh how I longed to sing as high as the tenors! Most rock singers sing very high, and I wou

Digital Medium - Music From Heaven "Grow"

There are two passions in my life. ..music and work with "spirit" (paranormal). Music was first. By the age of 5 you could hear me singing to records on a Fisher Price record player. They were mostly Christian records, Christian gospel...and some were  recordings like the Disney movies Bambi and The Fox and The Hound.  As children my sister and I sang in church, once we even  performed a duet on stage. It was a joy to sing at the top of my lungs. It was one of the few things I enjoyed about

Theories about how spirits connect with our devices

As we observe paranormal activity in our ITC devices and software, the grand question is how is this happening? Zero-point energy In quantum mechanics, the vacuum is not actually empty. It is filled with particle-antiparticle pairs that perpetually go in and out of existence. The lifetime, t, of these pairs is governed by the Heisenberg uncertainty principle: Et >/2. Despite my careless description of a physical concept, it should be noted, no one really knows the density of

The voice of the trees

Recently I saw a documentary about the british actress Judy Dench. What I did not know was that besides of being the boss of James Bond as "M" in many JB movies, Judy is doing a lot of private research about the nature, life and social behaviour of trees. She is collaborating with lots of scientists helping her to understand how trees are are growing, the social relationships they are building up with other trees, plants and fungus and how they communicate. In that documentary I saw how a biolog

Introduction to Hardware Noise sources

Pre-built Electronics The first noise sources I worked with were generated by pre-made electronics: the USB input audio interface turned up to max gain (+46 dB) and a software-defined radio tuned to no radio station/source. Both of these sources produce nearly white noise. White noise means that all of the frequencies are the same magnitude. Both of these sources are probably suitable for noise-gate applications like the phonetic keyboard. However, in order to derive voice directly fro

Formant Detection and Synthesis

Voice compression algorithms utilize the common patterns of human speech to detect (at one end) and synthesize (on the other end) voice communication. Among the common structures of speech is the glottal pulse, which is the buzzing "ah" sound that forms the structure for all vowels and certain voiced consonants (like z, v, and r). White noise is the other base sound for forming phonemes like "s", "sh", and "t". Shaping these two foundational sounds are formants, which are the various resonances

NTC Images by reflection of structures in water

Another very interesting way to obtain spirit images is the use of structure reflection in moving water. Again the moving water waves on the surface of the lake are the driving energy. The water is reflecting imgages from everything that surrounds the lake, mostly these are trees. In winter, the bare twigs and sticks of a tree are giving a perfect structure to be worked upon by the distorting forces of the water. When you take single pictures or even better a small movie you are disas

Spirit images in light reflected by moving water

1. Basic principles of used technique This was the first experiment I did with NTC 2 years ago. I noticed that the light of the sun, reflected by the tiny waves on the surface of a lake gave some kind of "light pumping" process. I focused the digital camera in my smartphone on this sport of light that was permanently oscillating between bright light and darkness due to the motion of the waves. After taking a short movie of some seconds I disassembled the movie into single frames by using th

Denoising with Machine Learning

Up until the last few years, the only main techniques for removing noise from signals were based on spectral subtraction. Machine learning (ML) has now become a powerful alternative. It takes advantage of the fact that we know what the denoised signal should roughly sound like. I have a paper on this topic here (I'll add a paper download link).  The general principle is we train the ML to convert (noise + speech) -> speech. I use a database of 140,000 seconds of "books on tape." I add ra
