    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 menue with lots of tabs is sho

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

Denoising with Spectral Subtraction

If you're doing direct voice ITC, you'll probably be wanting denoise the signals your capturing. The goal of denoising is to remove noise from a voice signal, or equivalently enhance the non-noise, or speech that may be embedded in a hardware noise source. Of all of the methods for denoising a signal, spectral subtraction is the oldest, and most well-known. As the term, spectral, would imply, it involves converting a time-based audio stream into a frequency-based (spectral) vector using the

Direct Voice

After developing and experimenting with the phonetic typewriter, which is a noise-gated stream of user-supplied speech-like sound, I noticed that at times, it seemed like there was a mix of the expected audio and something else. This gave me reason to believe that there could be voices directly from the noise itself. Direct voice, as it were, corresponds to extracting the voices from the noise with no extra audio added in. This method is indeed the original method of spirit communication /

Early video of my phonetic typewriter (January 2019)

Before I make a video showing the phonetic typewriter with my new Python noise gate, here's a video of my original phonetic typewriter using the Maximus noise gate in FL Studio from January 2019. Originally, the stream of audio was alternating between 150 ms speech and 150 ms silence. The gate opened for 100 ms when it detected a high sample. The audio stream I used was always the same recording, starting from the beginning.

Noise Gating (aka the Phonetic Typewriter)

Noise gates are an integral part of most ITC systems. They are a subset of something called expanders, whose job is to expand the dynamic range of a certain ranges of the signal. Below a gate, noise is attenuated. Above the gate, the signal is amplified to achieve more clarity.  If you listen to the raw sound of a typical entropy / noise source, it's sounds pretty boring, as if there's nothing interesting or "paranormal" going on. However, when you expand or noise gate the signal, you empha

The Phonetic Typewriter

When I first started in ITC, I followed the strategies of the tried and true like software Ghost Boxes, but realized I could do better, a lot better... The phonetic typewriter is one of the most popular methods in use by EVP researchers today. However, other ITC researchers may not use that term. They might instead call it a Ghost Box or a Spirit Box. The general concept is that short clips of regular human speech (forward, reverse, from radio, etc.) or similar sounds are used as a base sig

A transition from astral projector to ITC inventor

For many years, I've seen myself as one of those special people who can visit the spirit realms at night during my dreams. So special, that frankly, no one, besides myself, really cares. I could tell you any of the adventures I've had and you'd either think I was going crazy or I was already there.  You see, it's one thing to report to what I'm seeing and hearing and it's another to see it and hear it yourself. Years ago, I dreamt about researchers somehow tapping into my brain while I was
