Digital Audio Recorder – Panasonic RR-DR60

While there are many types of audio recorders, analog and digital, the one that seems to be considered the most prolific at capturing EVPs is the Panasonic RR-DR60.  While this recorder captures a large quantity of EVPs, the quality is low.  Haunted Truth Paranormal has two of these recorders and has captured some very interesting EVPs with them. 

While at Fort Mifflin, I was using an Olympus digital recorder and John was using the Panasonic RR-DR60.  We were in the Casemate where Grant, from Ghost Hunters, saw the face of a man through the window.  This Casemate had been hidden for decades and was only recently uncovered soon before the Ghost Hunter Team did their investigation. 

There is a story that the spirit of a man that was held in this Casemate was a political prisoner. At the time that John and I were investigating, we were the ONLY people in the Casemate and I asked this spirit, “now that the Casemate had people walking through it, do you like the company or do the people annoy you?”  I then asked, “How were you treated?”  Neither John nor I heard any response to these questions with our ears.  On review of the recorders, my Olympus recorder did not have any responses to the questions, but John’s Panasonic RR-DR60 had the following responses:

1) Me – “now that the Casemate had people walking through it, do you like the company or do the people annoy you?” 

     Response – “I Like The Company.”

2) Me – “How were you treated?”

     Response – “Good.”

These specific responses to my questions that were captured on the Panasonic RR-DR60 seem to be too compelling to be a coincidence or  electro-magnetic interference.

    Interesting. First of all this came up in my search regarding the recorder. But when I read it, you mentioned my all time favorite place FORT MIFFLIN! I sometimes volunteer there. Anyway, I digress. I had to weigh in when it comes to this recorder. I have been researching this recorder for about 4 years now. Here is an article I wrote that may explain more.

    In addition to the article I wrote (I haven’t read the whole thing in a while so this next point might be in there) These recorders were built with a voice recognition chip. After all they were supposed to be used for dictation. So that means that the little noise could be changed into a word. If you shuffle your feet it might turn it into a word. I have done experiments regarding this and it is true. This recorder is selling for $1300 on ebay right now. You have to question the work that you are doing with the equipment.

    To weigh in on the other side if anyone knows about EVP’s and Fort Mifflin it is me. I have gotten quite a few there (with a properly shielded new recorder of course) and I have even done the lecture there a few times where I present them. I know it’s entirely possible you got responses to your questions but would just want to make sure the work you are doing has all it’s bases covered. I hope you understand what I’m trying to say. I would just stay away from this recorder. Just saying.
