A lot of you have asked how I am recording my silent sounds. It’s actually much simpler than I imagined. When I first decided to see if I could pick up the sounds, which I speculated I was experiencing, based on my research, I assumed I would need a specialized microphone, capable of picking up ultrasound, which I would then have to convert to the audible spectrum, in order to hear.
I ordered some expensive equipment and was disappointed with the results. I was only able to pick up exactly what I was already hearing with my ultrasound detector app, which reports ultrasonic events and translates the sound into an audible frequency. It wasn’t a total waste of time though, I was able to confirm that, 24/7, when I am at home, my parents’ house, my boyfriend’s house or within a certain range of any of my family’s cars, I am bombarded with low frequency, relatively low intensity ultrasound (10 to 100 decibels) between 17.5 and 23 khz.
My early experiments reinforced my theory that the technology being used is based on a 1992 patent for a “silent sound” device, which uses an ultrasonic projector to send sounds to ordinary speakers, which transmit subliminal messages to the target. I am not a scientist and I do not fully understand the mechanisms behind this psychotronic sorcery but it occurred to me that perhaps, since the sounds emanate from ordinary speakers, I should be looking for an ordinary signal.
I returned my expensive new toys and ordered a $20 metal microphone, a $15 metal lavalier microphone and 3 more plastic lavalier mics, which only cost $6 on Amazon.
The first item to arrive was the metal omnidirectional condenser microphone. It was larger than I had thought it would be, since I had searched “mini microphone”, after seeing videos by “Lookout fa Charlie”, on YouTube. In the videos I saw, he had picked up some interesting sounds and what were clearly voices, by placing a lavalier microphone inside of his ears and mouth. The metal microphone was too big to do either but I decided to place it up to my ear and low and behold, picked up voices and strange electronic beats, which I surmised were likely the sounds I had read about, which are crafted to elicit a desired emotional state, based on EEGs taken by a supercomputer.
Knowing that the signal emanated from speakers and electronics around the house, I decided to try recording directly from the speaker. All I picked up were the weird electronic beats, albeit very loudly. Conversion of the sound into voices must occur at the skull.
The next day, the other microphones arrived and I tried to replicate Charlie’s experiments. With the metal lavalier microphone, I was able to pick up what sounded like voices but I could not understand them. With the plastic microphones, I picked up nothing.
I downloaded an opensource audio editing program called Audacity and found even more voices when I amplified the recordings and filtered out background noise. It has a very user friendly graphic interface and there are tons on online tutorials. I found that, when amplified, I could find voices in the recordings from every microphone I tried, though nothing intelligible from the plastic ones, no matter how hard I worked to clean them up.
Since the metal in the microphones is clearly the key to picking up the voices, I decided to experiment with various modifications, to see if I could get better results if I increased the conductivity. I also jerry-rigged metal echo chambers and parabolic microphones.
While the parabolic microphones and echo chambers worked, they didn’t make a marked difference. Predictably, I had the most success with windscreens made from aluminum and copper. I was able to pick up the voices equally well with condenser and dynamic vocal microphones but the lavalier microphones fell short no matter how they were modified.
I decided to take my experiments to the next level, crafting bizarre looking microphone windscreens from highly conductive materials and even adding a yagi antenna to some of my creations.
Most conductive metals – based on International Annealed Copper Standard
- Silver – 105%
- Copper – 100%
- Gold – 70%
- Aluminum – 61%
- Brass – 28%
- Zinc – 27%
- Nickel – 22%
- Iron – 17%
- Tin – 15%
- Phosphor Bronze – 15%
Unless you’re Rush Limbaugh, a gold or silver microphone may be hard to come by but copper, aluminum and brass are everywhere.
The materials I used were easy to come by and most of them were obtained for free. When my neighborhood had curbside pickup, I grabbed all of the old televisions I could find, knowing they contain an abundance of copper. I also picked up discarded aluminum building materials, door knobs, old car parts and TV antennas. I already had some yagi antennas, which I use with my Alfa wifi adapter, to pick up distant wifi signals, in my study of cyber security, in an ongoing attempt to understand and put an end to my problem with hackers.
The only things that cost me any money, other than the microphones themselves, were the scrap copper I purchased on Amazon, for less than $20, a wokshop light, which I got on clearance at Home Depot, for $8, along with about $15 of plumbing and electrical fittings and 6 oz of epoxy, which cost me $15
I got better results close to speakers, so now I do my recordings with the television, computer speakers and a couple of bluetooth speakers nearby, at full volume.
My early recordings were made with an audio recorder app on a cellphone or with a microphone connected to a small voice recorder but I soon learned that recording on a computer, in stereo, directly from Audacity, yielded better results.
As my windscreens became more elaborate and I cultivated my audio engineering skills, the quality of my recordings improved dramatically. Another day, I will write an article detailing my amplification and cleanup process but the most useful effects (from the drop-down effects menu) are amplify, noise reduction and compressor (usually with a ratio of 10:1 and based on peaks checked). I do the amplification and noise reduction incrementally. Sometimes I also decrease the tempo, to make the voices more intelligible. I save the recordings as 24 bit .wav files, though I am unable to upload the recordings to YouTube with that sound quality.
I encourage anyone experiencing silent sound or V2K to try making their own recordings. It is a simple process, if you have the right equipment. Only once the world believes our experiences are real, can we ever hope to put an end to it.
