Analog Vs. Digital Voice Recorders

On January 23, 2014, in Guides, by Manny Hishmeh

During investigations voice recording is a must when doing EVPS.  There are two different recorders that you can use during an EVP.  An Analog voice recorder is an old school version of a recorder that uses miniature tapes that you can stop, rewind, and play back a recording on.  I personally find these a lot easier to use.  The main reason for their use, is that they are simple and convenient to use during an investigation. The buttons are much easier to navigate and when there is no more room on one side of the tape you can just flip it over.

A digital voice recorder is the newer version and they are alot smaller and more compact.  However the buttons are much more difficult to navigate in the dark.  It may sometimes be a hassle when you are quickly trying to do a recording, however there is a lot more space on these devices then the analog version.  You can also easily upload recordings from a digital to a computer then you can with an analog one.
