question about hypnosis

6 replies
Hey guys,

I'm interested in self hypnosis. I saw software on clickbank that helps make it easier. I've been buying general ones but personally made ones would be better. Can you recommend a good microphone that only picks up my voice as opposed to sounds around me or making it muffled.

    Thre are sound editor that can minimze the sound in the environment. I don't know one but google is your friend here.

    I have one question as well. I don't mean to hijack your thread but can hypnosis work in another language? Every hipnosis audio I found is in English and my first language is Spanish

      Hi Nick,

      I use and can recommend the Samson C01U USB Studio Condenser.

      It is a pro-grade microphone with a USB interface so you can plug it into your computer without interfacing additional hardware.

      It isn't the cheapest mic out there by a long shot but it is definitely pro grade, will last you a long, long time and can be had on ebay for a very reasonable price.

      Hope this helps.

        I've been playing with hypnosis / nlp for 15 years, and conveniently, my dad has been a sound engineer for 45 years, so I may be able to help you on this front:

        If I want to record a hypnotic trance, just for myself (quickly) I use my Sansa Clip MP3 Player. Provided the room isn't too noisy, this is quite clear. This would be great for practice... as would any digital dictaphone with a good onboard mic.

        When it gets released later this year, I will buy a Zoom H1 to record trances at decent quality wherever I go.

        It's coming out soon - so this might be a good choice!

        If you want to record trances with more post production (i.e. mix with music using audio editing software) you could get a headset with a microphone or a headset mic, and record the trance directly to your computer.

        Depending on your budget, sennheiser make some headsets with reasonable built-in mics like the sennheiser headset pc141 or pc146. I had a pc141 headset that was quite good - more than adequate for personal trances.

        If you have a good soundcard in your computer, that doesn't introduce static or a hum, you could use one of the sennheisers to record practice trances for friends. If your soundcard is low quality, a headset with a built in USB soundcard will probably give you better quality. I've used these headsets - and they sound ok.

        If you want mic higher quality vocal pickup, you could opt for a higher quality headset, for example, google: sennheiser me-3 usbmi

        Most headsets have pretty good off-axis rejection, meaning that, they record your voice loudly, whereas ambient noise from the room is very quiet.

        There are various mic's aimed at podcasters that offer reasonable sound to great sound quality, and the Samson C01U is a budget version of such, but if the room your recording in is noisy, as "large diaphragm mics" they can pick up a lot of ambient noise, so may be less suitable if the room you record in is noisy.

        With any such mic, it's important to get a shockmount, and maybe even a microphone boom arm, to enhance the quality of sound and the mic position relative to how you sit or stand. Google: "microphone arms"

        If you want great quality, and your room is quite noisy (like you live next to a train station / main road) you could consider getting a "reflexion filter"
        but, IMO, this is overkill if you're just learning hypnosis and you want to practice.

        Personally, I like using headsets, especially with long leads, because good ones offer decent quality voice sound regardless of how I move around... and make it easy to practice, and voice quality is good, and you don't hear much of the sound of the room. I'd say this is your way to go if you're practicing!

        With desk mounted microphones, your voice will change depending on your position / proximity, so if you record a 15 minute trance or longer, you need to be conscious of your position relative to the mic.

        I hope you have fun on your hypnotic adventures ;-)

    A microphone will pick up any sounds that strike it. If you are able to talk close to the mic, your voice will be proportionally louder than other sounds, and will cover the other sounds when you speak.

    A problem comes with the slight pauses between words, or between sentences. The other noise in the room then comes through. The type of microphone has nothing to do with it.

    To not have other noise, you must either be in a quiet place, or use a gadget called a noise gate. Unfortunately the only gate fast enough to cut out noise between words is going to be expensive, like a Drawmer 201 dual channel gate - $750 or so, and you need an external mic preamp to drive it. This gets complicated and expensive.

    Something that happens to the sound of your voice when you close-talk a mic is called proximity effect. This causes an increase in the bass frequencies. It is noticable on directional microphones, but not on uni-directional (all direction) mics. But then again the all directional mic can pick up more room noise.

    Furnace and air conditional fans drive me nuts when doing voice-over work, so I do use the Drawmer, but for making your own self-hypnosis recordings, use an inexpensive head-set mic. These things are not very sensitive, nor are they directional, so you can close talk them (you actually have to close-talk because they are not that sensitive), and they won't have much proximity effect.

    I am thinking here about the cheap little head-set mic that comes with a program like Dragon 10.
