For getting the most from your ghost box sessions,
You may of seen ‘a portal’ device being used on a lot of TV shows. This one is built with the P-SB 11 and P-SB 7 users in mind. Its twin input will enable P-SB 11 uses to maximise their units though the portal, if you don’t use a P-SB 11 then just use either input A or B, OR if you want you can plug in two separate devices at once.
The sound travels though the ghost box into the portal where you can control the amount of ‘noise or hiss’ using the hiss killer controls, from there the sound goes to a sound staging unit so that you can add perhaps a little reverb this will help you grasp the words that are coming though, you can also make adjustments to how much of the affect is used. From there the signal goes to the amplifier where volume bass and treble can be adjusted, the twin speakers are matched to the amplifier to give the best sound possible.
The Portal v5 requires two 9v batteries or an external rechargable battery pack, (not included) i recommend a 12v 6800mAh as a minimum The Portal also has minimal lighting knowing that most investigations take place in the dark, i personally find it off putting to be dazzled by unnecessary ‘flashing or constant lights’. The two lights that are on the portal are indicators so at a glance you can see which sound possessor is active.
We have been using a portal now for a few years on various ghost events and have found that it is much preferred by our guests and some of the results have been totally mind blowing and incredible. This unit is hand build and is a direct comparison to the latest version we are using on our events (version 5) where each version has been improved along the way to get the best results possible.
There are a number of other ‘portals’ available from various places however we wanted to deliver the best value for money and performance which is why we are now offering the PIGS Portal for anybody to purchase.

This is a fantastic piece of equipment it worked so well with my psb11 I find the psb11 to be a great way of Communication but the sweeping noice can some times make it hard to Completely hear what is trying to be said , I found the portal v5 really brought forward the voices and I was then able to hear them very clearly without the sweeping noises Drowning out the voices .it can be set up very quickly and easily and worked perfectly on every occasion that I have used it definitely a must have
