About Spectre Sound Studios:
I’m Glenn Fricker, engineer here at Spectre Sound Studios. I love making records, and after doing it for sixteen years, I want to pass on what I’ve learned. On my channel you can find tutorials on how to record guitar, bass, real drums and vocals. There’s reviews and demos of tube amps, amp sims, drums, mics, preamps, outboard gear, Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar, and plugin effects.
We’ve covered Moon on the Water, played Bias FX, given you the absolute best in Stupid Musician Texts, ranted & raved about bass guitar, and this channel is where The Eagle has Landed.
Everything you’ve wanted to learn about recording Hard Rock & Heavy Metal can be found right here on this channel!

I also respond to your comments & questions: The best make it into the SMG Viewer’s Comments series of videos. Loads of fun, lots of laughs.

    Bottom line: Don't let Glenn be your guest. He can destroy your gear which you paid who knows how much dollar for it 🙂 Funy video 🙂

    Ok Glen, get back to me when you actually make a "fearless gear review" and not a "fearless bitching about so called ethical issues and not even giving a simple demo of the product then breaking it like fucking Techrax". Seriously, I'm not a big fan of autotune myself but this video was just so damn annoying to watch…

  3. JesseJames

    Well that wasn't really a review was it really?
    Like, I'm totally for smashing anything that is regularly used in the music industry, but I was curious as to how it works and the difference between real singing and autotune

  4. Samuel Emmett

    I feel like there are ethical ways to use autotune, and it's similar to how I feel about audio quantization. While neither have a place in the final mix of a song, they can help the vocalist/musician to have a reference to what the final product should sound like. Then the vocalist/musician can have a piece of reference material to practice to.

  5. Kyle 7K

    I have no issue with using autotune as an effect. It's no different than using a delay, reverb, phaser, flanger, distortion. Where would guitars be without distortion? Coffee shop and campfire ponytail guys singing hippy songs on acoustics. However trying to pass yourself off as a good singer with autotune does deserve the ax.

  6. Low-Tech Mods

    Quit being a puss and actually get with the times. Autotune is a valid tool. Might as well throw away your computer and digital processing units, since you are so adverse to using modern equipment.

  7. Dyani K.

    Glenn, what is you opinion on using autotune for non-music-centric endevours, for example, comedy or/and parody acts (like Weird Al, but without a real singer doing vocals)?

  8. BassasaurusRex

    I agree that auto tune is abused to hell with many bands. But I’m more on board with the German guy’s wavelength.
    A note or two in one or two songs in a 8-10 song session is OK for me if the performance is otherwise amazing.

    Even then though, as a person with dignity, you’d like to think the singer would leave the studio after the session and cut a check for $50 bucks to get some work done with a vocal coach so it doesn’t happen again.

  9. David Belcher

    Yeah…..don't sell it and donate the money to the needy, which would actually make AutoTune useful to Society!! Just smash it for 5 seconds of mild joy instead….. Nihilism at its Best!!!

  10. Ian Alderman

    I'd buy the autotune remains if Glenn and Henning signed it, then I'd display that motherfucker on the living room wall! But I bet it's gone now

  11. Rich Sackett

    So, in Germany you have to use safety glasses to destroy equipment but not in Canada? The Germans have so much to teach us all.
