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.

Thanks for checking out my channel & please subscribe!

    Hey Glenn, This question might be relevant to many viewers: I only have 2 electrical outlets in my home studio room! It’s a great room, I’ve got decent gear, but I’m worried about electrical overloading and extraneous noise from poor electrical connectivity.
    I realise you can’t give advice on health & safety, but general advice on how best to power multiple devices from minimal outlets would be very helpful?
    It would also be great to know relative effects of background noise/hum from electrical circuits, and whether any products are available to help (rather than getting the house re-wired)?
    Cheers from Scotland Big Man!

    Hey Glen, I'm doing an audio engineering degree at my college and am at a crunch for money. I want to put together a recording desktop from scratch and was wondering what advice you had. Components to focus on, or really just any advice for people on a budget.
    Please help! Much love for your content

    Expanding on the monitors question, due to not having the cash to shell out for studio monitors at the moment, I've been using a pair of regular bookshelf speakers I had lying around for my mixing until I can afford the real thing. Any advice on how to get the "truest" sound out of something like that? Or would you suggest not using them? Thanks dude, cheers and junk.

    just in case you're reading this Haunted Smores: firstly, i am not a doctor. i'm another guy with some pain and numbness in the hands. in my case, it turns out there is a bone spur that is pressing on a nerve cluster and that has to get scraped off in order for the pain and numbness to go away. if i'd self-diagnosed as carpel tunnel, i might not have done the things necessary to get the treatment i'll need. i'm not at all saying that what you're experiencing is the same. i'm only sharing that story so that you know that what you're experiencing could be a huge variety of different possible conditions. glenn is absolutely correct: see a doctor if at all possible. find out the actual cause and get on a treatment path.

    Hey Glenn, can you check out the Fleor pickups for guitar and bass in AliExpress? A classmate said they sound awesome but I want your opinion as well. They cost like 5 to 10 bucks.

    Hey Glenn,
    I’m a senior in high school and I’ve got a band with my two friends. One of them is my BEST friend, and the other friend, I’m still trying to get closer with her. I just don’t think that she’s band material. She doesn’t have any of her own equipment and I have to provide everything for her, and she’s not practicing enough on her own. I think that maybe she could step up her game, but what if she doesn’t? She’s my friend and I’m not sure if I wanna kick her out, how can I make this work?
    Thank you 🙂

    I completely disagree with the "work at whatever pays" philosophy. I've found it's so important to at least work in a place or with people who are related to what you want to do – MUSIC! So wait tables at a metal bar, sell tickets or do the coat check at a concert venue, work in a record store … whatever's gonna get you in contact with interesting people. Your day job doesn't have to suck. Flipping burgers should be a last resort.

    Hey Glenn,

    Greetings from Le Montreal.

    Here's a good follow up question to the Passive Speaker question. I have a set of HS8's in my recording room, at home I have some pretty cool TCM-28's (which are passive), a set of hand made custom vintage passive tweet speakers, and a passive sub. What would you recommend, to do some ''home-work'' as a power amp for passive ''mixing'' speakers? Or do you think I should just get an entirely new set of active speakers?

    Love the show.
