About Adam Steel - Hop Pole Studios

Have you watched the video? WATCH THE VIDEO! It explains a lot.

We're Hop Pole Studios, and I'm Adam Steel. Along with my producer Liam Wright, we run a recording studio from Ashton-Under-Lyne, Manchester, England, and we make YouTube videos on mixing tutorials, software and hardware reviews, guitar gear, and how to ascend to the next level of your engineering skill.

If you've not seen a Patreon campaign before, we're asking for money. It's not like a charity, because if you're into recording music, mixing, playing guitar/bass/drums, then we can give back to you - we can show you how to use the gear you have in better ways, or which gear you should buy out of the many choices (and more importantly WHY you should use what we suggest) and generally you can feel good about helping us out!

We recently did a shootout of all these guitar strings, which was a great learning experience, but cost us over £100 to do. We can't do things like this again without help, because doing something like this we can't get them for free, because who would give us things for a completely unbiased review where anything could happen?

Thank you. It really means a lot to us.

At this level, the plugins would still be paid for, but so would the internet and electricity, so we could sleep better at night knowing that the basics were covered, and focus more on talking to you guys and making more videos.
