Gift Ideas for Producers
The life of a music producer involves long, stress-filled days of spending sometimes 12 hours at a time sat in the recording studio. With that in mind, here are some gift suggestions for that special producer in your life, ranging from stocking-stuffers to serious pieces of kit.
On this page youll find our mighty selection of headphones, mini synthesizers, novelties and more. Ranging from Secret Santa appropriate gits to specialist items for the one you love, we have it all at Professional Music Technology.
Buying presents for a music producer is no easy task, everybody’s taste varies and musicians are very picky with what gear they use, so it’s always best to go for useful gifts which are universal to all producers. Below we will list a few of our suggestions.
The most important factor when mixing a great track is making sure you have a great sound to work with. Here at PMT We have dozens of world leading studio headphones on offer which can be picked up at great prices. We’d suggest Sennheiser, Beyerdymanic, AKG and Yamaha as great starting points with the Sennheiser HD25 being the industry standard choice.
Another great gift idea which music producers will love is a mini synthesizer. We have dozens of great options available from Roland, Akai and Korg but our top pick to look at has to be the Teenage Engineering range of pocket synthesizers. The gadget may be lost on non-producers but trust us, this is a ludicrously cool toy to play with, capable of making some mean synth beats for bigger projects.
If you're buying a gift for someone fresh into producing, a software bundle is a great option to look at. Propellerhead Reason 9 is an all-in-one studio software bundle from as little as 49 pounds and is sure to make a fantastic contribution to a young producer's development.
Recording Interfaces and Microphone Packs
Experienced studio producers are likely to own a host of impressive microphones to cater to any occasion. For somebody just getting into producing however, a microphone bundle or recording interface such as a Focusrite Scarlett would make a great Christmas or Birthday present.
Cables, speaker stands and wall hanger for instruments are excellent studio accessories to have and a sure fire gift to be appreciated. Be sure to check out our full range of accessories over at PMT Online.
