Our Suggestions and Presents for Producers
Buying presents music producers 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 including a range of headphones, synths and audio interfaces to name but a few options.
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 - tehy make fantastic gifts for producers and those home studio enthusiasts. We’d suggest Sennheiser, Beyerdymanic, AKG, Yamaha and the coveted KRK KNS headphones as great starting points with the KRK KNS 8400 Headphones being the industry standard choices.
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 is an all-in-one studio software bundle 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.
