- Producer Christmas Gift Guide
The Producer Gift Guide
The holidays are nearly here; that means a mad rush to get your nearest and dearest the perfect presents in time for Christmas!
But don't worry, here at Andertons Music Co. we've got you covered. In this guide, we've outlined all of the best tech-related recommendations for producers this Christmas - meaning that you don't have to go digging around for ideas!
Top 10 Gifts for producers
Finding the right gift can be extremely difficult, especially when you're buying for someone as passionate about their hobby as a producer. We also know that what a producer really wants might be outside the realms of what you're willing to pay.
That's why we love recommending our gift vouchers for Christmas presents. It allows you to spend however much you want, while the person you're buying for can choose what they want to get at a later date (or put it towards their next big purchase).
Our gift vouchers are sent digitally and are printer friendly, giving you something physical to present on Christmas day. They're available in a wide range of values from £10 to £500 and are redeemable both online and in-store.
Gift Vouchers £10 - £500
Choosing the Perfect Gift
We've broken down gift ideas into categories to suit different tastes. Whether it's an audio interface, a portable synth, a brand new set of headphones, or anything in between - we've got you covered!
These gifts should be sure-fire winners for absolutely any kind of producer, no matter whether they're a beginner or a seasoned pro.
Our headphone range caters for every need, but this particular selection consists of some of our most popular options. Each one boasts excellent balanced sound that's optimised for music production - click the button below to view our full selection.
We stock a wealth of synthesizers in our hi-tech department - from old-school analog gear, to crystal-clear digital instruments. A synthesizer, big or small, is pretty much guaranteed fun for any musician that's looking to expand their auditory horizons. From portable pocket synths to full-blown studio modules, there's something here for everyone!
A drum machine will let you craft and program drum beats and other rhythmic patterns with absolute ease. You'll then be able to edit the sound of your drums for more intriguing, dynamic performances. Whether it's a pocket-sized Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator (see what they did there), or a seriously powerful Roland model, each brings exciting beat-making possibilities to the table.
Midi Keyboards / Production Controllers
MIDI keyboards and control surfaces are designed to change your approach when it comes to making music. Utilising touch-sensitive technology, colour coordinated interfaces, ergonomic design and much more, connect these to your computer or laptop and take your production to the next level!
If you're looking to track line-level instruments or capture audio from a microphone, an audio interface is what allows you to record straight to your computer.
At Andertons Music Co. we stock a great selection from industry leading brands including Focusrite, Universal Audio and Audient. Boasting high-quality preamps, these audio interfaces will deliver studio-quality audio fidelity for professional-sounding recordings.
If you want to achieve a good mix, you're going to need an equally good set of studio monitors. These will help you to pinpoint the tiniest nuances in your productions, ensuring you can then make the necessary changes for an even better sounding track. Punchy response, acoustic accuracy and resonant audio are all equally important, and this is where you'll find it.
To record, mix and edit a track, a DAW (or digital audio workstation to the uninitiated) is a requirement. Whether it's Pro Tools, Ableton, Cubase, or something else entirely, each will provide the tools required to capture, arrange and alter the sound of your music, all entirely within the software.
Musicians can often be hard to buy for because sometimes they already have everything they could ever want or need! That's where accessories come in; we offer an extensive range of recording, studio and performance accessories that'll fill in the gaps and put a smile on their face.
