Gifts for Beginner Producers
For producers just getting started recording at home, check out the Focusrite Scarlett Solo Studio 2nd Gen Recording Package or PreSonus AudioBox Studio Bundle. Both packages include a microphone, headphones, USB audio interface, and recording software -- just add a computer. The PreSonus pack gives you two mic preamp channels, and adds 5-pin MIDI in and out ports for connecting a MIDI keyboard.

Every up-and-coming producer can use a solid pair of studio monitors -- try the JBL LSR305s, or the PreSonus Eris E4.5 pair.

When you're recording vocals at home, an sE Electronics Reflexion Filter can help capture cleaner sound. The X1 Studio Microphone Bundle includes the X1 microphone itself and the filter to go around it, plus a pop filter and XLR microphone cable.

If the producer on your list is into synths and and electronica, we highly recommend the Arturia KeyLab 25 -- it's a top-notch MIDI controller keyboard bundled with Arturia's Analog Lab software synthesizer.

Every producer can use a pair of headphones, for making music late into the night without bothering neighbors. You can't go wrong with the Audio-Technica M50X or Senneheiser HD280 set. We recommend closed-back headphones for tracking acoustic instruments and vocals, while open-back headphones are generally more accurate when you're mixing and mastering in headphones.

Gifts for the Producer with Everything
Can you ever have too many microphones? Mics make great gifts -- even the most seasoned producer is always looking to add to their collection. Microphones are beautiful, they don't take up much space, and they never become obsolete!

For the producer that wants to build beats in their home studio, the Akai MPC Touch is a controller for the included MPC software, which includes some 20 GB of samples and software instruments from Akai. It pairs a 7" multi-touchscreen to the classic 16-pad grid, giving you a new way to get hands-on with your music.

Then there's the Novation Circuit, a standalone desktop synth and drum machine that also works as a pad controller for the included Ableton Live Lite software. The Circuit doesn't even require a computer to work, so it's a great gift for producers of any experience level.

Producers want to listen to music on their big, powerful speaker systems, not a wimpy little Bluetooth speaker. That's where the Bose Wave Bluetooth Audio Adapter comes in handy -- it adds a Bluetooth receiver to any speaker system, so anyone with a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or laptop can stream tunes to the producer's studio monitors.

No clue what to get? Let them decide with a zZounds gift certificate. Check out our Hottest New Gear picks for more ideas!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
