Gifts for Beginner Producers: Audio Interface Bundles
For producers just getting started recording at home, an all-in-one studio package can be the perfect gift. The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Studio package includes a microphone, headphones, USB audio interface, and recording software -- just add a computer. PreSonus's AudioBox USB 96 Studio Bundle is another great option -- and it comes with PreSonus' super-popular Studio One Artist music production software.

Ready for the next step up? Help a new home studio producer get started with an all-in-one bundle that includes a set of studio monitor speakers, like the PreSonus Studio One Producer Recording Bundle or Mackie Studio Bundle.
Gifts for Beginner Producers: Studio Monitors
Every up-and-coming producer can use a solid pair of studio monitor speakers. For home studios, we recommend smaller speakers -- here are our favorites across price ranges, from the super-affordable PreSonus Eris and Mackie CRX monitors, to the home studio favorite Kali Audio LP6, to the high-end Adam Audio AX series.
Gifts for Beginner Producers: Recording Tools
When you're recording vocals at home, an sE Electronics Reflexion Filter can help capture cleaner sound. The X1 S Studio Microphone Bundle includes the X1 S microphone itself and the filter to go around it, plus a pop filter and XLR microphone cable. Need more sound isolation? Invest in an IsoVox 2 VocalStudio mobile vocal isolation booth -- it's the next best thing to having a dedicated recording booth in your house!

If the producer on your list is looking for a high-end audio interface that's still portable and desk-friendly, we recommend the Apollo Solo USB for Windows. And for the aspiring producer who wants to get into podcasting, you can't go wrong with the RODECaster Pro -- an interface/recorder with 4 microphone preamps and all sorts of built-in tools for content creators.
Gifts for Any Producer: Headphones
Every producer can use a pair of headphones, for making music late into the night without bothering neighbors. We recommend closed-back headphones for tracking acoustic instruments and vocals. For beginners or pros, the Audio-Technica M50X are a studio workhorse that our customers love. And if you're looking for a truly luxurious pair of headphones with outstanding sound and fit, the Neumann NDH-20 do not disappoint.

For a producer that does less recording live instruments, and more mixing and mastering, a pair of open-back headphones generally delivers a more accurate sound. If high-end open-backs like the Sennheiser HD 600 are a bit out of your price range, check out the more affordable AKG K245 -- a feather-light, super-comfortable open-back design.
Gifts for the Producer with Everything: USB and XLR Microphones
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! Choose a USB microphone like the AKG Lyra to plug the mic directly into your computer or device, or go with a studio-standard XLR microphone if your setup includes an audio interface, mixer, or preamp with XLR inputs.
Gifts for the Producer with Everything: Groove Boxes
Gifts for the Producer with Everything: Video Cameras and More
A video camera makes a killer gift for any producer who wants to make videos! Check out the Zoom Q2n-4K camera with a high-quality stereo pair of microphones built in, or the 4K Benro Snoppa Vmate Gimbal and Camera for shake-free filming anywhere, anytime.

Producers want to listen to music on their big, powerful speaker systems, not a wimpy little Bluetooth speaker. That's where the MEE Audio Connect Bluetooth Audio Transmitter 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 monitor speakers. Every studio needs one!
