You want to buy your music producer loved one a gift for Christmas, their birthday, whatever - what do you get them? This is a list of gifts for music producers ranging from less than $100 to several hundred dollars. Remember, music products are incredibly personal so you should make sure its something they can actually use, and that they don't already have it. I'll try to explain what these products are used for as well as I can, but make sure to click the links and do your research before buying them.    Category: General Music Stuff This category...

Pulsar is the newest expansion pack for Falcon by UVI, featuring futuristic basses, leads, atmospheres, pads, FX and more. Pulsar is priced at $39 like their other expansions and is available now from UVI.

In my opinion Falcon is the most powerful software synthesizer on the market, featuring 15 oscillators, over 80 effects, a sample engine that rivals Kontakt, and a scripting language / drag and drop GUI macro designer. Falcon...

The Behringer Model D is a very accurate clone of the Moog Minimoog Model D, for an incredibly low $300. This isn't some kind of digital recreation or analog circuit simulation, it is a full analog clone. This is a synth that everyone should consider buying whether you have a Minimoog or don't have one (why lug your $3,000 heavy unit around when you can carry this around?). I recently made a video exploring the sounds of the Behringer Model D, which you can check out here: Starsky Carr on YouTube has made an excellent video demonstrating how closely the...
