It’s that time of year again, where everyone is getting their shopping together for friends and family for the holidays. While everyone else is finding the awkward ties for Dad or that sweater two sizes too big for your lover, if you are a producer (like myself), this season can only really mean one thing–the hunt for more musical gear is on.

Whether you sketch out tracks on your day off or write the next big anthem headed to the majors, these are definite must-haves for your studio.
