The Create Digital Music Blog just released a Holiday Gift Guide on their site today. They cover everything from software, to hardware, to accessories, and best of all, it’s all under $200. If you love music gear as much as me, you’re definitely gonna wanna check this out:
“Now, normally “gift guides” tend to pick items you’d rarely buy as a gift. So, speaking of restrictions, this year I’m imposing a price limit: $200 maximum, meaning the kinds of things you actually would buy as gifts. (There are many worthy items above $200, but I’m assuming anyone spending more than that already has made up their minds.) And, we went to you, the readers, to tip us off on the items that mattered.

This forces me to conclude that we have not even come close to seeing, or hearing, the full potential of what music is capable of being today. In other words, there is A LOT of room for growth. I think music creation is getting more interesting than it ever has been. Check some of this stuff out:
