An annual favorite is the Buy-One-Get-One Blue Encore Mics. These are great live vocal and instrument mics and at this price, unbeatable. These mics are so good that I would not hesitate to use them in the studio as well. There are 4 versions including the 100 (dynamic), 100i (dynamic), 200 (active dynamic), 300 (condenser). Grab a pair of these while they are still around!
Monitors are, without a doubt, one of the most important investments an engineer can make in a studio.

The Studio Series is the latest line of USB interfaces from PreSonus. Not only do they look great, but they are built like tanks.

The Swedish company, Softube, are well known makers of premium plugins used by professional mixing engineers everywhere. The Console 1 takes Softube's legacy to the next level, offering plugin control of their own and many of Universal Audio's plugins.
Included in the Console 1 package is Softube's model of Solid State Logic SL 4000 E - one of the most classic and widely used analog consoles in the world. Softube's model has been scrutinized by Solid State Logic's own experts, who have officially endorsed it. The channel strip includes the coveted black knob E 242 equalizer, the classic channel compressor, the musical expander/gate and the sweet high and low cut filters from the SL 4000 E channel. They have also included a model of the harmonics, distortion and non-linearities obtained from overdriving the SL 4000 E console, so you can drive it hard for that slightly gritty and coherent sound that the SL 4000 E is famous for. Adding to that is Softube's own Transient Shaper, which is not a part of the SL 4000 E console or any other analog unit for that matter.

In the past few years, the use of Ableton Live has significantly increased. That is partly because of the incredible ease of use that the Launchkey controllers create for Live users.
