8 Gadgets for music creators you never knew you needed

The thing about creativity is that it can strike at any time whether you’re at home or on your commute. The instruments of yesteryear stifled creativity as you had to wait until you were home or at the studio with all your gear. With the power and innovation of technology, these eight devices help you create music on the go no matter where you are.

8 Gadgets for music creators you never knew you needed
  • What’s the best way to start your day with music? The Xiaomi Mi music alarm clock is ideal for those who can’t start their day without music. This alarm clock is complete with a built-in wireless speaker.
  • Is there a way to physically feel music while creating it? The Wave Wearable MIDI Controller will not only let you control sound but also shape effects as well as send commands.
  • Which portable microphone can give you studio-quality recording? Featuring 24-bit 96 kHz recording, the FOX studio microphone captures the same quality as a professional recording studio.

Like any artistic field, musicians take in everything around them for inspiration. A noisy street can become the percussion. The murmur of fellow commuters takes the form of a bass line. Someone shouting down the street becomes the chorus.

But when you’re mid-commute, it’s hardly the place to compose a masterpiece.

As a result, you’re often left suppressing your creativity until you’re back with your instruments. You could lug around your gear to start creating whenever you’re inspired. Or, you could make it easier on yourself with these devices to help you make music anywhere.
