TEENAGE EN­GI­NEER­ING POCKET OP­ER­A­TOR £49 from teenageengi­neer­ing.com

At the time of writ­ing I can’t think of any­thing cooler than Teenage En­gi­neer­ing’s tiny pocket syn­the­siz­ers and sound gen­er­a­tors. They come in a va­ri­ety of flavours – drum ma­chines, se­quencers, sam­plers and more – and al­low you to cre­ate beats and tunes on the go.

ROLI SONG­MAKER KIT £419 from ama­zon.co.uk

It might be a bit pricey, but the Roli sys­tem of com­puter-con­trol­ling mu­si­cal in­stru­ments could be all you need to make the next hit. Com­bin­ing a key­board and a touch-sen­si­tive “block” you can play with taps and swipes, it works with any dig­i­tal au­dio work­sta­tion on any com­puter plat­form, and looks and sounds like it could be the fu­ture of mu­sic mak­ing… If the set is out of your price range, these com­po­nents and oth­ers are avail­able stand­alone.
