I've always enjoyed making my own music. When I was young I loved to sing. We didn't own a piano, but I wanted to learn to play the piano. A friend taught me a little bit, but I didn't have a piano to practice on. When I was twelve my parents bought me a used flute which allowed me to join the school band. Recently I came across Sonic Producer. This software fascinates me as it allows one to create music using several different instrumental sounds. I have tried creating photo videos, but I have found it frustrating when trying to add music because of copyright issues. With Sonic Producer I can create my own music which is a lot of fun, and then I can use it as I see fit.
You could buy the software and create gifts with it like MP3's that could be saved to a computer or a MP3 player or burned to a CD. You could add music to a photo video. Then, of course, you could give the software as a gift to someone you know who loves creating music. Sonic Producer could be a very memorable gift.
