Hello,
I was thinking of a gift for my father who is working with Mixcraft Pro Studio 6. I though it would be good idea to purchase a plugin. He is hobby-kind of song-writer who likes to compose from time to time. He is always using mixcraft interface (never recording a guitar or something). He likes to compose modern pop songs (so kind of house, alternative) and he never finishes his songs at home - when he has a good song he goes to some studio to record vocals and finish it there. What I know he is crazy in hi-res stuff - like 24 bit instead of 16 and o on... What would you consider as a good gift for him? He has many things already so feel free to give more than just one hint.
I was also thinking of hardware purchase because he is using only mouse and some m-audio keyboard. Is there anything what would simplified his work?
Thanks in advance!

Does he do any singing? If so, consider buying him a new interface such as the brilliant Scarlett Studio

Nope. He does not sing.
But thank you very much - maybe in the future he would be interested in recording vocals (not his own) at home and looks like a great option!

How does he use Mixcraft? Does he use a keyboard and soft synths? If we knew the mechanisms and mechanics he uses in recording at home perhaps we could give you some better ideas.
When he records, what does he put on his tracks?
If you will answer that I am sure we will flood you with ideas,

It might help to know what he already has also. For instance does he have Kontakt?

I don't know about vsts but for vocal work a good mic & tube preamp never hurt.
