I've been DEEPLY interested for a LONG time in producing electronic music.

It has been my DREAM ever since I was introduced to the genre of dubstep to become an EDM artist.

What I want to know is...

 

•what's a decent computer to have for making music

•what equipment I will need

•what programs I will need

•basically what I need to do to get off to good start

 

Please feel free to give me advice. :-)

digital audio workstation (music software)

To learn the basics of the DAW, and analyze stuff you listen to etc

  • Most of not all computers can support making music.
  • Equipment is just literally your computer, man! Unless you're wanting to go serious, just rely on your regular keyboard as most DAWs will use that for default if you don't have a MIDI controller at hand.
  • FL Studio is a good, easy program. It's what I use, and there's alot of good tutorials on how to use it for electronic music. If you feel like a big pro at some point, you can upgrade to Ableton if you want. 
  • Watch a ton of tutorials and actually play around in FL Studio for a bit. Get the feel of it, and learn how music works.

Just watched a tutorial on FL Studio.

Looks pretty simple, yet slightly advanced.

I might check out Abelton later.
