Ok, just to answer the question..
You can get any DAW (Program for making music) for a really tight price, ranging from 80$ to hundreds of dollars - Pro Tools being one of the priciest.
If you're starting out in production, I suggest FL Studio, I still use it myself and I've been using it for the last 5 years, and I can say it's the best thing I've ever come across. It's simple to learn and easy to use. They may tell you it's not professional or it's for the 13 year old wannabe, but I can assure you, it's a good product.
Or Else you could get Reason - I've never tried it but it seems quite good judging from the tracks that come out of the programs - Lucky Date uses it and he's released excellent tracks. The only beef with Reason is probably that you can't import VSTs or Plugins, you can only use the Native stuff on Reason like Kong and Thor.
Then there's Ableton, I tried this and it's quite good indeed, it has a simple, easy to get a hold of interface and you can easily make a monster with it, AFAIK deadmau5 uses and you CAN use 3rd Party VSTs on it.
Finally there's Cubase and Logic - I don't know abosultely anything about these two but search around, you might find something worth your while.
You're better off downloading demos so you know what you're buying - Demos are usually found on the DAW's Site.
Finally, You can search on other DAWs, like Garageband or Reaper.
