I must agree. Why does she... Why wouldn't she like PayPal?

Paypal is notorious for having horrendous customer service, locking accounts at random, refusing to release large chunks of funds, and in general just being obtuse and annoying.

However, for the purposes of bandcamp, it is highly unlikely to be a problem unless you become super-crazy-rich overnight (as evidenced by me using paypal for bandcamp despite hating absolutely everything about it).

Reminds me I need to update my page with bandcamp integration, + new graphics. Sometime in the future when I'm in 'mildly promote myself by whore-networking' mode I'll shoot you some likes.

I actually created Facebook just so I could use that Bandcamp app to whore out my music even more than I already do.

I had my account frozen with about $1200 in because apparently the Australian government doesn't like it when you have money they don't know about. They say "cause terrorism lol" but they really mean "we want to be able to tax you more".

ANYWAY I had to send a scan of my drivers license and a bank statement, which kinda irked me but they had my fucking money and I wanted it back :V Once I did that everything was fine and I haven't had any problems with paypal since.

She claims someone illegally took some money out and so it was frozen.

zero-gravity, it all boils down to three aspects-

1. What genre of music you will endeavor to create.
2. Your knowledge of music theory.
3. How focused/committed you wish to be on music composition.

If you want to compose Ambiance, per instance, there are programs that have a better setup for that (or so I am told). If you know nothing of music, shy away from programs that rely heavily on musical notation and lean more on either piano-scroll or related notation/entry methods. If you plan to do it as an occasional hobby with no real focus, consider a free program until you get going.

Money also matters. You can't buy very good stuff with $180, but you can get a start on what you need.

If you don't know much about music but want to write it, I heavily caution you to enroll in a music theory class or two, or even browse this forum or elsewhere for tutorials (I know of a few good basic music theory guides out there... and there ARE tons of resources out there) before even putting down your pen, so to speak.

I'd just like to note something here... By no means do you need to know music theory to make good music. It can certainly help speed up your learning process, but it's hardly a requirement.

Music theory doesn't teach you how to write good music, it only teaches you how everything in the music works together. You could know all the music theory in the world and still write terrible music, just as you could have little to no knowledge of music theory and compose a masterpiece.

Creating music is more about creativity, imagination, and soul than it is about cold hard knowledge.

That said, if you already own FL Studio, that would be a great place to start, as it is pretty much the most beginner friendly "high end" DAW on the market. But just because it's easier to get into doesn't mean it's not fully capable in the hands of a professional.
