Hi, I'm new and I have no idea if this is the right place, but here goes:

I'm looking to make some music and I have roughly no idea what program I would need to do that. Looking at the audio resources section, some of the prices there are rather high, and I don't have that much money, so I was wondering:

What program will allow me to compose music on my PC for free?

The only instrument I have any experience playing is the piano, but I know most of the basic theory for that, so I should be fine writing for it. I don't have any audio recording equipment, and my piano isn't electric, so I can't play on that and get music to magically appear on my PC.
I also have some basic knowledge of programs like Sibelius and Sonar, and they were both easy to compose on, but I don't have access to them anymore.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Had it been written today, it would fit into deep house, minimal techno, ambient techno or something like that.

However the album is from 1983, at which time it could only be called "electronica".

I've had a look at LMMS's website, and I like the look of it, but I have no idea whether to download the 32 or 64 bit version, as I have no clue what that even means. If it relates to my PC somehow, it's a few years old, so it might not be able to run anything too intense.
