Music Program for a beginner Oct. 7th, 2012 @ 10:38 PM Reply

Hey, I've been listening to electronic music for a while, and I've decided to take a chance at producing it. Can anyone tell me some good programs for producing electronic music for begginers?

For starters, you need at least one of these:

I recomend FL studio, reputed to be the most user friendly.

I looked at that list and it appears Reaper isn't on it. Who would I have to contact to add it? I also know of another one that's not on there so this isn't simply fan-boy-ism, I think they both should be added. ^^

First of all, I wish you luck in your music endeavors. Secondly, I would recommend FL Studio as well as TheZaaL said..

And I would second his statement. Also, from my personal experience with producing programs, (which to be honest is a bit limited, Music Maker on the ps2, Audacity on my linux partition, and FL Studio) it's the best program I have worked with so far, many features, and plugins to really give you pretty much any musical feel you want.

Also giving those links a read is a pretty good jump on a bit of good info.

So good to find someone else who uses Reaper! It's fantastic!

LMMS. Doesn't cost you a penny, yet it's powerful.

After that, you might consider buying Fl Studio. I can't say rat's shit about it, because I've never used it.

I'm pretty sure a lot of people use Reaper. It's not that unknown anymore. However, in general, it is used by people with the need to record real instruments and with the large masses of electronic musicians using FL Studio, it looks as if other DAWs are obscure and used only by a few people. In the end, whichever one suits your needs and feel most comfortable with is the best DAW.

I might be a little biased, since I was born and raised into making music with FL Studio. It's a good program, great versatility, but a little expensive, if you end up buying Producer mode and some plugins. I read up on Reaper, it looks fantastic, but I am honestly hooked on FL Studio for now. Only time will tell. Hope to see some tracks of yours being posted in the near future!

+1 for starting on FL Studio. I started on it, and eventually migrated to Cubase when I had learned more.

Just don't be like me and try starting with notation software unless you know your stuff solid. Use LMMS or one of the other mentioned ones. I myself started on LMMS using Soundfonts.
