ffs I really hate how dubstep inspires people to make music and be good at it suddenly.
Well, frankly, I don't think it's that bad of a thing. More people trying to create music is rather beautiful. It's when they think that they can become a professional producer overnight, without any real effort on their part, that it becomes an issue. I myself became inspired to start making music with dubstep, but I know that I'm nowhere near "good" just yet. I recognize that it'll take me before I can get to where I really want to be. That's the kind of attitude most people that try to get into making EDM need.
To get back on topic, I'd suggest FL Studios is you're just starting out. Like others have said, it's very newbie-friendly. It'll still take you a while to get used to everything, but it won't take you nearly as long as say, Reason or Logic. Don't take "newbie-friendly" as "newbies-only", however. You can still be capable of creating bangers just as people can in other software. It just takes time.
