Thanks

Well congrats with your decision. Keep in mind that this could be the last day of your social life.
Where to start... build up experience that is the first important thing. Learn the programs and find one you feel comfy with. Most people around here are Fruityloops - Cubase or Reason users. There are lots and lots of pages around who show you the basics, even here on the forum there are tons of people around who are willing to help BUT makin music is not a thing which you learn in one day. It takes (yes guys there I go again) YEARS of trying and playing around, and if you keep going on, there will be a day that you fix something which just gives you *that feeling*. Just that track which shows you that you are on a good way. Believe me, making music means headache, its one of the most complicated forms of creativity if you ask me. But at the same time, one of the most free form of art that is around ;).

My first advice would be, find a program what fits you (magix ? ;p) DONT be scared by the tons of *things you can press or turn/twist* its a thing you have to get used to. learn how the basic of *wave forms* are created and how you can edit it, and make sure you got a feeling for rhythm or else... well its just like trying to use a skateboard without having any balance...

Good luck....................................
