I have been a fan of DnB for years and now have a bit of cash to buy some gear to give it a go but none of my friends are into this so you are my only place for advice....any advice gratefully received!
Basically where do I start?
I already own a PC laptop that is quite fast so what else do I need to begin making music? (basics only at first, but want decent quality/expandability). I am looking to produce the more melodic DnB maybe with a bit of sampled female vocal if poss.
So I guess I need a midi soundcard, production software, controlling key board? Do I need a drum machine, expensive keyboard??
Basically what a re the key bits of kit I need and how much should I pay?
No doubt this has been asked before, apologies.
