    A lot of people here go for tutorials. Popular software is Cubase, Fruityloops, Logic (for mac,) Ableton. I'm using Studio One now, as it's simple and very very powerful. Not great with compatibility with other software though - have a look around and see what you like the look of, then check out some youtube tutorials for that sequencer. A lot of DnB producers on here use Massive as their main instrument, so check that out too.

    Also, post in the right section, the main Production forum - you might not get as many replies here as this is for track reviews and feedback whatnot :)

    Don't forget reason, acid, etc.

    Best way I can suggest to start is remixes. Google remix contests. There are literally 100s going on at all times, and these can supply you with interesting loops to start a project with. Theres nothing harder than starting a song without an idea for bass or melody, so a remix somewhat takes the stress out of it. Also, look on the forums here for people giving out breaks (ie drumloops).

    If you are struggling with creating something you are proud of, keep trying different approaches until you get something to please your ears. If that fails and you get frustrated, start a new project.

    good luck!

    a lot of people prefer Fruityloops for ease of use. I personally find it way too fiddly. I'd go for Cubase because you'll be able to find a lot of information on using it, same with FL again...

    I have tried ableton (not much though) FL Studio, and Acid. I've stuck with FL Studio because of the layout, and the piano roll. It took me roughly a week to a month to understand the general features (without tutorials), and up to a year now to grasp the full complexity of dials and switches. I am considering switching over to Cubase because of the built in features which I have to jump through hoops to complete in FL.

    Sylenth1 is an amazing synthesizer that's really easy to learn, I'd really recommend it.

    lost in translation there. I'm not talking about mixing, but remixing (taking a song, and giving your own version of it)

    check that link, i think you will understand.
