    i want to start making my own tunes, was thinking about investing in something like this http://www.htfr.com/more-info/MR204988 and getting fruityloops (apparently its the easiest to just get stuck in with?) i dont wanna do anything too fancy jus start messing around making simple beats, breaks etc.. is this all i need?

    FL and Reason are both good programs to get started on, pick up the free demo's on their websites (google it if u don't know the address) see which one u feel most comfortable with and take it from there ;)

    agree ^^ start on fl studio fella, i promise you .. the most simple to take in ...

    also this what taught me and fratanize the very very starting blocks ..

    http://uk.youtube.com/results?search_query=fl+studio+beginners+tutorial&search_type=&aq=f

    and also ..


    and very importantly, warbeats ( NFX) fl studio tutorials, just sit for a few hours watch and absorb it all and put to practice..

    http://www.warbeats.com/Forums/tabid/59/view/topics/forumid/24/Default.aspx

    and also , there is a search facility ... you see the blue bar accross the screen ... ' user cp ' 'faq ' memeber list ' etc etc ... there is a search button , that will search this forum .. in that search bar tsearch fl studio or fruity loops .. and you will get all the threads/posts that have info on fl studio in them .. or search beginner/s ... or ' new to production ' and you will find loads of info, there are alot of threads started on here all the time with similar questions from people wanting to get into making there own tracks so use the search bar its a nice thing to have available. , and when you have done abit of research you can come on here and be abit specific on what you want to know, and people can help more ...
