    Yeah it's pretty much down to FL Studio or Reason, the 2 of them will get you off with the basics :)

    forget all the fancy vst's.... start out with any DAW and learn the basics, it will come with every thing you need. fancy instruments are no substitute for a good knowledge of what your doing

    id stear well clear of synths like massive until you have mastered basic synthesis... the controls in massive will mean absolutely nothing if you dont
