    Err hi, im in need of some advice - i want to start creating my own tunes- just with a pc to start with then get some samplers in an some proper ivories but i dont have aclue about which brands r any good. Could somebody fill me in on a basic set-up that would fulfill my creative aspiriations/fuckedupidness within the constrains of a budget thats more tight than a badger in a matchbox.

    codshot- do you mean which programs are good for beginners to mess around in to get the production basics down? fruity loops is a relatively easy loops based program which is often recommended, anything by Propellerheads (Reason, reCycle etc) I know a lot of guys like SoundForge and personally I dig AbSynth. Although there are far more expensive programs out there these are not really that cheap. In Aus the RRP for Reason is $900 (we do it a lot cheaper but that gives you an idea).
    Earlier this year Mac bought into a couple of software companies that specialise in audio and bought out this pretty good program that was available from Mac for like $90. so if you havent bought your pc yet.....

    The buttons are red because it can't find the samples. Try some others...
