    Youtube is great for tutorials on all DAW's
    Samples packs can be found all over the net (PM me)
    Just try the programs that you feel suit you
    I used Reason for 3yrs until i recently changed over to Cubase
    Personally id use a mac rather than a pc,
    But i cant afford one =[ booooo lol
    Keep asking questions too,
    Were all here to help and all here for the same thing =]
    Hope this helps

    Best advice I can give you is to be patient.

    The rest will come.

    Oh and buy books if you like quick reference.

    Reason is nice, been using it for over a year and I can say I am comfortable with it. Don't know much bout cubase or logic, I use Pro Tools.

    Use a Mac.

    Good luck.

    When you are just starting I find the quality of the samples isn't as important as how you use the samples you have
    Use the samples which come with your DAW or anything you can get a hold of
    At this point it isn't about making a blockbuster track, it's about learning and how to use what you have
