im new to this place, i have decks and DJ now and again, but i want to get into making my own music! ive got cubase SX but cant really work my head around it, what is the best program to use to create your own music not just mix tracks, for a beginner like me :D
FlexiMusic Somposer isn't a bad software to start with but it is a bit limiting to the things you can do with it. I moved onto using SONY ACID PRO 6.0. Its a professional grade music editor that allows you to do things like, edit music, remix music, compose music. It allows you to add hardware interfaces into the system, mics, turntables, mixers, keyboards what ever you want. I, personally, use it only to remix music.
Check out this site, it has the cracked version of the software and it teaches you how to use it.
They are many and varied. Most of them just require a little concentration and hard work to figure them out. Digital Performer is one I would not suggest to someone who doesn't like to think through the technical end of things. I use Pro Tools but there are many and varied options.
