    Cubase SX is easy to learn and it works for both beginners and pros. If you want to buy a cheaper program the 'little brother' Cubasis is a great program for the beginner...

    On the Internet or from your local major computer software retailer.

    I'd reccomend Magix Music.... Not the quality of Cakewalk but darn good for putting together your first track!

    cubase is really easy to start with and there's some advanced stuff you can learn along the way.

    I use Cakewalk and have been happy with it.

    Pick one and stick with it. I've seen Cubase, Cakewalk (Sonar), Voyetra, and if you really want to, try Power Tracks. They all do the same thing recordingwise, but the editing in each varies with the version.

    you obviously never have used fruity loops aka FL STUDIO
    a toy,the mere power in FL is beyond your simple minded grasps
    insulting it as a toy!

    compared to what?

    Surely you would want vst instruments in whatever choice of sequencer you got.

    if your running a mac? go for Logic
    PC grab Cubase SX or SL depending on your demands
    Sonar is similar

    for my music production I create Beats within Fl studio/Reason/orion

    export wavs.
    finish the composition in Cubase Sx.

    Haha LOL sorry for the outburst but hot damn FL as a toy hmph i don't appreciate the insult.

    What about IDD Studio 2003 XP. It's easy to use, anything a beginner needs.
    Got anybody other meanings about this tool?

    Like many of the earlier replies, I would say pick any one and stick with it! In terms of midi, my weapon of choice at the moment is Cubase VST. I've used Cubasis v2.0 and I'm just about to get hold of Cubase SE which is a cut down version of SX.

    My favourite sequencer of all time is Music X on the Amiga which I bought when it was first released (I think it was around £200!!!) When I first saw Steinberg Pro24 on the Atari I thought it was rubbish compared to Music X:) Just goes to show what a difference choosing the right platform can make.

    If you are really just starting out then something like The Hit Kit could be the answer. It's endorsed by Steve Levine and contains a version of Logic Audio. Plus it's less than £25.
