    good programs for beginners: cubase, reason

    I suggest taking a class in your high school, if they have one, on MIDI or as ours is called "music and computers". As simple as these programs are they can be pretty tricky to figure out on your own.

    A free MIDI sequencer you can learn a lot from is available at http://www.anvilstudio.com/

    Definitely not WAV/MP3, so you can forget about that right now. With SoundFont support, I have been able to successfully convert MOD/S3M files to MIDI with 98% accuracy. MIDI is its own thing, and does not get along well with other audio formats, structurally speaking.

    logic is certainly the worst to begin but one of the better to use for long (because it is fully configurable) dp4 is powerfull quite simpler than logic

    i don't know protool

    The best one to get your feet wet IMHO is ACID. It will do some things automatically for you that other programs won't. Just plain easy to use.
