    Making House and Electro

    Where do I start? Every source says start with FL studio then move to ableton live. Got it. However I can never find any source which tells me what the fuck everything in the program is/does. It's just a geometric mess on my monitor and I click and turn nobs at random trying shit out to no avail. Does anyone have a good guide which explains what everything is when I open up a music program? It's like looking at a jet engine an trying to fix it. Thanks B-ros.

    I have no idea if there is a guide. Part of the fun was figuring out how to use everything. (which is still an on going thing for me) What type of midi controller are you using?

          Reason is bloody awesome, but I mainly use to arrange guitar loops. I plan on using my MIDI keyboard with it in the near future.

          I've heard good things about Logic Pro too.

            learn about MIDI. Get your hands on a bunch of samples and, if possible, a 303-style VST. Learn about LFO's, different waveforms, filters, envelopes, parameters etc...

            It's not something that can be briefly summarised in one Be-Mag post.
