software to create instrumental music?
I am an absolute beginner and would like to purchase software to create music. I've heard all these names like fruity loops, pro tools, etc.. being thrown around, but which one is the best? what are the differences? I am interested in creating beats for my own music, I don't want to have to depend on other people to make them for me. Please any help is useful. Serious answers only. Thank you all!
I also have a new electronic casio keyboard, is there a program i can use this with?
I have an H.p computer. Should i get a Mac pro, or a different computer or is the H.P cool for making beats?
Please provide as much info as possible, thanks again.

There are many options, and one will tell you this is best, another prefers something else. So, only one way to find out what works best for you, try the programs yourself.
Most music software has demo versions so you can see if a program "clicks" with you. Check the programs on in this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_audio_worksta...
My favorites are FL Studio (Producer Edition) and Ableton Live.
For making beats I prefer FL Studio. The work flow is just right for me, it has a great step sequencer but also an advanced piano roll and it supports VST so you can use (free) instrument and effect plugins for more sounds. In case you end up liking FL Studio you can buy it with 10% discount with this link: https://support.image-line.com/jshop/shop.php?offe...
I recommend the Producer Edition or Signature Bundle as the cheaper versions lack some essential features.
If you Casio has a MIDI out (perhaps with USB) you should be able to use it with most of these music programs. A PC will do fine, although some programs are Mac only (e.g. Logic Pro).
Good luck finding the right program for you!
