Okay, I am wanting to get into music production and was wondering. To create music like what Eisenfunk used to make, what equipment and software will I need?
Well, I would say you should get program like Ableton or Logic Pro and learn from there. I personally am learning to make music as well and did a review on Logic Pro, which I use: https://dasklub.com/news/re... now
When I was in high school, I used to use Garageband and I made some awesome music but that was years ago. Is there anything like that I can download for PC?
Yes, there are of course lots of options for PC. I would use Ableton on PC.
Anything more afforadable? I don't have anywhere near that amount of money.
It's worth paying for good programs. The cost of making music is extremely cheap these days, you can do amazing things for less than $1,000 USD.
I went the route originally in my teens of using Fruity Loops (FL Studio), getting a free version and trying to be cheap but ultimately it made me give up on making music until last year.
So, while you don't need the best, most expensive thing out there, I would still say go with Ableton on PC or Logic Pro on Mac.
I've been getting into Reaper a lot these days. I have very limited musical experience, aside from few instruments and the little knowledge I gained when programming a "time stretcher" on raw waveform data.
But I feel that I'm learning tremendously fast now, after I got the hang of how Reaper does things. In almost no time (and few video tutorials) I added a MIDI track, hooked up some synthesizers through plugins, and was already amazed by the possibilities and how easy it was to tune the sounds into something far cooler.
I'm on a zero budget. I'm also not a professional musician - more a sound art dude who likes to learn and experiment, and see where it takes me. Maybe Reaper can be an option for some others too. It's no state of the art / industry standard thing, but it works, it's cheap, and if some of us decide to take it further the same theory apply. Reverb, delay, gain, ...
Some of us might get too technical and never actually produce music because we get too absorbed writing our own synthesizer or whatever VST plugins in JUCE haha - those import into both Ableton and Logic Pro btw
Electronic music is FUN! I'm never picking up an electric bass again haha. I may not be good at it yet, but I see lots of potential, and find myself continuously discovering new things - adding space sounds to atmospheric music or making my vocals sound distorted and bass boosted.
