As a ridiculously passionate music buff, as many of you know, I am trying to experiment more in creating music and I'm trying to gain experience in different instruments. One that I've always taken interest is entirely foreign to me is electronic music creation. I know that there are several producers (musicians? what are they called...) of electronic music that frequent this site (Phil?) so I was greatly hoping that you could give me some very broad starter information on how to create such music. The information I would like to know is what programs to use, and perhaps a link to a basic tutorial or similar. The only way I can fathom creating it is to place each individual sound separately which I could imagine would be a little like painting pixel by pixel (worse actually, as you'd have to find each sound to begin with). I would think that with my general easy of computer usage and with experience in digital art, I could compose something at least slightly interesting. Further more, my inspirations come not from electronic music but rather what I believe could be created with the medium in the genres I would create in.
