hey all; i've been interested in learning how to make electronic music for a while now, and since i'm cutting back on guitar playing for now because of tendonitis (or something) i figure now would be a good time to learn.
i'm just wondering if any of you have any experience, and know how i should go about it. i have a mac, what's the best software for it? do you have to buy a lot of instruments or synthesizers or what? i'm interested in learning it all, making electronic music, ambience, making beats and doing remixes. i've got garageband, but i think i'm ready for something more advanced and professional, the real thing.
i think the medium has a lot to offer for jazz composition, incorporating acoustic and electronic sounds. i'm thinking of stuff like heartcore, and even invisible cinema where parks uses a tiny bit of electronics. speaking of heartcore, anybody know how he did the electronic stuff on that? i'm especially interested in the tunes interlude and love in the modern world - a lot of it sounds so real, maybe there's a lot of overdub in the flute part?
