  1. i want to make music similar to that of cashmere cat, in the genre "chillstep". which computer programs and stuff to use? do you create the sound in the computer program, or record something and change it, or both? what do i need to know, do i need to study music theory or know how to read sheet music? i can and will do so if necessary

  2. all you need to make electronic music such as chillstep is a DAW (Digital audio workstation) I use ableton live but there are others like Logic Pro and pro tools. you can download a 30 day trial of ableton on their website. all you need starting out is that. you can add hardware or plug ins later. I make dance tracks (dubstep, trap, house) and downtempo electronica. all made using ableton live check it out. from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum
  3. Pro tools is like some pro shit. Fruity loops is another one if you're just getting into beats
