Default Creating Music

Hi,
I think it would be fun, trying to create my own music, but i have no idea how
I just want to try it and so i dont want to buy any equipment.
So my Question is: Can someone recommend me some tutorials; Wich are the best programms (i saw fl studio should be good) and wich other things I need.

I know that, if I rly want to make music, I have to invest money...but for the beginning I just wanna see, if its fun and if I like it

Thanks for answers

Hello, I started out using FL and for me it was an amazing beginning experience. The main things I used in FL were some headphones and speakers definitely, I've upgraded since then so that I can produce better music. But you definitely need at least a good pair of headphones and a good ear for the Hi's Lo's and Mid's.

I second FL Studio.
Pretty user-friendly and good for starters.
It's best to sit down with someone who already uses it and to let this person explain the basics to you, at least that's what I did. Never watched any tutorials since then, don't like those and prefer exploring on my own.
But I mostly produce genreless, lo-fi stuff, so it depends on what you are trying to do.
There are also tons of synth and effect plug-ins for FL Studio, as for most of those programs I imagine, a lot of them for free.

Or, instead of going the *cough* illegal route, here's an alternative:

I've always found Fruity Loops to be pretty basic.

Ableton is less intuitive but in my opinion it's ultimately better.

My first program was Reason, which probably has the most intuitive interface I've ever worked with. Unless you are an EQ god it will sound like **** though.

Ableton is the best option, but confusing at first. Check out SadowickProduction's youtube channel, his tutorials are pretty good.

Or if you're on a Mac, you probably have GarageBand already installed. It has a bunch of cheesy presets you can dink around on.
