Before you can start taking any steps to make your own music, you’re going to need an instrument. You’ll get several great tutorials and guides in the following section.
Here’s an overview of the main things you’ll need to prepare for this.
A laptop with at least two HD video cameras (optional) A laptop powered by a 4th generation Intel processor
There are also a bunch of other tools you can use too. In particular, a good MIDI controller, audio interface, and audio interface for the DAW you are going to use.
If you’re interested in a few of the popular DAWs, take a look at this page.
