Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I don't think this is a good question for this site; but my recommendation would definitely be Reaper – leftaroundabout Jul 13 '14 at 10:43
Depends on what kind of music you want to do and what instruments you use (recording, midi or just computer-based music). Tell us more about it by editing your question – muffin Nov 4 '14 at 7:41

I guess it depends on what you're going to do. In my opinion Cubase, Pro Tools, Reaper, Logic are wide softwares to produce the music you want. FL Studio should be much more disco genre oriented. I've tried FL Studio time ago but I found that stranger than all the others.

Find a software that you like and learn how to use that. The basics functions are about the same... the difference is the approach. You have to add some plugins to your DAW. Find out Waves, FabFilters, iZotope vst (for mix/master)

I really think FLStudio is genre agnostic like most DAWs or Sequencers. Depends what you are writing with it. Reason and FLStudio are more sequencer based than recording based. – Ross Edman Oct 20 '14 at 15:58

I don't think there is a single DAW which is not complicated but I'd recommend Ableton Live, which I use.

For me it was really important to have someone explain to me the basics of Ableton before I began producing music. There's tons of videos on youtube, here's one:
