I've always enjoyed electronic music and remixes of popular tracks, and I get excited just thinking about making my own little remixes or even original pieces.
I want to realize this vision. To get started I presume I need to:
- Acquire some software (and maybe some hardware too) and learn how to use it/them.
- Follow some tutorials or exercises that will teach me the principles of remixing or creating simple music.
- Experiment, copy pieces I like, and so forth.
If you're a DJ or producer (are those the correct titles?), what I want to know from you is:
- Is this "roadmap" basically correct? What was your path to becoming a competent DJ/producer?
- What do you recommend I buy/study/do for each of these steps?
- I know it's important to start with a little project that can focus my work as I get started. What do you recommend that be?
