I really don't have much experience with music creation. I am a motion designer (I make computer animation) and want to be able to create some simple beats, loops, simple basic music, etc. for some of my projects. I often work with Audition for editing, but I want to start creating more than just editing. Also, I am on a mac.
So, after some research, I have come to the conclusion that a good and not too expensive way to get going was to:
Buy a simple midi keyboard. I was considering the Arturia Minilab, which seemed like a good and portable solution.
Start with Garage Band to get the basics and then move to Logic Pro X when I will need more power. It looked like a good idea, since they are both designed by Apple and Logic seems to be like a Garage Band for grown ups.
Would these choices make sense?
