Advice For One Getting Into Electronic Music Production?

So I’m very interested in producing my own electronic music; mostly house, electro, etc.
I’ve been planning on getting a microKORG for a while; I’m blown away by seeing what it can do. However, after one has a MIDI keyboard and has started to play around on it, what’s the next step to improving the sound and getting it onto a computer/recording it? I would think I need a drum machine since the microKORG doesn’t really have one; then what?
Thanks in advance!

    Well, it’s pretty simple. You need to get a Digital Audio Workstation, or DAW. It’s basically a software package that let’s you record, compose, create and produce. There are many out there, but the most popular are Cakewalk Sonar, Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton Live, Cubase, Nuendo. Most big DJs and producers in the electronic music genre use Ableton, Logic and Pro Tools, but it’s all a matter of taste. I personally recommend getting the Ableton Live Suite, because it also includes a huge sound and instrument library, so you can start composing without anything else. It’s really flexible and you can make very very good sounding songs without any additional hardware or software.

    You need a computer primarily then you also need a Digital Audio workstation like reason,cubase,logic etc this is your main sequencing software,it could cost you some money, you then need some virtual studio technology also known as soft synths

    My suggestion. Get Ableton Live if you have Windows and Apple Logic if you have a Mac because you need a workstation. Like you said, you have synths but you need a drum machine for your beats and mastering the track.
