What Do I Need To Start Producing My Own Electronic Music?

I am going to start producing my own electronic music and I already have a laptop (being shipped to my house in about a week) and ableton live 8. Is there anything else I need/should get first (I.e. Traktor, midi, mixers, etc) or will my current setup of just a laptop be ok?

    You’ll probably want mixers, VST packs, and some tutorials. This guy has helped me so much with my production of Electronic music. I’d recommend watching all 7 of these (about home studios and producing Electronic) —> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBTUPPfQm… He has alot more videos pretty much all focusing on Electronic music and it’s production! Good luck!

    A laptop and Ableton is more then enough to start creating electronic music. Two notable electronic musicians who produce their music with ableton and on laptops are Skrillex and Dead mau5. However, if you want sounds that you hear by these artists and in todays electronic music you will most likely want to invest (or illegaly download… :/ ) in the VSTs (Virtual Studio Technology) that are called “Massive” and “Nexus”. You may also want some electronic sample packs such for drums. Lastly, anything in regards to learning the ropes of electronic music creation can be found on youtube and google.

    You are going to need at least some VSTs and Sample Packs. Ableton by itself will not give you the sound you need. Get some Sample Packs too (Vengeance, Audiotent, 5P, Sample Magic). Start researching, this should help as a start.http://www.musicradar.com/tuition/tech/t…http://www.musicradar.com/news/tech/the-…
