I'm mostly a non musician these days, but I've been pondering doing a little bit of electronic / retro game music production.
I'm intending entirely with synths at the moment.
I have a Macbook Pro and a Reaper license, but I'm thinking I won't use that as Reaper is fairly sucky for MIDI stuff.
I've had a little play around with Garageband and that seems like it would probably do 90% of what I need, but I'm also pondering Ableton Lite as I've heard good things about it.
Be interested in any tips from anyone who dabbles in the above.
I imagine I'll get pretty tired of piano roll editing so I may end up investing in a little mini controller. The Novation Launchkey looks interesting and includes Ableton Lite which I've heard good things about. If I went the Garage band route the Akai MPK Mini MKII
also looks cool.
