But what is necessary to become Djem and to submit dance floors? Unfortunately not only feeling of a rhythm and simple skills of the handling of the equipment. The equipment is necessary. Minimum set: 2 Cdvinil of the player, mixer and earphones. Cost averages 50 - 100 thousand rubles! Agree it not all on a pocket...
BUT! For quite some time now we can fully write, reduce and play music on the computer, that is are not necessary to us players and the other expensive equipment , everything will be in electronic (a digital format)!
So, let`s consider 3 main and most famous programs allowing to work with a sound:

FruityLoops can be used for obtaining completely ready song, all necessary components are present at it. A set of effects and not difficult as in a consequence it becomes clear, the interface:)
COUNCIL: be not FRIGHTENED sets “ krutilok “ and “ vertelok “ which you will see for the first time having started the program, since you will get used.
2. Ableton Live - the Most fashionable (if it is possible to be expressed so) the program for “ live “ game, that is it is specially created to work at it during performance. But as well as Fruity Loops is suitable for writing, the data and addition of effects, besides perfectly supports external devices, that is it is possible to connect MIDI - the keyboard and to create a hit!)

3. ACID Pro - the Serious program with serious functions. Supports practically any sound cards and it is created for work mainly with Magnifying glasses (that is with prevalence at the heart of composition of cyclically repeating short sound fragments).

even if you will bring down all settings the program it is possible just to reinstall!
And for those who only just began to get acquainted with electronic music I advise to address the program - entertainment E - Jay . The program represents a set of the samples broken on styles from Hip - Hop to Techno. Your task consists in that to pick up sounds and to build them in a certain order, press Play and listen to the first track. Beautiful easy and interesting program. the Author of article began
