Question from subscriber:

I have been studying and researching music creation and recording and I have tried creating music with Fruity Loops 7 and Mixcraft 3 and I have come to the conclusion - for me anyway - is that I rather use a keyboard (one with a lot of instruments already programmed into it) and an electronic set of drum pads (one that has a lot of drums beats already programmed into it) to create my music rather than using a mouse. I will still use a mouse when necessary of course. I guess it will be about half and half.

What do you suggest? Also, into what recording program do I hookup these pieces of equipment to?

Keywords: Fruity Loops, FL Studio, Reason, propellerhead, Yamaha DJX, MIDI controller, M-Audio, Trigger Finger, Oxygen 8, Mixcraft 3, Music Software, Music Programs, MIDI, USB
