First off, I'd like to say that I'm a PC guy, just to get that out of the way. But, since Macs are more adept at multimedia tasks (and the software I'm considering is dual-compatible) I'm going to ask the Mac crowd. I'm interested in getting into computer-based music production (emphasis in techno), but am not sure which software package to use. I have 14 years training in classical piano with concurrent music theory, and have had a bit of experience with 2D and 3D rendering programs, so I'd like to think that I can adapt quickly to multimedia interfaces. Currently, I'm looking at Fruity Loops Studio (unlikely, since it's a less versatile program), Cubase SX 2, Reason, and Cakewalk's suite. Any preferences or suggestions for additional choices? It'd be best if I can get some pros and cons of each.
