    Default How can I start?

    Hi guys,
    I know that I am probably going to get a bit of hate for this but I am pretty new to this. I was just wondering what I should do. I want to make videos on YouTube of me creating music using pads ( Shawn wasabi for example). I am not sure what sort of equipment I would need to start, whether it is just a midi fighter and a computer with the software, or if I need a mic and other things to record my own sound packs etc.

    I have already done a bit of research but I still don't know what the best thing to do is.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    With daily practice, youll be a good year away from putting anything worthwhile up on youtube. Focus on actually being good at music before broadcasting it.

    also, google.

    Hey thanks for the reply,

    I know I would be along way from producing like Shawn does. However I could easily take up finger drumming as I am already a drummer. I would like to know what equipment I would need to get started so I know how much it is. If you could answer this thanks so much.

    Technics? I'd say it shouldn't be on the list. You're either buying second hand, or paying through the nose for a turntable that's bad for scratching.
