    Default Beginner and budget setup - Recommendations?

    I am thinking about using Logic Pro X as I am used to Apple products and this is my first time trying to do production, so I don't know which instrument should I be getting, such as MIDI controller or keyboard, or even Ableton Push?

    Just a gear essential for beginner, I don't wanna start a huge setup as I don't know if I am doing this for a long term. So, used instruments for low budget beginners should work. and something that I really need for the start-up.

    Cheers!

    You don't need anything but software to begin. Most DAWs will come with at least a few instruments, drum machines, and effects.

    if you're going to make melodies, maybe a cheap small MIDI keyboard to play out notes an chords. Otherwise, you can just use the default plugins and sound samples that Logic comes with to muck around with.
