    I want to make my own music. So any tutorials and best music making programs would be great. What would guys recommend and why? and how commonly used are the programs by users?

    I use FL Studio for music production.

    Its very easy to use and is n00b-friendly.

    I also recommend Virtual DJ, which is an awesome DJ mixing program.

    Agreed on starting with FL. By watching a few basic tutorials on YouTube you can learn the program within a day. Don't let the ease of use misguide you however, it's very powerful. I'm pretty sure it's the most used program as well (maybe not by pros but certainly by everyone else). I use Cubase myself but the interface is very different and some things might not look as logical when you come from FL.

    Just try out some patterns in FL and start mixing and matching. It's very fun to do and you'll be making full songs in no time
