Just out of curiosity, if someone with zero experience is interested in learning how to make music, preferably digitally, what software would be best for that?
@Rheall depends on the kind of music you want to make and the tech you have available. I recommend LMMS for loop-based digital music, Ardour if there's more analog instruments involved and Rosegarden if you just wanna compose stuff and make sheet music
maybe an orba (hardware) ...
i think there's no surrogate for feeling comfortable with sounds
maybe a korg or a drum machine:
cheap hardware that you can carry around and just play with sound
my only suggestion is to think about what part of music-making are you most interested in: sound color, sound organization, rhythm, song writing, ...
(may be more than one)
maybe music is only a means to an end ...
follow that. trust your feelings. good luck.
