since you mentioned Cakewalk, I'll assume for a moment that you own a
computer. let the list know if it is PC or MAC, for there are many software
apps out there for both platforms that would work for you. I know, for I
have a very small studio (and i'm usually one broke mofo), and i do
everything 90% of the time on my old PC... but it works.

Cakewalk is an excellent program if you want to work with midi. Or Cubase
for that matter. But do you want to do it all on the computer or utilize a
keyboard, drum machine, phrase sampler, etc....

let me know. I run and test PC programs all the time, so if you are on a PC
platform i can probably help. if you don't want to clutter the list too you
can email me at
