    I like the ACID series combined with the sound recording/altering software called Soundforge (this is where you would do your vocals if your track had your voice then place them in the track that you compose in ACID. If you ahve both programs running you can drag and drop and do tests without saving (plus UNLIMITED undo!) so if your latest edit isn't what you hoped just hit undo or drop the track back in Soundforge and undo and try something else.

    I haven't played with the programs in a while concentrating too much on sculpting but their sampler disks have good stuff. I'm not into the dance stuff but dark ambient/atmopheric and strange traditional instruments and nature sounds. You can open and alter any .WAV soundfiles culled from the web in Soundforge with numerous cool effects and save them for use in ACID (the composing software) so you can get tons of weird audio goodie bits online (google for free sound files or free wav samples).

    The PC has changed so much for home studio recording. I used to have half a room full of stuff. Now just the sampler CDroms, my big midi synth and the PC!

    Now I wanna get out the synth...!

    Oh yeah, best to also get yourself a D-Man or other input card device (probly has a cooler name nowadays) for your PC so that you can hook up a non-MIDI vocal microphone, 80s' sampler synths, TV, guitar or regular studio mixer (if recording live drums of from a non-midi electronic drumkit). Anyway, the D-man has all the classic analog studio instrument cord Jacks and the sound is tranformed into data when you play through it so that Soundforge (or other recording program) can record and alter it. I think the D-Man ran me about $150 at Guitar Center years back.

    I like Reason so far as sequencing, sampling and filtering goes. The composition tools in Reason are kind of lacking, though, so I like to use other utilities for actually writing my music. Definitely get yourself a card or an external input source, like swords says.
