With the whole quarantine thing happening right now, I'm thinking about things to help preoccupy my time into something productive. A thing I have thought about doing for years was trying to make some music. I have no idea what the current state of music creation tools are, so what are some of the good ones?
I only have a Windows system, and I don't mind paying (some) money, so it doesn't have to be free. In terms of what type of music I'm interested in, the best way I can describe it is like electronic Mono or Godspeed You Black Emperor.
Also has anyone used Massive or anything from Native Instruments before? I remember reading this blog by Lena Raine about how they used their synthesizers to make the music in Celeste. (Not that I want to make music that sounds exactly like Celeste's soundtrack; I just remember that article because of how they broke down their process)
