Gabe outlines how to get a solid foundation, and tips on what you need to get started producing electronic music. The first thing to learn is some fundamentals of music theory, what makes music sound good, because without it all the expensive tech and software in the world won't help you make good music. Where you will be spending most of your time as a producer is in the synthesizer, so having some base understanding of what you can do, will help. Finally listen to and learn from other producers, then get into your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and start making music. Just like any type of music, you will get better the more you do and it will become more intuitive.
