    Need help getting started in making music.

    I have 0 idea where to start.
    When I made a thread in music and sound no one responded, so I am posting this here.
    Any ideas or helpful guides on getting started?
    PS: I want to make insane speedcore and breakcore.

    It would sure help with you have a musical history of playing instruments like Piano or Violin.
    I also recommend at least familiarizing yourself with music theory.

    I don't.
    I will probably just sample the vocals from didn't shows and things I like.
    Here is a good example.

    Juggling music theory, Japanese, and doing voice acting too?
    This is going to be a fun summer, lol.

    What's VST?
    What Google is saying, it sounds like DAW.

    I don't want my music to sound like it was made by a 10 year old.

    If you don't understand the difference between Digital Audio Workstation and Virtual Studio Technology then you either A) need to do a crap ton more reading or B) give up. It takes years to make quality music. General rule of thumb is 10,000 hours of learning and creation before you know what you're doing.

    I told you that I am starting from ground zero.
    That's why I made this thread, not to be flooded with terms you assume that I know.
    I have no idea where to do said reading, so I was asking you guys.
