    This is probably as simple as Edm can get. ( daws )

    Things that will matter most:
    music theory is everything involved with music period even electrical stuff.
    Computer with 2ghz or above, no core 2 duos, no atoms, no AMD below an A6 and no pentium below a pentium G series unless no midi devices are going to be used.

    You obviously have access to a computer. Is it yours? Then start with what you have.

    You will also need a DAW or beat making software. You can start with a free one.

    Free DAW Software! (Digital Audio Workstations) | BPB

    They are not super sophisticated but more than enough to get started and make your first beats;-)

    First of, learn music theory, then get an DAW, ( Make sure you learn your DAW before you produce )
    Once you get better, maybe grab yourself a nice USB MIDI Piano, And other MIDI devices

    I'd say "research".

    Use youtube to search for popular creation software basic tutorials, such as Reason, Fruity Loops, Ableton, Logic Pro...


    Look at how people use these tools, and see if you are able to set your mind on one to use. The way they look, the way to work with them, the things some can do that others can't....That kind of research.

    At some point you will end up with a feeling that you want to try one of these and go for it.


    Then, keep practising, keep learning, and improving.

    At some point, invest in a MIDI Keyboard.
    Then, a good audio interface, and then, maybe a good set of monitors...

    But before all of that, you must find a software to use, and then practice your composition skills.

    Luckily you live in the internet era so it's really easy to research using Youtube, Google and Forums, just follow tutorial videos, learn a bit of music theory and find software you're comfortable with learning, good luck!

    Try FL Studio, I think it's one of the main DAW for EDM or Logic Pro if you are Apple user.
