    Start of messing around with garageband, and perhaps move on to Reason or Frooty Loops, and if you get a lot more serious, then Logic or Ableton Live.
    Garageband is the only free one, good music programs are generally quite expensive.

    I assume i'm not allowed to reccomend pirate/cracked software on these forums?

    ^ If that is the case then the pirates are all very bad and will come and steal your soul.
    Or something.

    Garageband is a good program if your just messing around with loops. If you wanna upgrade, I would recommend soundtrack(because it has a loop editor where you can make your own loops) or Ableton Live.

    Ableton Live & Reason seem too complicated, and I dont think there is a Fruity Loops for Mac, and soundtrack doesnt seem to fit me, is there anything else that I can try ???

    so GB is too simple but Ableton is too complicated? Hmmm sounds like you want something that is actually going to do the work for you.

    ableton is the only way to go IMHO... If it's too complicated for you the I don't know how you are going to create something to "the standards you are looking for"...

    If you take a couple of hours to go through the tutorials and watch some youtube videos you'll catch on pretty quick.

    try reason.....then rewire it to ableton. no matter what you chose, there's a pretty big learning curve if you're looking to produce quality, original music and are new to the home studio genre.

    your mac is an awesome tool, but it cant do all the work for you......
