Well idiots exist I am aware of that. But I find it hard to believe that an artist with any self respect to himself or his music would sell re encoded crap as flac.
But yeah it might exist..

Exactly Ekstasis - that was my point. Start small... and Mr. Rocket has already said he's leaning towards Mac which makes Garageband a perfect start.
I'm fairly positive it comes with an array of synths and effects to get started with.
Thanks for sharing VST are faster. It sounds like I can't use VST with Logic. How much slower are the AU's?
AU's being slower then VST's is total bullshit, there is no proof to this. I use AU's all the time with zero issues, they are just fine. Ekstasis is making that up because he doesn't like Apple products.
AND FINALLY: This is only semi-related. I've lately noticed a lot of people that use Live as their main DAW, and don't have Logic at all, who use the AU instead of the VST. All our recent products are built using Sonic Charge's Symbiosis compatibility layer, and the AU is just a VST with an extra layer of crap on top to make it act like an AU. With commercial plug-ins, it is very rare for the plug to be a true AU. Almost all commercial plugs use some sort of compatibility layer or wrapper to create the AU, and you are nearly always better off using the VST, given the choice between the two.
I imagine that the reasoning behind using an AU in Live is that people think "well, I'm on an Apple. The AU must be better!!!" This is false. The AU is never better. Ever. You might like the preset mechanism more, but as far as Live's presets go, this is a transparent experience to the user, and thus moot. The only reason you'd have for using an AU in Live is if you want to make presets there and then use them in Logic or DP, or vice-versa. If you don't do this, use the VST.
At this point I'm thinking possibly Logic, a Mac, VST, a midi mixer/controller and a midi keyboard.
Just to be clear, Logic doesn't use VSTs, but AUs or Audio Units. They are basically the same thing, but if you buy any third party plugins make sure they make AUs. I think most do now but better to check first before spending any hard earned cash.I most likely will start off simple and small and learn from there. I kind of get the feeling like, I could buy a bunch of expensive stuff that I might not use and simply be overwhelmed. Then forget about the important part, the enjoyment of creating music.
Smart move, learn what you have now, you can always add more when you feel the need. Good luck with your new creative path.
I'd rather listen to Steve talk about his music than read descriptions, self penned or not. Having had some in depth conversations with him back in the mid 90s, I was always impressed with his ability to describe the inspirations and feelings about the music, in a very intelligent, visceral, insightful and almost poetic way. His passion is really inspiring to hear. Maybe the website CD descriptions can get a little samey, but as pointed out, it's a difficult to describe genre of music. and I don't think there's any importance necessarily to sell or promote the music. His fans are fans and they're gonna buy it regardless of a written blurb.
Any thoughts on all these suggestions, 'Johnnyrocket' ?
Lots of solid advice here Johnny Rocket,
If I were really into soft synths as you suggest you aspire to be I would serious consider the NKS system. Native Instruments has a way of propelling everyone else into the future and their NKS platform may create a standard to come.
