My eldest has gone rogue from his guitar and rock upbringing and listens to EDM. He's expressed some interest in making his own, but none of us have much clue about what he needs. He suggested a midi keyboard to plug into a PC with Ableton or similar but I suspect there are other options.
I think he'd really like a bit of hardware with flashy lights and dials which he can use to trigger samples and stuff.
I'm just looking for some ideas thrown at me, there's a chance I'd spend a couple of hundred quid to get him started.
