Does anybody know a good music making software? Right now I'm using two songs from Jets N guns. Machinae Supremacy made both, and right now they're the best I've got.

I use noteworthy composer a lot. And I found that MidiMaker (Which everyone seems to hate) combined with audacity lets you create nice music with the effects of pitch sliding and crescendo\decrescendo etc..

I used Garageband and Logic for Satan Sam, Pineapple didn't do any tracks for that. I think he's using Cakewalk for the Tormi tracks though, with some of the earlier ones being done in Logic (and originally for another game anyroad). I'm using Logic for Tormi.

Logic is pretty damn good. I hate it to record my real music with it tho, and it's pretty expensive.
At the moment I use a combination of Logic, Cakewalk guitar studio, Synthfont and Cooledit pro for game music. Which is a drag.

ooer, people talking about me I suppose now is as good a time as any to come out of the woodwork. My weapons of choice are cakewalk sonar producer edition and audacity for Pc and if i ever get my hands on a mac again it'll be logic pro (whatever version they have now).

i'm a bit ominous about garageband and fruity loops and all really they strike me as being too "beginner package" for my liking... ooh look at me being music software lord snooty!

And MMF doesn't strike as being too "beginner package" for your liking?

Bitcrusher effect on Garageband and Logic is ace for that. Sometimes it's great to work on a realistic sounding orchestral track then throw that into individual channels for some funnage

Orchestra is awesome. Right now I use Mixcraft, however I haven't used it in a while. It's loop based so it's pretty limited. Here's some Music I made. It's not great but it's what I've got.

If your starting out in music, I would say FLoops is the best choice, aslong as you got some good VST plugins. I use FLoops, even though I work with better audio software at my college, at home, I can turn out a good music of game music in about a few hours.

I'm using milky tracker, wich is a free software.
http://www.milkytracker.net/

Unlike fruityloops and others, it doesn't come with a librairy of instruments. You load or create a wav file, edit it, and save it as an instrument. It's mainly made to do 8-bit type music.

I personnaly prefer the tracker type of interface because it's easier to find yourself, and this one lets you change volume pitch and all for every notes.

It's a real professional software, wich you should give a try to.

Well I'm not sure I can show anyone results. First off My drum set is in another room, and there's no computer in that room, even though there USED to be... It be nice if we got another mic, but the only mic we've got kinda sucks, and it's in my sis' room. The only instrument to actually record (Very badly, indeed. ) Is my sis' guitar, which is something I don't even know how to play. -_- along with THAT, the mic is just a FEW inches away from the guitar. It'd be nice to have a.. say... a pre-sonus firebox or such, But those are way too expensive for me.
