Trying to get your Lex Luger on, eh? I use Ableton, and I'd say the learning curve was respectable. You need alot of patience when using DAWs, but if you're creative and diligent all your hard work will pay off. They're more useful than trying to learn actual instruments, sadly lol.

There's also:

Reason
Logic Pro
Fruity Loops
Pro Tools
GarageBand

garageband is for talentless faggots.
fl studio aka fruity loops is probably the most noob friendly.
and the others dude mentioned are straight.

What he said.

Fruity Loops has one of the most user friendly interfaces for beginners.

Good luck.

Well before you go diving into samples, learn about drum patterns. It won't take you long but when you're done you're going to be happy you did. Good drums can make/break a beat no matter what sample you find.

I personnally dont fuck with sampling.
Id suggest learning piano and chord progressions they'll help you alot.
Just my opinion tho.

really it depends on what you're trying to do. I'm sure you have some sense of the kind of beats you want to make, so the next step is to figure out what setup is best for what you're going for, ie if you want to sample, get Maschine, but if you want a whole lot of crazy sounds to fuck around with, get Reason.
