First step is to give up if you haven't got the time. It takes years. You'll just end up frustrated and giving up anyway unless you can commit copious amounts of time to learning everything.

If you do want to get into it then Reason is a good place to start as it contains everything you need, but you might need to upgrade to a newer version to get some of the better stuff it now contains like the record mixer etc.

Look on Youtube for boyinaband. He's really annoying, but knows his shit and uses Reason for almost everything.

Start with the stickies at the top of this forum.

Groove3 has very good tutorial series that will get you up to speed in Reason (and countless other software titles) in just hours, reasonably priced, too.

But, I think one of the best things you can do is shut the door, tune out the world, and get lost in your gear/software.

Seriously, upgrade Reason, if you're going to continue. It's miles more developed, now.

Evaluate your DAW before you buy/upgrade anything. Decide what you need out of the software and use trial versions.

Ableton is nice. Other DAWs are nice, shop around, and make sure what you have is what you want in this day n' age.

Doesn't matter where you start, just as long as you do.
