Wow, I’m flattered you’d ask me personally.
Especially since there are doubtlessly more people on the board more qualified than myself to answer.
I work for a label, and while I have taken numerous other positions in my music biz tenure, I have no experience on the direct creation of music - only the marketing of it, to put it simply.
As such, I cannot help you. I have heard that recording music using software is best on a Mac, and I think that the software would therefore be limited in choices simple because a Mac doesn’t offer tons of applications for anything.
I would ask around. Also, you might want to lok into getting a four-track recorded. You can get a used one for a couple of hundred bucks that will serve as an excellent reference for demoing material and also learning the rudimentaries of production and engineering. They’re also fun!
Good luck in your endeavors, and I hope someone else here can better answer your question more directly!
