I'm a German Producer and Rapper
Used to play drums and trying to learn Piano right now. But most of the time I just try things and see if they sound good and work out in my project.
Audacity - best free program there is.
FL Studio 12
Some good speakers by Teufel but there more for watching movies actually, but they still do their job for music producing.
novation Launchkey 61, though I don't really use it that much-.
Everything except for maybe german folks music 'cause fuck that shit.
808 & Heartbreak
Pretty much everything I listen to.
