I love this thread going like "how do I make industrial music?" that always boils down to "what exactly is industrial music?"...
Beat or no beat? Who gives a fuck (as RI said)... I also dig this idea of using synths NOT designed for beats to create semi-random beats or rhythmic oscillations (that's how my fave dinosaurs of the early 70s did beats, using the arpeggiators of their modular synths)...
I'll say (again) that the first step to making industrial music is BUY & LISTEN TO A LOT OF RECORDS and this answer is going to (again) degenerate into what Art is in the first place.
Anyway, to answer the original question, links to software always is: http://www.kvraudio.com
- I'd say that software is like ice cream, everyone is going to explain why his fave flavour is THE flavouryou should like but you'll like your own fave ;-) names anyway: sony acid & ableton live (these would be my first choices for a total beginner), fruity loops, reason, any sequencer like logic or cubase.
And if you're into hardware, buy a secondhand groovebox (MC-505, ESX/EMX 1, e-mu's if you're rich)
yeah, well. Just a thread we've all seen a zillion times before.
