Hardware/Software for electronic music


Hey there -
I'm looking to do some experimenting with electronic / dance music and would like to know what kind of software you might recommend for recording. I'm picturing a midi controller and some kind of software like what Reason did awhile back.
Here's the midi controller I've been thinking about: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/QX49?utm_source=none&utm_medium=PPC&utm_campaign=none&gclid=CPzw6qWH67ACFQ8KKgodWyt3vA
I'd like to stick to a budget of $400 or less for the hardware and software as this is something I'm only going to have a small amount of time to dedicate to.
If you need anymore info just let me know - completely new to this.
