Here is a screenshot of the software I started using a few months ago: Ableton Live. I will be avidly working on some original electronic compositions in the coming months. Ableton is a loop-based software music sequencer and DAW for OS X and Windows. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing and arranging. It is also used for mixing of tracks by DJs, as it offers a suite of controls for beatmatching, crossfading, and other effects used by turntablists, and was one of the first music applications to automatically beat match songs. It does not support traditional musical notation.
