I have never produced music before and I really want to get into this but I am intimidated. I do not know how to use almost anything I want to make beats but I know no about the software. What recommendations do y'all have?

So the Groove3 Studio One tutorials are great at showing you around and the special little tricks that make working faster. There are a lot of them because the ones for 3.2, 3.3 etc are just as useful as the big ones so maybe just pay for a 7 or 15 day all access pass when you feel that you have a lot of time to dedicate to it and go through them all.
