Get a dual/multi - core PC (x64) , / At least 4 gigs memory (preferably 16)
buy an audio interface (24 bits) , mixer and microphone from Behringer -
(They do some really high spec stuff, all ridiculously cheap).
Then get yourself a FREE MULTITRACKER, or DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)
- I use Tracktion - very much the musician's multitracker,
especially if you began back in the old analogue days.. I tried pretty much all of them.
I never got on with Cubase,and programs like Fruity Loops, Logic, etc. always seemed more designed
for electronic/dance music rather than for people who play actual instruments.
I haven't tried any of the free recorders below, but give them a try - they may be a better fit for you.
Here's a handy quick guide that might help. As ever - the real skill is deciding whether
you want to be a musician or a technician - be warned - the world of midi,
although a fantastic tool, can also be a huge 'rabbit-hole' -
I can think of at least one major band who were ruined by going down the
over-sampled, over polished pro-tools route.
Here are some other FREE MULTITRACKERS/DAWS on the web
PROCESSOR: iNTEL I3 6100 or ATHLON DUAL CORE
DRUMS: Behringer X8USB

it just depends what kind of music you want to make,
and you probably have a good idea already.

analogue style plugins for effects and production
then you can do a lot worse than starting with
