I joined Youtube in 8th grade for the sake of music. I have always loved music, and I don't think I will ever stop. I downloaded Mixcraft when I was in 11th grade. It is a software for recording and making music. I learned as much about it as I could, but I did not really get too much out of it. in 12th grade I downloaded FL studio (fruityloop studio) and I found much more success with it, as did a good friend of mine. My friend had found FL studio after being referred to it from Epic Rap Battles of History and Deadmau5. A software that I had downloaded since 9th grade I found an exceedingly large amount of use from; a software called Audacity. Audacity was used by me to fix Youtube videos and songs that I downloaded with a Youtube to mp3 ripper (completely legal when it is done to any video, or song that isn't copyrighted) I edited out any background noise or awkward beginnings/endings to songs that were posted onto Youtube.
I have done much with software/hardware, but in a society built by media it is necessary to be a part of it somehow.
