The right setup really depends a lot on what kind of stuff you want to write and what instruments you play, if any.

I’m big fan of bundles like this because they get you familiar with a typical recording setup – keyboard, mic, speakers, headphones and software. Presonus is a great company with amazing customer support. The program Studio One is pretty okay for getting started, but I personally suggest people start with Ableton Lite due to how intuitive it is. It’s just hard to find bundles with keyboards (which I find to be a pretty necessary item in starting to make music, especially EDM) that include Ableton. You also have the option to piece together hardware and software, which is still a good way to do it, just a little harder to navigate if you don’t know what you’re doing, given how many options there are out there for each thing.

It all really depends on what you’re trying to do, though. If you don’t ever see yourself using a microphone, you could go for a good bundle with only a keyboard and software and then getting a decent set of monitors or headphones. If you don’t ever see yourself using a keyboard, like only doing guitar stuff, you could get a good sound card, mic and software bundle. It all just depends! I’d be happy to help, in any case. I love getting people set up to record. I know Hoffman has some Presonus bundles and they can probably order something if they don’t have it. Also, they definitely have stuff to piece together a good studio setup, depending on what you’re looking to do.
