From what I've seen. Garageband is a good starter program. Ableton is for advanced musicians. Traktor and VDJ are DJ programs, they wont make music. I've tried VDJ and it's pretty easy to use. As for Traktor, I've never used it so I can't give an opinion.

As you see, Virtual DJ is nice to start with. A typical mixer interface with some effects. Traktor has more options and I frequently see professional DJs using it.
Some nice options Virtual DJ has that Traktor don't have are the beatgrid bars on top, Traktor uses seperated windows. And when using the Loop option, you can easily shift the loop with a button, with Traktor you have to set the loop again.
Overall, my opinion: start with Virtual DJ with your keyboard and mouse. When you want something more advanced try Traktor or another good piece of software.

lets see, im assuming you have a mac since you use garage band.
now garageband is basically logic lite. i suggest moving on to that once you feel you hav progressed enough.
personally, i still haven't been able to come to grips with abletons interface as compared to FL studios. so im probably no the best person to talk to about that.
anyway, as for traktor vs vdj, i find that traktor seems to win in terms of sound quality, if you pitch up a song up or down in virtual DJ seems to be a bit....off, and you can use MIDI in vdj, as i have mapped some of the sliders and whatnot on my axiom 49 to act as crossfaders and such.
but in the end, it all boils down to personal preference, after all, they made umbrella with a garage band loop.

I started using FL Studio 9. Then I got a mac.. Now I use Ableton Live. I think it's pretty difficult to use, so I am using my old PC to make music in FL Studio lol (:we did not choose to become robots. there was an accident in our studio. we were working on our sampler, and at exactly 9:09 a.m. on september 9, 1999, it exploded. when we regained consciousness, we discovered that we had become robots.

i started off in GB, then I got tired of not being able to do what I wanted to, so I moved on to ableton. The learning curve of ableton isnt as bad as many people say, and I was able to pick it up in about a week. I would just take the time, and initiative, to learn ableton from the get go, as it is the most powerful, and the abilities are pretty much endless
