How can I achieve this sound?

Hey guys and gals,

General question, I'm rather new to this, but this is the type of sound I'm going for... can you recommend hardware (and software for Mac) which would make me best able to create the sound in this clip? I love this so much, it's the type of music I want to create for sure, I just don't know where to start, seems simple enough. Any particular synthesizer needed? Software? Etc...

Thanks ahead of time:

Ambient music? Any DAW + softsynth + whatever reverbs and delays come with that DAW. You basically need a computer for hardware. Maybe some samples to stretch and effect if you want to get really crazy.

Thanks!!! I was about to buy/rent some equipment, but if something like FL12 will suffice, I'll just go with that.

Absolutely. Give it a shot.

I'll mention that you shouldn't be afraid to stack multiple reverbs and delays on top of one another to get those sounds. Those long, slow, plaintive sounds are usually the result of a single note or chord with tons of multi-stage echo allowed to ring out.

A good place to start would be something like this: (made for Ableton but applicable in pretty much any DAW)
