Curious what other sites you guys use as resources.  Forums, chat rooms, facebook groups?  Obviously gearslutz though I find the size a bit unwieldy at times.

https://vi-control.net is a good site for virtual instruments.

They also have a discord server where a few of us Sonar/Bandlab/Cakewalk users hang out:

What else?

I used to frequent Northern Sounds, but can't post there anynore for some reason. It's turned into a small club for Garritan users anyway and is probably not long for this world.

Also used to hang out on the Ning Composers Forum, which has become so sanitized it is totally boring. Mostly notation-oriented folks. It was exciting when they tolerated some naughtiness, but the new owner has squelched that. 

I feel the need for a place that lets you let your hair down a bit. Been thinking about gearslutz, may do that.

I can't log in there anymore... Forgot my password but the e-mail address I used to register there, one I had for over fifteen years, was compromised and so I can't reset... I suppose I could pester Ed or Bob but I feel like I'm being a bit of a PITA...

 

Place I hang out the most nowadays is https://www.ambientonline.org/ but I can't see anyone here being interested in that, you mostly being rock/pop/country peeps.

Since I write aftermarket style 'disks' and fake 'disks' for Band-in-a-Box, I frequent the PG Music/Band-in-a-Box forum daily http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?lang=english

Although I play 7 instruments (8 if you count voice) sax is my primary instrument so Ialso go to Sax On The Web a lot https://forum.saxontheweb.net/forum.php

Wind Synthesizer is a spin-off from sax so I go here a few times a week http://www.patchmanmusic.com/forum

Harmony Central is another stop for me https://www.harmonycentral.com/forum/

Since I bought my Parker guitars, I hardly play my Gibson or Epiphone anymore, but after years of frequenting the Gibson forum, I have a lot of on-line friends there so I still go, mostly to post in the 'lounge' area http://forum.gibson.com/

Parker guitars went out of business and the forum isn't very active, but I still stop by once or twice a week http://forums.parkerguitars.com/index.php?action=login

I used to go to a few Facebook pages, but I don't like the way they do business so I quit and deleted my data.

If I need help on Carvin, Yamaha, Roland, MOTU, Ketron, or any other gear I own, I'll go to their forums until my problem is solved, but I don't frequent them.

That about does it for me.

Thanks for that link. Lately I've been interested in making spacey type videos for my music and I see there's some discussion at that site about software I could try. Gonna check it out.

Hiya Bjorn, I look forward to hearing you do some spacey stuff, and when you do, join up there and post a link. I am not going to be active in the songs forum here as, at this moment in time, I am not using any Bandlab software.

 

cheers,

andy 🙂
