    Hello, I am a "hobbyist" composer/producer/sound designer from Australia. I'm currently doing a lot of self-directed study in the fields composition, music production and orchestration - as well as game and app development and composition for games, film and theatre.

    My question is - and apologies as I don't know which forum to post this question - is there a forum, sticky or thread here with a starting point for a newbie to learn the actual V.I. control aspect of the process?

    I've been devouring the orchestration tips and discussions but I guess I'm looking for something more related to the actual MIDI implementation than orchestration generally - the basic techniques for using sample libraries to emulate the orchestra.

    Hello Haptic:

    What digital workstation do you use? If you use Reaper (or if you're open to it's use), then head over to the Reaper forum and ask away: They'll give you Reaper-specific tips that can be very useful.
    https://www.reaper.fm/

    Alternatively, if you're using a specific library (say, Kontakt for example), you can go to the native instruments forum and ask away:
    https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/

    Finally, their's a 'Technique' subforum right here:
    http://vi-control.net/community/forums/composition-orchestration-technique.13/

    Enjoy!
