VI-Control is a free community with online forums and a Discord server that gathers musicians to discuss all things virtual instruments. 

This community gathers producers, engineers, composers, sample library developers, and recording artists. They work in diverse mediums such as film, multimedia, television, radio, and the recording industry. VI-Control has an online forum that helps composers develop their abilities to build their careers and perfect their craft.

Inside the forum, you will find different sections to discuss diverse topics. These include virtual instruments, sample libraries, sample players, VST/VI synths, studio production, composition, notation, orchestration, and more.

Additionally, the forum is a great place to share advice and tips on building a music career. Moreover, you will find classifieds and a job board to find your next career opportunity and buy/sell music gear. Lastly, the forum also has an off-topic section for you to share interests and hobbies with others, and talk about topics non-related to music.
