I use Sonar, currently, in so much as I can say I use anything. But I haven't a clue what I'm doing. How did you all learn what exactly all these various features do? The only tutorials I can find suppose that I already know the basics, which I don't. I can hardly even get a midi track to play sounds with a VST, since I'm not entirely sure what all these various drop-down boxes do.
Are there any forums/websites/etc that I may use in order to learn how exactly this stuff works?
I've been interested in taking my compositional knowledge away from the piano, I'm just unsure as to how I should get started.
