Meeting other Midiguitar/Bass users to experiment with functions

This may not be the right place to ask this question. I would like to spend some time with other users of the programs we have to swap ideas and experiment with various technical options , either for live performance or recording music in DAW’s. I live in the Scottish Borders, on the west side, near the towns of Biggar, Peebles, Lanark. I play guitar, bass, a little keyboards and also have an electronic drum kit. I use both Mac and Windows computers with Midiguitar and Midibass on both. I also have quite a selection of midi controllers and gadgets. I keep thinking that I could be making better use of all of these things but just need to find people of similar mind to experiment further.
