I’m looking to get a new workstation desk and could use some suggestions. Nothing huge, just enough for my midi keyboard, pod, babyface pro and couple flat screen monitors. I’m leaning towards this https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/WS7500Black
Any other suggestions?January 28, 2018 at 6:00 pm #29394
Any other suggestions?
No offense, but it looks poorly made. As well, you will need Speaker Stands, and a Keyboard stand. I would not suggest putting your Keyboard on that lower surface..
1) Have you tried your local Craigslist to see if someone has a “Music, Midi/Control Surface Workstation Stand”?
2) Have you tried Ebay?
I think you can get something really nice, and more to suit your needs if you think about “Pre-owned” (like that a lot better than saying second hand.lol)January 28, 2018 at 8:57 pm #29395January 28, 2018 at 10:05 pm #29396
Check out https://omnirax.com/technical/products/prostation-jr/. I’ve had this for years and it’s held up really well. A bit pricey though and I would change the configuration to a flat top (for dual monitors) instead of a cutaway.January 29, 2018 at 6:32 am #29397
give the Presto by Omnirax a look: https://omnirax.com/technical/products/presto-bundle/
top shelf for wide or dual monitors and speakers; rack spaces for preamp, etc; and storage on the bottom for firewire drives, sustain pedaletc. And very compact.January 29, 2018 at 7:37 am #29398

That’s the one I got when building my new studio four years ago.January 29, 2018 at 7:53 am #29399
+1 for Platform by Output. I have it and you can literally stand on it.January 29, 2018 at 8:31 am #29400
Thanks for the suggestions everyone.January 29, 2018 at 8:44 am #29402
If you can afford it, IMO, nothing beats the Sterling Modular offerings unless you custom build something. Even then, it would be tough to make something better/cheaper. My finish work carpenter was even blown away by the design.
They are customizable, an ergonomic masterpiece, and sonically angled to avoid standing waves and reflections in what is arguably the most important piece of hardware (sonically) in your studio. One of the reasons they are found in so many mastering facilities.
I don’t like their “silver” / modern stock design. For a few hundred more, I did mine in african rosewood, and it’s spectacular….February 1, 2018 at 5:07 pm #29426
I have this one. The price has dropped several hundred dollars since I bought it several years ago

That is a nice one Alan. I might have to get rid of my Omnirax for that.February 1, 2018 at 7:46 pm #29428
