    @danbo what are the stands you are using on the right of the first pic?

    Also, how do you find the height of the mouse and computer keyboard given they have to be higher than usual to clear the doepfer?

    @brett Samson stage stands. The X-Touch are the hardest to deal with, big, clumsy and the scribble strips have a narrow FOV (or angle of view maybe better) so you basically need to look at them straight on to be able to read them. They seem designed to fit on a stage stand though, the lip of the platform hooks into the bottom of the X-Touch so it's perfectly stable.

    On the height of the back platform it was a estimation that worked out. Getting the right height for the keyboard tray is easy. One, the tray is height adjustable, the stand is about a half or 1 inch too high so I have it pulled down to exactly where I want it. What I did is put the keyboard palm rest under the keyboard platform, that way it gives more stability to the keyboard platform as it rests on the Doepfer.

    The important thing with the height wasn't that but keeping it low enough so the monitors don't get too high. Especially since I have the 2" high document (sheet music) trays, which are on drawer tracks and can slide in and out of the way once you fold them down. Overall I'd prefer the monitors to be a bit lower, but then there's visual obscuring with the music props. Those two heights fight each other but I have a good enough compromise. I tried getting the X-Touch on there somehow but it doesn't work well.

    Anyhow IIRC I cut the legs for the back part to 8.5", 8" probably would have worked, but that puts the monitor feet at about 11"-12" above the desk I think.

    [​IMG]My keyboard sits on those 2 racks perfectly under my desk. Works like a charm and I can fiddle with the outboard gear without my head leaving the sweet spot.

    This is an older pic of my my studio desk. I no longer use these monitors. The top shelf can slide forward. I'm building a new studio as part of an addition. I plan to change my setup when I move to the new room.

    I recently bought this desk at Music Store in Cologne (awesome place btw). Its the LE version in case you're wondering. I bought an identical rack case for the left side, so I can have little bit more freedom for my legs. Desk is pretty big, which doesn't look so on the picture. The back of the rack housing is very easy to reach. All in all it's a real solid Mpex wooden desk 2×1 meters. 20180810_100111.jpg

    Some serious gear in there. Never was a fan for being shoved up to the wall though.

    Is no one working in surround here?

    Yup, just did a quick inventory for insurance. (the only time you wished your gear is worth LESS)

    Me neither but in my room it works the best for acoustics. I can't get 5-6 ft away from the wall so being as close to the wall as possible is my 2nd best bet.

    How'd you get the gunk off of the LSR4328Ps?

    Also what's with the little aux desk where nothing is plugged in?
