    Default Sit or Stand?

    So, as the title suggests, in your "bedroom" setups, do you guys have it set up so that you are sitting down, or standing up while playing with your equipment?

    I've seen various things with both, and I'm interested to see what people say. I imagine more people stand than sit, but we'll see.

    DJ'ing is a stood standing job. Preping your tracks/creating edits/etc... is a sat sitting job.

    Both, usually standing when I'm doing my show, but sitting the rest of the time. I have a tall stool I'll use sometimes.

    Most of the time I stand, the problem is that I got some back problems that force me after a while to sit down a little. At home I got a big, fluffy armchair in my "booth", but when I'm at a gig, I usually ask for a stool or something similar.
    I think one day I gotta get one of these: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002UD53KC?ie=UTF8&tag=pbmo-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creative ASIN=B002UD53KC"]Amazon.com: Technical Pro DJ CHAIR Portable DJ Chair (Black): Musical Instruments@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31uGlaAStBL.@@AMEPARAM@@31uGlaAStBL[/ame].

    EDIT: I didn't know that the board does something like above with Amazon links and I don't know what to think of it.

    Depends. I sit while managing tracks and mapping controllers, most of the time. I've done house parties sitting (or kneeling on the floor) where there wasn't a table high enough.

    Basically, I'd rather stand than sit, but more so I'd rather sit than hurt my back.

    Oh yeah, and not all of my stuff fits on my "DJ Furniture." I'm enjoying Traktor so much, I might move my Ableton stuff to my desk.
