    Default What controller/ laptop stands do you use?

    I don't have any stands for my gear, and i'm looking at purchasing some, because it just looks bad and is annoying having to bend over like the hunchback of notre dame to mix using my midi controller (see photo)



    so i was wondering how you all have your midi controllers and laptops setup to be ergonomically friendly? And also which stands do you use?

    after looking at several, i settled on

    http://store.roadreadycases.com/dyn_prod.php?p=RRFSSS

    and already feel it was the best purchase for my needs. people say it isn't that mobile, but it breaks down into 2 large plates, 1 center cylindrical stand, and 1 serato plate.

    the kicker - the website had some database / pricing problem and they were selling it for $79.99 for the last couple of weeks. glad to see i got it just in time.

    definitely worth the price, the thing is rock solid.

    Your still going to be bent over to use the controller. Might look at getting a flight case to set everything on top of and to raise the controller.

    I put the computer at least on a milk crate or something similar. Even a cardboard box. I always have a hanging, like a batik, with me to drape over the box. It's a little thing but makes the DJ table look much better!

    I'm kicking myself for not picking up a Crane stand when I was at DJ TechTools... Currently I use a Rain M-stand from the apple store, sturdy as hell but not very portable.

    Next time I get anything from the store, I'll get the Crane for the lappy and then put the VCI on the Rain. For house parties it will be the business and elevate my equipment from the beer floods (been lucky so far).

    I really like the look of the Uberstand, but every time I think about getting one I'm irked by how rickety it feels. Just picturing my lappy swaying in the breeze freaks me out.

    P.S. Excellent shot of you rockin' the Spin. It's for situations like that one that I picked one up. Really pleased so far. Does your lappy get hot in that hard case?

    Most of the time I have my lappy on my crane stand and my vci underneath

    I usually bring something to elevate my controller though, like my bio textbook

    But when the opportunity comes along that I can put my laptop on something elevated, I put my controller on my crane stand
