    Default Building a Production Desk ?

    Hey guys,

    Im moving soon to a new student apartment, and am planning to get my stuff a little bit more organized.

    My equipment is as follow:

    Motu Ultralite interface
    49keys midi keyboard
    Maschine
    iPad with Lemur
    macbook pro + external 22" Screen
    2 monitors
    some desktop synth modules of small size.

    now, I'd love something similar to this desk
    http://www.musicstore.de/de_DE/EUR/P...REC0011240-000

    but the price tag is just too high for a student. Do you have any ideas of whether I can soldier something out of lets say, different Ikea parts or so? Something that wouldnt break my bank...

    I dont need Rack-compartments, as I dont have any rack modules, but definitely want my Monitors and screens to be positioned on a higher level, eye-ear level.

    hmmm ?

    The Jerker was a beast! They still pop up on ebay every now and again...

    this Jerker looks quite nice, but very narrow. If I put a 49key kbd, it will pretty much take the whole space on the desk. I really need to have maschine at a hand-reach, my iPad and planning to soon invest into Push as well... so I need some more space :/

    How will you ue Maschine & Push? For my money, it would be either one or the other?

    Just interested...

    I ran out of space for Maschine too (using a Jerker-style desk from IKEA). So I got a snare drum stand for like $20 and used that. Actually works really well, because it's right at hand drumming level.

    I use a djembe for push. I have a korg poly 61m and it fits perfectly across the jerker's shelf.

    Why a Jerker...? Vika Amon does the trick for me.
