    Studio help needed.. good compact keyboard stand/computer desk?

    I'm wondering if you guys have any suggestions for a good desk that's holds a 76-key keyboard (or 88) and a keyboard/mouse, LCD monitor, studio monitors, etc.? Like this:

    http://www.frontendaudio.com/Product...e=7272&click=7

    I've got a very small space.. just a 10'x10' room. Currently I have a very tiny computer desk and a keyboard stand separate. The problem is that the monitors I want (Event Studio Precision 8) won't fit on my desk at all.. and there's not much room for them anywhere else. (they measure 16"H x 12.5"W x 11.875"D)

    I'm looking for an all-in-one solution here.. something that holds my keyboard, as well as computer keyboard & mouse, LCD monitor (20" widescreen), and two studio monitors. It would be nice if the computer case fit somewhere, but under the desk on the floor or to the side is OK.

    Any suggestions?

    Don't have it yet - but on order...

    Plus you can rack mount a lot of stuff on it - though not as many as advertised I hear.(like 14 on each side not 20) - big deal ...lol

    A lot cheaper too. I have the same problem with monitors (computer not audio). I have to switch to LCD's.

    Man, I dunno.. looking at the photos, I just don't see how a MIDI keyboard would fit on that thing. It doesn't look like there's enough room as far as depth goes. But I dunno, photos sometimes don't do the actual product justice. Let me know how it is once you get it.

    Thanks!

    I will as soon as I get it - back ordered

    The description says it holds an 88 key keyboard, and the mesurements add up.(Though it would render the top pullout useless). You're right though, my controller is pretty slim so I know it will fit...but some boards might be too fat in the back.

    Is this too big for you?

    Yeah, it seems you'd have to remove that top part.. see image below:



    I drew the line in red.. it doesn't look deep enough to accommodate a MIDI keyboard.. unless it's a very small one. So you could remove that top tier, but then where the heck are you gonna put your studio monitors??

    Er..probably too big and too pricey Plus, the computer keyboard looks like it might be too high. I do MOSTLY typing on the computer keyboard.. that would have to be at an ergonomic height. The MIDI keyboard would be a bit higher.. like in the desk unit Brian mentioned.

    As pictured: $2,979.85Free Shipping! That's probably money well spent though.

    Yea it's going to depend on your controller. I'll see if I can find that measurement.
