Here's a (kinda blurry) picture of my setup:

Thanks Paul and Red! Getting used to just a few hours sleep again - I think we must be programmed to forget from the previous time!

To get back on topic, I am attaching a few quick snaps of my room - not an ideal shape, as I used to be in a studio in central London but the building was sold to develop as flats - so I grabbed the opportunity to set up and work from home!

Its quite ergonomic and I've got 8 realtraps up which tidy up the sound to a quite amazing degree..

Cheers!

Paul

Ok here's my humble setup, I make electronica entirely in the box.

I recently moved into a smaller room and thinking of changing my monitors to something more appropriate as they are too bassy for this place...

I'd LOVE one! For the oboe sample alone, I still hear it everywhere. It doesn't really sound like an oboe, but it sits so well in just about any mix, in any genre... You've got one? Can I borrow it?

Hehe. Just sold my 2500XS and 2500RS, so only have the PC88 left these days which has served me very well as m master keyboard for ten years. Built like tanks, gorgeous bits of kit.

You bet Red, I bought mine in 1999 in LA when I was doing the ASCAP workshop (I couldn't afford to buy a decent controller at the time over here!) and its still going strong!

I have never found a better action..

This is a very nice set-up... But how can you work like this? This is more of a rhetorical question, I'm sure you manage very well. However, how can you keep reaching across the keyboard to your controller, and not do your back out?

You see, studio ergonomics have been on my mind quite a bit, and the way most of us seem to work - or are forced to work - appears quite impractical. There is the inevitable fixture of the master keyboard (if, like most, you happen to work from a keyboard). Then there are the LCD monitors that get in the way of the monitor speakers - sonic reflections and all. Some also work with a control surface. Finally, there are the various bits and pieces of hardware.

It strikes me as odd that manufacturers seem to ignore how their stuff gets used in real life. They end up designing hardware that certainly looks nice in a showroom or in a catalogue, but by the time you have set it all up and connected, you realise your arms don't stretch long enough to reach everything comfortably. If, like me, you spend 10 or more hours at a time behind your keyboard, this gets to be a real concern. The point being, I think all control surfaces on the market - the decent ones anyway - are too deep. The master keyboards, too, are too deep, to be used in the way you do, which is in front of a control surface.

Why doesn't somebody built a controller that is only as deep as the faders, but almost as wide as a keyboard, so that one can reach everything easily? Would that be such an unreasonable request?

Having long arms helps.....


In all seriousness, the reaching is minimal - the PC88 is a VERY shallow master keyboard, and I tend to sit in fairly tight to the desk. Thus I can reach all of the MCP without moving, and only the very top of it requires me to stretch my arms to full extension. Likewise I sit there for hours upon end (it's my job after all) and I have been adjusting constantly for the past 12 years to find the "perfect" working environment... and this is about as close as I have ever got. In fairness, reaching up to the top level of the MCP is no worse than the top or bottom octave of the keyboard...

Well, for the first time in public, here it is:-



Notice how much space I save by having a concertina for a MIDI controller instead of a keyboard. Note also that although there are screens, keyboard, mouse and interface for a computer there is no actual computer. Since I only use it for mix down it spends most of its time elsewhere.

Nice, is that a recent pic?

But seriously (and I *am* serious now, even though I had way too much Heineken yesterday - my apologies to the mods for OT post ), since most of us work in a very similar fashion, I would have thought that, by now, the main manufacturers of master keyboards would have come up with an option to have transport controls and faders integrated into the keyboard. Wouldn't that make a lot of sense, ergonomically? Every keyboard I can think of has so much wasted space to the left and right of the main controls, easily enough for implementing transport buttons, scrub wheel and faders.

Yes, that's an Aeron chair. They're around £800.00 new but you can pick them up secondhand on eBay for about £350.00. That chair has since been moved to my study as I now have a green leather KAB ACS chair in the Studio. Cost me £900.00 but I sit in it all day, every day so it's money well spent!

You can't beat those Herman Miller Aeron chairs.

They are vented for your bottom end.... ;-)

(seriously though - we have them at work, and I don't think I've ever sat on a more comfortable chair).

Most definitely, your back will thank you for it.

I found that it's really down the firmness of the foam. It must be firm enough to not give way after hours of use, yet soft enough to be comfortable. Most types of foam won't last very long. Don't laugh, but I am seriously considering getting one of those medical silicon gel cushions for my piano chair. You know, made from a material similar to that in wrist rests.

Aye likewise my chair was around £1k, a HAG as it happens, but when you're sat in it for 20hrs a day on a commission it suddenly becomes the best money you've ever spent!

Dug this thread up because I've just finished mine:



Needs a couple more acoustic panels for the side walls, and I've not been bothered my arse with bass trapping as our house is on the market

wonder where fingerpicker (the bloke who started all this) has got to these days?

No pix of my studio as it is permanently in a state of change and also because it looks like a total tip most of the time.

But I am now down to 3 PCs, an Amiga 1200, the A&H GS3V, two Fosted D90`s, Tannoy System 6`s with a Quad 405 and a pile of outboard for the actkchewul recording bit.
Have recently crammed a semi=home made edrum kit in there as well.
PCs have Emu cards well 2 do and the third one I am trying to sort out something cheap that will run ADAT lightpipe to replace the elderly Gina in it at present.
Embarrassingly I am now up to 5 monitors.
And I only use the PCs for VSTis!!


Forgot to say the PCs are networked and the glue that holds all the MIDI stuff together is a wonderful old Akai ME80P.

Even manages to talk to my Amiga, the hard disk recorders AND the desk at the same time.

Me? But I`m such a loveable old bugger!
