Thank you sir.

We are just putting together arrangements with a 'partner' in Canada to have many of our designs built and shipped in the Americas. Wish me luck!

Cheers,
John

Massive dredge.

Has anything changed in the world of studio furniture? Any new companies to check out? Any best-practice guides in terms of speaker location/rack angles/etc ?

I'd like a producer desk (Ie. no large mixer involved) that's reasonably attractive, with easy access to rack units, has space for desktop units and a sensible arrangement of computer bits.

Buso do quite a lage range of stuff: https://busoaudio.com

We've recently put their Producer XL into our studio at work.

This is how to build one!

Very pleased with ours.

We've made a few holes for cable management, out of sight at the back, and they're not made of Weetabix!

Ours is black, (which is why you can hardly see it in the video) and it's a shame that the rackstrip it came with is not black too, but that's really a very minor point.

It's survived one term of student use with no sign of any problems that I'm aware of.

I used an Ikea desk (got for nothing) and made my own rack enclosures.. works a charm, and just as I want. The most expensive bit is the tolex for the cases.

I have one. The overall build quality is very good and it looks great, but the black paint finish is in parts wearing off, and I've only had the desk about a month!

Buso were good about it, and sent me a replacement part for where the paint was the most worn. The trouble is that now, the new part is showing signs of wear! They sent me a touch-up tool (a permanent felt pen, basically - a Holzmarker.)

But for disassembling and sending the entire thing back to Budapest, I think I will live with it (and get on with making music, hopefully)...

It's all just 'character' - you just need to knock the rest of your kit around a bit so that it looks the same... ;)
