I really love your new setup man! It's gorgeous and there's something inspiring about the minimalism compared to how it used to be.

Really curious to know what racks you are using on the wall to fit so many large/heavy synths so conveniently like this! I would live to know what kind of slot wall things you have and especially what arms go with them that work so perfectly to hold synths. I am running out of horizontal space, but have lots of vertical space that is begging to be used, and my synths are outgrowing my studio! Pointers would be appreciated

Thanks man. I'm really proud of it (my last setup was in a muggy/dingy/dirty garage with too much storage, junk and other distractions outside of my control)

...a clean setup is a happier setup- helps in the inspiration department, easier to focus and get into the vibe

I have to ask - where did you get your furniture? I love the table, chairs and stand.

I've acquired these Standtastic wall mounted keyboard racks from a variety of sources including scrounging various arms from other stands I found online. They're very convenient and inexpensive, but hard to find - especially the rails. Here is the manufacturer's website: Standtastic - Wallmounts. If you can find the arms, I found a perfect substitute for the rails at Home Depot. (You can see the ones with the holes cut out in the left of the lower photo. They were silver and near the fencing section. I just drilled a couple of holes for mounting and painted them black.) Peace

Mostly Ikea (the record shelf is the Expedit that's been popular forever; I just added legs). Table is a simple diy I made myself. Chair is a vintage chair (pricey nowadays, much more than 6+ years ago, but still can be found for cheap if you keep looking and hunting; I guess the hipster trends made the nice stuff I like expensive :/).

Here's my 5u modular along with my main synth rack! Hoping my stg mixer comes shortly. Right now the ms-20 is being my EG+VCA after the filter, and I made a custom gate->s-trig cable for it. The VRG is my EG for the filter at the moment.

If I'm not mistaken the arms on those racks are by standtastic and the wall mounts are something that the arms fit. I've heard you can get compatible wall mounts from home depot since standtastic doesn't sell them anymore (they still sell the arms though), but I haven't been able to find them.

I have an original standtastic wall rack holding (from top to bottom) a Mackie 16 channel mixer, Little Phatty, Polysix, Jupiter 6, Ensoniq TS12 and a Yamaha 6 channel mixer. That's a really heavy set but I have every faith in it. Plus it takes up less space than a floor rack by far of course

I just got the wall mounts and arms from Standtastic not that long ago so I am not sure about that one. That would have to be a real recent development. I just went on the web site and they are definitely listed for sale. The stuff works great. I haven't seen anything at the Home Depot around here that I would consider a drop in replacement.

There are so many sexy setups here. Puts my lone m50 to shame. Good thing I play guitar and not keys.

Keep up the slutty work guys, you're all awesome to me!

Excellent info! I once even took one of the arms into Home Dept and couldn't find the correct strut. Looks like $16 per side. Not bad.

Dang. When I was looking for the wall mount stuff (several years ago) I emailed them at least four times and never heard back so I assumed they didn't sell them anymore. I eventually found mine through a studio that had closed shop.

Sorry to give bad info

Just FYI, I'm pretty sure that the price is for one 10' strut. You can make a set of two 5' rails out of one piece. I used my Dremel tool to cut and deburr the metal and drilled a hole in the top and bottom of each 5' rail before spraying them with Krylon.

It looks like HD even has the spring loaded nuts and bolts as well. Standtastic will provide the regular (non spring-loaded) hardware, but the nice thing about the spring loaded ones is that they stay in place when you remove the arm - sometimes that's a good thing when you're making adjustments.

So far I've mostly been using headphones, so it's no big problem for me.


That Presonus is nice. With the number of hardware sequencers you have on that desk, do you do a lot of real time playing / recording? Do you find yourself "working" the hardware mixer of the Presonus in real time as well, or do you typically set it up once for the session and leave it?

I have an 1818VSL (it has the same Fat Channel as your mixer) with the iPad app and like it alot, but I have always dreamed of having some sort of big mixer on my desk as well. That said, I am more of a "set the levels quick & record live" type of guy (I use hardware sequencers and synths as well), and then I mix ITB later... I fear something like that Presonus would be wasted on me.

Yes it is true that I really like and prefer hardware sequencers and I often jam and record live in my corner. Presonus mixer is perfect for that purpose.

For sequencing, I usually use FL Studio for my software synths, Future Retro Orb for Future Retro XS and Genoqs Octopus is used for the rest of my hardware synths. The computer is sync master and the Octopus and the Orb is sync slaves. I send the sound from all my hardware synths to the computer on their own channels through the mixer and put delay on them so I get perfect sync between all sequencers.

I use effects from both the Presonus mixer and the computer. I program some of the effects in advance on the computer and some effects live on the mixer while recording. I think this is the most fun way to make music.

Thanks. It is really very peaceful to just sit at the Rhodes and play it through all the Strymon pedals hooked up to it while staring outside. It never gets old. Fortunately my wife is really great about letting me do my thing. She calls the studio "my other wife."

Hahaha! Yesssss. After your slew of posts in the new gear threads I must say I was waiting for shots like this, this shows it in full force.

You need more custom furniture! Then there's room for lots more!

My wife wanted me to get another mixing desk where the Rhodes is but I don't want anything in front of the window. There is actually a decent amount of space in the main room to the left of the JP8. I have a Solaris and a Knifonium on order and they are going there when they show up.

The work area to the left of the Rhodes is a repair station for keyboards and other stuff. My wife is an electronics tech so she does all the soldering work. She wants to pull that table out and put her sewing machine in there. I have to find some tactful way to avoid that
