Check Craigslist when you get here, it's lousy with studio furniture.

Modest spare room studio in about it's 12th iteration that steadily morphed from all hardware to a hybrid setup. Would like to go all itb but there's just always something to update/fix when I try to start with the computer and am feeling inspired but need it for recording, effects and options. Love using hardware to get an idea going and then moving/finishing itb.

Roland Juno DS61-great sketchpad/keyboard
Akai MPC1000-rock solid sequencer/sampler
NI Maschine Mikro-great sounds/pads-bad UI
Novation Bass Station II-great for bass/leads
Roland Handsonic-best gift ever/lots of fun
Triton Taktile-Transport/Daw control/XY pad
Studio One 2.5 with vsts/effects-UVI, IK ST3
Tal, Korg, NI Select/Monark, Lexicon, Bx, Xpnd
Allen and Heath Zed12fx-great sound
M-Audio-bright but transparent, clear midrange, hated and underrated, Adam next
JBL Sub to fill out the sub bass/low freq

Future additions:
-Adam T7v-great monitor for the price
-Behringer Model D-always wanted a Moog
and closest I'll get for my budget
-Presonus Atom or Maschine Mk3
-VST and 3rd party samplepacks
-Yamaha MX49/88...maybe

I will, I've been keeping any eye on Craiglist but I'm still going to get some custom made furniture as I want to have my mixer/control surface plus NI Maschine and an 88 note piano all built into the desk and the only way to get something like that is to go custom.

So if anyone knows any talented carpenters in LA that do custom studio furniture, PM me their info. Thanks.

AudioRax | Studio Equipment Racks and Furniture | Solid Wood Finger Joinery


Give Joel Abbott at AudioRax a call. His work is first rate and he does custom jobs (he’s west coast up WA way). I recently designed 6 ergonomic, slanted 13-u racks with HD castors for my control room (that can be adjusted to straight racks when you need to load, unload and connect the rack units)... and he made them magnificently.

I followed up with several other custom tabletop racks, 2 standing racks and a beautiful synth desk with FX hutch (for my MoogerFoogers and guitar pedal FX), all made using 1/2” or 3/4” Hickory wood (one of the hardest and best looking), all deeply FINGER-JOINTED panels (looks amazing!) and contructed very solidly and precisely (starting with CAD engineered drawings), then stained vintage cherry, my preference.

Thanks for the info. His work does look really good. I'd prefer someone closer to LA as I want the equipment (mixer, maschine, typing keyboard, 500 series racks) literally embedded inside the desk rather than sitting on top or inside a rack plus a custom sized slide out keyboard tray with the keys removed from the keyboard an embedded inside the slide out tray and sending all that gear interstate would be expensive and scary since it's all very expensive but the carpenter would probably need it to make sure everything is a tight fit.

If I can't find anyone talented within greater Los Angeles that is within my price range, I might have go interstate. I like the look of the Sterling Modular stuff but I'm sure they'll be too expensive for custom work for me given how expensive their non-custom work is. I'd prefer just a cool local carpenter dude or small business to work with rather than a large company. Joel probably would have been perfect if he was a closer drive from LA.

Funny you mention Sterling as that’s where my custom rack quest passed through, and I worked with the Pres. Rick Lawrence, who’s a great guy. At the time they were going through a transition and many months went by with no progress on my custom job. I finally called up AudioRax and talked to Joel. He was eager for the big job, had it specified and drawn up in CAD in 2 days! We had some back and forth design tweaks for 2 more days and it was a go! They would have been completed 4 to 6 weeks, but he was in the middle of a big move to a larger working facility with upgraded equipment, etc., so it went a couple weeks over, no biggie though.

He packs his work in extra thick currogated cardboard boxes, custom cut for each job. But, yeah, local deliver comanies can be a pain sometimes, especially deliveries to residential addresses. I’ve had one bad delivery incident out of around a baker’s dozen jobs from Joel.

Anyway, Sterling Modular makes fine, solid equipment. Perhaps even more appropriate for big custom desks with inlays and such as you’re describing. And, for something like that, I tend to agree with your concern to keep it local, if possible.

Sound Construction is another outside option.

Good luck!

Haha, I’m trying my friend! Things are moving slowly. I’m bogged down at the moment needing to get city approval for a reduced “setback” from our garage to the street, which will then allow us to install a (permitted) car port, which will then allow us to convert our garage to a “media room” (again permitted). This will be my main CR and Live/Tracking Room

I’m hoping to post pic updates of my Family Room setup - with my expanding synth and API DSM based recording rigs - in the next couple/few months. But, I have posted these in progress pics of my synth rig before.

I think and talk about it every single day. At some point, things will kick into high gear. But, until then, I’m impatiently waiting.

Here’s my corner of the world. Actually preparing for live gigging, all by myself with keys, guitar, pads and laptop. Deliberately messy because it looks more rock’n’roll on Instagram than my usual tidy, well treated space

Particularly fond of the Picasso-praphrase made as wedding present by a friend 30 years ago.

Dig the Seq! The newly released firmware adds to it nicely. VERY intuitive. Very visual, and fantastic build quality. Downside: 32 steps only. But for quick real time sequencing (polyphonically!)....its great! I have a LOT of sequencers in the room. For hardware I probably lean more towards the Cirklon and the Pyramid more. But in patching a modular set....I might end up using 4 or 5 different sequencers for different 'parts'.

Thanks for your follow up. So nice to have those sequencer options! I don’t have any modular, but I am wondering about polyhonic seqencing, like with the One (and your Sequential/DSI synths, etc.). It reminds me of an elongated MatrixBrute matrix button sequencer, which is very intuitive, simple and easy to shape or modify.

Sequencing is a diverse topic, and sequencers come in a multitude of styles and types. For polyphonic sequencing of hardware synths, I generally prefer a track-based midi editor type, such as the Cirklon or Pyramid (speaking only about hardware here). The grid based sequencers are better at monophonic lines.

The Seq and the Matrixbrute sequencers actually share a LOT in common. You can in fact use the Matrixbrute as (merely) a great sequencer for external gear. The Seq, under its new firmware, is more feature rich, including ratchets, polyrhythms, and more. But the Matrixbrute is a 64 step sequencer, and the Seq only 32...which I find limiting. I wish Polyend would at least consider a way to either, a) put a page system on the Seq to elongate the pattern length, or b) put some poly chain type system so two Seq hardwares could sync in tandem for a longer pattern length. But in time they may do just that.

As of today....the Monome Grid (be sure to look carefully into this! Its initially obtuse-looking/sounding, but in practice its a fantastic sequencer and much much more!) is actually a better grid based sequencer. For more conventional track based midi editable sequencing of synths....the Pyramid (on a budget) is fantastic and does EVERYTHING, and the Cirklon (expensive and wait list) is just friggin luxurious.

Unfortunately there is a lot if light coming in through that window. And yes, I do realise that I could fit a larger keyboard on that drawer

It's a tap-style guitar. Warr maybe?
