Do you have a home studio? Is your desk way too small but you don't want to fork out 1000 of dollars on a "producer" desk? Here's how I created my perfect home studio desk for under $450.
If you are a producer that works in a home studio setting, I can imagine you have had some trouble finding a solid desk that won't break the bank. I was on the hunt for the right desk for over a year but I could never find anything I liked. Everything was either way too expensive or the layout wasn't fit for my needs. With so many people producing and mixing mostly in the box now, a lot of us don't need massive workstations with a space for a control surface in the middle and tons of rack storage on the worktop and underneath the desk. Personally, I was on the hunt for a large worktop that could fit my 61 key MIDI controller, my computer monitor, and would have some leftover space so I didn't feel cluttered. I had a couple of rack pieces that I wanted a home for, and I had an 88 key keyboard that is my secondary keyboard / MIDI controller. It was impossible for me to find a desk that had the space on top that I wanted, the space for my 88 key keyboard, and some slots for the rack gear I do have. I finally figured out the solution.
