Am I the only one not able to see the pictures in annode's post?
I cant see 'em either ...
I'm using an Ikea desk that I was given years ago. Its totally adjustable for height. The shelf hides all the cable mess away.
That desk(and others configured like it) seem awfully difficult to navigate.
The lap qwerty and mon screens are almost out of reach. This sort of stuff is why I just went deskless. These configs just seem tiring. I know when I do music, i'm at it for hrs on end. I would hate to have to be reaching for stuff and leaning forward to see things getting eye and back stress.
I use a remote qwerty & mouse for the laptop, to keep everything (Push, midi keys, etc) within easy reach. The screens are as close as I need ... and low enough to avoid a "cricky" neck. I've used this configuration for a while, and it works well for me. There are hardware synths, a rack & mixer to the left, and behind the seating position (in a U shape) which I can reach by simply turning my chair.
