Hi folks! I recently finished building my home studio desk. A few people said they'd like to have some plans - so I made a video guide, with some downloadable plans!

Just follow the link! https://youtu.be/_KFrNO-7cN0

Very nice desk. I did build my own desk as well, but after a while I changed it because my Tascam US-2400 was to high up for me to work comfortably. I ended up lowering part of the desk so the Tascam would sit 'in the desk' instead of 'on the desk'.

So how do you experience your Mackie controllers sitting that high up?

I'm currently working on the design for a new desk. Funny enough I want to get rid of my monitor stands and have them on the desk (for space considerations, being able to fit a second set of monitors). I'm designing with FreeCAD which is the premier free parametric cad system. For those interested: https://www.freecadweb.org/

Its just about OK to have the controllers that high. I'm not sure I'm committed enough yet to fit the controllers into the desk - but I surely see where you are coming from!

Thanks for your reply.

My mixing sessions are pretty involved (progrock, lots of vocal tracks and such, at least 70+ total mixer channels) so I need a comfortable position for my controller.

Always cool to see this sort of thing. I'm currently fixing up my desk setup
