    I added a few mods to my drum machine stand. 1.I fabricated it to fit the MK3 so now it fits both the MK3 and the Maschine Studio. 2. I added a vesa mount for a display but now I'm thinking touchscreen is the way to go. So I may be replacing the LCD with an iPad pro in the future.

    Yea I need better cable management as well. Problem is once they're all cleaned up it's a pain in the arse to remove them. I'm looking for a solution that cleans em up but allows them to be added and removed easily.

    I'm lucky enough to have a decent room in the house. Was a lounge and dining room but we have a bigger family room which is now the lounge and this is the "Creative / Gaming" room.

    I spend a lot of time in this room working and playing and in the last pic it shows computers for the other family members so we sometimes play games and have some LAN days and also doubles as my repair desk (fixing a printer there at the moment).

    The main computer desk is a custom built lift desk I built. Desktop came from an old 1980s vinyl wood looking receptionist desk (free) which I carpeted and installed lift legs. The top shelf is custom built with integrated lights and power management for all my gear.

    The keyboard desk with an A49, Maschine and MCU is also custom built as a 2 tier keyboard stand (I custom build a lot)

    The large elephant image behind it is a pencil sketch that my Mum did (She's a self taught awesome sketch artist. Her website is Here). I'm storing it for her until she finds a buyer but I reckon i'll buy it because it's freaking awesome.

    Other art on the walls is my kids because I need reminders as to why I need to keep my $hit together sometimes.

    There's a spare lounge and TV for gaming for guests as this also doubles as a second guest room if we have a few people over.

    That's basically my collection of 20 years worth of mostly a hobby and a passion project

    I've updated my soundlab to 5.1 recently. Did a year of self teaching, research, CAD drawing and finally building my first studio that isn't at home. I'm quite proud of my self and the result is beyond my expectations. It is remarkable how much of an impact an acustically optimized room has on your work. A reflection free zone is a dream to work in. I can now work nearly twice as fast because everything is trustable when it comes to punch and clarity of stuff. Also, saturation and reverb is much easier to dial in. I also can mix on a much lower volume without the fear of missing something, which means I can do more work per day, because my ears are not fatigued so fast.

    gorgeous space... i love the simplicity of it!...

    one day years back i asked my neighbour, who had a wall lined with gold records of the bands he recorded back in "the day", advice on getting a good bass tone in a mix. His reply, "keep it simple and get a good set of headphones". .. the reality is that now anyone with a good set of headphones and a laptop with a good set of sound software can do what a megastudio could back just 20 years ago... all while sitting on a beach in bali.

    i am fortunate to have a victorian home studio - it has the bay double pane bay windows similar to the wall behind the desk area and plaster rounded 12 foot high ceilings... so little need to optimize the acoustics as it has already been done from the era of simple conversation, pianos, and victrola phonograph players. in recent years i have toned back and now only use the minimum... gone are the racks and racks of gear and a dozen keyboards...
