    Hey, I've got most of the gear I need, and I know what I want to get to complete my studio... but I'm having a heck of a time setting it all up in a fashion that is space saving, ergonomic, and not expensive. What I would love to have is one of those studio workstation desks... but those are like $1000 :eek:

    I have my keyboard, a xylophone, drumset, computer and an 8 space rack. (and all this has to share one room with my bed and 2 dressers :eek: )

    my biggest problem is getting everything to fit close enough together so that I can reach it all with out having to move around too much.

    any tips for setting up your equipment in a tight space?

    IKEA has those desks which are simple yet super stable... get 2 of those and get a good chair too.

    you can also get a rack.. to rack up most of your gear in there if needed... and either put the rack on one of the desks or on the floor

    voila

    you can get a studio desk built for under $200. get a layout that you like from a company like omnirack, then go to home depot and have them do the cuts. all you have to do is get 1 or 2 support beams and some good desk screws

    that desk was built for under $200. i'm paying a guy $200-350 to build me one like this one

    if you don't have $100-$300 to spend, go to office max and get some long tables, that always works and it should only cost $25 each table.

    Just an update...
    I got everything organized ina neat fashion. I raised my bed off the floor so now I can store a lot of stuff under there. I put an L shaped desk with one side the whole length of my wall and the short side half the length of the other wall. I got shelves all over the place, and stuff stored underneath the desk. So far it's all fit nicely in place.
    I might post a picture of the setup once I get my room all cleaned.
