How to Utilize Unused Keyboard Realestate


High Diving Act

Recommended Posts

There is a ton of unused space on my VR700. I had a clear picture of how I could use it and house most of the gear I need at an arms reach. This is why I really felt the Korg Microstation would make a nice sonic and logistic addition to my rig. Here is what I did.

 

Step 1. Cut down 2 metal cloths hangers.

Step 2. Bend to size and fasten to existing music stand mounts

Step 3. Affix a bit of duct tap to protect hood of board and a bit more just to make sure nothing moves

Step 4. Place microstation on racks

Still enough space on left side for a minivent and an Ipad on the right! lol

On my X stand 2nd tier, I fabricated a pvc attachment that slid into the pipes of the tier and rested on my Electro, to give me a 3rd tier for about 5 bucks in parts. Necessity, the mother of invention!

 

Nice job!

Try it with links uploaded to imgur or something instead of DropBox. Dropbox redirects into its own web interface, when you click those links you aren't getting a direct link to the image file so you wouldn't be able to embed them.

Speaking of lamps,.. I got this a couple weeks ago from The Source (Radio Shack) for $4 dollars,.. double led gooseneck,.. pretty bright for either seeing whats going on on the panel or a music book. Takes 3 AAA batteries and looks like it would last 6 gigs or so.
