Why do I need a studio desk? 

A studio desk creates the perfect environment for recording, mixing, and mastering, allowing you to store all your studio equipment within arm's reach providing easy access to your outboard gear, DAW controllers, studio monitors, MIDI keyboard, audio interface, and computer equipment. The Troilus Studio Desk Workstation by Trojan pro will enable you to make changes to your gear while in the right listening position rather than listening to your changes after you have made them in a rack to the side of you. 

What’s different from an office desk? 

A studio desk (or workstation) is designed with workflow, production and creativity in mind. Unlike a typical office computer desk or table, a studio desk like the Wavebone Star Rover Workstation is ergonomically designed to not only provide you with easy access to your equipment and gear, but also for comfort over long recording, mixing, and mastering sessions.  

These two things alone will boost your workflow and creativity in a built-for-purpose, clutter-free work environment, but for an additional boost you could add the ergonomically angled Wavebone Fin 13U Rackmount Case

What are the benefits of using a studio desk? 

As well as providing you with storage for all your studio equipment in a clutter-free creative and productive space, a studio desk is ideal for helping you position your equipment correctly due to the various rack spaces, shelves, tiers, and raised platforms. The Priam Studio Desk comes with two optional rotating studio monitor plates, great for finding the perfect monitor placement for critical listening. Get the most out of your production space by positioning your studio monitors and other audio equipment correctly! 

Where should I place my studio desk? 

Your Studio Desk should be placed in between the acoustic sweet spot and your front wall to get the best out of your studio monitors and other equipment when mixing. The best height for a studio desk is between 28 and 30 inches from the floor as this accounts for the average height of a female or a male. 

There are three main areas you should be thinking about when placing your studio desk, the desk depth, speaker position, ergonomics and the build quality. 

Desk Depth 

The desk depth is essentially the distance of your desk from the front wall, this is important as you may need space behind your monitors if they are on stands. If your monitors are too close to the front wall it can create a build-up of lower frequencies. 

Speaker Position 

The speaker position relates to finding the exact position to help you get the most out of the sweet spot and your room acoustically. Some other measurements you will need to make a note of are the height of your monitor and distance from the sweet spot, the distance between the monitors. You may also need put your monitor speakers behind the desk and whether you will need speaker stands. 

Desk Build 

The build quality encompasses the weight and vibrations from the monitors and the desk. Your desk needs to be sturdy enough to hold your gear and take any inevitable knocks it may incur. The vibrations from the monitors and consequently the desk can be reduced through decoupling; separating the monitors from the desk using foam stands. 

How can I make the most from my desk and my space? 

The most important thing to do to get the most out of your desk is make sure your space is acoustically treated. This means making sure that your desk is in the right listening position for the audio to sound as natural as possible and ensuring any unwanted noise, reflections, reverberations, echoes, standing waves and leakage have been reduced or dampened. 

This can be achieved by installing acoustic panels, diffusers and bass traps which reduce and dampen much of the problems you may encounter, the panels are placed at seated, ear level which is the best position for you to hear your mix.  

While mixing you will need to be comfortable as this can often take hours to get right, the Wavebone Voyager II Foam Seat and the Wavebone Voyager II Mesh Seat come with an adjustable headrest and lumbar support for consistent comfort throughout the day.
