Music Studio Furniture

When you create that little bit of heaven (or perhaps a haven) for yourself you’re going to need to have a place to put it. Music studio furniture can be really expensive, but if you are creative you can get away with spending very little on it. Before you start your search for some music studio furniture, it’s a really good idea to work out what you want to do with it. What I mean to say is the following: If all you’re planning to do is record your own voice and all you are going to need is a microphone then you’re not going to need anything fancy. But if you want more than having a big work-space is really important. Moreover, if you want to expand in the future you’ll need space in which to do so, so getting something sizable is definitely worthwhile.

Let’s go through a basic list of what you need to get started. I will assume that you are going to be recording using a line in, a microphone as well as a MIDI keyboard.

You will need space for:

  • 1 or 2 computer screens (because recording music is quite complex and there are a lot of things going on the screen at the same time, you need to be able to see them all. Therefore although unnecessary, I feel that having 2 screens is the way to go.)
  • The CPU (that’s the big box that normally sits on the floor)
  • A regular qwerty keyboard.
  • The audio interface.
  • The MIDI keyboard.
  • Space for your notes. (This is really important as any budding musician knows that you need space for writing, even doodling is helpful sometimes to get those creative juices going.)
  • 2 monitors.

Now in all honesty I would say that it doesn't really matter what kind of desk you get as long as you’ve got space for everything except the monitors. The reason for this is that when it comes to music studio furniture you have to feel comfortable where you working.

The single most important thing is having somewhere to put your monitors. I’ll explain this in a different article but for now just know that they don’t necessarily belong on a desk. You have to take the acoustics of the room into account and without doing that you may have the best monitors in the world but won’t be able to hear if the music is good or not.

Happy hunting!
