I know this isn't a Garritan question, but there are no other people's opinions I trust more than the users of this forum...
My carpal tunnel has been getting very very bad lately, mostly due to the increased hours at my home recording setup (I can't bring myself to call it a 'studio' yet-- it is really just a corner of my living room). My setup is ergonomically hideous-- my chair can't adjust height, my music keyboard is too low, and the old dining room table that I use for the computer screen, keyboard, mouse, and monitors is too high.
My hardware is minimal and small, so I don't need a workstation that has tons of storage space... I also have a small room. What is most important is that everything has a spot, and that it is all ergonomical-- things need to be at the right height. I would prefer that my MIDI controller be part of the workstation, rather than on a separate keyboard stand. I also can't spend more than $400 (maybe I could, but that would delay my purchase of JABB, and Gary wouldn't like that ).
Please help, I am in pain!
My hardware setup:
Mac-mini (the Mini is super small) with a regular keyboard & mouse
Pre-Sonus Firepod (1/2 rack space)
17" Flat screen LCD monitor
61 key MIDI controller (M-Audio Keystation 61es)
pair of KRK Rokit 5" monitors (pretty small)
