true dat. I'm sure it's based around similar standards; mine being that I needed at least 61 keys semi-weighted. as far as I know, the Keystation is the cheapest MIDI board that meets those standards.

I'm guilty of owning it previously as well, as it used to be the only 100USD or less 49key controller so it pretty much dominated the market. Now theres alternatives definitely.

Also, i'd just like to mention that the korg microkey kinda kicks ass as far as action on any mini-keys keyboard goes

(*high fives Step* thats a good poor mans' choice mr.paid-to-go-to-university)

So yeah to contribute to the thread; I use an MPK88 with Hello Kitty Stickers (I've zoomed in a bit for a more elegant view of the kittens). I enjoy it thoroughly.

Random phone picture from late August, but the set up is pretty much the same but with worse scenery due to the time of year.
Certainly less elegant than most of the other studios here and definitely not the best set up acoustically, but it was either here or my super cramped bedroom and I figured the view was worth it.
Keyboard is a Yamaha MOX8 and the monitors are Equator D5's for those who care.

Haha, I wish. It's just a lake that's on my college campus. One of their on-campus apartment complexes has some rooms with a nice view and I was lucky enough to grab one.

Just wanted to bump this thread to show off my new additions, as I'm sure that some of you guys have upgraded as well. Next on my list of things to add on are a bigger desk and legit studio speakers.

Interesting! So which controll surface did you finally get? You definitely need a bigger desk. If you are a home handyman there are a lot of good construction plans of cool studio desks out there in the net - i think 150 € / 200 $ should work for a good one. What i find really cool: You could bring it to a paint spraying shop so the surface becomes polished and blank like a piano (each color of course). I was thinking of doing this - gets a little bit more expensive, but looks just awesome.

Speakers: I have heared the Yamaha HS 80 shell be good for orchestra pieces.

Oh I haven't gotten the control surface yet, but I'm looking at the Korg Nanokontrol. Just something simple to hold me over until I can make more money. As for a desk, well I just need something simple and flat.

2 Nicely sized monitors help me keep track of the various VSTis I use for chip, but look at that dinky MIDI controller! I'll be getting a new one in a few days, a bit tired of having crosstalk between keys :\

Dude, get the Korg nanoKontrol 2 if you go that route. The nano2 series controllers are pretty solid for being portable. Heck, they're the only MIDI controllers I HAVE right now (pad2, key2 and kontrol1)

This is mine.

Info:
The thing behind the keyboard(PC Keyboard) is a tablet.
I'm still waiting for my Graphics tablet to arrive, so that's not included.
There's 2 guitars and 4 keyboards.
My microphone is a Blue Yeti.
Yes, there is 2 mouses a trackball mouse and a razer mouse.

Still a work in progress, have to get more foam tiles for the ceiling pattern. The walls are sound proofed with rockwool and I used that as a sound treatment too.
Behind the table the rockwool is covered just by textile and on the walls I have the panels with holes of different sizes so I have some absorbing and some reflecting surfaces.

The foam panels are at the ear height for the first reflection from speakers (will be on the other side too).

Thanks. Still, it's far from being ready but closer and closer every day. I'll keep posting the progress :)
Also, when ready, I'll make a new trumpet loops pack.

I'd keep an eye out for lower frequencies. How are you attenuating sub 250hz? Foam wont take you any lower than that and thats where most room modes fundamentals are. Otherwise it looks sweet! Has a good unique look to it.

Rockwool. Several walls are covered only in rockwool and textile, the back wall will be covered in stone tiles for diffusion, some furniture and we'll see from there, maybe some bass traps if needed.

Niiice! Got any pics of the live room (assuming that is a live room on the other side of that glass)?

Rockwool.

Sorry I shoulda just asked, how thick is the rockwool? I'd say 200mm thick rockwool would be pretty good for bass trapping.

Actually on the other side of the glass is not another room, is just the neighbor... but keep in mind that he is a musician too, a really good saxophone player.
My studio is just a small project studio, one room for all with enough space to record a rock band but not more. Anyway, mostly I will record my music with live trumpet and saxophone (maybe some French horn too).

Well, couldn't afford that much space, just 7 cm and I will see in the corners some more. I have some big armchairs that could do the trick (partly), will build some round bass traps for the back corners and hope the stone wall will scatter the frequencies also.

I'm not really a planner :D, like my music, my life is mostly improvised :D

I would take a picture, except I dare not... it isn't a studio, just a computer with a breaking screen hinge, an equally broken pair of headphones, and a Samson Go mic connected to the top.

Yes..... this is the ultimate low-key, I'm afraid...
