Stand solutions for smaller modules

Post by factorplayer » Thu Oct 18, 2012 5:14 pm

So, I have been going around in circles trying to find a decent stand setup for what I need. The main detail is that I while traditional stands are great for most keyboards, I have some synth modules like Roland SH-32 and such that don't fit well or at all.

Anyone have a good recommendation for a modular stand that holds both keyboards and can support smaller gear like modules and laptops? that is really what I need.

Traditional sheet music stands are brilliant for the likes of drum machines, moogerfoogers, desktop synths etc.

They are variable it height and angle so can be very convenient in a cramped studio space
Replicants are like any other machine, they're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, its not my problem.

Music stand? Brilliant.


Laptop stand work well too. I have my 808 on one of the ones with screw down parts, works well too. Too bad they cost more than 20 bucks *eyeroll*

A frame stands.
Not cheap but flexible once you get all the accessories.

I went with a Quiklok LPH-001 to hold up either a laptop as portable DAW or to hold up my MPC1000. I sometimes see them on sale for $40 and they are extremely sturdy. Only bummer is it only tilts about 30 degrees on one side, whereas the other tilt direction is less than 10 degrees.
I've been using a music stand, purchased for about $50 plus tax, to hold either my Access Virus b or the TB303 & TR606 as a pair. It can also fit 2 or 3 foogers nicely.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.
