DIY Floating Keyboard - Music Studio Desk Hacks

▶ Check out my gear on Kit: https://kit.com/patrickbreen DIY Floating Keyboard - Music Studio Desk Hacks A quick little DIY video... I recently came up with a solution for those of us who are unable to have an under-desk midi keyboard drawer. This solution will still allow you to have your keyboard in front of you while producing and writing music without having to take up all of your desk space. This has been a huge win for me, I hope it helps you too! Slides: https://amzn.to/2OJVMuo

What’s up bro, it’s Adam O from the DIY desk video. This is the final puzzle piece to the desk I now intend to BUILD after seeing your video. My main instrument is the keyboard and I have a 77 key Yamaha keyboard I have also been using as a midi controller. I now have it next to my current desk, but being able to have it feasibly right under the desk sounds awesome. I like the producer cockpit analogy and I think aesthetics helps a lot with creativity and work flow. So thank you for saving me a shit ton of time and money and helping me bring my vision of a home studio into fruition SUPER FAST! I plan on getting to work building it this week! I hope my 77 key can fit under the desk, we’ll see. I really like the midi controller you have with the beat pads attached. Right now I am using the Yamaha as the midi controller, and an akai mini for the beat pads. I’m gonna send you a pic when I finish it man. Thank you again

What's a good alternative if you can't drill on your desk because you live in a student accommodation house and the desk isn't yours? Maybe something that could be on the ground that goes high enough and can hold a 66 keys keyboard.

Nice little improv to fix that issue Patrick. Great video. How do the sliders hold up on your new Keylab mkii??? It is a hefty board (16 lbs or so), weight-wise. I have a sliding board too on my desk workstation but it was typically made for actually comp keyboards though it's long/wide/deep enough to hold a 61 key controller. I just bought an adjustable keyboard stand to re-inforce it. Just subbed btw

Patrick, where are you storing the controller when not in use? Also, any annoyances with the USB cable having to be swapped out every time? I suppose you could snake an extra cable underneath the desk and attach to the slide for easier access...

Honestly, I typically leave my keyboard set up. However there are times when I want to "tidy up" or just work right up against my desk. In those cases I just put the keyboard in the closet. Again, this setup is by no means "perfect." Its just a solution for those of us who don't have a work station with a dedicated keyboard drawer. As far as cables, I have a USB hub adjacent to the keyboard in the left-side bay of the desk. You could easily mount a cable underneath the desk though. Feel free to DM me on IG. I can send pics or answer any other questions you have. (@patrickbreenmusic) ✌🏻
