The Tiny Studio Corner Thread

That is a Paradise MIDI MIDI controller!

It’s a prototype Blue Lantern Synthx! Found it on Craigslist, fell in love with the pink and gold faceplate. It’s got kind of a Serge vibe — two oscillators, two envelopes, a filter, a VCA, and an LFO, all very squelchy and unpredictable and wild.

I like the look of those.

I spent some time reorganizing and realized that the Beatstep Pro isn’t really meeting my needs at the moment. I have no real need for a mobile workstation due to the 'rona, so my Thinkpad T480 has been repurposed as a dedicated ORCA/JACK/ReNoise/Audacity machine, with the vanilla KeyStep for note entry - and, of course, the 16n for maximum control of my teeny tiny Mutable clones!

so cool! funnily enough my first impression was “custom serge??” i guess because of the lines on the panel and 1900h knobs. i hear good things about blue lantern though. and those colors are amazing.

Here’s my little corner sound station nearly finished — added the desktop today, as well as enclosed the little cabinet space to the right of the Palette case. (It’s currently holding the Little Red Book, a French-English dictionary, and, last but not least, @shellfritsch & Rob Moss Wilson’s “Big Lunch.” :blue_heart:

What’s left is adding some euro rails to the spot next to the 16n to hold some control modules I’ve been missing — a Soundmachines Lightplane and the Doepfer theremin module — and then sewing a nice canvas cable organizer to hang off that back crossbeam.

I am so so so, so happy with how this turned out; it’s one of those projects where it feels even better than how it was in my head!

Thank you so much! I have the Sketchup plans if you or anyone else wants to make their own :slight_smile:

Here’s a shot of my small studio—my guitar rig is out of shot… I’ll add it below. I finally got some new monitors in today and listening to my patches is a new experience (was previously just listening through my computer), and was so exciting I called my wife in to experience it. :joy: I feel so fortunate to have the ability to play with sound!

On a side note, I’m trying to figure out a better way to have access to my racks on my desk, so hopefully by early 2021 I’ll have that sorted. My two cases currently sit on a stand my brother custom-made for me, which is pretty awesome.

Love this stand design! Like a painter’s easel.
Also so happy to see a 16n with color caps NEXT to a copy of Big Lunch :heart_eyes:

Thank you, @shellfritsch! If I were to put my OP-Z on that shelf as well, the trinity would be complete, and you’d climb out of my little bookcase like in the video for “Take On Me.”

Looks great. My first thought:

Too much Disney with the littleuns lately.

Just the right amount of Disney!!!

hi! this is the “library case” is from landscape fm! I don’t think they made very many at all – definitely > 10, and there is no trace of them on their website, but i did find this instagram post showing it!
