Sometimes, some devices which are not related to audio have big effects on the efficiency. This topic will introduce you accessories which make us feel energetic and comfortable while working at studio.
1#: Studio Desk
This is audio specialized desk. Because of the audio job’s natures, these desks usually have below characteristics:
Solid and stable because you will put many devices on it like screen, audio interface, monitor speaks, et cetera which are very heavy and pricey. So you need to choose good, solid, durable desk to prevent our equipment from breaking.
Moreover, one good stable desk also helps prevent vibration produced by speakers (if you put monitor speakers on desk). When speakers deliver sound, if desk isn’t stable, the speakers will transmit the vibration to desk’s surface and they become resonant box which make sound less accurate.

This desk is designed to have different parts for different functions to connect audio equipment. Size of device racks is usually followed industrial standard to be fit in its device.
c/ Convenience & Comfortability
When you work on a desk, you can easily contact with usual using devices. For example, you just need to reach your hand in order to turn the volume or switch any devices.
A good desk will guarantee your comfortability, it’s not too high or too low but suitable with your height. The putting screen place has rational distance in order to prevent eyes from being tired.

Because each person has different preferences and each studios has its characteristics, sometime studio desk are personally designed not sold with available form. This is usually right with big studio.
In short, the most important thing is convenience, suitability and comfortability. You wouldn’t know that you’ve endured the entire time until you find the right desk.
