In my studio, one issue has been that everything I'm not recording gets in the way of whatever I am recording that I'm not using for that session. This is especially the case with amps, pedalboards, cables, etc., when I'm recording acoustic instruments, vocals, etc. It always seems that there's no place to get things off the floor and out of the way.
I know that a lot of folks simply line their amps and cabs up along the walls, but I don't like recording a cab that way, as it creates quarter-space bass reinforcement and other problems unless one has lots of acoustical treatment. Anyway, there's that danged pedalboard...no place to put it, cables to trip over...
Then I eyeballed an old keyboard stand I built years ago. I wondered if I could adjust it to hold my pedalboard and get it not only off the floor when not in use, but out of sight, and covered so it wouldn't simply be a dust collector. And I got to work (excuse the blurry iPhone pics):
And here's a shot of the recording area with everything cleaned up and out of the way for an acoustic session:
I really do have to pat myself on the back, I haven't been this organized in a very long time!
Incidentally, the room has very nice natural acoustics; the ceiling tiles are all designed for acoustic absorption, but I've been moving ASC tube traps around as needed (they're in the storage room for this pic). Today I'm ordering some additional Realtraps for this area because I'm tired of moving tube traps around, and I tend to trip over them, too (heck yes, I'm clumsy!).
