IKEA Synth Wardrobe Squeezes Studio Into Small Spaces

Felix of The Tuesday Night Machines shared this video, documenting how he hacked an IKEA Pax wardrobe to house a compact synth studio.

Here’s what he has to say about using the IKEA PAX as a ‘synth wardrobe’:

I tried a lot of different music setups over the years. Standing at a desk, sitting at a desk, sitting on the floor, large cases, small cases, 19″ racks and so on …

I found that standing upright in front of my gear feels the best to me and having a wardrobe with doors I can close to hide the mess is really nice too, when I lack a dedicated music room in the apartment.\

The wardrobe also helps to keep things contained and not spreading/expanding all over the place. Too much gear doesn’t help my creativity and the PAX has a good size, just bordering on the “too much” side.
