This unit has tied the elements of my home studio together perfectly. As I type, the top shelf is holding my 27" monitor and a pair of 8" monitors laid sideways, which places the woofers and tweeters precisely at ear level. The large desk surface is just the right height for my computer keyboard. The bottom shelf supports my computer, and has room to spare for storing microphones, headphones, cables etc. The rack bays and cable tray are the other elements that make this studio desk function so well, placing a combined total of 8 bays (4 each side) right at my fingertips. Ergonomically speaking this design is well thought out and executed.

I read an earlier review or two which cast doubt on the casters. The casters that came with mine appear to be quite heavy duty, and I would be very surprised indeed if one of them were to fail. Maybe the issue has been addressed by the manufacturer.

No other studio desk in this price range offers so much. In my case it is a complete solution - I don't have to buy monitor stands or another furniture item for my rackmount equipment. As my studio area is small, this means a lot to me, and is reflected in my rating. I'd give it an extra star if I could for being so much better than the competitiion.

To put things in perspective, the quality is fantastic for the price in that the unit meets or exceeds all my expectations. The unit is solid, goes together easily, looks good, and functions just as it should.
After shopping around a bit both locally and on line, I found nothing else at this price point that delivers as much value.

I personally think this is an amazing studio desk for any home studios, whether you're recording, mixing, mastering, composing, anything!
When I first began putting this desk together, I was amazed with how big it is! It's got many Pros to it: The rackmounting space, the wide upper-shelf that can hold a decently sized computer screen and two big reference monitors. The lower desk is very wide, a lot of good real estate when it comes to a studio. As an electronic artist, having my MIDI controllers out in front of me, accessible at all times is a major plus! My little addition to the desk was that I added a small sliding keyboard tray on the bottom from Ikea for my Apple Wireless Keyboard and Trackpad, so that I would save the space on the desk itself. Even on theb bottom of the desk, the elevated lower part is a nice little foot rest for when you're spending hours on a session! And I can't forget the casters on the bottom, they help out no doubt with moving the desk to get behind it and patch cables!
For the price, the materials used on this desk are definitely nice quality! The wood (though it's probably fake) is really nice, and the metal parts are of a nice sturdy build. Don't have to worry about mounting a lot of things on the rack, these'll hold 'em all up!
I no doubt believe that for the price, that this desk is worth it

A Great Deal

Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

After FEDEX freight finally got my desk here (they missed the truck 2 days in a row :( .. I was able to put this together in about 40 minutes. VERY easy to assemble, in fact, probably the easiest assembly job for a desk I have ever experienced. It is a very solid piece and looks great in my new home studio. The racks rails all line up and did I mention that it really looks good in my new home studio!!! Lots of room to put monitors, keyboard, an MTR, and did I mention it really looks good in my new home studio!! If you are looking for something that is reasonably priced, don't hesitate, it is a cool piece that will serve you very well for all your music creations!!

Awesome Desk

Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

What can I say. If you need a home studio Desk, or even for a small commercial Desk, I don't think you can do much better than this one. Again, is everything I always wanted!!!
When I first ordere it, I though I would need to maybe add a keyboard tray, but now that I got it and installed it, I don't think I'll need it. There is planty of space for my Keystation 49, my Logitech Mac keybaord and mouse and everything feels pretty comfortable. I'm really liking it!!
Quality looks really good. It tooked a while to put toghter, but the installation was painless and really easy. It just takes some time, but nothing too bad. Everything fits perfectly, no fidling around trying to make things work, everything just snaped in place. Awesome!!!
Great value!! Is iincredible how other desks can cost three or five times what this one costs and not having a lot more, or even nothing more to offer. Again, Im super happy!!

    Try and find a better desk. Using the rack for my BBE, monitors on the top rack with my Dell all-in-one, and my M-Audio keyboard on the main desk. Great space saver and workspace. Would buy again without hesitation.

    Product malfunction

    By Pierre Foy

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

    Value was okay.
    The desk was fairly easy to put together. It's just enough space for 2 studio monitors, i-Mac, 16 channel desktop mixer, small keyboard controller ad mouse pad.
    The only issue (which is a big one) is that after a couple of times of moving it back and forth to adjust cables behind where it is currently position, I noticed it became more and more diffiicult to move. The rear caster completely caved. Now the desk is tilted back on an incline and now need to remove each piece of gear to replace the casters. Not good!

    Facts of Creation Station Studio Desk

    By E-Mart

    from Los Angeles, CA

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

    Overall, pretty sturdy desk. I wouldn't stand on it though. This Creation Station desk is the medium size between the (small) Mix Station and (large) Producer Station. Bottom Shelf big enough to store 3 to 4 guitars in cases.
    The Cherry version did not come with Vertical Panels and Bottom Shelf in Pewter(Dark Gray) due to being discontinued by the manufacture. So I got the Top Shelf and Main Worksurface replaced in Maple.
    Dual 4 space rack and comes with rack screws. Four casters to move around, two locking. Main Worksurface at computer keyboard height. No need to add computer keyboard shelf under Main Worksurface.
    Top Shelf rated at 35lb max. load.
    Main Worksurface rated at 50lb max. load
    Bottom Shelf rated at 50lb max. load.

    Nice Studio Desk

    By Steve Gandy

    from Telford PA

    Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

    For the home studio enthusiast on a budget this is good value for money and the lower ledge space is adequate for a desktop PC (I have two) and storing other small items. The monitor ledge is also situated at a nice height and has enough room for a 21-inch monitor plus two G-2 Rockit Monitors
    Went together pretty easily, with no missing parts. Additional screws and washers provided for the rack mount brackets. Took approx. 1 hour to assemble. This is good value for money and the quality of the drilled holes was good in terms of alignment. I have no complaints and the cherry finish goes nicely in my room. The only downside comment is that it would have been nice to have had a smaller rack space mounting as well as the larger one. I have an Edirol SD-80 that is rack mount but for the smaller rack space. The cable tray at the back could be a little wider and deeper. However, these are minor points and overall I find this a nice workstation to use.
    Quality was good with no assembly problems and/or missing parts. The holes aligned properly and the wheels went on without problems.
    Good value for money in this price range

    It broke my equipment

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

    I was using this desk to hold two 8" studio monitors, a desktop, a Digidesign 002 Rack and two 20" displays. Originally on assembly I had the plywood pull apart that holds the two layers together, but simply fixed it with drilling through 1/4" bolts and using nuts instead.The big accident happened when I was trying wheel the system back after rearranging cords and the back caster broke. They use hollow not solid center supported casters, which is entirely insufficient for the weight of this desk.I like the design, but the hardware and parts are of very very poor quality and breaks easily. It is not worth risking your equipment on bad furniture.

    Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

    This was one of the easiest pieces of "unassembled" furniture I have ever bought! I had it put together in less than 90 minutes, rack equipment in, computer wired and installed! I would reccomend this in a heartbeat! The only thing I would suggest would be the availability of a separate slide out keyboard tray by the manufacturer! Cheers!

          Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

          I just got the cherry model of this studio desk, and it features pewter finish supports and cable management panel. It took less than 2 hours to assemble using a Philips screwdriver and an allen wrench (included), and aside from a couple of pilot holes not being drilled too deep, the tolerances on this thing were pretty much on the money. It looks like a respectable piece of furniture, and the complete set of rack panel screws included was a nice touch. I anticipate many years of happy use from this studio desk.

          from San Diego, CA

          Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

          Pros- Excellent quality parts- Straightforward building instruction, although I did have to depart from them to make the cross bars fit into one of the legs (took me 1hr15mns once products were unpacked)- On solid wheels, so can easily access plugs at back- Easily fits my 5 single rack units, 2 monitors (Alesis M1s), dozen CDs, Alesis QS6.1, a POD and a DI box, two computer towers, and two 19 inch flat monitors- Quick turn-around time when reporting a problem on their website (rack unit bracket holes were badly misaligned, so ordered free replacements on the website, which arrived 7 days later)Cons- CD Racks are close to useless - too big for a single CD, too small for DVD cases or 2 disc software boxes - and very awkward to install (you can only turn the screw 1/8th of a turn at a time)- Can barely fit a keyboard, a mouse and a contour shuttlepro on the keyboard tray (just the former two would be no problem though), and the height between the tray and the desk is not high enough if you want to raise the keyboard on its rests

          Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

          I've looked around for many desk for my studio/computer set up. This desk for the money is a real nice buy. It even comes w/ a power conditioner that mounts in the brackets that come w/ the desk. You can wire all of your instruments and amps through the conditioner and turn everything on with the flip of a switch. It is a little short, but the pictures provided do it no justice. It is perfect for the two monitor set up and provides more than enough room for all your components. I am very happy with this buy and would recommend this desk to any beginner/amateur in house studio. It is definately a great value and worth every penny. Also, only takes about an hour to put together. Buy it!

          Overall, this is a great way to start out if you have never had one if these tables. Affordable and practical and the ease of assembly was an added bonus also.
          I liked the fact that it came equipped with the screws to anchor your effects processors. That was a nice bonus to know you have them there when needed.
          I think that the MDF construction is a little sub par. I had to redrill holes to mount a keyboard shelf and the finish chipped off if the original holes. It is not visible but I thought that the lamenated surface would have been a little better.
          For the new studio musician who is looking for an affordable way to be able to just sit down and create, it is very practical.

          from Athens, GA

          Comments about Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk:

          I was skeptical when the desk arrived via Roadway. The box looked like it had been run over by a stampede of horses, and one set of casters was rolling around in the back of the truck. Upon taking the pieces out of what was left of the box I discovered that somehow it survived the trip with only 1 scratch on the monitor shelf. I've really enjoyed this desk so far. I do wish it was a little higher so I could get a pc keyboard mount under it, but otherwise this is an awesome desk at a great price.

          I just got this desk in cherry last month and love it! It arrives by a semi delivery but it was easy to get in the house and start assembling. It only took about 30 minutes to put together and its very solid and strong. It looks great and truly provides an open and efficient workspace for composition. Well worth the money!
