I used the Numerar double sided countertop:
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70160189

And the Vika Moliden legs:
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30177912

Then I built the frame out of redwood 2x4s and stained it ebony to match the desk. put felt on top so the desk would sit perfectly flat on it. and used heavy duty metal brackets, and glue to anchor the frame together. The kitchen countertop actually just sits on top of the frame. I didn't want to drill into it because the top is double sided. It's heavy enough that it doesn't need to be secured. It's actually really sturdy. The redwood is so strong it's the stuff they make houses with.

Total cost with everything I used is 180$

It depends on which top you get. They have solid wood ones that wont need it. the one I got is particle board laminate. It's really sturdy and heavy but i think over time it would slightly bend down the middle if I didn't give it support. Cause it's 73" wide.

Ikea is rad. it's like furniture lego.

I was kind of lucky and lucked out at the same time. The place my girl and i moved into has a pretty nice old style table in in. It's really nice and it's big but due to it still belonging to the owner of the place i can't really do anything crazy to it. But i do have my own room for the studio so thats a MASSIVE plus

I haven't used it with any kontakt packs like the Puremagnetik or Tonehammer stuff. But my friend said that the Abbey Roads drums were pretty good.

I use it mostly for making percussion or weird sounds out of random samples. Also layering all kinds of different sounds is cool.

The additive envelopes is the best thing for synthesis I've ever used, you can modulate each harmonic in a sound so easily with breakpoint curves. Not to mention everything else it does.

almost as dope as the setup the depeche mode guy has in his studio. It would be so much fun to craft sounds like this...
