Keyboards Music stand for DAWs?

Folks

Here's something I've been trying to solve. Is there something readily available that hooks over a monitor so that I can read sheet music at a keyboard when not using the monitor?

Perhaps this pic explains the problem better than I'm explaining it. At the moment either I prop the music precariously by any means I can find, or I pop a music stand up to the right, but neither are ergonomically pleasing.



Cheers, Howard

music stand

I have one of these table top stands:

Not sure if that could fit the bill but...

Seems that the ceiling of your music room may be under utilized, so a floor music stand hung upside down, then extended to sight level when needed - would totally depend on the stand & your ability to be creative with a mounting..

Great room by the way, what do you use it for?

DAW = Digital Audio Workstation, a computer like a PC or a Mac specialising in audio editting, so in this case I have a keyboard. I use it for two things: either figuring out melodies, or making backing tracks.

Trouble is, screen real estate for audio is all important, but very often it's nice to have good old fashioned sheet music too.

Might have to consider that ceiling option, once I've debugged that anti-gravity device.
