2 Benq BL 3200 32 inch monitors. The 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution is something of a sweet spot for many computer users. It offers a good deal of ‘pixel real estate’ for desktop tasks and delivers a good dose of detail without being overly taxing on mid-high end GPUs. This is a perfect monitor for workstations. It’s not 4K but offers sufficient resolution and at the same time native font sizes are not too small.

2 MDR Sony 7506 Headphones
The MDR-7506 is a staple within the recording, film and live arenas. Due to its low impedance and closed-ear design, these headphones do an outstanding job of cutting down background noise while providing plenty of volume in the studio or in the field. Additionally, the closed design helps eliminate headphone bleed when overdubbing in the studio.
The MDR-7506 is an over-ear design and is ideal for use with MIDI workstations, camcorders, or other equipment with less than powerful headphone amplification. The headphone has a foldable design, making it convenient to store or transport, and its coiled cable allows it to stretch and spring back into place whenever you need a bit more reach.

A selected range of additional sounds include electric pianos, strings, organs, and synths, choirs and special sound effects. The keyboard has full Bluetooth interconnectivity.
The SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology utilized in the instrument reproduces the entire sound-creation process of an acoustic piano, including the combination of notes played, their resonance, and the way in which the piano’s many elements interact with each other. It is a perfect addition to the Composer Workstation.
DSI Left Handed Mechanical Keyboard
This keyboard has the Number Pad on the left side which makes it ideal for Finale Key Shortcut Entries.

For example each number key has an assigned note value e.g “5” for quarter notes. the “+” and “-” key allow to enter sharps and flats. Also the arrow and delete keys can easily be accessed and used to control the Note cursor in Finale.
Ergonomically this is of the best solution for rapid Manual Finale Entry.
This is a three-pedal unit for the company’s FP-90 digital piano that adds sustain, sostenuto, and the soft-control functionality commonly found on grand pianos. It is custom built and part of the Composer Workstation keyboard drawer support system with a special undercarriage and multiple casters.
