Dream Desk Setups with Autonomous and Landon Bytheway (Part 2)

In today’s post, we’re continuing to highlight the dark and moody editing suite of Landon Bytheway — film maker, content creator, and father to the cutest little baby boy (we love you Gus!)

Fifty shades of black

Speaking of mice, Landon’s choice of mouse is a stellar performer and an attractive one at that. The Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse is designed for professionals, creatives, coders, and all other advanced users looking to get more done in the most efficient way. The regular mouse just got way more multi dimensional. With an additional thumb wheel and buttons, you can now scroll horizontally and move forward and backwards between pages. And with the most advanced tracking technology, the advanced wireless mouse can be used on any surface. Even glass! Keeping the MX Master 2S powered is as easy as pie. Plug the wireless mouse into your computer via micro-USB cable and get fully charged in just 3 short minutes with a full charge lasting a crazy 70 days of use! Despite all its bells and whistles, for us the most standout feature of Landon’s Logitech mouse is its unique ergonomic shape and beautiful design which perfectly supports the hand and wrist in an optimal position of comfort. The streamlined curves of the shell and alluring faceted diamond texture of the thumb pad looks like an absolute dream to hold.

Landon’s sleek arsenal of all black accessories doesn’t end there. Of course every professional film/audio editor needs a bomb set of headphones and the Limited Edition DT 770 PRO Headphones from beyerdynamic are a top-notch choice. German made, the circumaural headphones provide professional sound when used in the studio or with your mobile devices. These are no entry level headphones, beyerdynamic specially designed these babies for critical music and sound monitoring, providing a perfectly neutral listening environment with exceptional isolation and top-notch impulse response. High frequencies are translated into an analytical and differentiated sound, while the innovative bass reflex system means that ultra-low bass sounds are defined and reproduced crisply.

A lot of the time with over-ear headphones, users tend to complain about discomfort over prolonged times of use. But the DT 770 PRO headphones have you covered. Literally. They provide high wearing comfort during every editing hour thanks to the soft, circumaural, and replaceable ear pads. The soft ear cups mean that Landon can wear his headphones all day long for prolonged periods without any strain or nagging pressure. The ultimate comfortable and secure fit is further guaranteed thanks to the rugged, adjustable, soft padded spring steel headband construction. And the single sided cable allows the headphones to be put on and taken off frequently without tangling any cables. We all know what a headsore cable management can be.

Got wood?

Have you read our first installment of Dream Desk Setups with Autonomous yet? Just as Pedro Gil echoed the bright beauty of oak in his minimal and clean desk setup, Landon uses the gorgeous, rich, deep walnut finish of his table top to dictate his choice of droolworthy accessories and accents. We have to admit, the first thing that caught our eye with Landon’s dream desk were his divine audio monitors. The Sixes Powered Speakers from Klipsch stand at 42.55 cm tall and command our immediate attention. With their deep matte walnut shade and wholesome grain of the real wood veneer, Landon breaks up all that dark space and utilizes a much needed organic warmth to frame his tech setup. And if you’re looking for something a little darker and moodier, the impressive speakers also come available in a deep ebony wood veneer.

The Sixes Powered Speakers deliver room-filling sound in one tight package thanks to a custom-engineered built-in amplifier that maximizes output and produces crisp sound quality. The high efficiency amplification completely eliminates the need for any external amp, producing a convenient, self-contained audio system that is truly immersive and complete. We also adore the high lustre of the spun copper switches and knobs, which only helps to boost the luxe factor of Landon’s home desk setup.

Now can we please get an ‘Amen’ for Landon’s sharp attention to detail. It’s little touches like these that leave us tickled pink! That lone ENTER keycap in premium quality black walnut wood from WINGOFFLY is freaking genius. The wooden mechanical keyboard keycaps come in a variety of keycap options and are ergonomically handcrafted to provide the perfect typing experience. They are non-backlit, have no lettering to comply with a clean and minimal modern aesthetic, and are compatible with all Cherry MX key switches. The perfect way to add a personalized, understated, and tasteful flair to your basic peripherals.

Stay connected

We’ve talked a lot about Landon’s tasty and clean aesthetics. About handsome colorways and rich natural textures. Let’s round things off today by focusing on function. For any tech junkie, budding photographer, gamer, or content creator, we all know that you can never have enough ports. The beauty of Landon’s choice of USB-hub is that the Aluminium Type-C Clamp Hub Pro from Satechi blends seamlessly with the brushed aluminium chrome of his iMac computer. Exclusively designed for the iMac Pro and iMac (2017 and newer), adjustable knobs securely fasten the hub to the bottom of your iMac display for fast and convenient access without any need for fussy installation. The hub instantly provides a USB-C data port, three USB 3.0 ports, and a Micro/SD card reader slot, all through a single USB-C connection. Transferring and backup is a breeze, with all of your gadgets, cameras, and smart tools, easily connected to the front of your computer display.
