Do you play sitting or standing?

Hey guys I was just thinking if switching my stance could help me improve my game. So I'm asking, do you play sitting or standing up?
If sitting, do you use your lap or a little table?
If standing, what kind of table do you use? the renegade or something else?

Have you tried both and found any differences in your performance?

I play sitting with the controller on my lap. I'm pretty good but not excellent yet. I'm missing 2 songs to five star everything on expert. And I have found that SOMETIMES the controller moving around can be a bit of a problem, so maybe I could use a more stable base... I'll try standing up as soon as I find a little table with the right height.

I stand and use the renegade stand. I just like to make the game as realistic as possible

Sitting at my computer desk with the controller on it, with studio headphones on one ear.. The only way to play.

By suggestion from someone on the Xbox forums I tried an ironing board to play standing up and it worked GREAT! it felt a little weird at first, but by the second song I was good to go.

It absolutely improved my game. The FURIOUS scratching on 'beats and pieces' were easier to pull off and I managed to 5 star it on expert with just a few tries. So now I have the achievement

So yeah, if you haven't, try this game standing up, it makes you better and it makes it feel WAY more real, you get into it A LOT more.

w00t!

I usually use my lap, but on some of the more intense songs, I put it on the coffee table.

so you can play better if you put it on table?

So far, I've only played sitting down with the turntable in my lap, but after a while my button/scratching wrist starts hurting. I may try sitting at a table at some point; but I don't have a table tall enough to play standing up on.

I used to play sitting down with it on my lap but it didn't feel right. I got a stand as a gift and it is the only way I play now. Feels much more natural...

For what it's worth, I five-starred Expert sitting down the entire time

However I had my turntable on my desk, not on my lap

I play with the controller on a card table while sitting in a chair. Works great for me.

I can't believe no one else has mentioned this yet:

I put the box it came in on my lap and the controller on the box. It's a flat surface and lifts the controller to a much more comfortable distance.

stand maybe?

Maybe I should try standing. I seem to suck at sitting and playing, plus never see a DJ sitting down when they are.
