Firstly, the DoepferMBP25 works well, and does exactly what it suggests - it converts keystrokes to midi. However, unlike other Doepfer units, it's midi sockets are on fly cables and not on the board, so be prepared to desolder these so that they can be mounted on the box and re-attach.

The Fatar Keybed is a workable unit, and easy to cut to length. But that also means it's pretty flexible. You need to anchor it very well to a very stiff base. It will need extra anchor points, I used the gaps in the missing black notes to add screw down points.

To remove the extra C, you need to cut through the tracks on the circuit board. That means you have to put fly cables in to replace the missing part of the circuit board. Best way is to scratch some of the green resin off the remaining track and 'tin' the copper, solder the wire from this to the underside of the corresponding component.

Lastly, you must be prepared to remake all the key contact joints on the circuit board. Don't chase individual faults, just resolder the lot. The soldering on both my sets were poor, but resoldering was a complete cure, there were no mechanical issues.Don't let this put you off!

So it's cheap and effective, and not difficult to build - but needs a bit of work.

It is what it is...

I wanted to have the opportunity to play bass notes to the guitar.
Controllers like Softstep etc. did not really convince me, most of the finished bass pedals have only one octave or - despite some archaic age of the models - exaggeratedly expensive for what they do.
So I ordered this kit.

The material of the pedals is very simple thermoforming plastic and especially the long brown pedals look pretty ugly. But you can disassemble it well and I finally decided to paint it.
Originally, I had thought of replacing them with solid wood - the fairly simple construction of the mechanism would have allowed it - but it was then too costly for me.
The black pedals are optically okay for me.

What's really stupid is the back board. It is unnecessarily high beyond the pedal and thus requires a fairly tall housing. She is also very unstable and I always had the installation, she would break when installing. It all went well, but that is definitely the weakest point - it seems like the pedal was designed for a particular case where this is not a problem, you could just as well make it all the more compact.

What you should think about is that the two pedals are very wide next to each other. Also, I was not so comfortable with the instructions for sawing off and removing a pedal in the middle.
I then had the idea to attach the two pedals on top of each other, in a stepped housing, the upper layer about 14cm offset to the rear. I tried a lot because I was unsure if this could be played, but it turned out that this position works very well and the space gain and the short distances for the foot compensate for the very complex construction - and I did not have to saw off.

Döpfer does not develop the electronics any further, so my request to see if the Expression Pedal could be used with anything other than CC7 / Volume could not be crowned with success.
Ultimately, I packed the electronics inside the case, as I'll probably never use them.

Instead, I've written a controller script for Bitwig Studio that allows me to freely transpose the pedals and assign any controller to the expression pedal - and if I have any other ideas with it, I'll implement them in software.

All in all I am very satisfied.
