    Yes, I use it as a substitute for a breath controller! :)

    There are many ways building a desk and to build your keyboard and controllers into. My desk is height adjustable and I wanted easy access to everything for maintenance reasons.

    Guys,
    Is anyone experiencing random midi data being continuously sent without user input?

    After a few months without any issue my faderctrl is starting to act funky, it basically keeps sending midi data without me touching it. This obviously make it unusable as I end up with completely messed up recordings (and also screws up things while playing).

    It’s not a vibrations problem or anything like that.

    Thanks,

    Vanni

    Haven't experienced that problem before.

    The hardware works fine for me; the FaderCtrl software no longer works here.

    It is the Fatar keybed from my Doepfer LMK4+

    Wow that is seriously cool. I was going nuts for a good month trying to find a keyboard that fit the ratio of quality keys vs slim enough to fit on my desk (it's higher than my qwerty keyboard so it couldnt be more than 2-3 inches to play comfortably). I think may try your method out. Did you just take the keybed out of the Doepfer? How do you have the wires and electronics set up, are they just free hanging in the back?

    You can buy the parts separately. I shot my doepfer lmk4+ about 5-6 years ago at eBay for €600. Only to take it apart and build it into a desk.

    As I’m not the most talented carpenter it was the only version I could pull of but it turned out to be really useful.

    And to be honest the doepfer controller unit was never of use to me as I’ve used the peavey 1600x until @CACKLAND pulled of the FADERCTRL and since then my plan was to replace the doepfer slider and modwheel unit with that.

    I also took mine apart and built it into my Argosy desk.

    Wow that set up is awesome!! I really have to look at doing something like this. How do you route the electronics?

    I like your desk! The other challenge I had to tackle was to build mine on top of that sit/stand desk frame.
