The B-CONTROL is an extremely flexible control surface suitable for a wide array of applications. Regardless of whether you want to intuitively control your sequencer software with mixers, plug-ins and virtual instruments, or if you wish to use its broad MIDI functions for controlling rack synthesizers, general MIDI sound generators or effect processors, the B-CONTROL offers you tremendous ease of use that leaves no wishes open.

Hardware Enhancement for Your Digital Workflow
Bridging the gap of the analog/digital divide, the BCF2000 gives you command over your virtual gear in programs like Cubase, Cakewalk, Logic Audio, Ableton, and a multitude of other major audio software apps. While software-based music creation has done much to eliminate the bulky inconvenience of hardware rigs, it has left a void in the realm of tactile, real-time control. It is this void that the BCF2000 fills with style.

All Hands on Deck
The BCF2000 is an innovative, hands-on control surface with ultra-precise 100-mm motorized faders for the ultimate control of virtual mixers, organ-drawbars, synths and samplers. You can make coordinated simultaneous fades that can't be performed with a mouse--and the faders are motorized for automated control!

Full-Featured
The BCF2000 is USB compatible and provides full MIDI In/Out/Thru capability. The eight endless rotary encoders, each with a 15-element LED indicator, have a special push-to-set function that allows you to select, adjust and control a myriad of functions.

Assign a dedicated knob, fader or key to your most frequently used functions and make edits without touching the mouse. Tweak "front panel" settings by simply turning a knob or sliding a fader. It's like having the real knobs and faders for every control on the screen.

Get Hooked Up
Simply connect your BCF2000 to your computer via USB. Then assign and control MIDI/audio sequencers, software mixers or virtual synths/plug-ins with real knobs and faders--without using your mouse! You'll spend less time reaching for your mouse and more time enjoying music creation!

This unit was very easy to set up with PT 8. I googled instructions on how to switch it to baby HUI mode, with in 1 minute PT worked seamlessly with it. Ridiculous low cost and no hassle... this is a no brainer. The transport options are Play and Stop, not really sure if you can assign a REC button, but I bet you can. I love the mute/solo and pan feature. Panning with a mouse stinks. Very small, not bus powered FYI.

I recommend this product. It works very well with Logic when put into Logic Control mode.

For a very well made video series on setting up and using this control surface with Logic Pro, search for "Behringer BCF2000 & Logic Pro user guide - 1/16" on YouTube.

As you may have heard elsewhere, the belts on the faders are set too loose and need to be tightened. It will work fine without modification but it will rattle loudly. Don't expect miracles though; the faders still make rattling noises and you can hear the motors very clearly. These are not fancy faders but they are fast and accurate.

If you don't know if you should get a mixing panel like this and you are currently doing everything with the mouse and keyboard, I say you will probably like having a dedicated interface. I use this for selecting tracks, setting volume and pan, controlling plugin settings, muting & soloing tracks, controlling start, stop, rewind, and fastforward, as well as some other more obscure things.

For recording I find it very useful. I can quickly modify levels so I can hear myself better and the hardware buttons make it easy to start, stop, and restart recordings. No more mouse or keyboard fiddling.

For mixing it is a godsend. Don't concern yourself too much about the motors moving along with automation or moving when you fade with the mouse. It works but Logic isn't that great for automation anyway. The best reason to have motorized faders is just so you have all the faders in the right place when you select a track. I hate using the mouse to move the virtual faders up and down. It is much too sloppy. Hardware faders feel natural and let me work much faster. I can even move multiple faders at once AND there is a function to return a slider to the 0/0dB position.

This is a great controller, especially for the price. At $179, Amazon offers the best price by far. I am looking forward to using it more to mix.

It was very easy to set up. I am running Logic 7 on a Mac Book. I basically plugged it in and set it for "Logic Control".

There isn't much documentation with it, but there is a lot of online fans of this device. This guy even posted a step-by-step tutorial on YouTube [...]

I only have a few concerns. First, the automated faders are somewhat noisy, particularly with slow fades. They nearly rattle. My second concern is labeling. It would be nice to have a blank paper template for each control setting (i.e. Logic control, Mackie control, etc.)

I have been very wary of Behringer products, but I read a lot of positive reviews of the BCF2000. So far, it's been great. Only time will tell, if it warrants a full 5 stars from me.

Took a bit of of web-crawling and work to get it to play nice with Cubase. The documentation is pretty lousy, so if your getting one of these you probably need to know your way around the DAW. Once set up it's been awesome. The faders are nice and responsive, the encoders have a great feel to them and the learning curve is minimal. Print out a few stickers to label the buttons for your use and your good to go, definetly worth it.

I originally bought the BCF2000 because I wanted to use it with the Chameleon Lighting program and it is the only Control Surface that is implemented in Chameleon. It works great for that with no muss or fuss. Then, I saw the 12 Part series on YouTube about using it with the Logic Pro Music program so I started using it for that. The beauty of the BCF2000 is that it has 4 Emulations. For Chameleon, you use the BC mode and for Logic Pro, you use the LC mode. Although it is not explained very well, it is simple to use. When you power the BCF2000 up, you just hold down the specific buttons (1 for BC and 3 for LC) and it takes on the Emulation. On a MacBook running Logic Pro, it recognizes the BCF2000 as a Control Surface and loads all the correct information. It also works well with the Automation in Logic Pro and the Faders are moved as the Automation changes. I agree that the Faders are a little noisy but for my use, it doesn't matter. Another way it can be used in Logic Pro is to associate each Track with a Software Instrument and then just hit the Track Button on the BCF2000 for the specific track and it will change the Instrument without touching the mouse or the Computer Keyboard. You can also adjust the Track Fader on-the-fly if you need to adjust the Volume. So, you can play the MIDI Keyboard with one hand, hit the BCF2000 Track button, and continue playing with a different Instrument. All-in-all, one of the best $200 I have spent in a while.

For this price you will not find another control surface with this flexibility. I've got it controlling Adobe Audition 3 and it is working flawlessly. My ratings for ease of use and features are relative to the price.
Programming the unit is not as simple as some would have you believe, although you can find presets online for most DAWs and I found a template detailing what the default functions are for AA3. Easy to get up and running and with a little googling its simple to figure out what you need to. I would buy it again and have recommended it to everyone I know who has a similar setup at home.
