Hardware Enhancement for Your Digital Workflow

Bridging the gap of the analog/digital divide, the BCR2000 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 BCR2000 fills with style.

All Hands on Deck

The BCR2000 is an innovative, hands-on control surface with a total of 32 endless rotary encoders for the ultimate control of virtual synths, samplers, effects and signal processors. How about more intuitively controlling your synth or MIDI expander? With the BCR2000 controller this is reality - intuitive control with a real hands-on feel! Unlike using a mouse, the BCR2000 allows you to make multiple adjustments simultaneously - as many as your fingers will allow.

Full-Featured

The BCR2000 is USB compatible, features full MIDI In/Out/Thru capability and 32 endless rotary encoders, each with a 15-element LED indicator. Eight (8) of these rotary encoders have a special push-to-set function, allowing you to select, adjust and control a myriad of functions. Assign a dedicated knob or key to your most frequently used functions and make edits without touching the mouse. Tweak "front panel" settings by simply turning a knob. It's like having the real knobs for every control on the screen! Best of all, discover just how awesome MIDI can be!

Get Hooked Up

Simply connect your BCR2000 to your computer via USB. Then assign and control MIDI/audio sequencers, software mixers or virtual synths/plug-ins with real knobs. You'll spend less time reaching for your mouse and more time enjoying music creation!

Redefine how you make music. Be in control with the BCR2000! Stop by your local BEHRINGER dealer and give those knobs a test twist.

I'm very happy with this device, it is highly programmable without any special software. It took about 5 minutes out-of-the-box for me to plug it into two different table top synths and start controlling hidden parameters on their sound, it really is easy if you're willing to read two manuals side-by-side to set it up. And usually one of the presets layouts is good enough for a starting point. It can also record and play back short MIDI commands allowing for even further flexibility. It can be configured to route USB to MIDI in different ways, I use it as my main MIDI controller with my laptop. I like the feel of the 24 rotaries on the bottom part of the unit the best, but the 8 rotaries on the top are push-button so they are more versatile. I think the things I would change on this device is make all the rotaries smooth feeling but also make them push buttons and provide a small character display instead of 7-segment LED display to ease programming. I would pay extra if they offered a unit in other color LEDs, like green, orange or blue.

Yes, it's mostly plastic, but it feels sturdy. Love the LEDs. Only problem I have is that I got like a returned product or opened box item or something even though I bought it new. It didn't even come in a packaging box, just the retail box with the seal already broken. The power cord bag had a ripped hole and they taped it with scotch tape. And the seller was Amazon, wasn't listed as third party, which was very disappointing.

Other than that the controller seems to be fine. Make sure you go and download the latest Win7 drivers from Behringer.

It's a very good controller. The preset configuration software is strange and clunky but it does work. I've found setting the presets directly on the unit itself to be more enjoyable.

The only issue I've had is that a few of the knobs are kind of 'sticky' because of the imperfect shape and placement of the pots in the holes in the chassis. I've tried using a file to get things working more smoothly with some success. Other than the sticky ones, there is some variation in the inertia of each knob. They're all a little different. I don't consider this a huge deal in practice. It's just a quirk of an otherwise good product.

Got this to work with my Akai Miniak and Casio WK3200. Luckily there's a Yahoo group dedicated to the BCR2000 and BCF2000. Unless you're a midi expert, you're probably going to want to join that if you own one of these. Programming it can be tricky. The "learn" function only works for really simple functions. When you get into specialized stuff you have to know what you're doing. Most Midi implementation charts out there are difficult to work. The Casio ones are listed in Hex, but this unit only takes Decimal.

My only other complaint is the fact that this unit doesn't send negative and positive values from a single control. Hopefully there will be a firmware update someday in the future that fixes that. In the meantime there are workarounds.

It does have the functionality that I was requiring which was a rotary exclusive midi controller, however for some reason I still cannot get used to it, it might sound shallow, but I think that the poor aesthetics (in my opinion) and material feeling of cheap plastic make it a bit less enjoyable to use than other controllers I own.

I bought the Behringer BCR2000 to control the Korg iMS-20 analog synth program on my iPad. Let me say, that it works beautifully! I am so pleased with my purchase of the BCR2000! It was very easy to set up all the controls of the iMS-20 and the BCR2000 works flawlessly and delivers as promised. I am able to control every available setting of the iMS-20 application and it's very cool to turn an encoder on the BCR2000 and see the virtual knobs turning on the iMS-20 app on my iPad!

I spent a lot of time thinking about the best configuration to use to mirror the iMS-20 on the BCR2000. Actually, the configuration of the encoders on the Behringer and the configuration of the virtual knobs on the iMS-20 are almost identical so I only needed to make a few modifications. I also set up a separate preset for the mixer which comes with the iMS-20. This process was made easier because the BCR2000 allows you to set up each encoder or button for any MIDI channel you like.

In short, it's great to be able to turn a physical knob or push a physical button and control the iMS-20 just as though it were a physical device. AND I an control up to 32 devices in the same manner (the BCR2000 has that many presets.) If you have the need to control a MIDI device from an affordable, well-designed MIDI controller, get the BCR2000. You will thank yourself in the morning! ;)

I got this to go with my Juno Alpha 1. It completely opened up the synth (the Alpha one has only one rotary knob).

Setup was as easy as can be. This is one of the best purchase I've ever made for my studio.

Who says you have to spend a ton of loot to get a good product.

Behringer has done it again.

I use this with Ambiloop (get it! it's free and it's awesome!) to control basic volume, pan, FX enable, FX send for all eight tracks, and I've recently changed from Energy-XT to Reaper for my DAW needs.

I use a little NanoKontrol for Reaper's volume and pan, record-enable, etc and the BCR2000 for Bass, Mid, Treble, Mute, Solo, that kind of thing for eight tracks. The EQ is in a VST plugin so I can confirm that the unit can control VST parameters easily. It's a very welcome change from mousing all over the place and a great setup. I've saved my default project to load everything I need at startup and I go from there.

Energy-XT (the free software from Behringer) (at the time of writing) seems to have taken a crap on itself regarding MIDI control (the official support forum is busy with complaints following a couple of recent "upgrades"), so I've switched completely from it, although version 2.5 had pretty good interaction with the BCR2000. Shame, because I'm a paying user. Oh well.

I'm not going to try the Mackie emulation route (I understand it's a LOT easier with a BCF2000) and I don't really need any computer-to-BCR feedback - I have a controller so I'm not likely to be panning with the mouse so why would I expect the unit to respond? I got this for one-way communication and it's doing that very nicely.

Overall it's earning its keep very happily in my little studio and I recommend it to all.
