The exciting new B-CONTROL Series combines the unlimited versatility of today’s audio software with the feel of real controls. It lets you move real faders and turn real knobs to control all the virtual gear in Cubase, Cakewalk, Logic Audio and other major audio software. It’s the intuitive way to control and create music with a real hands-on feel. The choice is yours—knobs (BCR2000) or faders (BCF2000). Tired of using a mouse? Want to control your synth, mixer, effects or signal processor with real controls? Pick the B-CONTROL that matches your “virtual hardware” or cascade them together for the ultimate workstation.

The BCR2000 is an innovative, hands-on control surface with an additional 24 endless rotary encoders for the ultimate control of virtual synths, samplers, effects and signal processors. Tired of using the mouse to turn knobs? 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!

The BCR2000 is USB compatible, features full MIDI In/Out/Thru capability and includes 8 endless rotary encoders, each with a 15-element LED indicator plus a push-to-set function, that let you select, adjust, set 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!

Simply connect your B-CONTROL to your computer via USB. Then assign and control MIDI/audio sequencers, software synths or virtual plug-ins with real knobs—without using your mouse! You’ll spend less time clicking around and more time enjoying your music!

Behringer B-CONTROL ROTARY BCR2000 Reviews

BEHRINGER B-CONTROL ROTARY BCR2000

When I first purchased this product I did have 1 defective dial, however Dolphin Music promptly replaced this with no additional postage fees.
The setup can be quite confusing and difficult to understand at first glance, however the manual does cover the basics but a few web searches helped me alot more.
The software that can be used from Behringer does not actually work, well it gives an error when saving to the device (even after a firmware update) so after learning the manual method for updating the controls I soon got it setup the way I wanted

With multiple presets each consisting of a 4 bank setup for the top rotary dials the possibilities are endless. If your into a more creative method of using these Behringer controllers check out Tim Exiles setup (the man is a genius!)

BCR2000

This is definitely an excellent piece of equipment. And for a number of reasons too. Firstly the price, at just under 100 notes this is well worth the price, and probably has the functions of something worth a lot more.
I bought this as my first bit of kit to use with my PC, and so far it hasn't let me down. If you use reason you are in for a treat because it is so easy to use. Simply 2 clicks on any synth, drum machine, effect, and the BCR2000 will automatically assign each knob for you, lighting the ones which you need to use. Its especially good if you use it with the REDRUM drum computer, because the behringer will act as an efficient drum machine. Alternatively you can program each knob and button yourself for complete control of your tracks. (does not take a lifetime to do at all) This machine is also very efficient using with Ableton, again easily mappable.
I am so happy that I have found this, it really is a great way of extending your interest in music, whether your starting out like me, or a studio pro.
Also look at the BCF2000 to see which machine suits you best. =)
Thank you Behringer for making affordable but quality products.
Arrived very quickly from dolphin also, with excellent support.
I didn't give this a 10/10 because nothings perfect, however I cant think of a reason not to give it top marks!

Bcr2000

This product gets a clear 9 out of 10 for me. The reason it's not a straight 10/10 is the fact that the makers (behringer) leave you to track down your own sysex dump software if you are on a mac.
Not that this is a hard thing to do, its just something they could include in their links to support their product.
Regardless of this however, this is a remarkable product. I use it currently with Propellerheads Reason 3.0.5 and Live 5.2.
What you need to do to do this is to update to the latest BCR2000 firmware via the sysex dump program that you have tracked down.
Once you have done that, then Reason will just automap the device, according to its new remote technology. A breakdown of which can be found on your computer. Which means that the device will be automapped to any and all devices within the reason rack.
This makes working with automation in Reason an absolute breeze.

Under Live, things are a little less preset, but Live works in a substantially more individual way, and so the perfect way for the controller to be set up, is often down to the way that you use the controller. But again, it is very easy to set up and use, and works almost fantastically well.

In both situations however, the BCR2000 will provide feedback about the things it is controlling. This is to say that you assign a knob to a certain parameter, say the volume of track 1, then the led display around that knob, will reflect the live status of that channels level.
So that if you used the mouse to change that level, then the display on the controller would also change.

If you are looking for a versatile, intuitive, robust midi controller, for either editing control or live playback control, I would heartily recommend the BCR2000.

Behringer did it again

This is by far the most versatile controller in this price range. And the coolest.

The unit has 24 rotaries, 8 push-rotaries and 20 push-button controllers, all freely assignable in all midi modes you can imagine, ranging from standard CC to nrpn, to program change and more.
The push-rotaries can be extended over 4 different groups, wich changes the actual 8 push-rotaries to a whopping 32 push-rotaries.
That's 32 rotary + 32 push = 64 midi controllers in the top area alone!
This means you'll have a total of 64 + 20 + 24 = 108 controllers at your disposal.

The controllers are all hi-resolution and all have their own LEDs, which adds to the cool-factor.
The LED patterns on the top 8 push-rotaries can be changed in such a way so that they fit more specifically to a controller. Think of a pan controller for instance, which zeros at midi value 64 rather than midi value 0. You can change the behaviour of the LEDs within seconds.

The layout is cool, the design is cool, there's alot of controlling power at your fingertips and the price is downright unbelievable (185 euros over here in Holland).
An amazing device that gets you hooked on live-controlling the moment you turn that first rotary.

The manual isn't that good however. It's a bit messy and short.
There was no explanation on how to upgrade, nor is everything actually explained.
At time of purchase the box ran on 1.03 firmware but 1.04 firmware was already downloadable from the Behringer site as a sysex file. There's no explanation about this in the manual, nor in the download package. Ofcourse you need to use a sysex send program (Sequencer, MIDI-OX etc) but to those of us lacking that knowledge, it can be a pain to get this figured out.

The manual also speaks of 6 alternate editing modes by using the first 6 push-rotaries. Little did I know until I accidentally turned the 7th push-rotary. It opened up another alternate editing mode (for the LED patterns/behaviour). The 8th push-rotary alternate function enabled a basic On/Off mode.
This is stuff that should have been explained in the manual (or if this occured after upgrade to 1.04, an appendix should have been added in the download package).

All in all, the manual could be much better. The unit itself however is a joy to work with, it has everything you need for true analog feel and control of your soft-synths and hardware gear and an amazing range of controlling power.

Highly recommended.
