While it's true that you can do just about every part of music production within your DAW, it's often easier and more gratifying to get your hands on real controls rather than turn virtual knobs and slide virtual faders with keyboard commands or a computer mouse. For those of you who prefer to have a physical control surface from which to work, Behringer offers the BCF2000 MIDI controller outfitted with eight precise motorized faders, eight rotary encoders, and a slew of keys for easy assigning and editing. The BCF2000 puts you in command of your software instruments and music-production software, giving you real-time, hands-on control of organ-drawbars, synths, samplers, virtual mixers, and more. Connect the MIDI controller to your computer via USB and you're good to go.

Tactile, Real-Time DAW Control

Whether your production weapon of choice is Steinberg Cubase or Ableton Live, Behringer's BCF2000 can put you in the driver's seat of your DAW. The compact, USB-compatible controller provides full MIDI In/Out/Thru capability, so you can connect to your MIDI or audio sequencers, software mixers, and virtual synths or audio plug-ins loaded on your computer.

Send Your Mouse into Retirement

Thanks to the BCF2000's 100 mm motorized faders, you can perform all those smooth, coordinated fades that simply can't be done with a mouse. Automated control, here we come. Likewise, eight endless rotary encoders, each with a 15-element LED indicator and a push-to-set function, make it a breeze to select, adjust, and control software functions. Assign knobs, faders, or keys to your most-used functions, and do all your edits in real time, directly from the BCF2000 control surface. Twenty buttons, four of which are illuminated, are freely assignable to all types of MIDI functions, from Note On/Off, Control Change, and Program Change to MMC and system exclusive data.

A small, multi-function, four-digit LED display shows you what's going on with your parameters, in real-time, while offering write-in fields for your own labeling. Straight-forward in design and intuitive to use, the Behringer BCF2000 gives you exactly what you need to control your virtual instruments.

Product Description

Bridging the gap of the analog/digital divide, the Behringer BCF2000 gives you command over your virtual gear in programs like Cubase(r), Cakewalk(r), Logic(r) Audio, Ableton(r), 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 Behringer 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.

A Full-Featured Controller

The BCF2000 is USB compatible and provides full MIDI In/Out/Thru capability. The eight (8) 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 -- best of all, discover just how awesome MIDI can be.

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. Redefine how you make music. Be in control with the BCF2000.

Features:

- Unique, total-recall, cascadable desktop MIDI controller with analog feel and intuitive user interface
- 8 ultra-precise, 100-mm, motorized faders for ultimate control of virtual mixers, organ-drawbars (inverse mode) or virtual synths and samplers

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (112 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "wow guys, this is da bomb"
Sound: just amazing, my recordings are so much better now thanks to the ease of use from the bcf2000. I can concentrate on making music finally. Feature: emulates baby hui and mackie, as well as allowing customized programming??? better than all other control surfaces in my opinion because of this. I can run ANYTHING with it, even pro tools. Quality: perfect I guess. nothing's wrong with the build of my unit. Great stuff. dropped it even and it keeps on working. Don't recommend dropping any control surface or mixer though, just for the record. Value: simply blows away the competition for versatility and compatibility and price (like less than half the price). Manufacturer Support: they've helped me get setup, helped me through a blue screen problem (which turned out to be sonar related), quick response, excellent english, technically smart yet talking to me in language I can understand. The Wow Factor: it's soooo sexy, flying motorized faders, flashing red leds all over the place. Very kewl, very professional too. Overall: just get one, or two. the more the better of these things (they link up)
Style of Music: rock, pop, dance

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A excellent DAW controller at price we all can afford!"
Sound: This is a control device and doesn't actually alter the quality of the sound. I use the BCF2000 to control the faders, pan, solo, mute and such on my DAW recording software. In regards to sound, what is important is it controls the DAW actions without introducing buzz, hum or unwanted electronic noise. Feature: I am finding that this controller does pretty much what it advertises. The faders are smooth and accurate. The buttons and knobs feel well made. The transport buttons layout could be done better, with a dedicated forward/back/pause/stop/record layout. Ease of Use: Here, some users may find that setting up the controller to work with their particular software can be a bit of research. I use Reaper as my primary DAW (recording/mixing software). The BCF2000 didn't come with setup instructions or drivers for Reaper, specifically. But, due to the great folks at the Reaper forum I quickly had everything I needed to get my new controller up and running. I should say that it does come with everything necessary for a sizable list of well known DAWs. Quality: This controller is about a third the cost of most comparable units, so I had some pre-purchase reservations about the low price. So far, I can say that this is a quality made unit that does its job very well. Value: Although, depending on which DAW you use it with, it may require a bit of tinkering to setup, it is an excellent choice for the cost. Manufacturer Support: No service related contact with this company. The Wow Factor: This is a neat machine. It looks great on your mix desk, and it performs. What else can you ask? Overall: This is a difficult question. We all want bigger and better. To me it always falls on usability to cost ratio. Will I use and appreciate the better work flow this controller provides; or will it sit gathering dust after the initial "Gee whiz" factor wears off. So far, The Behringer BCF2000 is getting used every mixing session I've done.
Style of Music: Many styles

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
