Behringer BCF2000 MIDI Controller

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.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
just get one, or two. the more the better of these things (they link up)
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.
Features
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.
