Audiofanzine FR's review

Behringer B-Control Deejay BCD3000
(Originally written by Madmike/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Which technical specifications motivated your choice?

I used a BCD2000 two years. But I updated my computer to a Macbook with Mac OS X and only the 3000 is compatible with it.

What do you use it for?

I use it for mixing in parties (indoor and outdoor, lounge and deep house ambiance).

What's your setup (motherboard, CPU, RAM, hard drive,...)?

Black 2.4 Macbook with Mac OS X

- Do you use it with other instruments or systems (mixing console, preamp, DtD, ...) and what's your setup?

With the professional sound system of the place (sometimes the sound technician is also provided LOL) or directly connected to active P.A. speakers.

UTILIZATION

- Did you have any problems during the installation?

No, it was much simpler than with the 2000 (see my tutorial ( http://www.mcdsound.com/2007-07/bcd2000-and-traktor-tutorial/ ))

- Did you have any incompatibility problems?

No but you have to download the update before installing.

- How complicated is the overall configuration?

The overall configuration is easy but it's better if you already know Traktor.

- Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?

User's manual? Never read it =)

GETTING STARTED

Is the driver stable?

Yes but I disable the wi-fi function of my Mac since it sometimes slows down the audio streaming. I guess its due to the Mac's hardware architecture.

I never had this problem with the 2000 and a PC but I did disable the anti-virus when mixing.

It works pretty smoothly when the wi-fi is disabled.

- Which software do you use?

Tracktor 3

- What's the latency of your system?

Few ms. You can adjust it but you won't feel it anymore under 10 ms.

- How many tracks can you record/playback simultaneously?

Traktor 3 is conceived for 4+1 tracks (4 playback sources + 1 HDD recording track). But I have only tested it with 3 playback sources or 2 sources + recording. It works great, perhaps a bit slower only (especially the pre-listening function)

OVERALL OPINION

I got it a few days ago and it works perfectly with my Macbook.

But I had to return the first one I got because the right jog was faulty.

Considering that I haven't found a real competitor product on the market I would definitely choose this one again.

The opportunity to spend a large disco bar;
The XLR and RCA phono connectors;
The small box effects built;
Traktor 3LE software supplied with the machine.

The-:
Mic on one channel and not talk over;
No flightcase appropriate;
One or two bugs that really require a true disco bar.

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

The Deejay BCD2000 Behringer Control includes features similar configuration but with a harder ...

How would you rate the quality / price?

Already excellent in 2009, it is even better now, the product price has been reduced (in Belgium) by the importer!

With experience, you do again this choice?

At the time, yes, it was the best solution for the use of computers in dances without having paid big bucks for, say, the Xone: 4D ...

Behringer B-Control Deejay BCD3000
I wanted to put me a mixer and as a student, I did not go beyond the budget of € 200. I chose the most complete (in terms of functionality), despite a good majority of negative opinions on Behringer in general. It was exactly two years ago and it still works.
I use it at home or meeting friends and I happened to use it once or twice in garden party.

UTILIZATION

The drivers are a real nuisance! Those who are lucky to arrive to run properly without worries, but in my case, I had blue screens and crashes traktor in times when it really had not and I struggled to make DNSC live with two Denon 2000. Still, I finally managed to find a configuration of traktor and I (almost) more problems.

GETTING STARTED

Installation is easy, an outlet, a USB port and it installs the driver, it is opened traktor matter. TSI and go. :)

OVERALL OPINION

Two years of use, I do not regret because it was a good compromise at the time.
I would do this choice in the same way as when I bought it but now there are more interesting choices.
I combined two DNSC 2000 (in view of replacing the BCD by a mixer noon) and I have fun with good.

On the other hand, the quality is bad (although ugly plastic) but you know it is weak then we try to be careful.
Mine has suffered repeated attacks by flying beer and fell several times but it still survive and everything works perfectly.

Finally it is not bad for a product that many people advised me to buy. ;)

- Macbook OSX.6, 1GoRAM, 2.16Ghz Core 2 Duo.


UTILIZATION

What software do you use most often?
-TraktorLE & Traktor Studio 3

What latency you get?
- Very low (Using MAC OS, I do not know what it could give Windows.


GETTING STARTED

Installation is it not working?
- On Mac's Plug & Play)

The manual is clear and sufficient?
- Very basic but adequate.

The general configuration is easy?
- Assigning personal relatively simple in Traktor.

OVERALL OPINION

For how long have you been using it?
- A few weeks ...

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
- Numark stealth control, I did not choose because no onboard sound and I found a tiny bit.

What thing do you like most/least about it?
+ Ease of use
+ Plug & Play
+ Compatibility with Traktor

- I bought this controller for the onboard sound and its relatively low price, gold, I still have not pre headphones that bothers me a bit (BCD2K Connecting via USB, and audio output from Jack Macbook)
- I found myself from the start with a wheel much harder to turn than the other.
- For the price we're not going to complain ... ;)

What is your opinion about the value for the price?
- Good value for money in my opinion.

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
- Yes, at the same time we do not find this cheaper "quality".
Ideal to try their hand at the condition of not being too demanding.

Fetid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer B-Control Deejay BCD3000
- What characteristics have motivated your choice?
The presence of the Jog Wheel, or I thought was MS Audio Torq
- For what purpose?
Domestic evenings
- What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?
Recent desktop PC type

UTILIZATION

- The installation is done it without problems?
No, I spent the night, fortunately there are forums that explain properly
- Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
No I have not tested everything, but some soft mix definitely seems to ignore the buttons and fader of the BCD
- The general configuration is easy?
No, but after that we found the right subject in the correct forum, it gets better
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
It is empty. And I like that I am not familiar terms, it gives me the impression of being price for a kid who reads a notice of a game Vache Qui Rit

GETTING STARTED

- The drivers are stable?
Yes, I think
- Are they often updated?
No, I think so, an update available
- What software do you use most often?
Traktor
- What you get lag?
Correct
- How many tracks you get to record / play time? ...
2, see 4 (but the last 2 c is a mouse), however the mix has two digital turntables c is a bit Hasbeens should leave a three decks interface

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
two days
- What is so special that you like most and least?
+ for all is, to say the least, the choice of interface effects on the BCD is zero (in any case I m not use), the fader too long, notched zero point of pitch, the cross fader too loose, faders and pitch too close to the jog, it mixes with tweezers or fingers of fees, the buttons are plocploc that do not light up when you select them, can take pressed twice (in the case of irritating Play / Cue), the sound is strange, you end up with something quickly out of focus.
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, I discover, wonder how we can take pleasure in mixing with ca, I miss my vinyl.
- How would you rate the quality / price?
Ben is not too expensive, so should not complain too much, it was worth our money, but no more.
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
ever, it was to discover what kind of interface, the next will be more of a craft.

Ah little precision, packaging, is lamentable, that sense lugging ca 200 euros.

I received the console with the jog pad left twisted, seemingly before sending it repaired by a technician and a pen (we see the brand), it remains tjrs twisted, and thus hangs from time to time (very convenient for scroll pieces, default or not, we should not hope to scratch anything), the Service recommends to twist my in the other direction, on the phone ...
Otherwise, the law seems legeremnt flu, as if he had rust, and talking about rust, and Output Inpout legeremnts are rusty.
In short Behringer product dead cheap machines, stored, or I do not know, with a surface quality control, so this seems to be buying a lottery shot.
I maile twice their customer service, which is supposed to respond in 24 hours, I Always expect the answers.
Then I think shall replace the product, but the telephone did not like the seller.
Buy another brand
(Behringer, if you read me, I am trying to publish photos of the machine that you sent me, answer me quickly)

UTILIZATION

Crashes rare day out of place I know.
Used with Traktor

But I have a problems with a vertical pitch of pots ... like a lot of people ...

And the two "jogs" that serve scatcher do not work: if you press the button rpond not scratch the table above (while his fate still ..) is limited if we can find a place in a runway!

Behringer B-Control Deejay BCD3000
BCD3000 with traktor, motivating the price! otherwise, vestax vci-1000 and sound card

domestic and more!

macbook 2.16 160gigas 5200trs / 2gig ram osx 10.4.10

use on Tapco s8

UTILIZATION

Installation without major concern

incompatibility no, but against the pblm since install of drivers. os x n'apprcie more harman kardon reconnect USB, bypassing the system's SNCP. dcocher and "built-Aggregated ininput". otherwise freeze Systm ensured.

configuration is quite clear gnrale

not need the manual

GETTING STARTED

Stability of the driver, I can not say. if only after some use, the potentiomtres gains become crazy and I swings in volumes, see even a boiled trs not sound cool

set the day of the BCD3000 driver, I'm still waiting

I use it exclusively with traktor 3.2.2 mac-intel. I did the update 3.3, I uninstalled the LEDs LED does not light up under 3.3. and I do not will appreciate the redesign (partial) of the interface. I have not seen the progress of this release.

latency 5.5ms (default value qd I launch the application)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since July with more or less successfully

I love the south of CONTRL all custom settings of the software! ! At least those MAPPS ds tks file provided by native instrument: the lack of MIDI control by individual effects traktor plate (four are, however, rotating the top of the console)
The least, I would like a stability (reliability of its

report qualitprix I tend to say that that price, there is no miracle. is a Intgr (noon, sound card) with a quality finish scary! (Ex: be gentle with RCA connection that comes out of Casing! Buttons frankly "LGERS", etc.)

with the same budget if so, I would turn gladly home Vestax VCI-100 with a sound card or even from vestax, Allgemeine version of the vci-100 but team card sound.

Bibinz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer B-Control Deejay BCD3000
- What technical specifications motivated your choice?
Map integration and therefore precoute.
Tracktor 3 LE comes with the console: the package is complete
Everything is modifiable by hard (it uses the PC only to get the title and drag on the plate).
Low, medium, treble adjustable by, Kill for everyone, we really feel like a DJ table hands.

- For what purpose?
Sional and personal

- What is your config (motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?
I have a laptop that has almost 2 years: Centrino 1.5 GHz 512 MB RAM, 80 MB hard drive
It turns nickel, even on my old machine.

- Which instruments or Systmes (console, prampli, DTD ...) you use it and how connections? ...
I use it with either a string (personal) is on a system of sound (about 2 Kw)

UTILIZATION

- Installation is it without problem?
Install in 2 minutes without any problem.

- Have you experienced any incompatibility?
RAS

- The configuration gnrale is easy?
I have not configured!

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Just need the manual.

GETTING STARTED

- The drivers are stable?
The whole console / PC never plant for now

- Are they often put day?
For now, I did not make up days

- What software do you use most often?
Tractor LE (bundled with the console)

OVERALL OPINION

I have this material since August 2007.
What I like most:
- Ease with which one can mix: the syncro works nickel
- The sound of the console gnral: I was nervous: in a stream MP3 sound system via a console 250 ... Well that's all that honorable as his !

What I like least:
To send a piece, it must select and drag one of the control panels. Sometimes, tracktor only take the first piece of the list (you can select any song, he wants to read that first). In this case, you must exit the directory or files are located and re-enter the directory. It's a small bug that will certainly be corrected in the future ... Hope because it is really the only ngatif I found this console

- How do you report qualitprix?
I pay 232, and for that price, there is the console and software.
I think the report is Qualitprix trs good.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
No hsitation
