Behringer B-Control Rotary BCR2000
I have been using the B Control Rotary BCR2000 in Cubase and even in Logic on my Mac for a long time now. The control surface of the BCR2000 gave me complete control over all of my virtual synths that I was using. This unit is so well made it actually feels like knobs that are on some expensive Motif or Fantom keyboards. You can have 4 groups and 32 presets with each group. It can be connected to your computer through USB or through standard MIDI connections. Using the BCR2000 will change the way your workflow is without a problem. It will take some time to fully remember how you have everything set up if you choose to save it as a preset, because there really are not any labels or any places to put labels so you can remember. There are blank spaces so you can write in your own labels that you may want but I just don’t like that because it can get sloppy if you want to move things around or change things up after time using a pen then having to scratch out words and write more. The unit has a good weight to it, it does not feel cheap or plastic like. It does also come with a power connection to a wall outlet.

Using it with Reason was probably the easiest to set it up with and start using it. Cubase took a little more work and so did Logic. It also runs great in Ableton Live and Sonar. It is very versatile and can be used to control anything you want. As long as you are using Windows XP or higher then it will work with your system. If you do need some new drivers you can easily download them from Behringer’s website and you can also get all of the support you need. This unit is also backed by a factory warranty as long as the damage is not your fault they will fix it or give you a new one.

Behringer B-Control Rotary BCR2000
I've been using it for one month.
It's my first Midi controller.

No latency with Traktor, Scratch Pro, Ableton, etc.
Enough space between the controls
Endless rotary controls are useful when you change presets in Ableton.

Plastic construction (same applies to the UC-33)
I had to return it after two days because a switch didn't work properly.
B-CONTROL software never works: too many bugs with a PC, doesn't support Mac.
No slipmaps for the different presets, like on the UC-33 and Xone 2D/1D.
Not enough faders.

Good value for money: huge possibilities and really affordable.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again with the same budget. In spite of the faults and cons, it's a very good controller. Good product for low budgets! I just tried out the UC33 and it's much too small! I don't understand how people can mix with it.

Behringer B-Control Rotary BCR2000
about 4 months of repeated use
I fly in old synth MIDI
I love how quickly parameterize the bypass, the two outputs
I do not like the system to put labels and annotate my settings, I went to POST IT, I do not like the plastic casing.

record is available, the possibilities are enormous, including making a chaining between BCR
USB is a genius idea
ca ages if one considers the known mine to live, and now the technival my room.
I do not bugg, no latency, apparent led witnesses are MIDI messages sent receipts and

I have a mini pride to see that Laurent Garnier, Daft Punk and JUSTICE also fly with AC, like what, at behringer, there's also good stuff

Behringer B-Control Rotary BCR2000
First midi controller. It responds perfectly to my requests, and when it is configured noon, no problem with live.

Very good value for money, I use it for 5 months.

Miss it just a little to set the sensitivity settings of each knob and would be perfect.

Also spotted some bug in the plug in usb.

Documentation is perfect.

Behringer B-Control Rotary BCR2000
Since 2009.

My first controller with knob.

Y has the knob, the knob and the knob again, you never miss a knob of this unit.

Against by the materials used are not tip-top, it is far from axioms (and not it's not the top of the basket. A gesture with moderate use and advise (my son 4 years old has already broken a knob, j ' neamoins have been the pick).

The system LED couple of knobs without purpose is genial, shame that only the knob of the first row are the knobs / buttons.

Some knob are more or less precise, but for the price it's quite frankly.

My advice to those on a budget who want to manipulate Deeper sound has excessive live.

Reason on happiness, I do not see the usefulness of Ableton Live (the BCF2000 is more appropriate).

Behringer B-Control Rotary BCR2000
I train for over 6 years, it is always the same model. After dozens of trips by plane, car, train, he is still running without any problems! My favorite working tool for its flexibility.

the +
- Light
- Cheap
- Robust (for plastic)
- You plug and go, wreaths and led aficheur can accurately handle

the -
- The only downside for me not to go from 0 to 127 by noon it should turn a lot and it requires a steady hand ...

Realaze's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Masterstroke."

Behringer B-Control Rotary BCR2000
How long you use it?

5 years.

What is so special that you love the most, least?

The price.

No faders (but then I quibble to death).

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

No, but I scoured the net, and the only controller that was approaching the Mackie was costing four times the price.

How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice?

Quality / price excellent, I did everything with this controller, I took him everywhere, in the worst conditions, and it still works perfectly. When I speak of the fragility of Behringer, I answered BCR.

Maybe I would hesitate if I were forced to change banks, or get married, or have the operation of schizophrenic brain by a chimpanzee, but not to buy a BCR.

Behringer B-Control Rotary BCR2000
I have been using 1moi.
this is my first midi controller.

The +:
zero latency in traktor scratch pro, ableton ...
space between buttons
endless knobs very useful when changing presets in ableton.

the -:
quality plastic (such as UC-33)
I had to send it in for repair after 2 days because one of the top push knobs had a bad contact.
B-CONTROL software that never works and its beug mac it can not even find my table.
Lack of slipmaps adapted to different presets like those supplied with the UC-33 or Xone 2D/1D.
missing a few sliders.

good value for money, it's really cheap and the possibilities are enormous.
Jereferai this choice without hesitation with this budget is a very good controller despite these defects, and my apprehension about the brand ... Certainly I mix on a Pioneer but hey this is cool so the price for all low budget I strongly advice rather than the CPU 33 that I just had the time to test and which is really a handheld console! I do not understand how anyone could mix with it (which is what most people who buy it).

- For how long have you been using it?
It's been a little over <span style="text-decoration: underline;">a year,</span> but I did <span style="text-decoration: underline;">a lot used for 6 months.</span>

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
The +: the <span style="text-decoration: underline;">number of knobs, price,</span> number of presets available, the <span style="text-decoration: underline;">endless knobs,</span> and everything what!
The -: <span style="text-decoration: underline;">no fader,</span> but hey, if there is BCF2000 was what I wanted!

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
I do not remember how much I had paid the 130 € in nine if I remember correctly, so I would say <span style="text-decoration: underline;">good value for money</span>

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Without hesitation!</span> I now buy a Hercules MK2 just to mix, it's still more convenient than 3 lines of knobs, and there's two RCA stereo outputs!

Ah yes, I use it with <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Fruity Loops, Virtual DJ.</span>
