Behringer B-Control Nano BCN44
(Originally written by fabamarie/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I've owned it for nearly two years. In the beginning, I didn't understand a thing about Midi but one day I discovered its huge possibilities. It allows you to control virtually everything depending on the software sequencer you use. With Cubase SX3 it's great. The fact that you can control the zoom function manually allows you to work fast and be more precise, even though you need two controllers to zoom in and out. But considering the large number of possibilities this unit provides, that's not a problem. The knobs are push knobs so you also get eight buttons for each configuration: play, stop, record, 1 or 2 markers, scissors and eraser tools, full zoom out... Everything can be freely configurable and it's a true pleasure.

This sturdy and compact battery or PSU operated unit is really versatile.

I don't regret this purchase. I always carry it with me or have it in my drawer with my keyboard.

Editing takes a long time, the user's manual is very bad and I've never been able to use the learn function successfully.

It's been four days that I have the product. She cot 55 (!)
The BCN44 is really Aesthetics, all plastic but rather good quality though compact, the product despite its lgret inspires confidence.
The knobs are quite enjoyable handle.
This document is not trs well damn, I put a little time to assimilate the principle configuration bte.
Possibility to run the product on batteries (for a very practical solution compltement nomadic), and comes with the AC adapter.
THE BCN44 has 99 memory, with 6 presets of origin records (which can SARC) that give a good apperu its versatility in terms of CONTRL.

It is a versatile product trs, for my leave, I used to make surface supplmentaire numrique my piano Yamaha P80 keyboard matre a worthy (and yes, no modulation, pitch bend and another knob the P80!)
Indeed, with the function merge (the shuffled dernire can give the Midi input re-entering the Midi In and shuffled with the MIDI data by gnres The BCN44), I come out of the P80 on the BCN44 and this allows me to have now, CONTRL modulation and pitch bend! Gnial for CONTRL finally my virtual library of sounds often asked a modulation wheel for some CONTRL parameter.

The Rotary Controller has a dual function: when you turn them, they will be given a parameter CONTRL and when pressed, they contrlent another paramtre ... it's pretty clever ...
The "Learn" is really convenient, it's a good more ...

I would say just a little BMOL, but it is a request n'intressera almost hyper staff person:
In addition to this function gnial Merge, Behringer would have had the good ide to get a fitter to give to the incoming VLOC BCN44, with the possibility of increasing or decreasing values VLOC with notte of the use of curves VLOC.
Thus, low to give VLOC have sent my P80 t boosts ...

In résumé with the addition of four buttons at the bottom, it was twelve ACCS paramtres for this small interface at the same time, with a great flexibility of the rponse contrlleurs rotary. In addition to control of classical MIDI CC, you can use it as tlcommande MMC to start playing in a squenceur example ... The compatibility is extensive trs ...

The product is truly unique, totally affordable, versatile, the report qualitprix irrprochable. The only thing is the grip seemed quite difficult to notice because of the dpart not trs Designed well, but when we took the stuff, then drove alone ...
Also, a USB connection t really have to make the product even easier to use for a portable solution with a laptop (and yes, the BCN44 ask to have a portable USB Midi interface in order to be used it's a shame, but for the price you can not ask too much when even)
Another thing, it is possible to cascade up 16 BCN44!

I really regret not my purchase (the price the same when the risk is minimal), and its price leads me to the maximum ...

- The price super affordable compared qualitprix truly exceptional
- Construction and esthtisme
- The great compatibility and FLEXIBILITY of bte
- Learn very practical function
- Function Merge
- Possibility to set up 16 BCN44 cascade
- Product quasi-unique
- Possibility of battery operation

The -
- Instructions not clear trs
- No USB connection, which limits the relevance of the BCN44 for use with a laptop

Behringer B-Control Nano BCN44
I use it for 2 weeks.
it's beautiful, it's pretty solid, it is self-contained with batteries ... but it is very complicated to program ... Finally, after a few hours, I managed to do some stuff on cubase and once programmed it is great. I used to control Cubase: plugin, control of the cursor (forward, back, stop rec etc. ..) and mixing of voices!
what happiness to be able to fix everything on the real knobs. soon I will be using it to control some parameters of my MIDI keyboard. well, it's flexible to use even if there are only 4 knobs and a handful of button, but for 40 € in a store in Nantes, I'm rather satisfied! I recall that it's a bit hot to be programmed to start and to look for a long time because the documentation is poorly made but indispensable.
very good quality / price ratio. no equivalent in other brands. we can really do a lot of things, so we work on computer.

Behringer B-Control Nano BCN44
Yeah ... I had this morning.

For now I mumuse with Live 5 and have a blast, now I must dive into the manual, I'm not a pro MIDI unfortunately.

The characteristic I like most ... Uh ... Pfff I repost an opinion. Anyway, for now it augurs very good electro trips!

EDIT April 3, 2006:

Rhaaa I bought it because I had really no gold coins! After a few transports, bam, a broken knob. Must be said that forty euros ... It's lunchtime and that the poor feel, build quality to shit.

Excellent value for money, for sure

In May: CME Bitstream 3X. YEAH (that means: I do not ever do it again this choice)
