Behringer BCR-2000

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

I got the BCR-2000 in September 21st of 2007--It's one of the most versatile MIDI controllers of its time and stands up well to the competition, even now.  I designed the colorful layout you see above to control Native Instruments Traktor, but I have used it to control my DAWs, VSTs, and even vintage hardware samplers.

Others have used the BCR to control vintage gear such as the Roland JX-8P and JX-10, eliminating the need for an expensive (and rare) PG-800 programmer.

If you're still trying to decide whether the BCR-2000 is worth a look, here's a picture of Daft Punk's famous pyramid serving as proof that this controller is no joke.

Notice the two BCR-2000's as the center of Daft Punk's setup

As is the case with many more flexible and customizable pieces of technology the best way to configure the BCR is by using tools that users develop themselves and not those provided by Behringer.  You should have a look at BC Manager, a preset manager developed by by Mark van den Berg who also wrote a PhD thesis on Aspects of a Formal Theory of Music Cognition.

Great stuff on translating workflow into stickers. I'm also looking to use the BCR2000 as main and only controller for mixing tracks. Would you mind to share the preset files for Traktor please? Thanks B
