I expected this to be just functional. But using it with Protools 11 It has done everything I have asked of it. Great interface.

Knobs galore!

I have very much disliked turning virtual knobs with a mouse (or any other pointing device). The encoder laden Behringer BCR2000 fixes this nicely. I'm mostly using it with Cubase, which has a lot of features for remote control. I've also found it handy for controlling my iPad synths as well. That the BCR2000 also functions as a USB MIDI interface, makes this and other types of connections quite convenient! The units rotary encoders feel solid and smooth. In particular, the "push" encoders pack a nice one-two punch that really speeds up and eases productivity. For example; raising the gain on EQ bands, while also being able to turn these bands on and off from the same control, or activating/deactivating sends and changing send levels from the same control is far quicker and more efficient than doing these tasks with a mouse. With these 8 push encoders assignable to four banks, along with 16 additional encoders, 20 buttons and two foot switches sending any type of MIDI data, and stored into 32 presets makes for a large number of possible assignments and uses. Despite a rather cryptic display, this unit is a breeze to program. LEDs are plentiful and if your DAW or device supports it, they will sync to your project. There are several display modes available for the push encoders to accommodate differing functions, and the transmitted value also shows in the main display. This is excellent visual feedback. With all these possibilities, labeling can be a issue. The BCR2000 offers plenty of scribble-strip real estate, as well as photos and templates which can be used for building a label library. All in all, this unit offers outstanding value!

BCR2000 with Studio One

I'm using this (along with 2 BCF2000's) with Presonus Studio One. Both as a live console and as a recording/mixing console. I can pull up any plugin and assign up to 16 encoders plus 4 buttons and 2 footswitch buttons as well. For exapmle using the Pro EQ or compressor or gate or whatever. I have acces to all the parameers and never need to use my mouse. The top row allows me to customize the LED to represent a pan or cut or bar or simply just a dot. If I push the top encoder it acceses another button which I can use to "zero out" a parameter like going flat on any of my EQ bands. By simply setting a 64 value on the high and low parameters. Or using the buttons to engage a HPF or LPF. Studio One makes it real easy to assign control. Open your PlugIn and right click on any parameter you want to control and see a dropdown menu option to "assign to BCR2000 knob- (whatever knob or button you just moved)" I looked seriously at the Console 1 but for my budget this was a great buy.

4.5/5

Wish I had known about this sooner.

This is hands down the most useful piece of gear in my studio not to mention the cheapest. I use it in conjunction with another surface just to control plugin and soft synth parameters and my workflow has sped up a lot. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that I haven't had it long enough to see if it holds up.
