OVERVIEW

The intuitive way to control and create music.

The Behringer BCA2000 B-Control Audio is a high-speed USB 2.0 multichannel audio MIDI control interface that raises your performance to a whole new level. Not only does it provide an intuitive control surface with 3 - 100mm faders for audio/MIDI sequencing, it also features a high-performance analog input section that has 2 state-of-the-art studio-grade IMP "Invisible" Mic Preamps with +48V phantom power, plus line and Hi-Z guitar inputs. Combine this with its versatile digital input and output formats like ADAT, ADAT S/MUX, AES/EBU and S/PDIF (including Dolby Digital and dts options) and you have an unlimited array of interfacing capabilities.

You can simultaneously use 3 analog input sources (1 mono + 1 stereo) with digital input sources. Its ultra-flexible input/output configuration is supported by a comprehensive LED audio routing indicator plus button (status) LEDs. Input signal distortion and A/D converter overload are prevented by the adjustable studio-grade analog input dynamic control (noise gate + limiter).

The BCA2000's fully equipped USB/MIDI interface with one MIDI input and 2 MIDI outputs is individually selectable for 16/32 MIDI channels. Plus, full multichannel playback is enabled at 24-bit/96kHz. There is a high-resolution 2x12 element LED level indicator for stereo In/Out signals plus 2-element LED level indicator for input and output channels 3 through 8. The high-speed USB 2.0 interface with 24-bit/96kHz supports 8 In and 8 Out channels simultaneously (analog and digital) with low-latency ASIO 2 and WDM drivers.

Simply connect your B-CONTROL to your computer via high-speed USB 2.0. Then connect your keyboard, guitar, and mic. True audiophiles will surely appreciate the fully equipped master and monitor sections with 100mm fader, individual level controls for 2 speakers, 2 phones, and low-latency direct monitor function plus separate dim, mute, and mono functions.

First one I received had a bad main output fader. These guys set up the return shipping and got a replacement to me quickly. The second one is working great. A bit flimsily built, but great for the price.I haven't noticed any problems on my old Athlon-based desktop, but have seen some weird behavior on my Pentium notebook.Initially I had some trouble on the notebook with things playing back at half or double speed, and it was really twitchy about driver modes and buffer settings (ASIO worked best). Behringer responded promptly to my bug report, and has released a couple of driver updates in the last month that are moving things in the right direction. I hate being a beta tester for stuff like this, but that's the way the industry works.Amazing features for the price. It's working well enough on my desktop that I'm considering pulling my old Turtle Beach sound card and using the BCA2000 for everything. I don't do MIDI, so I can't comment on that. I'd love to have an ADAT box at some point, but presently can't report on that either. I can report that my M-Audio Duo's S/PDIF feeds into the BCA2000 and works fine.Overall, I'm impressed and pleased. I use it with Adobe Audition and Cakewalk, and it's working really well for recording song ideas, and mixing down the 48/24 studio tracks that we've done in the band.

Behringer has put a significant mar in their, in my opinion, excellent track record. Foolishly, they decided to release not one, not two, but three computer interfaces at the same time. This is especially remarkable as they don't have a great deal of experience in writing drivers, and it shows. On paper, this device is great, with more features that I can reasonably use at a very low cost. The actual functionality, however, is miserable. The drivers are not ready. Owners can only hope that the 2.0 drivers will fix their problems. I get choppy playback with only a few simultaneous tracks in my multitracker. None of their suggestions helped, however I trust Behringer enough to make sure that it's right in the end, but when this player is performing choppy with five or six 16/44.1 tracks and my internal sound on the motherboard performs with 70-80 without a problem, I'm left with a pricey piece of plastic in the meantime. I think this will be worthwhile, eventually, but don't buy it until they've fixed the driver issues.

Behringer BCA 2000

By Vibes

from Port Saint Lucie, FL

I bought this unit for mobile recording with my laptop. Nice looking unit. Just wish it would work. Has major driver problems. I could not interface with XP Pro. It locks up with Sonar.I was able to get a little audio out of it when using it as my windows default audio device.I am sending mine back.

Best in Class!

By MasterGee

from Brownsburg, IN

I almost didn't buy this because of the negative reviews that I read on this site and others. However, I decided to give it a try because, based on the description and features, it was exactly what I needed. I am VERY happy with my decision.Evidently, the old Windows XP driver had some problems, but I started out with the new 2.0 driver (released May 13, 2005). With the new driver, this is everything that the product description claims that it is. If you need a true USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed) audio interface with full multi-channel (up to 8) simultaneous playback and recording, get this one!! Plus it adds nice analog controls, and can even function as a standalone 2-channel mixer (undocumented, but I use it this way)!! It offers plenty of input and output flexibility - and expansion with an optional ADAT 8-channel AD/DA converter and mic preamp (Behringer ADA8000).I use this with Cakewalk Sonar 4 on a 2.4GHz Windows XP system with 512MB of RAM. It does everything that Behringer claims - and much more. Do yourself a favor and try it for yourself!

Great potential, but bad quality control

By Briney Eye

Received mine today, and it has a bad Main Output fader. Not an auspicious beginning for a new product.Once I get one that works I will probably have good things to say. I had no trouble setting it up in Windows XP, and everything else seems to work. The feature set is astounding for the price.

Inexpensive gear, or got what I payed for?

By gitboxman1134

from Longview, TX

I had to send my unit right back due to the leds on the in/out meter not working correctly, and only getting audio from the headphone outs. I tried to contact behringer through their website first, but they never responded back. I do like the potential the bca 2000 has and can't wait to get my replacement. I'm also considering purchasing the bcf 2000 in the near future. Maybe si, maybe no.

Sorry Behringer...

By Larz Hanson

See all my reviews

I bought one of the first of these, but unfortunately ended up sending it back. To their credit, Behringer produces some stellar gear for low prices, and this will eventually be one of the same. But I couldn't get it to work with my desktop or either of my laptops. Again to their credit, Behringer provided excellent support via email, but they were unable to solve the driver compatibility problems I had, even with an updated driver. The kick in the butt for Behringer is that I bought an M-Audio FireWire 410 and it works flawlessly with the same computers. I was up and running in less than 5 minutes. The BCA is a great design and has more features than anything in its price range, and I'm confident Behringer will work out the bugs soon... for someone else who buys it. I'm at least happy to see some buyers have had good results with it. That means Behringer is close...

Excellent Value in an Audio Interface

By 2old4This

from Floirida

Dollar for dollar you'll be hard pressed to match what you get in this Behringer BCA2000 package with any other device or combination of audio devices. I bought this as a backup unit for the second DAW in my studio. Installation was very easy using the new driver available here: http://www.behringer.com/05_support/bc_download/bc_downloads.cfm?lang=ENGNot quite plug and play but if you can read you'll have no problem getting the BCA2000 up and running. The BCA2000 takes the place of a mixer for most simple recording projects. The noise gate and limiter are nice bonuses - EQ is one of the few things that is missing that would be a nice addittion. Transparent pre-amps and phantom power make voice recording a breeze. Build is sturdy and the design - though a bit large(13"X11")is user friendly and the metering a cut above what you would expect. Don't let some of the negative reviews back you off. The driver problems have been fixed.

What a piece.

By Prenito

from Denmark

I use my gear to make soundtracks and effects to games and webpages, and for this reason I need both digital I/O, analog I/O and MIDI I/O.And the physical control you have over the I/O is nice when you already have seven windows open on the computer screen - in contrast to the small usb interfaces where all is software controlled.I've used the driver v. 2.1.0.6 from Behringers website and I have no problems with daily use nor the installation. I use it with a notebook: 2,8 Celeron and 2 GB ram and various software midi controllers, samplers and recording editors.It's light and easy to travel with.But I would have liked more resistance in the three volume sliders. They move very easy and I have my concerns in the long run.In general it's a bit "plastic", but to this price it's OK.What a piece!

Driver Issues

By ZMan40

from Montebello, NY

See all my reviews

Installation was a problem in XP due to the fact the Behringer driver does not work in a multi-processor system. Additionally, some high-end USB 2.0 PCI cards such as Adaptec will not run in XP in a multi-processor system with their native drivers. However, modifying boot.ini to use switches to limit the O/S to one processor yielded excellent results with very low latency and flawless digital transfers from a original black-faced ADAT. Additionally, on a 300MHz laptop with USB 1.1 more than satisfactory results were achieved. Al in all, real bang for the buck!
