You won't know what you've been missing until you use the Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader. Tired of using a mouse? Want to control your synth, mixer, effects, or signal processor with real controls? With the BCF2000, you move real faders to control all the virtual gear in Cubase, Cakewalk, Logic, and other major audio software.

The BCF2000 is an innovative, hands-on control surface with 8 ultraprecise, 100mm motorized faders for the ultimate control of virtual mixers, organ-drawbars, synths, and samplers. You can make group moves that you can't make with a mouse--and the faders are motorized for automated control!

The BCF2000 is USB compatible, features full MIDI In/Out/Thru capability, and includes 8 endless rotary encoders, each with a 15-element LED indicator plus a push-to-set function, that lets you select, adjust, set, and control a myriad of functions. Assign a dedicated knob, fader, or key to your most frequently used functions and make edits without touching the mouse. Tweak "front-panel" settings by simply turning a knob or sliding a fader. You get real knobs and faders for every control on the screen!

Best of all, discover just how awesome MIDI can be! Simply connect your B-CONTROL to your computer via USB. Then assign and control MIDI/audio sequencers, software mixers, or virtual synths/plug-ins with real knobs and faders--without using your mouse! You'll spend less time clicking around and more time enjoying your music!

Everything good, nothing bad. For the price I paid I'd need to look long and hard to find a fault, and then it would be some nitpicky thing. If you're in the market for a midi controller that will stay quietly in the background, then do exactly what you want it to do when you need it done this is the one for you.
This has quickly integrated into my 'workflow' --- and I HATE that word --- so much that I can't remember what my composing was like before it! It's easy to use, intelligently motorized and makes what used to be chores downright enjoyable. Also, the 100mm faders make my mixes and fades more precise.
Ever seen one on Craigslist? That's the standard I use for a reliable product...
Motorized faders, smart midi implementation, good (plastic) build quality --- what's not to like? And this has been around in the same form for a LONG time!

Pros: It does what it says it does. It still works after 4 years.Cons: It's some trouble setting up the drivers. The motors are pretty loud, so you might not be able to track acoustic instruments or singing in the same room as this. The faders are not touch sensitive, so if you ever want to rewrite or tweak automation, you have to start from scratch, or do it with your mouse. MAJOR drag, and makes it so I barely ever use it.I'd recommend saving up a little more for something touch sensitive.

    Comments about Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader:

    This is great for the price. I've been using it with Sonar for over 10 years as a bus mixer and sometimes tracks 25-32.
    Setup with your software may be tricky and there can be a learning curve learning with which combinations of buttons to press to get to a mode or function. A master fader would be nice as well as a balance rotary knob on each channel.
    Once it's setup it's reliable and pretty durable. They used to be cheaper like 199us but at 299us you might be able to get something used that's more specific to your software. It's still a good deal if you need motorized faders on the cheap.

    Comments about Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader:

    It's brand new so I can't speak to the durability but I can say, for the price, this thing is perfect for me. There is NO AUDIO OUTPUT. If you need something with output for monitors, look elsewhere. This is just a mixing desk. I would like to see a version with audio and sound card features. This is perfect for me though. I already have my monitors hooked up to the computer so I didn't need audio capability.

    I've been struggling to get my Digi 003 to work with Pro Tools and in frustration, ordered this unit as a substitute and backup. I plugged it in, Windows (don't judge me) automatically downloaded the drivers and everything was good to go. A youtube tutorial showed me how to open it in Baby Hui mode (hold the 5th function key when powering on) and protools recognized it instantly. Compared to the hours of frustration with my old hardware, this was a total breeze.

    My only gripe thus far is that the faders are pretty noisy. All motorized faders at the amateur studio level are going to make some noise so I'm not being silly about it, but it is a bit annoying. It would be great if there was a space for board tape so you could mark your faders and function keys. Better if there were programmable led/lcd displays but that's asking a lot.

    I'm definitely happy so far.

      Comments about Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader:

      The BCF is a very nice, inexpensive control interface for my home studio. I have been using it with Logic Express on my iMac for a few weeks now and it works perfectly.

      There are some excellent tutorials on working with this device on YouTube. Definitely watch those, as the manual from Behringer is useless.

      However, usin those tutorials, this device is an obvious must-have for any serious home studio.

      Pro Tools Friendly

      By BABY T

      from Michigan

      Comments about Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader:

      I just purchased this product and I honestly love it! I read all the pros and cons from what people had 2 say, but owning is to different stories.Pros: The set-up was fairly easy after downloading the proper drives, I was up and running in pro tools under 6mins. Now when using the product I noticed the 8 tracks that were active and being used were highlighted on the pro tools screen which helped alot when knowing what tracks are what. It also controls every single aspect on pro tools, from the record aim, playback, rewind, fast forward and even control the 'active plugins' on the session from one single click or two.Cons: No LED screens on the board and the motorized faders are little nosey when clicking into place, but not un-barable from what I have heard others say.Overall: This product is very nice! I will eventually buy one more so easier mixing but for now one will surely do the job and for the price you can't beat it! Nothing compares to mixing hands on and seeing your automation come to life.CheersBT

      Can't beat this one! Midi & Controls Pro Tools!!

      Comments about Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader:

      Believe it! It just took me 10 minutes to start mixing with this thing in PRO TOOLS LE 8.0! Yes you should download the latest firmware, updater, usb driver, and manual. Setup peripherals in PT & set this for Baby HUI emulation and just like that moving faders and transport control as well as pan, send, mute, solo, and arm.CONS: Motors are a little loud and I wish it had an LCD to display the track names.

      Crazy awesome.

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader:

      I normally hate Behringer products, but this thing is golden. It makes mixing so much easier to use a control surface, but if you want motorized faders, you really have to shell out a lot of cash to get that. But not with the BCF2000! This price is insane for what you get.. 8 motorized faders, 8 knobs, 16 buttons, and a load of assignable presets! The only thing that would make this better would be some kind of display for each track to show the name or something. Otherwise, this is quite great!

      Comments about Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader:

      I just bought my first Bcf2000(WH) and it works great with my Protools LE 8 and Reason 3.0. I think its a good unit for the price. I am looking to get 1 more added to my setup and the Bcr2000 for knobs and other stuff. For the price and the functions it worth it!!!

      Great Pro Tools Control Surface

      Comments about Behringer BCF2000 B-Control Fader:

      Easy choice: Play, Stop, FF, Rewind, 8 Pan pots, Mute, Solo, 8 Automated Faders, and Bank Select controls for my Pro Tools setup on a solid looking surface for not very much ... Works well with Mac OS Tiger or Leopard (download Sysex Librarian to upload Behringer's baby HUI sysex to the controller). VU meters would have warranted a 5/5 for 'Features'.
