Behringer launched of USB/MIDI controller desks that offer intuitive operation with an analog feel. The B-Control Rotary BCR2000, a total recall USB/MIDI controller desk with 32 illuminated rotary encoders, and the B-Control Fader BCF2000 (pictured), a total-recall USB/MIDI controller desk with eight motorized faders, are expected to ship in the second quarter of 2004.

The BCR2000 and BCF2000 are total-recall, cascadable desktop MIDI controllers with an analog feel and an intuitive user interface. The BCR2000 boasts 24 high-resolution encoders with LED rings for control over virtual mixers, synths, samplers and effects processors. The BCF2000 features eight ultraprecise, 100mm motorized faders for control of virtual mixers, organ-drawbars (Inverse mode), or virtual synths and samplers. Both B-controllers are equipped with four virtual groups with eight dual-mode, high-resolution encoders that feature LED rings and an additional Push function with illuminated buttons that are easily assignable to all types of MIDI functions, from note-on/off, control change and program change to MMC and system exclusive data. An additional multifunction foot switch and foot controller connectors can be used to address all types of MIDI data, and configurable MIDI and USB modes allow for ultraflexible system integration.

The BCR2000 and BCF2000 also come equipped with features such as 32 user presets with four encoder groups, a multifunction 4-digit LED display with real-time parameter indication, and MIDI input with Merge function for cascading several control units. The MIDI In/Out connectors allow easy connection to any computer/expander. Both B-Controls are outfitted with one MIDI In and two MIDI Outs and generic USB MIDI support with Windows XP and Mac OS X. Additional drivers and an editor/librarian software will soon be available for free download online.
