      I have been recording in a home studio setting for many years now and my setups have gone though many changes and upgrades from entry level gear to true professional gear. I use this on a PC running Cakewalk Sonar Producer and it works just fine. There are other control surfaces out there but if you want this many features from other companies you will spend so much more. The unit looks pretty nice as far as design and functions as it should. The only real complaint I have is that the fader knobs feel like cheap plastic. They look a lot better than they feel. It still gets the work done so I guess they had to skimp somehow to get the price down that low. This is one of the few times I would recommend a Behringer product.

      The BCF2000 has great potential, but why in heaven's name Behringer didn't include a transport panel is mindboggling. To record, one must press two buttons at once, and these buttons are located at the very top and bottom of the unit respectively! If you have small hands, it is a two handed operation! Who came up with this design? There is no jog-wheel, and no master fader. How much would these items add to the price? Probably no more than $25.00 or so. I would gladly have paid another $100.00+ to have these things included. Given that the closest competitor sells for $1,0000+ it would still be a ridiculous bargain (allbeit a much more useful one!), this kind of corner-cutting is self-defeating. I can live whithout a master fader and a jog-whel, but the absence of a reasonable transport panel spoils the whole thing for me. It gets three stars, since you can't get the motorized faders for anywhere near the price, but it would, could, should have been a 5+

          Comments about Behringer B-CONTROL FADER BCF2000 - USB/MIDI Controller Desk - (Black):

          I wasted 3 days trying to make the BCF200 work with my system. Tech support was not only useless but following their advice made my DAW out of service for half a day. I could not get any work done and spent 4 hours trying to fix it. Not to mention the unit is cheaply made and noisy. The manufacturer site says it support MAC yet the last OS supported by the editor is 10.6, which is like 4 years old!Also Behringer customer service is non existent. My overall experience with this product and dealing with that company on every level has been beyond bad. It was my first time buying a Behringer product and my last time. Stay of away from their products you've been warned! Needless to say, I returned the darn thing. Also with B&H you have to pay for shipping when returning an item. I wasted $ and 3 days of my time, not a happy camper! In retrospect I would have been better off to keep the useless thing and sell it to someone who doesn't know better.

          I was able to get this control surface working with Vegas Pro 11, win7/64. I just did not like the feel of the faders, so I returned it. Other people may have a different oponion, but I was used to some very nice analog boards and was expecting the faders to have the same feel, for [$], I guess not. I'll have to keep looking or shell out [$] for a Mackie.

          The BCF2000 worked right out of the box. Connection and installation was simple and Nuendo (my DAW) recognized the interface right away (with the BCF set to MCU mode).Having 8 motorized faders for $ bucks or so is really great. There is also many customizable buttons that make mixing really easy and comfortable.PROS-the price-8 faders and customizable buttons-connectivity-ease of useCONS-No transport control, no master fader.-Faders do make some noise, but not that much. But still, it is not so silent. (at the price, do not complain).I highly recommend this product to anyone who want to mix with faders and pots instead of a mouse and don't have 1000$ to spend on a controller.

              I use this machine as an interface for puredata (pd)--- it has fulfilled all of my hopes and then some. The motorized faders and endless preset channels are extremely simple to use and unbelievably useful. The ability to set min/max values, midi control number/channel, and behavior for every button/knob on the machine makes this incredibly versatile and infinitely customizable.

              The only downside so far (though it hasn't been a problem) is that the faders themselves feel a little on the flimsy side; I haven't traveled much with this yet, but I am suspicious how these will hold up after extensive use. In contrast, the body of the machine itself is quite solid, heavy, and sturdy.

              All in all, just buy this--- the uses are endless.

                Solid build. Sturdy feel considering its price point. I had to open up the unit to tighten up the fader motors, as the loose pulleys controlling the faders caused jerky fader movements. Apparently it's a luck of the draw, some units are smooth while others require this easy fix which required a screwdriver and half an hour. Works great with my DAW (Reason 6). I would consider purchasing a second unit. Subtracted 1 star for having to fix a brand new product.

                  This product works quite well with my DAW of choice, and it feels as though I'm just scratching the surface with all of its tools. It's very solid, performance-wise, and structurally; it's sitting next to my Korg padKONTROL and I can't believe they both cost me [$] dollars. The Korg seems like a cheap piece of electronics in comparison.The motorized faders ARE loud, as noted in the reviews I read beforehand, but I'm usually knee deep in a set of cans when I'm using them, and the only times they cause major noise issues is switching between "presets", or your large groups of channels (i.e. 1-8, 9-16, etc.) Expect other people in the room to find them more bothersome than you do.Overall a very, very good investment for anyone serious about mixing with a strapped budget.

                      Pretty versatile & very useful, but the editing software may be a hassle for some users. It will not work unless you have an extremely old version of Java installed, which is obviously a security threat. I use Windows 7 64-bit, so I have to uninstall the current version of Java, install the old version, use the program and when I'm finished with it, re-install the current version again - EVERY TIME I want to use the editing software. It works, but it's a bit ridiculous. They REALLY need to update it.

                        I use the BCF2000 for a 'tactile' control surface when I do location multitrack recording. This allows me to 'bank' back-and-forth between my input tracks and allows me to get a very quick 2-channel rough mix from my DAW. It's small, lightweight and seems to be very well built. The built-in power supply is a nice addition, which keeps another 'wall wart" or 'brick' out of my cable bag. As many users online have said, it would be nice if the surface was touch-sensitive, but for this price, I won't complain - it fits my needs and budget PERFECTLY.

                          THe B-control by Behringer is a great piece for many applications. I am using it as a sub-fader control for various computer based DMX lighting software. I use it as a sub panel to play scenes specifically. I know there will be many MIDI applications I can use it for as well. As a beginner the B-control by Behringer was easy to connect with 3 versions of Lighting software. AMDJ My DMX, Horizon software and Grand MA software.

                          Recommend this product to everyone, very easy to install. i am using the controller with protools 8 using mackie hui protocol. All buttons and faders/rotary encoders work with protools. makes mixing easy and fun. thinking about buying another one to be able to control 16 channels at ones. defenitely a good investment. If your on a tight budget best controll surface with motorized faders.

                          I bought two of these to use in our edit suites. One developed a problem after one day of use. [...] You can tell Behringer manufactured this model on a budget and used lesser great components. Hence the low price. I would still recommend this as it has great features with the USB interface with Final Cut Pro and Motion. It's pretty cool! But I did expect more from Behringer.

                          I use the controller for automation edits mostly, were its better to ride a fader instead of poking around with a mouse.Setup was easy enough, there were some videos on the internet that made setting the unit up fairly painless. I have nothing negative to say about the unit, its not as robust in construction as its competitors, but its also no where near as expensive either. It would be nice to have LED readouts for channel information and device setup, but once again for the price I have no complaints.

                          I am using the BCF2000 as a contro surface with Reaper(DAW). Once you are set up properly everything works great. Faders are not too loud that they disturb mixing, but I would turn off the BCF when tracking/recording or at least turn off track automation. For the midi non-expert the setup is a bit challenging, but there is a lot of info out there in forums to help you. If you run into setup issues, keep trying - you will get it.

                            It works seamlessly with logic and protools. Ive had no bad experience with iy. I heard that tgey were very noisy but it doesnt effect the wirk flow and its not that bad. Unless your usig automation for the faders you inly hear tgem moving when you recall another session. Its great and the price cant be beat

                                  This is about the only thing i could find that does what it does and it does it well. A control surface with 8 motorized faders is hard to come by, and this one is awesome. The faders can be noisy, but they work well and if your volume is up you don't notice the noise. Compatible with whatever program you use.

                                  I couldn't find a similar product at this low price. Very good motorised faders. And the knobs have led indicators that reflect the value in your software or vst. I used it with FLstudio's mixer on mackie emulation mode and it works like a breez. The only thing I would that dislike, is that on mackie's emulation mode, there is no feedback on the led screen, but Behringer makes this a little easy by providing a BCFview software that would give you some feedback. Any how if your DAW supports it, you just can plug and play without emulation mode.

                                  Overall, great product for the price. I'm loving it.

                                    This is a great control surface for your home studio project. Side by side with a regular mixer you'll have everything you need for recording and mastering.

                                    The best feature of this MIDI desk is that you can set it to emulate other mainstream control surfaces.

                                    All and all it's a perfect MIDI desk.
