Hardware Enhancement for Your Digital Workflow
Bridging the gap of the analog/digital divide, the BCF2000 gives you command over your virtual gear in programs like Cubase, Cakewalk, Logic Audio, Ableton, and a multitude of other major audio software apps. While software-based music creation has done much to eliminate the bulky inconvenience of hardware rigs, it has left a void in the realm of tactile, real-time control. It is this void that the BCF2000 fills with style.
All Hands on Deck
The BCF2000 is an innovative, hands-on control surface with ultra-precise 100-mm motorized faders for the ultimate control of virtual mixers, organ-drawbars, synths and samplers. You can make coordinated simultaneous fades that can't be performed with a mouse--and the faders are motorized for automated control!
The BCF2000 is USB compatible and provides full MIDI In/Out/Thru capability. The eight endless rotary encoders, each with a 15-element LED indicator, have a special push-to-set function that allows you to select, adjust 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. It's like having the real knobs and faders for every control on the screen.
Get Hooked Up
Simply connect your BCF2000 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 reaching for your mouse and more time enjoying music creation!
