An inexpensive MIDI controller with useful scratch and mixer controls, for DJing, live laptop performance, and VJing? We’ve all been anxious to know whether the BCD2000 delivers. Our resident live visualist gives it a spin. If you’ve used a Behringer MIDI controller such as a BCR before, then this will be very familiar. The plastic BCD knobs and sliders aren’t as silky smooth as higher-end offerings, but they are rather chunky, which is great for a live performance environment. As the BCD rotaries aren’t endless, Behringer haven’t included the excellent LED rings seen on the light-tastic BCR. Instead, they’ve opted for a more traditional bump and a normalling detent on those controllers that need to be zeroed, such as EQ and gain. The cross- and upfaders are smooth and move quite freely, not as quick as a real DJ mixer, but definitely faster than the BCD’s main rival in the price range, the M-audio X-session. |
