Well made and very cool MIDI controller!

Summary: I bought the Behringer BCR2000 to control the Korg iMS-20 analog synth program on my iPad. Let me say, that it works beautifully! I am so pleased with my purchase of the BCR2000! It was very easy to set up all the controls of the iMS-20 and the BCR2000 works flawlessly and delivers as promised.
Summary: I use this with Ambiloop (get it! it's free and it's awesome!) to control basic volume, pan, FX enable, FX send for all eight tracks, and I've recently changed from Energy-XT to Reaper for my DAW needs. I use a little NanoKontrol for Reaper's volume and pan, record-enable, etc and the BCR2000 for Bass, Mid, Treble, Mute, Solo, that kind of thing for eight tracks. The EQ is in a VST plugin so I can confirm that the unit can control VST parameters easily.
Summary: I'm very happy with this device, it is highly programmable without any special software. It took about 5 minutes out-of-the-box for me to plug it into two different table top synths and start controlling hidden parameters on their sound, it really is easy if you're willing to read two manuals side-by-side to set it up. And usually one of the presets layouts is good enough for a starting point.
Summary: This is a great tool,but if you're using a Vista-based machine, you're out of luck - it's pretty much a doorstop. Behringer has no Vista driver and the drivers for it's other products are trickling out slowly.
Summary: I use the BCR2000 with Ableton Live 7 and Reason 4. Because I can draw automations in Reason, I find the BCR most useful with Live. I use the encoder buttons to turn effects on and off in my A/B returns and the top row of 8 knobs/buttons is programmable to 4 groups so its actually 32! I use those to control my effect parameters and my crossfader.

Summary: The BCR2000 is a digital controller interface which can control a very high number of paramters within audio software. The device can be connected through either usb (my prefered method) or via midi cables. Once installation and drivers have been correctly applied to your computer the device is pretty much ready to go!
Pros: Can control almost any parameter within audio software
Cons: Can be occasionly fidly to install in regards to drivers
