B-Control BCF2000 or UC33

I need a midi controller for Live and Reason (not a keyboard, I have Oxygen8), with faders. Should I get a BCF2000 or UC33?

I know that the faders on the BCF2000 are motorized. When you move a control in Live that is connected to a fader on the BCF2000 does the BCF fader move too?

Thanks for the help!

Mike,

Do you use the B-control? Would you reccomend it?

Thanks

Behringer'S BCG is it !

I LOOOVE my new BCF with Live! Total recall? yes! Completely programmable ? Yes! 14bit controller signal resolution option ? Yes!

It's not just the motorized faders (yeah, watch them move with your envelopes!) , the LED-rosary around the rotary encoders (vulgo: knobs) is smashing: it doesn't merely indicate 0 to 127 increase (14bit: 0 to 16000+ resolution), there' also the pan-display, where the LED-dots spread from center-position (or reverse, if you prefer) and the dot-by-dot indicator, and more display ways I haven't even treid out.

Still in the pipeline: editor-programm to control/programme the B-Control from your PC.

List-price around 225 Euro in Germany - I snatched a new one at Ebay for 150...

BCF2000 is the do-gooder for everyone. No surprise the re-selling price for Doepfer Pocket Dials are sliding...

I forward Maotar'S hint to the unofficial BF-controllers user-forum: http://www.bcontrol.tk/

(though I wonder if there's much to discuss about these straight pieces of hardware)

hmmm

it didnt work before, stuttering faders, how come it works now??? A change in 4.0.3? (or is someone not quite up-to-date with their own equip.?)

Behringer brought out an updated firmware which solves the fader problem.
