Welcome!
a website to share my efforts with music software


Recently this web site changed from beging exclusivly concerned with connecting Behringer's controllers to hardware synths.

Now it has many of my patch conversions and some of my music software on it as well.

I hope it is usefull....

Berhringer BCR2000 and BCF2000
This varies from patches for hardware synths to programs that turn pages of a displayed pdf file with Midi.

I have been asked many times about getting the BCR2000 to link closely with a synthesiser to, essentially, imitate the modular or early synths that had controls a plenty, but lacked memory to store the patch.
Once memory was available it was cheaper to make a synth that you program at home and recall the presets during performance. This meant that most of the knobs and cables could be replaced with just one or two knobs and a few switches. The other advantage was that the synth makers could deliver their instrument already filled with professionally designed presets that would make a noise as soon as you turned on the unit

Like in so many things, gaining one thing meant the loss of another. It this case you could not longer adjust the sound anywhere near as much live as you could before.

So in steps the Midi controller, the BCR2000.
The BCR2000 can output just about any Midi message. You are also able to provide 'feedback' via Midi messages to reset the values of the controls. This sounds perfect except that the Midi messages needed to control the synth are called System Exclusive (sysex) messages and the messages needed for feedback to the BCR are Continuous Controller (CC) messages.

So a computer needs to be put in between the synth and the BCR.

As each of the synths are so different and sysex is defined to allow the synth manufacturer to have any message it wants, new PC software as well as a new BCR patch has to be built for each model.
