Behringer BCF as 'master' midi controller ?

Would the BCF work well as a 'master' midi controller for live use?

Essentially the setup could be something like this :

Laptop ( running reason ) +usb+ BCF 2000 ( midi out ) to a few pieces of hardware ( midi in ).

The idea is to use the loop function in Reason and to be able to control those predetermined aspects of a track ( drum tracks ) with the BCF whilst ALSO sending MIDI out data ( timecode+tempo only ) to the hardware synths. I might also want to send the tempo/timecode out to the hardware as well via the BCF MIDI OUT.

I am just wondering how exactly or IF that would even work as the BCF would be connected to the laptop via USB. Would the bcf's MIDI outs still function & transmit properly?

Yeah.

The bcf and bcr can transmit any Control Change value via any of it's controls. These are all tweakable with behringer's utility as well as the better 3rd party free one from Mountain Utilities.

It's controls will respond to the controlled device if the controlled device supports parameter feedback as well.

All over USB or "Midi" Midi

Thanks for that, but can you clarify. 'OR' or 'AND' ? Can you use both simultaniously?
