BCF2000 weird things going on..

Hey, i just buy a bcf2000, when i set it up to a mackie mode in cubase, everything is ok, but when i am moving a fader, knob, or pressing a button, then the notes play like on a keyboard, or pitch is changing.. Someone know something about this ?. One more question, how i can assign a knob, or a fader, in my own way ? not the defalut setting..

PS: i am cubase 5 user.

Dear scrathh,

Thanks for your question and congratulations on your new BCF2000.

You are likely triggering the Microsoft Graintable synth in the Windows operating system. Depending on your version of Windows, you should be able to find the settings for the Microsoft Graintable Synth in the control panel, under sounds and audio devices then sounds. Select "no sounds" in the sound scheme menu. That should stop the synth from generating the sound from your MIDI messages the BCF2000 is sending.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Big thanks for you answer! You got, a big beer for help, but this dont solve the problem. I disabled the midi routing in cubase, and this solved the problem. But maybe you, or someone here know how i can set the mapping in my own way, and stop using the mackie mode.. For example i want to use Fader's to control volume, knob to control massive oscillator, and another to control a reverb for example.. are this is possible, or i can use only the mackie mode ?

Dear scrathh,

First, you will need to put the BCF2000 in the B Control emulation mode, as opposed to the Mackie to enable mapping.

Your next step will be setting up the mapping Cubase.

Emulation modes can be accessed by holding down the respective button on the top row of the BCF2000 while powering on. The available emulation modes for the BCF2000 are:
  • B-Control Mode
  • Mackie Control - Cubase & Nuendo
  • Logic Control
  • Mackie Control - SONAR
  • BabyHUI - Pro Tools

Different DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) usually have preset selections for each emulation mode in the software's preferences.

For custom MIDI mapping, B-Control is the ideal emulation mode. This is the mode utilized for designating your own MIDI message and assigning / creating custom templates with your software or MIDI device.

After the controller is in B Control mode and ready to map, you will set up Cubase.

I found this video on YouTube about setting up remote mapping for MIDI in Cubase 5. You may also want to consult the Steinberg website for a tutorial.

HI there, I too just got second hand bcf2000, but I noticed one strange thing, when i press Button nr4, in whichever mode, button also selects all other buttons(?). It happens with button 4 in top and bottom row. Sounds like somethings not right. Thanks

Keep in mind that since yours is a second-hand unit, it's possible that someone assigned the same command to various controls.

However, I covered some of what you are asking - to some degree at least - at the link shown below.

I have to say that the application-specific xml's have been extremely useful to me...

Hope this helps.
