BC Manager

BC Manager is an advanced utility for working with Behringer's BCF2000 and BCR2000 MIDI Controllers.

Don't forget to check out the B-Control user file section, containing user-contributed presets etc. for the BCF2000 and BCR2000.

Before you download BC Manager, please consider the following:
Over the years, many thousands of people have downloaded BC Manager.
However, only about 135 of those have made a donation, totalling about US$2600.
So in consideration of the abt. 9000 hours it has taken me to develop BC Manager, my earnings currently (Oct. 2019) stand at about $0.29 per hour.

If this makes you feel a bit guilty, you are kindly invited to 'relieve yourself' by making a small donation via the Donate page at this website.
Thank you in advance!

BC Manager 4.1.0 Beta 2 for macOS

This is the first 64-bit version of BC Manager for macOS.
It should be compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and later, including macOS 10.15 (Catalina).

This version no longer uses the Carbon interface, but Cocoa.
Due to this transition, this version no longer suffers from any Carbon-related problems.
On the other hand, the application now suffers from several problems related to Cocoa:

  • Dialog boxes (such as "Check for update") that pop up during application startup prevent the other windows of the application from showing up correctly. As a temporary work-around, in this situation the application automatically restarts.
    (This Beta 2 version suppresses dialog boxes more rigorously during autorestart than the earlier Beta 1.)
  • Reportedly the Enter key doesn't always closes dialog boxes any more.
  • In the layout windows the "previous preset" and "next preset" buttons (to the right of the preset number) are no longer displayed side by side, but vertically, which causes them to be rather small.
  • In the layout windows drag-and-drop no longer works.

See section 2 of the manual for the full list of changes.

Please report any problems related to the transition to 64-bit Cocoa in the B-Control forum at this site.
(You may also want to keep an eye on the forums for the other applications that now come in 64-bit Cocoa versions: MIDI Tools, A-880 Manager and FCB1010 Manager.)

BC Manager for macOS

Beware: this version is 32-bit, so it doesn't run on macOS 10.15 (Catalina). Even on earlier versions of macOS you should now install the 64-bit version listed above.

This version fixes the update checker (which had stopped working when the Mountain Utilities webhost ended support for TLS 1.0), at least for operating systems supporting TLS 1.1/1.2, i.e. OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and later.
So on Mavericks or later, if you had disabled "Automatic check on program startup" in the "Check for update" dialog box, you can now re-enable it. And of course pressing the "Check now" button should work again too.
On OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and earlier (which lack TLS 1.1/1.2 support) the update checker still doesn't work, so it's best to switch "Automatic check on program startup" off, although leaving it on will no longer prevent the application from starting up.

BC Manager 4.0.2 Manual (update 1)

This is the manual for all editions of BC Manager 4.0.2.

Note: All the editions of BC Manager 4.0.2 listed below contain this manual too and will install it automatically, so you don't need to download it separately here, unless you wish to read it before running BC Manager or its installer. So if you're just updating from a previous version, you can safely skip downloading the manual separately: just download and install the update to BC Manager, and you'll be able to read the automatically installed manual anyway.

BC Manager 4.0.2 for Windows - Installer

This is the installer of BC Manager 4.0.2 for Windows.

Main new features:

  • The "next/previous preset" buttons in the layout windows work correctly again. (This bug was introduced in BC Manager 4.0.0 for Windows.)
  • Improvements to the "Send firmware" operation: a dialog box warns the user about the dangers of the operation, and the operation inserts a delay of 125 msec between consecutive SysEx messages, thereby hopefully eliminating the risk of buffer overflow in MIDI interfaces with small input buffers.
  • Some improvements to the manual.

See section 2 of the manual for the full list of changes.
