BCN44

BCN44

The Behringer BCN44 was a relatively simple, light-weight MIDI controller.
It came on the market in 2005(?) as a spin-off of the bigger, heavier and much more powerful BCR2000.
However, unlike the BCR2000 the BCN44 never became very successful.
Consequently, Behringer didn't manufacture the BCN44 for very long: around 2008 it started becoming unavailable on certain continents, and perhaps a year later its official web page started stating that it had been 'discontinued' altogether.
And finally, around 2015 even its official web page disappeared...

BCN44 Manager is an editor for the BCN44.
Its first version was written in 2009 at the request of a few enthusiastic BCN44 users.
At that time the BCN44 had already been discontinued in Europe, so one of these enthusiasts kindly donated one of his own BCN44s to facilitate the development of BCN44 Manager.
Another user assisted in the analysis of the BCN44's data structures.
So BCN44 Manager was very much the product of a community effort, which yours truly has fond memories of.

Note: BCN44 Manager 1.4.0 Alpha 1 only comes with a "stub" manual. Hopefully in the not too distant future this will be upgraded to a "real" manual. Until then, for in-depth information on many of BCN44 Manager's features you can consult the manual for BC Manager, which can be downloaded separately from the BC Manager page at this site.

BCN44 Manager 1.4.0 Alpha 1 for Windows - Installer

Main new features of this version:

  • The installer automatically installs the edition of BCN44 Manager matching the operating system: the 32-bit edition on 32-bit Windows, the 64-bit edition on 64-bit Windows. (Previously there was only a 32-bit edition, which was installed on 32- and 64-bit Windows alike.)
  • The BCN44 Manager update mechanism allows you to specify in which update types you are interested: alpha (development) versions, (‘public’) beta versions, release candidates and release versions.

Note that the included manual is still a stub. The release version 1.4.0 will include a "real" manual.
