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 announced 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.

BCN44 Manager 1.5.0 for Windows - Installer

Main new features of this version:

  • A manual.
  • The installer allows you to deselect non-essential files: the manual and the skin definitions.
  • The application runs slightly faster due to the disabling of some debugging safeguards.
  • Skins: 39 alternative user interfaces, mainly color schemes.
  • Full support for Windows 10's "Per Monitor v2" DPI awareness protocol: at high DPI settings all text characters look razor-sharp instead of blurry, and the resolution of each window automatically adapts to the monitor on which it is (mainly) being shown.
  • Some layout and scaling problems have been fixed.

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