Hi, I recently purchased a BCR2000 from a pawnshop. It was only 30 euro's and I wanted to try use it with Cakewalk. A friend of mine recently gave me a few of his synths to try out, and in that time I got one of my own. That BCR2000 looked like it could be perfect for the job, and despite being familiar with Behringer products I bought it, especially because it mentioned Sonar in the documentation I found online. Back home, I continued searching, found AJ's thread on the Cakewalk forum, which ultimately lead me here. The BCR had been sitting on my desk for a month, and I finally felt confident enough to try and get it to work.
I've been knee deep in manuals for weeks now, and have little to no knowledge about midi. Actually I have no idea what I'm doing, this is all new to me. I need a manual just to understand the manual, sort of speak. So yesterday I wanted to install AJ's plugin (there's still a download available in yet another different thread on the old forums) but to be sure I knew what I was doing I first installed the official firmware, to see if that worked. Low and behold, it did. I continue searching and reading further, and when I returned to my desk the BCR was out. No lights on the knobs, no response when turning them, nothing, except for the controls of the BCR itself. I can change the mode and pick a channel, or choose a preset, assign a control, maybe store it, I can't tell, but the entire control section seems dead. It doesn't show up in BC Manager anymore, or Windows.
Can it still be fixed somehow or did I screw it up? I had it in U3 hooked up to my pc, and left BC Manager as well as MidiOX running the whole time too. All I did was successfully install the firmware and back up the modified data which I then sent back to the BCR. At least, that's what I know I did, I don't know what else I might have done wrong in the process, and no one's here to stop me when I'm about to make a mistake.
Lastly, I can't believe how much work and dedication has gone into this. It's truly remarkable someone took it upon them to do this. I mean, might as well get better gear and move on but this website restored some of my faith in humanity. Not in Uli Behringer though.
I hope someone can help me, or can guess what might have happened and tell me if it's still worth the trouble of trying to fix it.
