Behringer Updates The B-Control DeeJay BCD3000
Behringer has updated their cluttered B-Control DeeJay BCD3000 DJ controller. The B-Control DeeJay BCD3000 lets you play, mix and scratch digital files if your fingers are the size of GI Joe. The new BCD3000 contains a mixer, dual-player, effects, mic/phono preamps and a full-fledged monitor section, this 4-channel USB audio interface works well with the included Native Instruments Traktor 3 LE DJ software or most other DJ software, running on Windows XP and Mac OS X operating systems.
We thought that the BCD2000 was one of the worst DJ controllers on the market. Its cheap, small and cluttered interface was in no way conducive to making great, fluid mixes. The only reason that Behringer came out with a 3000 is because the major players have all introduced new models at NAMM. But fans of Behringer should not worry, they’ll clone the Xponent, FinalScratch OPEN/NI Audio 8 DJ, etc. for you next year.

In Behringer’s actual marketing words:
“You’ve waited long enough. Go to your local dealer, and make sure this hot babe is yours.”
(Uggh! I think a little bit of throw-up just came up into my throat. –Ed.)
The best thing about the B-Control DeeJay is of course the price, it will retail at $299.99. More information on the Behringer B-Control DeeJay BCD3000.
