Help please— BCR2000 Not receiving parameter values on LCD despite Transmit being selected

Hi there,
I am fairly new to midi controllers. I am on a mac, running Nuendo 10

I can control each parameter, however I never receive the correct parameter level on the LCD screen. I only see 0-127. I have setup a Generic Controller, chose BCR2000 as the midi input and output, and checked both R, and T.

I am connected via USB, and am operating the BCR2000 under USB-1 mode. I am also under firmware 1.10, and have reloaded the firmware.
Is there anything else I should be doing on the BCR for this to work? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Are you certain that the BCR2000 is specified to display received parameters in that LED Display? I think it’s just the encoder rings that do so. Edit – but I’m not positive it’s been a long time since I had one



From the BCR Manual

Oh wow. If that is true I have misunderstood the capability of this machine. Can anyone using one confirm? That’s disappointing for plug-in control.

Thank you Steve!

Don’t lose hope – it’s an amazing device, and I might be wrong.

I have the BCF2000 on PC with n10.3.
There is a blue window software for PC BCF View that simulates the Mackie MCU display window that reports the correct software values. Whether this is available for mac I dont know.
This may not apply to you for the BCR 2000 controlling vsti’s but this is my setup for the BCF 2000 that you may be farmilier with bit here it is anyhow.

With the BCF for normal fader controller I have it in Mackie MCU mode. Modes are changed by holding down the F 1 - F5 for the 5 modes while powering the unit on. I use F2 the display shows NNC in the display on the top right and the when EG is displayed press exit. In this mode it is set for normal Mackie Machine control in devices in Nuendo. The device display then shows the bank and page number rather than encoder value. It took me a while to work out which buttons on the right did what, on a normal MCU controller everything is properly labels.
The modes banks and pages perimeters and values are displayed on the floating BCF View window on my PC. I can then edit the order of the parameters the encoder labels buttons etc in the plugin controller editor so the banks of the knobs makes sense to the plugin UI.

I don’t know how much sense this will make without BCF View and with the encoders instead of faders.
Hope you come right
