Has anyone compared the Behringer BCF2000 to the UC-33e?

In my opinion - the behringer is a much nicer controller all round, I've used both, I didn't like the UC-33e at all I'm afraid.

i read one realy bad review once about some overheathing and the knobs were crapy...but still so popular.

i want to get the bitstream but what is holding me is that i hear great things about it but the 33 e seams to be the favorite for live PA. why? maybe couse it is lighter?


because its cheaper, most of the live pa(s) at the time, probably had never heard of the bitstream.


And i wouldnt say its a favorite, its just along the lines of, people really don't know what they want/ or what to get so they just get what someone else has...

I think the UC-33 is just somewhat disposable. You're not really going to cry too much if someone spills a beer on it at a party.

try to reset the device... press - and + at the same time when you power up the uc33.
