ZAQ Audio has announced that the Zaquencer – custom firmware for the Behringer BCR2000 that turns it into a multi-channel step sequencer – is now available.
The Zaquencer is not a preset, but a new operating system for your BCR2000, effectively turning it into a whole different device. In a nutshell, it’s a brain transplant that transforms the BCR2000 from a MIDI controller into a step sequencer.
“We wanted to give everybody access to an inexpensive but powerful hardware MIDI step sequencer,” says ZAQ Audio’s Christian Stöcklmeier. “The Behringer BCR2000 is the optimal hardware platform for a step sequencer.
