The Zaquencer is a unique custom firmware for the Behringer BCR2000 that will turn it into a standalone MIDI step sequencer. It is not a preset but a new operating system for your BCR2000, effectively turning it into a whole different device.

We wanted to give everybody access to an inexpensive but powerful hardware MIDI step sequencer by simply upgrading the BCR.
The Behringer BCR2000 is the optimal hardware platform for a step sequencer.
It is very affordable, widely available and has the perfect controls and layout.

With releases on Labels such as Uncanny Valley, Running Back, Skylax or Permanent Vacation, Jacob Korn now belongs to the spearheads of the German house scene with his tracks and remixes as well as his live sets much in demand.

Being involved in the development of the Zaquencer Firmware in the final stage, he now added it to his arsenal for creating his unique sound:

"I already use mostly hardware synths and sequencers, but the Zaquencer still brings something to the table.

It´s as fun and intuitive as an oldschool analog sequencer, but it goes much deeper with possibilities if you want it to."

Check out Jacob Korn jamming on the Zaquencer in the following video:
