"This is a short introductory video for the Zaquencer Firmware. This turns the Behringer BCR2000 into a standalone hardware MIDI step sequencer (independent of PC) with 32 steps, 4 Tracks, flash storage for 192 patterns and many more features.

The firmware will be available mid october 2014 as a digital download for 69 Euro."

"The Zaquencer is a 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. No PC is needed for operation (only for initial upload)!

It is currently in production and will be out in Mid October 2014.

In the meantime, feel free to sign up to the newsletter and we´ll keep you up-to-date on what´s happening."

"Jacob Korn [pictured] on using the Zaquencer

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.'"
