Default Got my BCF 2000 and could use a little help!

Initially set it up in Mackie mode Emulation and chose the U-2(using only USB).
I installed every driver I could find,Set the control surface to Mackie,did my ins/outs on midi in control surface window,double checked in midi set up that I did not choose the BCF.
So far so good,
I was able to control,
Faders(1-8,9-16)
Track selection
mute
Play button
Push play again for pause
Stop
And rewind.
Problem is the foot switch does not put armed track into REC mode.
I am using a Tascam footswitch with the ¼ inch jack on the end(do you need a special pedal for this?)

More questions:
I switched back to pre-set mode(BCF mode,pwr up holding BC button)
And tried the learn function and had no luck on any Reaper parameter.
Hold learn key
move(for example)Fader #1
Now before I can lift my hand to move fader on Reaper the BCF display say’s “Good”
Good?
I did not do anything yet!
I was going to try and set-up my own pre-set for Reaper step by step(including putting ARMed track into REC mode)but I can’t get by step one.
Any ideals?
I have search about twenty of our threads pertaining to the BCF and they came close to explaining but usually end there(due to user giving up?or having the solution?)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I believe there's a guide on this controller in the manual. BTW- how's the quality.

Quality not bad for acouple of bones!
Its good to have faders again.
As far as the Reaper manual goes it is not very specific about which control surface you use.
Just lets you know were to put it.
See below.....
Select Options > Preferences (Ctrl+P) > Control Surfaces to access REAPER Control Surfaces Preferences.



REAPER currently supports the following external Control Surfaces:




• Behringer BCF2000

• Mackie MCU

• Mackie BabyHUI

• Frontier Designs TranzPort



Additional information regarding the setup and use of the [Frontier Designs] TranzPort with REAPER is available from the Frontier Designs website.

Click [[Image:Reaper 0b6 control surface add button.png]] to add a Control Surface.




The Control Surface window allows you to select the Control Surface, the MIDI Input and Outputs, and the Track Offset and Size of the Controller.



Select a Controller from the Control surface mode list, then set the MIDI Input and Output your Controller is using. These settings can be edited at a later date by clicking on the Edit button.



The Control surface display update frequency can be set by entering a value into the field.

I think when I get this all dialed in I'll create a work instruction specifically for the BCF and have it included in the Wiki.
I going to see if I can get it to where I need it this week-end.(3-day one at that!)
