Sure it's possible. All that is required is for each controller number
and channel combination to be unique. MIDI has 16 channels, and 127
controller numbers, yielding 2032 unique combinations.

On the setup I use, each set of controls on the bcf2000 (associated
fader, knob, buttons, etc) is on a different channel, 1-8 (i think this
is factory preset 2). An easy way to add another would be the same
controller numbers on channels 9-16.
