Because there was no software available to suit the needs of live O.R.I. performances, Operation Re-Information had to develop its own. Simple yet amazingly flexible, BackToBasics is the award winning software that allows samples to be assigned to keys on the computer keyboard so that the computer can be played as a musical instrument.BackToBasics, now developed at Bludgeonsoft, is the premier digital sample triggering software for today\'s - and yesterday\'s - advanced computers.BackToBasics is geared toward live performance, no delayed quantized playing or locked time signatures and no MIDI sequencing, just real-time triggering of raw or manipulated samples. With BackToBasics you can turn your computer into a truly live audio performance tool. \'Just say NO\' to \'just hit play\' electronic musicians!Using BackToBasics, you can separately configure 47 keys on your computer keyboard to play any number of stereo sounds at one time (limited only by your sound card) while controlling each sample\'s pitch, volume, loop type, and more.
