This looks like a fun way to turn your computer into an instrument – “BackToBasics allows you to import sounds and assign them to the 47 alpha numeric keys on the standard computer keyboard so that they can be played in much the same way as a MIDI keyboard and sampler. Each of the 47 keys has its own settings for pitch, fine tune, volume, stereo pan, trigger type, pitch bender sensitivity, pitch bender limiter, and loop ranger.” [via] Link.
