‘Switched On’ Version Of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor

Synthesist Sean Christopher created this ‘switched-on’ style arrangement of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor.

Here’s what Christopher has to say about the technical details:

I recreated Bach’s genius using a Baloran the River synth, which was multitracked to Steinberg’s Cubase 10 Pro.

The reverb is from Exponential Audio’s awesome R4 reverb plugin.

I’m estimating that I spent close to 100 hours putting this together….and in the end I believe that it was worth every single minute. Working on Bach pieces is very humbling. My God that man was a genius!

  1. In time, the organ was the first synthesizer (with additive synthesis)… cfr. the movie ‘Interstellar’… and a documentary in which Hans Zimmer explains his enthousiasm for this synth-ancestry instrument and his player in that church…

    Well done interpretation and arrangment with a 21st century synthesizer.
