[Csnd] csound orchestration

This electronic version of the first section of Bach’s Passion According to Saint John hints that an excellent, terrific csound orchestration of the work can be done.

Unfortunately i do not have even the 10% of the knowledge to do it. I’m sure that composers as Steven Yi, Richard Boulanger, Victor Lazzarini, Michael Gogins and several others are able to do it.

Are you saying that this piece was rendered using Csound?

This is fascinating. But please tell us more. Who created it and how? Was Csound really used?

Richard

From his YouTube About page:

Instrument: Laptop (Windows 10)
Notation Software: MuseSore 3 - Ensemble Composer (Android)
DAW: Reason 12

Looking at the youtube video info, this is done by a guy named Baroquenoise, using MuseScore ( that can read actual scores ). I do not know what synth he uses. He has done quite some classical composers…

Richard

I would suspect not. No self-respecting Csounder would so totally disregard the slurs in the string parts! etc, etc, etc...

Richard Dobson

“No self-respecting Csounder would so totally
disregard the slurs in the string parts! etc, etc, etc…”

That is the point. Composers with enough csound knowledge would do __OTHER​__​great timbres. Not any
“the slurs in the string parts! etc, etc, etc…”. You didn’t understand his statement. Csoundercsounder is right about the huge possibilites for an “ochestration” of that (and others!!) great compositions.

Then the sounds most likely are from Reason. It’s good as far as I know but not nearly as deep as Csound.

I have asked him on Youtube and it is Reason 12, Subtractor synth. So nothing to do with Csound…

Pablo Frank is right. I meant OTHER timbres, whatever are suitable to that wonderful, insuperable work.

Michael Gogins I didn’t write that this work was done with csound!!! I mean that great timbres can be done with csound for this GREAT work, NOT any orchestra-imitation.

Reason is useful. I use it for the synth and samplers for our
CD and some film scores we did a while back.

Still, Csound goes places that Reason can’t. Together, they
are a great combination, along with Arturia soft synth. Makes
for a great artist’s color palette.

Amen to the Arturia synths, all of the recent versions sound very phat. Haven’t used Reason for several years. However I like LogicPro’s onboard synths and I think Max has some newer modular vco synths that are nice too, haven’t spent much time there since I found csound land though.

Really cool adaptation of the piece though, thank you for sharing.

Cabbage VSTs would do a good job as sequencer synths.

Subtractor has some good and useful functions on it.

Good overall sound.
