C64 + Church Acoustics = Organ Music

Reverberations

Linus Akesson:

It struck me that, at least in theory, organ pipes should generate quite primitive sound waves. If so, how come a church organ doesn't sound like a chip tune, which is also built up from simple waveforms? Well, actually it will, if you remove the church. And if you connect a Commodore 64 home computer to a loudspeaker in a large hall, it will sound like an organ.

I defy you to listen to the rendition of “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor” and tell me that doesn’t sound like an organ.
