A tribute to Tim Conrardy

Today I received the very sad news that a good friend and colleague Tim Conrardy has suddenly passed away. It appears that Tim collapsed while out hiking and never regained consciousness. I’m sure you will join with me in passing on your condolences to his wife and daughter. He will be greatly missed. Tim will probably be better known to musicians for his involvement with Camel Audio and the superb and imaginative soft synth sounds he created over the years, always prefixed by TC.

I never met Tim in person, but we have corresponded for years and I was always struck by his generosity, kindness and intelligence. Tim and I often discussed sounds and in particular the Camel Audio soft synths in relation to music we were working on. There was also a wonderful love of all things musical and I always figured that one day I would get the chance to meet up with him when in the USA and the sadness I feel at his passing is only matched by the knowledge that that meeting will never happen.

A really sad day indeed – the music world has lost a real star!
