Having been an electronical music producer for a while,
I got into contact with Tim by chance around 2007 or 2008,
when Camel Audio (god I loved that company) still existed, and Tim was doing the customer support for them.
He was such a sweet guy, and a total charm to dea with.
So I found it such a shame when I heard about his sudden passing in 2009.
7 years later, I'm looking for a proper sub preset for the track I'm currently working on,
and browsing through the presets of FM8, I happen to stumble upon a patch called "Red Shift",
which happens to be the title of one of the very best tracks ever made by Speedy J, an infamous techno producer,
who also made a bunch of patches for FM7 and/or FM8, if I recall correctly.
And yeah, sure enough, turn on the arpeggiator, delete most part of the notes,
and you have the basics for the track.
Obviously Jochem Paap (Speedy J)'s massive production skills turned this sound into a beautiful track that's slowly becoming a classic in the techno scene, but nonetheless, I was really thrilled to discover this sound was made by Tim Conrardy.
I have lost my favourite sister to cancer 5 years ago, when she was only 37, and because both of us were the only creative ones in our family and she was the kindest person you could imagine, I miss her every day.
I wish more people would post some of their memories of Tim on this site.
If anything, Tim made sounds that are still being used by musicians to this day and will no doubt be continued to get used in the future. My sister made paintings, so yeah... Not a lot of chance of people still using her work nowadays. But such is life, I guess. :)
Nonetheless, I would like to thank Tim Conrardy for the work he has done for the synth community, and for the wonderful kindly natured person he has been all those years...
May there be many others remembering him, and using his sounds in the years yet to come :)

||Missing you still everyday
||September 9, 2015
JUst stopped y to tell you my music is getting stronger everyday, Miss our monthly chats, memories of 35 years as friends, We will look in on Diane this year at Xmas time. See you across the starfield one day....
Brother Tim, I miss you. I was thinking of you today. I finally started converting our old cassette recordings to mp3, although some of our best may not turn out on the tape, unless I can find a way to improve what there is. I have many regrets for not driving down more often to record more and move ahead faster on our projects. All I can do is think about you, pray for your family, continue to clean up, restore, and enhance the recordings we have....and look forward to the day when we will walk those streets with all the time in the world to make even greater music. Blessings, my friend and brother. You are awesome!

||A very unpleasant surprise
||July 16, 2014
Having had no contact with Tim for years, in the last couple of days I sent a couple of emails to his old hotmail address concerning my Fractal Music ST software, about which he was so enthusiastic on the TAMS site. Wondering if there might be a more up to date email address, I Googled his name, only to find this site, which is a real shock. I didn't know Tim at all, my only contact having been about my program and his site, but I was always grateful for his fulsome support. My sincerest condolences to Tim's friends and family, who I know must still miss him dreadfully, even five years on.
||Thank you so much for all the inspiration!!

I am sitting in my home office on a conference call and I received a meeting request with an attendee whose last name is Conrardy. The first thing that popped into my mind was "I wonder if she's related to Tim." After the search results came up I was shocked to learn that you had passed on more than three years ago. We exchanged a few emails over the years about the Atari music world, but I didn't know you. I feel sad that I didn't know you as the outpouring of well wishes have allowed me to get to know you better. Thank you for all your hard work for the Atari software world. That was such a small part of your life. My thoughts go out to your family and friends across the world. That was a good first set, Tim, see you after the break. Many thanks!
