Admittedly I didn't know him, but have you seen how many pages are on that site. It's upto 22-pages now.

How old was he? This is his website; http://tamw.atari-users.net/ . Gosh! I'd seen that on my travels over the years.

R.I.P.

anyone who makes electronic music with modern music software would have used or come into contact with one of his vst synths or patches.....

he really has left a hole in sound design expertise... :(

From the initial letter it looks like it was very sudden.

But he did hint at some health problems on the atari midi mailing list....

but it was a shock....he was helping people out wiht technical support right up to his death...

I've never met him...but have chatted online...

It really is sad

Hi folks,
I've just received news that Tim Conrardy of (Tim's Atari MIDIworld fame) passed away suddenly yesterday.

The thread with the news can be found here:
http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic ... postorder= asc&start=0&sid=57196daddd1e51c346f8bd10e1a2f54a

He will be missed by all in the Atari community as his contribution is inestimable. There's probably no-one who doesn't owe him and big thankyou for all the effort he put into helping us all continue to make music with the easiest of all music computers.

RIP Tim and thanks

Dave.

I'm listening to a stunning ambient spacey sounding track made on Ace MIDI by Tim as I type this. I didn't know him at all, but I do recall some of his sounds which were rather special.

Rest in peace. The following emoticon is amazingly appropriate :angel:

Man, that is such a shame :-(


This guy put a lot of work into the Atari music scene. I hope someone is able to archive his site & all the stuff on it for prosperity, it would be a shame to loose all that information & people making use of all the information it provides would be a fitting tribute to the years of work he put into it & helping people experiment with music?

Only a month or so ago I was suggesting someone should visit his site to look at the DX7 synth stuff....


Sad news indeed....

Having beem an author at myAtari.net myself, I followed Tim Conrardy artikles on MIDI and sound with interest.
I liked the way he realy dug deep into the topics and got many authors to release their Atari Software into the public domain.
It is always hard if someone you knew is no more. Especially if his presence made live more fun, as he did for the Atari community.
My condolences to his family and all who knew him

Today 7 years ago.

If he had been subscribed to this site and a regular poster he would be qualified at least as an Atari Super Hero.
Fortunately his fenomenal site 'Tim's Atari MIDI World' is still online.

http://tamw.atari-users.net/

But for how long? Recently I thought it was rapidly deteriorating. But this is hopefully due to some trouble with the webhost.
I'm confident that the people who are taking care of his remembrance won't neglect or abandon it.

It seems that atari-users.net has been having server problems recently.

The site is in the Wayback machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20160131092 ... users.net/

Also Exxos has set up a mirror here: http://tamw.exxoshost.co.uk/
