Background

Since picking up a guitar at a very young age, music has been all Tim has been focussed on. After gaining years of experience in both the studio and live music environments, Tim joined ARU to pass on his knowledge and experience. He works professionally as a recording and mix engineer; a producer; a remixer; and tours as a stage MIDI and keys technician.

Tim’s skills are multi-faceted, in that he has a deep academic and theoretical understanding of all aspects of music production, as well as real-world experience and knowledge of how things are really done. In addition to this, Tim is a musical artist in his own right and as such is very aware of the blurred boundary between art and science, and firmly believes in using one to create the other.
