Welcome to Soundtemple

Soundtemple is the mantlepiece for my pursuits in the area of music technology.  You’ll find music, dj tools and studio tools.

I offer training in DJ’ing and music production with Ableton.

I’m a sound designer, inventor, problem solver in the area of music technology.


AllChords is an extension for your Push Controller. I built it to simplify my composition process and to put the power of music theory at my fingertips.

Not being a keyboard player, AllChords allows me to play chords with one finger and melodies without having to remember complicated fingering, while the display keeps me informed of the theory behind everything I am doing.

QUICK GUIDE to Producing

The focus of this guide is on producing electronic dance music with Ableton.

Just because it is now possible to have a powerful studio on a laptop doesn’t mean it’s a piece of cake to produce a hit record or a record at all for that matter!  It’s a hobby and we want to enjoy our time producing but getting results aren’t going to happen by just fumbling around.

We need to be competent with a set of production tools, and we need a methodology for taking the song idea through to song completion

There is no singular approach to successful producing.  Ultimately, every producer develops their own.  This guide offers a starting point by illustrating the fundamental concepts critical to successful producing.  It’s not a complete “How to…”  rather it provides an introduction to each of these key areas with simple explanations and quick tips on what’s involved to develop each one.

Happy customers…

I come from a band background writing and recording music and have recently started DJing. Prior to starting the course I had played with Ableton Live but found it to be very daunting. The 8 week course presents the functionality of Ableton Live in a logical way that gets you understanding and laying down tracks and doing your own re-mixes in no time. Every week of this course there was something that I learned about Ableton that blew me away. Tim is a great teacher and the course is highly recommended for anybody interested in electronic music production.
