To this day—more than 18 years later—I still see web traffic from people looking for the CWU website.
CWU was an online professional resource for Cubase users that serviced to mastering the optimization of a 90′s desktop computer for multi-track audio and midi recording. It was very popular in the mid and late 90′s, and at the time I was fairly well known for that website.
You can still access much of the CWU site by using the WayBack Machine here.
The forum section was one of the very first popular website forums that utilize the UBB platform.
In 1998, CWU was honored as an authority on audio and midi in a published article.
In 1998, CWU was reviewed in Club Cubase Magazine.
Nuendo Beta Team
In 1999, I entered into a contract for beta testing and software ideas for Steinberg Nuendo. I submitted a lot of feature-set ideas, many of which were implemented—many of those features have since migrated to other software such as Pro Tools and Logic.
Computer Music Magazine
In the year 2000, CWU was reviewed in Computer Music magazine.
While the CWU website is no longer around, I’m still heavily active in the music and audio technology industry.
At the time of writing this, since CWU was closed, I have worked with artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Dizzy of Gun’s N’ Roses, 2 Chainiz, The Bangles, Future, Richard Thompson, Crooked I of Slaughterhouse, film composer Nathan Furst (Need For Speed, Act of Valor, etc), Jae Deal (Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, Diddy, Faith Evans, T-Pain, and Jessica Simpson), Scott Radinsky of Pulley & Ten Foot Pole, J.lbs (R. Kelly), Matt Malley of Counting Crows, Gucci Mane, Stan Bush, Rick Ross, Joel Larson (Lee Michaels, The Turtles), Reggie Knighton (The Grass Roots), The K.I.D (2 Chainz, Future, Wiz), Big Bass Brian Gardner, Lady Godivah (Wiz), Keith Olsen, Nick Vernier Band (Yoko Ono, The Monkeys), Felecia C.S. (Ja Rule, American Idol, Making The Band), and more.
In 1999 / 2000 I opened my commercial recording studio, and in 2011 I began doing regular online mix and mastering work. In early 2014 I moved my online mixing and mastering services to onelinemixingmaster.com, and soon after I began writing articles to help producers and engineers online with getting over difficult technical hurdles.
