Hi! I'm Steve Chapel

Welcome to my Music Site. Not only am I a professional software developer, I'm also a professional musician and live sound engineer.



My Services

Live Sound Production

I have 20 years experience doing live sound for every kind of venue. I own and run a 4-way active sound system utilizing a Presonus 32-channel digital mixer, DBX driverack 260 computer interfaced crossover and top of the line speakers to generate top rate sound.

Lighting and Stage Management

I can light up any stage! With 18 wireless DMX fixtures put in place, I can control the mood of the entire room.

Live Recording

I can record 32 channels at 96kHz resolution. I also have the ability to mix and master digital recordings in a way suitable for both the common listener and the audiofile.

Professional Musician

My true love is to play music. I'm a multi-instumentalist and an accomplished singer too.
