About the Chaffee Sound

Chris Chaffee is the Chaffee Sound... an audio engineer in the Buffalo, New York area for over twenty years with a degree in music business and advanced training in audio/video production and technology. Knowledgeable and experienced having travelled coast to coast making recordings and mixing sound from Boston to San Jose as well as Canada and Europe. Formerly chief audio engineer at Mark Custom Recording, Inc., Chris is talented and reliable with credits in all musical genres primarily the classical and jazz field. With unequalled attention to detail and an unforgiving ear for perfection, he is a specialist at on-location live concert recording, digital audio and video editing as well as live audio production and concert sound.

Chris Chaffee technically started his career while attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA., but his experience goes back further to high school where he worked in the audio-visual department and mixed sound for the annual musical productions. After expanding into demo recording and live sound for rock and jazz bands both in his hometown and in Boston, Chris moved on from Berklee to attend The Art Institute of Pittsburgh where he studied music and video business while receiving extensive training in audio and video production. In 1994 while in Pittsburgh, Chris founded Chaffee Sound Productions - a company providing audio recording, concert CD production and live sound services. Graduating from AIP with honors in 1995, Chris returned to Western New York and spent the next five years building a business as well as a solid reputation.

In 2000, Chris accepted a position with the respected Mark Custom Recording Service and was soon promoted to chief engineer. While at that position he travelled extensively, recording concert performances at music festivals all over North America as well as Europe. Making recordings for Mark Records gave him the opportunity to capture some fantastic performances of world renowned wind and jazz ensembles including; The United States Air Force Band, Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra, The United States Army Jazz Ambassadors and the US Air Force Band Airmen of Note. During his tenure Chris also had the honor of recording some amazing live performances from a few world famous jazz musicians including; Jon Faddis, Doc Severensen, Bunky Green, Vince DiMartino, Bobby Shew and Jeff Jarvis. After seven years, the travel became too much and wanting to explore other avenues, Chris resigned from his position at MCRS, returning to full time operation of Chaffee Sound Productions.

Since April of 2007, Chaffee Sound Productions has expanded its clientele and moved its base of operations to beautiful Orchard Park, New York. Chaffee Sound currently offers a number of services from sound recording & audio production to live sound. With a very diverse clientele that includes barbershop choruses, professional musicians and record companies as well as several high school and college music departments, Chaffee Sound Productions can handle any project, big or small.
