I am an award winning 30-year veteran of recording, mixing and producing music.

Chuck Macak is a 30-year veteran of recording and producing music.
After taking basic recording classes at a local recording studio, Chuck enrolled at the Recording Workshop, as well as the University of Ohio for recording and music business classes. After graduating at the top of his class, he worked at numerous Chicago studios, including CRC, River North, and Streeterville, eventually finding a home as head engineer for Studio 53. Over the course of five years, he recorded and produced most of the bands in the 80’s/90’s Chicago hard rock scene, including Smash Alley, Radakka, Tommi Gunn and O’Dette. He also worked with major acts like White Lion, Fleshold, Cyclone Temple and Crowbar, as well as many young musicians who went on to form some of today’s top acts–Dan Donegan of Disturbed, Sean Glass and Tim King of Soil, and Josey Scott of Saliva.
