Scott LaChapell grew up surrounded by both music and electronics, Piano lessons and electronics kits evolved into professional composing and recording. It was while working in studios in both California and Nashville that the idea that would eventually become LaChapell Audio was planted.

Together with his father Mark LaChapell, a retired senior design engineer at Lawrence Livermore Labs i.e. an actual "rocket scientist," Scott collaborated and experimented for over nine years to produce the predecessor to the 992 and ultimately the 992 itself. Testing out circuits and prototypes in various studio sessions allowed them to develop a signature sound that sits in the mix perfectly. The next products to come off the workbench carried that same signature sound and attention to detail and quality that customers have come to expect from LaChapell Audio.
