Who is Falk Audio?
Falk Audio is part of a
consortium of small businesses based in Louisville, Kentucky who are joined
together by their activity within Louisville's music industry. They consist of
Falk Audio (electronics for
music, audio duplication and restorative recording),
Productions (recording studios and CD duplication services),
The Louisville Chorus (regional vocal ensemble),
Entertainment (DJ and sound reinforcement services), and
Nevisonics (speaker repair).
History of Falk Audio
Falk Audio was started in Louisville, Kentucky in 1971 by Gary
Falk and until 1997 was known either as Falk Recording Service or
Falk Recording Studio. Falk Recording Studio was an integral part of
the Louisville music scene, recording bands and orchestras,
industrial scripts and jingles. Falk Audio has been located in our
new building since mid-1997.
As a working musician, playing music jobs and shows in Louisville,
Gary designed a PA system for his own group (named Indigo) that was
transportable, compact and efficient and felt that there was a void
in the marketplace for a public-address system that fulfills these
requirements, not just to musicians, but to anyone requiring sound
reinforcement equipment. He remains committed to three basic
considerations: light weight, compactness and reliability. This
philosophy remains central to all of the Tiny-Myte products from Falk Audio.
The Falk Studio Console
As a saxophonist and electronics buff Gary designed and built much
of the studio gear, an activity which would later emerge as the basis
of Falk Audio. Gary has built two full-feature audio production
consoles during the course of the last 20 years. The largest console
was featured in an article in Recording Engineer/Producer
magazine in March of 1992. When Gary relinquished his studio interest
to Tim Haertel of TNT Productions and Chris Cassetta of Canyon Productions, both
of these consoles remained central to their activities. They are
still utilized on a daily basis today.
Falk Audio remains a cassette duplication and tape loading
facility, doing label printing, shrink-film services and CD
replication, but the main focus of Falk Audio today is on the custom
electronics division which manufactures the "Tiny-Myte" PA systems.
The recording studios, duplication facility and electronics division
are all located in the same building at 6303 Fern Valley Pass in
