Discover The Next Industry Standard For Professional Studio Monitoring With The Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 Gen2 Studio Monitors - Pair

Quickly becoming an industry-standard in professional monitoring, the Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 Gen2 Monitor is a 3.5-way active system with 5 drive units housed in sealed enclosures spanning 30Hz to 45kHz with vanishingly low distortion, breathtaking dynamic range, and ultra-fast transient response. The MicroMain27 ring radiator tweeter is incredibly detailed and produces very wide dispersion out to its highest frequencies. The Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 new 5.25 midbass features a phalanx of advanced technology, yielding midrange detail that rivals any driver on the planet.

Barefoot Sound has teamed up with the brilliant Bruno Putzeys of Hypex to develop the powerful and completely transparent amplifier stage of the Barefoot Sound MM27 Gen2. Melding the system together is a groundbreaking new DSP crossover that has taken Thomas Barefoot more than 4 years to develop. With beautifully designed high-end converts and cutting-edge proprietary filtering techniques, the Barefoot Sound MM27 Gen2 monitor sound stage is seamlessly coherent and deeply revealing.

MEME Technology

Despite the advantages of high-resolution monitors, Thomas Barefoot realizes that many engineers still use their NS10Ms and mix cubes as secondary references. These speakers have long traditions and people find them familiar and useful for focusing on certain aspects of their mix. However, crowding one's console with those extra boxes degrades the sound field of the primary reference monitors. Not to mention, they are no longer manufactured, they need amplifiers, cable runs, and they consume more studio space.

The solution is to make the Barefoot Sound MM27 monitor sound and translate like those speakers. With the turn of a knob, one can switch from the Barefoot Sound MicroMain27s brutally revealing "Flat" response to the warmer and sweeter "Hi-Fi" setting, generically emulating the sound of some high-end consumer audio gear. More specifically the Barefoot Sound MM27 "Old School" setting closely emulates the sound of the NS10M nearfield, while the MicroMain27 Gen2 Monitor "Cube" setting emulates the mid-centric sound of classic mix cubes.

The idea is not to perfectly replicate every subtle quirk of these venerable old speakers. That would be impossible. But the Barefoot Sound MM27 Gen2 monitor can capture the essence of how they behave and translate, modeling their frequency, phase and transient responses, dynamic compression, and even specific distortion components. If you know how to work on these speakers you will feel very comfortable working on the new Barefoot Sound MM27 monitor's emulation settings.
