MicroMain27 Gen2
Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 Gen2 tar Barefoots alt-i-ett konsept for monitorer til nye høyder. Thomas Barefoot hviler ikke på sine laubær og har tilbrakt de siste årene med å finjustere og videreutvikle en av de mest respekterte studiomonitorene i verden. Disse forbedringene ivaretar den uanstrengte måten Barefoot-høytalere er kjent for å presentere lyd, men er en evolusjon som gjør dem enda mer transparente og med enda bedre evne til å få frem de minste detaljene. MicroMain 27 Gen2 har den samme kompakte størrelsen for en monitor i denne klassen, med doble 10” subwoofer-elementer som sin forgjender, men med oppdateringer som er hentet fra teknologien som ble utviklet for det nye flaggskipet MiniMain 12. Nye tillegg inkluderer nye ultra-høykvalitet konvertere, 1” ring-radiator diskant, 5,25” neodymium motor mid-bass elementer med utvidet frekvensomfang, Hypex forsterkere, AES digitalinnganger, 1dB steppede poter og avansert DSP-integrasjon.

Speaker Emulation Technology
MM27 Gen2 har også fått høytaler-emulering innebygget. Barefoot har virkelig lagt seg i selen for å utvikle en naturtro modellering av klassiske studiomonitorer ved hjelp av DSP. En fjernkontroll med kabel gir deg tilgang på 4 valgså du kan sjekke miksen på en virtuell NS-10, Auratone eller et Hi-fi anlegg. Enkelt og genialt i bruk, nå kan du kryss-sjekke uten plasskrevende og praktisk vanskelige oppsett med flere sett høytalere. Nyt livet i sweet-spoten!

Emuleringene er som følger:

  • Hi-Fi - mykere topp og varmere mellomtone, med en oppførsel som ligner “vanlige” hi-fi anlegg.
  • Flat - Dette er grunnstillingen - ekte Barefoot lyd, det vil si jevn frekvensrespons og svært avslørende karakter.
  • OldScl er essensen av NS10M. Her rulles bassen og toppen av og du får en pushy mellomtone - låter miksen dritt, så vil du høre det her!
  • Cube er et nikk til Auratone - en klassisk fullrange mikromonitor. Denne er perfekt for å sjekke moderne reiseradiolyd, altså bærbar pc, iPad, osv.

The Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 Gen2 takes Barefoot’s all-in-one monitoring concept to new heights. Unwilling to rest on his laurels, Thomas Barefoot has spent years further refining one of the most revered recording studio monitors in the world. These refinements preserve the effortless translation that has defined the Barefoot brand, but are an evolution, yielding even greater transparency and inner detail. The MicroMain27 Gen2 retains the same compact form factor as its predecessor, with integrated dual 10" force-canceling subwoofers, but the MM27 Gen2 is updated with technology developed in the flagship MiniMain12. New additions include ultra-high-quality converters, a 1" ring radiator tweeter, 5.25" extended-range neodymium motor mid-bass drivers, Hypex amplification, AES digital inputs, a 1dB stepped attenuator, and advanced DSP integration.

  • Worthy evolution of a widely renowned monitor
  • New speaker emulation technology offers 4-in-1 referencing
  • Integrated dual 10" subwoofer design supports clean upper bass and mids


Worthy evolution of a widely renowned monitor
While the original MicroMain27 was amassing its stellar reviews, Thomas Barefoot remained hard at work cultivating new technology to take the MM27 to the next level. The result is the MM27 Gen2, which delivers the neutrality, form factor, and all-in-one functionality that attracted the likes of Michael Brauer, Butch Vig, Rich Costey, and Mark Linett in the first place. But, the MM27 Gen2 separates itself from its honorable predecessor in key, significant ways. Notably, Barefoot incorporated the successful technology initially implemented in their flagship MiniMain12, including the same signal path, from the converters to the Digital Signal Processor to premium Hypex amplifier modules. What's more, the MicroMain27 Gen2 offers an improved tweeter for even more accurate highs, along with new 5.25" extended-range neudymium motor mid-bass drivers, and the ultra-stable dual 10" force-cancelling subwoofers, a trio that works together smoothly and seamlessly to deliver an honest, accurate image.

New speaker emulation technology offers 4-in-1 referencing
In addition to its even, revealing voice, the MM27 Gen2 harnesses DSP power to bring you the voicing characteristics and responses of classic studio nearfield monitors. You can use the four-position wired remote to quickly switch through different voices, allowing you to preview your mix on different types of speakers, without having the clutter of multiple speaker systems. The four settings are "Old School," "Cube," "Hi-Fi," and "Flat." The "Old School" setting captures the essence of the ubiquitous NS10M, rolling off the sub-bass and top-end information, and bringing forward mid-range presence. The "Cube" setting is a nod to the "aura" of the classic full-range micro monitors of yesteryear, a valuable setting in the age of laptops, tablets, and earbuds. "Hi-Fi" sweetens the high end and warms mid-range to behave much like consumer hi-fi systems, the perfect setting for quick artist playback or when listening to favorites in the studio. Last, as you might expect, "Flat" is the prized default setting, offering the true, revealing Barefoot Sound.

Integrated dual 10" subwoofer design supports clean upper bass and mids
Part of the magic that makes the MM27 Gen2 work so well is that, like its predecessor, it offers integrated dual 10" subwoofers. Working alongside an updated 1" ring radiator tweeter and dual 5.25" midbass drivers, all with advanced neodymium motors, the MM27's two subs are housed in compact sealed enclosures, yielding stable LF control and excellent impulse response. Because the sub motor structures are locked together, the opposing forces cancel each other out, keeping the MM27 Gen2 steady even at roaring output levels. Even more importantly, the integrated sub design takes the pressure off the mid-bass drivers, resulting in a dramatically cleaned-up upper bass and midrange.

Reviews and Testimonials

 

Butch Vig

"The MicroMain 27's sound amazing! I feel like I'm listening to the music, not the speakers, and I can hear everything from top to bottom with incredible detail. There are no surprises when the mixes leave my studio, and they translate extremely well to the real world."

Producer/Engineer/Musician Butch Vig's discography includes albums for Nirvana, U2, Smashing Pumpkins, Urge Overkill, Jimmy Eat World, AFI and Soul Asylum, as well as many others. He is also the drummer for Garbage. But you already knew that, didn't you?

     
 

Jason Livermore

"I was originally looking for a speaker with enough low end that they wouldn't need an additional sub woofer. The Barefoot's gave me exactly that. I can now tell how much low end there is, what kind, and how it will react to other systems. They are loud enough to track a rock band, detailed and accurate enough to master on, and also work great at low volumes when mixing. They have eliminated the need for multiple listening devices, and have cut out the trips to the car! They are a great time saver and are also a blast to just enjoy listening to music with!!"

Jason Livermore produces, engineers, mixes and masters at Blasting Room Studios, Fort Collins, Colorado. His credits include: Rise Against, NOFX, The Lemonheads, Descendents and Puddle of Mudd.

     
 

Stephan Jenkins

"I did an extensive shootout with all the top nearfields. What ultimately sold me on the Barefoots was hearing pop singer Vanessa Carlton just like she sounds in person. With every other monitor I could always hear some of the 'box'. With the MM27s there was just her voice. As far as I'm concerned the Barefoots are the most accurate speakers in the world."

Stephan Jenkins is a singer, songwriter, musician, actor and the driving force behind Third Eye Blind. He produces major rock and pop artists such as Vanessa Carlton and is putting the final touches on his Victorian mansion/studio in San Francisco.

     
 

Mark Linett

"I'd been using the same monitors for over 10 years when Ted convinced me to try the Barefoot MM27s. The test mixes I did were so good that I ordered a pair, and the three weeks that I had to go back to using my old monitors while waiting for my MM27s to be delivered was torture."

Engineer/Mixer/Producer Mark Linett has worked closely with such seminal artists as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Randy Newman, Love, and, most recently, the New Cars.

     
 

Kevin Augunas

"The MM27 is such a major step forward that it could easily become the must-have speaker in every studio. It's the NS10 of our generation."

Kevin Augunas has been producing/engineering for more than ten years. His eclectic list of work includes Jon Brion, Sinead O'Connor, Smashmouth, Lost Prophets, Melissa Auf der Maur, Andy Dick, Persephone's Bees, Mandy Moore, The Vandals and most recently, Cold War Kids.

Dave Trumfio

"These things are almost too good...you really hear what you got, like it or not. I love the built in sub action! I'm somewhat of a "bass-aholic" and these really keep me in check. Also, I don't need to deal with bass management & crossovers."

Dave Trumfio currently runs his long time project studio Kingsize Soundlabs in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles where in conjunction with his newly acquired mix room Chateau Trumfio, he engineers and mixes most of the projects he works on. Dave has worked with Wilco, Billy Bragg, My Morning Jacket and many others.

     
 

Armando Avila

"I installed the MM27s, and the first thing I noticed was their weight, oh my god they weigh a lot!! Also, their construction is amazing, built like a tank but at the same time the design is so beautiful.... So I finished my mix and after some listening in my car and my boombox I send it to the label without surprises, the mix was exactly as I mixed it at my place. C'mon! this was my first time with those speakers and I was able to deliver a mix that translate really well to other systems!!!

Latin Grammy Award Winning producer Armando Avila has worked with RBD, Aleks Syntek, La 5a. Estacion, Belinda, Allison, Moderatto, Gloria Trevi, Natalia Lafourcade, Alejandra Guzman, OV7 and many others.
