Now With MEME Technology
All Barefoot MM45 Studio Monitors now ship with MEME Technology, the amazing Monitor Emulation technology invented by Thomas Barefoot. The Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation technology harnesses sophisticated DSP modeling 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, from the same stereo position and without 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.
Barefoot Sound is proud to introduce their newest studio monitor, the Barefoot Sound MicroMain45. Featuring the same signal path, amplifier and driver technologies as our flagship MiniMain12, the Barefoot Sound MicroMain45 is stripped down to the bare essentials in order to deliver renowned Barefoot Sound resolution and translation at a more affordable price. Prepare yourself for the next Barefoot Sound revolution!
As a 3-way active monitor, the Barefoot MicroMain45 utilizes the same amplifier, signal path and driver technology of the MiniMain12. Downsizing the hefty 130+ lbs size of the original to a tight 35+ lbs package, the MicroMain45 features an 8” aluminum woofer, two x 2.5” aluminum midranges and a 1” tweeter. With a bass response of -3dB @ 40Hz, frequency response of 40Hz – 45 kHz (±3dB) and 53Hz – 40kHz (±1dB), this is the sound that Barefoot enthusiasts have come to know and love.
Founded on the idea of creating a new type of audio monitor, Barefoot Sound was started by Thomas Barefoot to meet the growing needs of small to mid-sized project studios. By offering well-designed monitors that could take the space of several sets of speakers, audio enthusiasts are able to have more room for other types of gear, while still having an impeccable monitoring system. The Barefoot Sound MM45 monitors follow in this lineage of incredible speakers like the MicroMain27 and MicroMain35.
